What if your church did not exist? For that matter, what if there were not Bible-believing, Gospel-preaching churches in your community? Who would build relationships and share God’s love? How would people’s trajectory’s be changed from death to life?
Prior to his retirement from Temple Baptist Church (now Communitas Church) in Brainerd, MN, Bob Evan was researching historical documents for the church’s 130th anniversary. He came upon a number of “newsletters” and meeting minutes from the origins of the church. The newsletters were written by and to, other Swedish immigrants in the Brainerd area. And, they were written in Swedish.
