March 2020 Update

Dear Friends,

Warm greetings from Poland! How good it is to be in the hands of our Lord, not needing to be afraid of Coronavirus, just taking sensible precautions and trusting in God’s mercy and protection! I was traveling a lot recently and seeing hundreds of people panicking, wearing masks, etc, while in the meantime thousands more are dying of cancer and we accept that, it makes us think about “sheep without a shepherd”. From God’s perspective, many of our dreams and plans are “from straw” and cannot withstand even a small fire. But we have an alternative – to stay rooted in Christ and get His Word’s perspective on what matters, then focus on that. It is eternity in the presence of God, in heaven! But now, as long as we are here we invite more people to walk the narrow way.

Grow and change…

A number of our projects are developing well, the staff are really busy. We are translating books, like Bobb Biehl’s “Decade By Decade”, also Greg Ogden, “Discipleship Essentials”. We’ve just launched a new on-line course “How to read the Bible”, and are finishing two on-line courses with Joni Eareckson-Tada. In preparation are various summaries and reports on 2019. Meanwhile, daily we are being contacted by hundreds of people via our Gele platform.

Last weekend we’ve held a conference for Outback leaders from Poland and other European countries with some great help from the US team.

Yes, a lot of work, but going smoothly and harmoniously. This is due in no small part to the fact that from March 1 my son, Filip, became President of all Studio DR activities. Studio DR is one of the three companies owned by our non-profit Deorecordings Association. As a president of the association this helps me to focus on the vision and the big picture.

Together with our friend and former NEC board member Allen Weed. Allen leads “Interlinc” – an innovative ministry focusing on the young generation and christian music.
Polish Outback leaders started regular meetings in preparation for the 2020’s events.
Together with Boni Sala, a daughter of our long-time friend and former NEC board member Harold Sala and our colleague Robert Cieślar.
Great time of fellowship and inspiration during JH Outback board meeting at the Grands Plantation, AL. Part of the discussion was JH Outback European development which we will be leading in the coming years.
At this year’s NRB convention we’ve sensed a strong conviction that the religious freedom and general acceptance of Christianity may be endangered in the years to come.

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

Henry

March prayer requests:

  • Bogusia and my brother, Adam, have decided to start writing a Polish version of “A Miracle Every Day”, the first to be trained by Eric Celerier. Please, pray for them.
  • Starting some much needed remodeling of our “old” office: we would like to do it fast and in the least disruptive manner!
  • Still open and urgent: a contract to distribute the next parts of Superbook children Bible stories DVDs. We still do not have distribution rights for this excellent product translated to Polish by our team.
  • Money for extension of Radio CCM license (last year, we were able to extend for 10 years Radio Fest license, this year it is our second network). Substantial monies are needed – 95.000 EUR. / £83,300 / $107,700.
  • Finishing writing and finding a good publisher for our family book “Sure Foundation”. Right now, in March I plan to take two weeks off and work on it.
  • Development of Outback in Europe. Huge plans are considered! Good Board meeting at the end of February.
  • Continuing asking the Lord’s help and mercy for a dear, close friend and mentor of mine, a man God used many times in my life, Phill Butler, who is suffering with cancer. His situation is all the time very serious.
  • Building project of Malinka church. For wisdom and unity.

Poland, February 2020 in numbers:

  • 13 168 people visited our evangelistic pages
  • 1058 people requested follow-up
  • 338 evangelistic courses finished

Some questions from our courses:
  • How can I know what plan God has for me? How to hear him?
    Gabriel
  • Is the Koran as authentic as the Old Testament or the New Covenant? Where can I find convincing evidence that the Bible is true and deeper? (many books may be true, many were also false prophets) If someone does not read God’s word and does not believe it, then how to know the TRUTH?
    Oliwia
  • Hello, I have a question, I know that Heavenly Father has an amazing love for me, but I keep falling all the time, my life is a sultry “roller Coster”, I often fall and I don’t know how to come back. Do I confess my sins every day so that my life is grounded and rooted in Christ?
    Norbert
  • I do not doubt that God exists as a creative force, but I cannot understand why he “let go” of this world to Satan. Why is history made up of bad people by 99%, more or less suffering is written into almost every human life?
    Piotr
  • How to believe in God?
