Missionary Talks 46: Rob Willoughby

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 6:45 pm on Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Rob Willoughby and his family are on deputation to go to the country of Estonia. The Willoughbys are working to get to the field by the end of the year and are excited about getting started in the work.

In this episode he talks with us about language learning and some of the culture of Estonia. He shares some facts about the country of Estonia that were rather surprising to me.

Hi David,
thanks for a great show. I’m a Swede and I’m really thankful that I found Missionary Talks for I’m myself longing for the time when I get the chance to be a missionary outside of Sweden. Until than I’ll spread the word here.

In your intervju with Rob Willoughby I found it a little offended how you talked about Lutherans and Orthodox Christians. I know there’s a lot of “name-Christian” in a for example Church of Sweden but there is also a lot of us born again Christian. Christians belonging to a Lutheren or a Ortordox denomination are also Christians.
I just wanted to let you know…

All the best to you
/Henrik Persson

Great show! It was nice to hear about Rob’s calling to Estonia and how he was realistic about the challenges he’s facing there, but that God was still calling him there regardless.

I would like to answer the comment by Henrik Persson from Sweden.

I believe that Henrik is right when he pointed out that there are born again Christians in the Lutheran and Orthodox denominations. I am convinced that Martin Luther, from which Lutheranism gets its name, was born again.

But remember that before Martin Luther was truly born again, he was a member of a “Christian” denomination. Luther was very religious. He was a monk and an ordained priest! I believe that there are many people in Estonia who are searching for the truth, just like Martin Luther.

As a missionary in Estonia I hope to share the truth with the Estonians who are non-religious, as well as with the many “Martin Luthers” within the denominations.

For Estonia,

Rob Willoughby
