“I just wanted to write and say that Empower Missions and our work sharing GLOW tracts last week in Lund, Sweden was a much needed inspiration and spiritual breath of fresh air in my life! It was such a blessing to be surrounded by so many other fellow Christians that are on fire for Jesus and have an eye single for Him and His glory. It was so exciting to share Jesus’ love with the people of Sweden! I greatly appreciate the ministry that Empower Missions is doing, and I will be praying continually for their work as they go forward. I hope to be a part of that work again soon!”


“Joakim has been a blessing to me in many ways. The messages I have heard him share have helped me to understand the Word of God better. But what has impressed me the most has been to first-hand see his passion to help people understand God better through personal Bible Studies.”

“I remember when I was 12 years old, in my first meeting with Jesus, I went to a lecture about the book of Revelation. Through this book I got to know Jesus better, and learned more of his love and care for each of our lives. But still I didn’t have this personal experience with Him. Thanks to Empower Missions, because through your sermons like Fishermen’s Reform, I understood that I am not only a viewer, but actively I am to be a part of the plan of salvation, working with Him and for Him. Not only for me, but that others will be blessed like I have. I also learned that our faith needs to mature every day for taking decisions because the throne in our heart cannot be divided. Knowing that every day it affects us when making decisions, the sermon An Undivided Throne was another blessing for my personal life. God bless you!”


“I am gladly reading and sharing the message of hope with friends who are looking for the soon coming of our saviour. I will be grateful if i can be subscribed to the newsletters and other available materials.”


“Thanks for taking your time to come here! It has been a true blessing, and has certainly created a greater desire in me to study Revelation more deeply. It was a pleasure getting to know you, I’m looking forward to meet you again, God willing. May He bless you and your ministry.”


“I just wanted to say I really appreciate the work you and your brother are doing. It is an encouragement to me to do more in spreading God’s word for the times we are living in. Not many men are willing to speak the truth, but we all need to hear it.”


“I have listened many times your lecture on how to know God’s will. The five keys have helped me a lot!”


“Christian, thank you for these classes on Revelation! It was very refreshing to me to go over these chapters one more time. May God bless you and your ministry.”


“Even though I‚Äôve been raised in an Adventist family, I started to wander away from God at a quite early age. My friends had a very bad influence on me and brought me to listen to bad music, watching bad movies etc. My character became corrupted and I totally ignored the thought of a God for a long time. I was more pleased to just live my life like everyone else was doing. Slowly but surely God lead me back to him by putting big obstacles in my life, making me rethink everything and to rebuild my faith. Today I can surely say that there is a God! And I want especially thank Empower Missions for one of their presentations: An Undivided Throne. Even though, I had at the point left my old life behind, I really could identify myself in the message preached, and I believe that the message will be ultimately relevant for the rest of my life. The sermon left me as well with a commitment to get baptized, which I am very glad for. I am very happy for the hard work which is put into upholding Empower Missions, and I‚Äôm sure that it will be a great tool for me to lead people to Christ.”


“As a young graduated, many important choices are ahead. As a christian scientist, I face challenges and some doubts in my everyday life. I often wanted to take my own decision but my life was still empty. I recently had an opportunity for a volunteering project in environment in Togo. This time, I really wanted to clearly know the will of God for my life. I discovered The sermons an outworking of his will and How to know God’s will for Your life on the Empower Missions website, and it inspired me to experience a praying, individually. As I was fasting, I received the call for a full-time job that will enable me to pay all the fees that I will have for my volunteering project to Togo. I think that God wants me to make a difference in people’s life and in my hometown as well. I feel really thankful to God for the Empowers Missions ministry that has a positive impact on my faith and helping me in my journey with God.”


“As I grew up as an atheist and never wanted anything to do with any kind of religion it was unthinkable to me that I would ever agree to receive a Bible study. Yet, I was so impressed by these young Christians that genuinely and earnestly sought to change the world to the better. They listened well and treated me with so much love and care. So I said yes to Joakim when he asked me to have a look at the Bible. I was resisting the day before and found some friendly excuse to not have to study with him and put him off to the next day. I hoped he would forget but he didn’t. So I gave up and thought I’d do him a favor as he was such a nice guy.¬† What I learned in that Bible study changed my life. Today I am a mission-minded believer in the Son of God and daily I give my life to the Lord. I desire to see the work of Empower Missions to continue that many more souls may be reached with the Good News of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So whatever the Lord puts on your heart to do to support these devoted men, please do it!”


“At the time when I’ve read your experience “Imprisoned to Witness”. One sentence moved me from my comfort zone and I decided to go to visit a catholic friend who had bad motorcycle accident. I did not wanted to do that because of the fears I had from the hospital and because I had no money to go that far just for a visit. But reading through what you’ve been and how you ministered in prison I knew that God will help me to do something for this man also. …And having in mind the following you wrote: “”I would rather trade the presence of sunshine where I can enjoy life, ministering to someone’s needs in the shadow.”” I was able to see that man putting his hands alone in prayer for the first time in his life after couple of days being in the hospital reading him from the Bible and writing him Bible verses which how he said, give him more strength to fight with the pain he had… So after going through a lot of difficulties I know that it was worth the sacrifice. And for the quote from Ellen White you put in the same article ‚ÄùIt is in unselfish ministry that true happiness is found.‚Äù (Ellen G. White, 7T p.49) I can say indeed it is! Thank you for empowering me for a mission and Thanks God for the experience he gave me after reading yours.”


‘”When I was 16 my great goal in life was to become a professional cross country skier. For some time I was exercising so heavily that my coach said I did it way too much. All spare time and all my money was used to gratify my own desire, a desire to become best. In this time Joakim Hjortland asked me to join a Bible Study group. I said yes. I was gripped by the messages, which were clear and solid Adventist messages in line with the church’s beliefs. I decided to read my until then unused Bible. God’s word is like a two-edged sword. My desire to become best, was cut off, and replaced with an earnest desire to do God’s will and serve other people as Jesus did. Half a year later, I was baptized in the faith of Christ and became a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.”
