"As we journey through life we have the privilege and joy, once in a while, of meeting some remarkable people who, because of their humility and love for the God of the Bible, are quite unique and who by their gifts and calling are a huge blessing to the Body of Christ. Susanna Kokkonen is such a person. She is a highly qualified scholar, an accomplished linguist and a dedicated professional operative.
Her work at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem over the past ten years has been recognized and highly esteemed by people all over the world. Most of all, however, it is her Christian character that gives her credibility, power and influence everywhere she goes. Knowing her is a joy and a source of enrichment for one's own life."
