April, May 2021 update
3 teams

 Interns training time. 
Fala women.
Koi Ewangelizacja

There are a lot of TEAMs that I can say I'm part of. Probably you could easily name at least 3 teams or groups that you feel a part of. For me, recently, there are 3 very important teams in my ministry. English Camp TEAM. Summer Interns TEAM. KOI Ewangelizacja TEAM. I invite you to read what has happened recently within the activities of these 3 TEAMS that I have the privilege to lead.

 Interns training time.

As you could read in my last update: 5 amazing young people join our team for the summer! 
Thanks to God's blessing and generosity of many people 2 of them are already fully funded, the other 3 are above 50% and in total, they all need around $1000. As they are on the final run with support raising, please join us in prayer and thanksgiving to God for His presence in this process.

As this is my April-May newsletter, on April 10th we met in Poznań for one-day training for interns. Thanks to KNS Church we could meet face-to-face in their service room, as in that time in Poland gathering in the larger group wasn't allowed. Three of our summer interns are a part of that church. We are very blessed by the community of KNS and full of thankfulness to God for all that He is providing. 

April training was mostly about Vision and ministry preparation in the aspect of how to serve others, how to support local churches and youth groups. 

On the last weekend of May, we met again, this time in Wisła,  for Intern Training to focus this time more on the aspect of how to serve God together better, well, and in a healthy way:
Teamwork & rules, conflict & problem solving, taking care of others and yourself on a mission with respect to need of rest & refuel,  - that is something not only interns need to be reminded of a before very intensive season of summer camps. 

Usually, such training is organized by Josiah Venture in the Czech Republic internationally, together for all summer interns from other JV countries. This year, due to pandemics, each country is organizing it independently. I'm very proud of my team, they did a great job leading a different sessions and taking care of interns.

  Fala women's time. 

This year again I was having the privilege to help in organizing the baby shower of one of our JV-Fala missionaries Agata. It was a lovely day, all-woman together, delicious snacks, and great reflection time during the clay workshop! I'm so very happy that I can be a part of a team of such a beautiful and godly woman. 

KOI Ewangelizacja
Key Investment Area - evangelization 

From the left on the picture above: Szczepan, Adam, me, Ellie, Alicja, Ola, Becca. With Korban (who is not in the photo) this team o 8 of us worked hard for the last several months focusing on the aspect of how to support youth leaders best in the aspect of evangelization. My role was to manage summer season preparation for all Fala missionaries. This summer whole Fala team is going to support summer evangelical camps in Poland. 

As a team of the Fala Asociation, we conduct very diverse activities in various areas, however, each ministry in each program is obliged and implemented in such a way that:
- support local church development
- serve in imitation of the ministry of Jesus Christ
- equip for multiplication
Inspired by Christ, we believe that both the commandment of service and its model are visible in His life and in what He said. Seeing how Jesus emphasized relationships and willingness to pay the price for living the gospel, we are ready to do so to bear lasting fruit. We want to be present in the lives of leaders and show them genuinely what discipleship is like. Our ministry is designed to intentionally equip leaders and accompany them to educate them in their daily lives, as Jesus did with his disciples. Therefore, this summer, we will all (as Fala) meet with leaders in their environments, communities, and churches, and for a week we will be part of their ministry as we strive to do so.
I am asking you for a special prayer for the upcoming summer. For our hearts to be fully committed and devoted to the service we will be a part of in local churches. 

Prayer requests

Would you please join me in praying for our ministry in Poland?

  • Summer Camps: participants, promotions, covid-19 restrictions, closed borders - let all that will not stop us and youth leaders 
  • Open borders in Poland so that US citizens could fly in and help us with camps
  • EC team: Gods protection in healthy, good strength, full of energy, and Gods spirit
