Logan and Carla
They hit the ground running, in the two months they've been here they've bought a car in order to get around, found an apartment to rent, got Carla her residency permit, got involved in the University ministry, started receiving lots of groups, started Icelandic language classes and Logan started preaching. 
All that to sum up that things have been quite busy on this end, resulting in us not being able to get the update emails out last month.
So far we've had a vision tour with pastors and ministry leaders from Tennessee, Lousiana and Virginia, had a visit from Veritas City Church from DC doing surveys and sharing the gospel on the streets, book delivery from a representative of the Gospel Coalition, had a group of church planters from the New City Network with us and two professors.
We are so excited about the partnerships we already have with so many different churches, and are also very excited about the opportunity to partner with more churches to see the gospel spread in Iceland.

As I write this we just had a team from California come over for a visit, pray that the conversations that were had would have an impact on the people here and strengthen the gospel efforts in Iceland.
Doubt Nights
In the last two months we've done two doubt nights at the last Friday of every month, for April we kept an Easter theme where we tackled the often raised objection to Christianity that the resurrection accounts of the gospels are contradictory which fostered a great conversation with the group where we looked into the claims with a Bible open.
In May we had a visit from a Professor and an Adjunct Professor from the History and Philosophy department at a state university in Tennessee who dealt with the often raised objection from a historical perspective as to how we can know that Jesus really existed and wasn't just based on other previous myths or lies which was well received. 

The objective with doubt nights is to have it outside of the church context, so far we've been welcomed at a Café downtown, and to create an environment were curious Christians and people asking questions can bring them up to seek answers.
While the professors were here they also did a few classes for our people on philosophy and history, and how that can relate to evangelism in seeking to answer objections and know the grounding for your faith more clearly specifically from the standpoint of history and philosophy.

It was a great time celebrating easter together and the finished work of Christ, this year we did something extra which we hope to do annually, to get together as a church family on Long Friday, sing together and have a devotional and eat together.
Logan became an elder

As Logan and Carla are going to be working with our church for the next year quickly following him coming over to the country we had a membership meeting and voted unanimously to make Logan Douglas the 2nd local elder in Loftstofan Baptistakirkja.
Our new van!

Due to your generosity we had the ability to purchase a new van for the Iceland Project to be used for groups coming over to the country and help with logistics!
Regular Ministry

Outside of that the church has of course continued to give itself to the regular ministry of preaching God's word, gathering together and encouraging one another.

Outside of that we've been planning for the summer, the year, getting on the same page and we are also glad to announce that the Iceland Project is finally a fully registered 501c3 in the USA!
