I am a father of two children, Emma and Aatu and husband of Anne. We are living in Finland on the west coast, in the small town of Kaustinen. I have worked as a pastor in Finland for ten years. My history with Roma ministry includes five years mission work in Bosnia -Herzegovina. We were working there with the local church in Tuzla city, reaching out to the surrounding Roma communities.
Upon returning to Finland, I continued working as a pastor and served as part-time Mission Coordinator of the work among the Roma people in Eastern Europe at Fida International. Fida is a mission organization owned by Finnish Pentecostal churches.
Recently, I began working full-time as Mission Coordinator of the work among the Roma people in Eastern Europe at Fida International. I also have Privilege to be part of Roma Networks and a member of board. I have a dream to see Roma communities changed through the gospel and that’s why I want to be part of this mission and put my effort in it.
