Mission Experiences in Sweden, Uganda, and Kenya
By Rev. Krystina Meyers
The scripture says “seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you”. If it wasn’t for this revelation in my life, I don’t believe I would have ever gone on the missions God has sent me on, nor would I have had the means to go.
I would like to share some of my burden and experiences with you. Nothing satisfies me more than being able to kneel in the dirt and pray for someone as they receive the Holy Ghost. There were times I had to walk in negative twenty degree weather to go teach a bible study at a University filled with international students who have never heard about Jesus. For me, it was a privilege to be able to serve and teach the Word. To some this may seem pointless, but to me it means everything. Service is in my blood and fills my life with joy. I love seeing lives changed by Jesus. When I hear the voice of God saying “Go,” I will Go!
During my three months in Sweden I was able to minister through many different facets. I started a bible study group with international students, which at one time had almost every nationality present. I did outreach in Falun, Sweden. I spent hours ministering through hospitality and friendship. I was able to help in the music ministry by playing the piano for their worship leader.
I believe a large purpose of my mission to Sweden was to go to Falun and bring support to the work. As a small work, the saints carry a heavy load and it was a blessing to me to be able to help them carry some of that load. Both in prayer and actual labor I found myself so full of joy giving to the work of the church. Today, I still consider them my family and love knowing God is rewarding them for their faithfulness.

My mission to Uganda and Kenya was much different in purpose. In Kenya I was asked to minister the Oneness message to hundreds of Trinitarian pastors and saints. I watched as God used the other ministers with me and weaved the beautiful gospel message together. We baptized several souls in Jesus name. Today we have received reports of hundreds being baptized in Jesus name because of the revelation of the Oneness of God these Trinitarian pastors received at those conferences.
In Uganda, we ministered to the church. We traveled to some of the villages and ministered there, but spent a large majority of our time encouraging our brothers and sisters in the Lord. We also prayed with some of the orphans at the orphanage and saw them filled with the Holy Ghost.

A piece of my heart still stays in both of these countries and I pray the Lord will allow me another opportunity to return. However, God truly has blessed me with wonderful opportunities to minister and if I can’t, I am fulfilled by the reports from my family in those countries. Truly these people believe in the Bible when it says, and these signs shall follow the believers, and I do too!
