June Update 2019


Dear Friends,

Warm greetings from Poland!
Our volunteers and staff are quite busy all the time, but there are annual peaks in May-June and October-November. Many events happen as we are blessed with leaders who can act independently. We avoid centralization, seeing God working in many areas at once.

Outback in Europe…

This year the Outback weekend preparations were more complex, as the “Big Top” tent had to be replaced, due to winter damage. Fortunately, our hosts at the H2O center found a donor who paid for a new one! Hallelujah! But we had to install a new stage, lights and decor in just 10 days before the first Czech Outback that uses the same premises as we use for our Polish Outbacks. Meanwhile, three young Poles went to help with a Ukraine Outback (and returned very happy and inspired). Where also US directors, Mack and Bill were present. Andrzej Pilch went to Croatia, and again, was joined by Steve from US – they helped with the first full-blown Croat Outback. We are constantly amazed at how this program connects with people and many decide to follow Christ and allow Him to transform their family lives! (The praise belongs to God.) Our last Outback was the best ever, extremely strong testimonies. Thank You, Lord, for giving us such a tool!

Jesus.net anniversary…

At the same time, Filip and Robert went to the Jesus.net conference in Rotterdam, where the 10 th anniversary of the starting this work was celebrated. Actually, we in Poland started to collaborate with French and Dutch before that date, 13 years ago, with the first Polish web page being displayed on July 29, 2008. I will never forget this date; it pushed our media ministry in a new direction.

Special training…

Now we specialize in implementing measurable, effective discipleship – on line and off line. We are convinced this is of primary importance to the world of Christianity! We provide intensive training in using our tools methodology. I recently spent sic days with two ladies representing GDI (Global Discipleship Initiative) leader, Greg Ogden and LWL (Life without Limbs) leader, Nick Vujicic. In June we will provide training for four Americans representing two other ministries interested in on-line discipleship. It seems likely that we will have to provide another training course at the end of August as the demand continues to grow.

Events, conferences, etc…

June 2nd was the major event prepared by 50 local churches and ministries, 15,000 people met at a stadium in Wroclaw. Our ministry was providing the telephone follow-up program, based on text, courses, multimedia, church meetings, etc. This is the first time ever for Nick Vujicic that instead of an altar call to come forward, people were urged to send a text about their desire to give their lives to Jesus, 3.460 people responded! Please, pray for them, that it will transform their lives! If this proves practical and effective, the evangelist (Nick Vujicic) hopes to use this model all over the World and we plan to serve them, opening a new discipleship digital platform.

There was also an ELF (European Leadership Forum) recently, great opportunity to connect with old and new friends, very helpful!

Forum of European Leaders held in Wisla end May.

We went also to Czech, Prague (drove here overnight) where another conference is held, where our guys provide PA/multimedia requirements. It is good to be useful for a great purpose!

Friends, Thank you for all your friendship and involvement. We deeply appreciate it! Together, we may change the World, in the power of Holy Spirit!
Yours in Him

Henryk

  • 289 evangelistic courses finished

What do people look for on our websites:
  • When should I talk to God and how to talk with him? Can I ask for something? Will he answer me in some way?
    Woman, 22-24
  • I wonder why there are so many Christian religions if we have one Word of God, one Teacher – Jesus?
    Man, >65
  • What to do when thoughts about pornography are bullying us so much that we can not stop thinking about them? How to overcome them?
    Woman, 12-14
  • What is God’s Wrath? Is God still using that? Does God punish me – for example with illness or failure?
    Man, 25-34
  • I became addicted to the tarot. Besides that I feel very lonely. I feel emptiness and I miss real friendships in my life so much that I can cry at night and not sleep. How can I get rid of the tarot and find friendships according to the Bible?
    Woman, 35-44
