Daniel & Solveig Kinda, Bible teachers in Greenland

Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20

The ministry

There are many Mission Fields throughout the World, and all have a purpose. The Lord called us to take His Word to places where most people won’t go. So please help us to fulfill that calling; ’To take the gospel to the Top of the World’ - Northern Greenland.

About Greenland

To understand what the Lord has called us to do, one needs to understand a little about the country and culture of Greenland. Remoteness and isolation are realities of life for Greenlanders and contribute greatly to the people's incredible resilience. It's a small population in a vast country that can be -30 or more, much of the long winter.

Summer Ministry

Our summer ministry in Northern Greenland consists of traveling up the coast to different villages by our boat called "Qaamaneq". Most of the year these remote villages are completely blocked due to the severe coastal icing conditions and weather, which makes traveling north impossible most of the year.

Winter Ministry

Due to extreme weather conditions between winters and summers here in Northern Greenland, our ministry has to change with the seasons. During our summer months up north, which is June, July and August, give or take a month, we travel in our boat "Qaamaneq" to villages teaching the Bible, but in the winter months we are basically land locked in our town, Qasigiannguit, of about 1000 people.

The Challenge

When embarking on an undertaking as navigating the 48-foot boat, "Qaamaneq" (Meaning "Light" in Greenlandic) up the northern coast of Greenland, toward the North Pole, it has many different challenges, which makes mission work in this area extremely difficult. Some of the challenges are: a permanent ice­ cap just a few miles away, the cold always being an issue, even in the summertime there are frigid waters, icebergs, and cold winds fighting against you.

If weather and storms are not enough while traveling north, there are polar bears to contend with that want to come on board for dinner-and not as guests! Refueling points are scarce and supplies of food and fresh water, to sustain the crew for a month or more at a time, must be brought along.

On top of that, are the challenges of reaching out to a northern culture of Greenlandic people that are a tightly closed society with strong spiritual beliefs rooted hundreds of years back mixed with Christianity, making it a challenge to teach the true heart of the Gospel: That the only way to the Father (and thereby heaven) is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, repenting from our sins and making Him Lord of our lives forever.

These are just some of the challenges we (Daniel & Solveig) will face as we take His Word to the top of the world. Prayerful planning and having a committed group of prayer warriors is a must to ensure our safety and fulfill the calling of the Lord to teach the Bible to the northern Greenlandic people.

This is what gets our boat moving.

Light of the World is a non-profit organization which is solely funded by donations; mostly from individuals, but also from churches who believe in the ministry.

In this manner Light of the World, never incurring debts or loans, but thru the faithfulness of God and the donors who supported us, purchased the boat "Qaamaneq" in 2017. You can read about boat, click here.

Spearheading the ministry are Daniel & Solveig Kinda, who are Bible teachers in Qasigiannguit, Greenland. To read their story, click here.

In the summer months the boat Qaamaneq, will be use to travel North in Greenland; support for these travels in form of fuel and maintenance of the boat is an ongoing need. Daniel and Solveig will be living on the boat as the go north, and need food and supplies for a month or two during the summer season since the sea freezes over in the winter. Every year boat is stored in a boat yard for about 8 months out the year, which is when we do the maintenance.
