It was a delightful, sunny Saturday morning as over 300 women from all across Minnesota came to worship, fellowship, hear from guest speakers, and invest into the ministry of Project Life.

We had the privilege of being lead in worship by Stephanie MacDonald, Worship Associate with Cedar Valley Church, and hearing a powerful message by Minnesota missionary, Olivia Puccini.

After serving eight years as a missionary to Armenia, Olivia’s family moved to Tallinn, Estonia to plant a church in the most non-religious country in the world! In September 2014, Focus church began and Olivia continues to serve as a church leader and music pastor. Olivia lives in Tallinn with her husband, Nick, her two children (Oliver – age 12; Ava- age 8), a great dog named Rue, a Soviet upright piano, and her love of writing. Connect to Olivia’s blog.
