Betel church now offers free classes for migrants to learn Norwegian, a cooking school, a Saturday night mocktail bar, and a conversation café. These are just the start of what they hope will become a bigger program over time.
Delfred and Hanna Onde are both students in the Norwegian classes and the center’s managers. Like Matteson, they are also committed missionaries, having served in Estonia and several other countries before being invited to Oslo. Their experience in helping establish a Center of Influence in Tallin, Estonia, was invaluable in helping bring new life to the old church.
