Estonia -- Jose Zayas and the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association reveals the results of their evangelistic meetings in Estonia last month. Zayas says, "After Communism fell, people turned to God. But, in the last seven-ten years, they really turned to things. But now, they found an emptiness, so we were able to have meetings for all sorts of groups, ladies groups, business professional leaders, students who are in the schools, sharing the hope of Christ that goes beyond things." Zayas explains that their work is helping the body of Christ in Estonia. "We've been working with local churches. They're already working on the follow-up as of now. There (are) lots of student groups in schools being formed to follow-up on the students who responded. So, pray for the work of the local church, they have so many people who've responded, and pray that God uses them to connect them with a local body." They hope to see a Christian revival soon in this prior Communist state.
