May Update 2017

 


Dear Friends,

I am in Warsaw with our team at a mission conference called Zoom. The speaker is Jeff Fountain who, for many years has been co-leader of Youth With A Mission (YWAM). He reminded us that Jesus promised that the Gospel will reach “the utmost parts of the earth”. Suddenly, it became clear to me that our ministry is a part of God’s mega-plan for our times.

Technology developed in our Studio is now being used by a number of international ministries and under active consideration by some others.

Our focus is on “the next step”, helping people who have committed their lives to Christ to grow and progress in their new found faith.

Superbook in polish state TV

In last month’s “Update” I wrote about the placement of the CBN cartoon, Superbook on Polish State TV. Three series, each of 13 episodes, two series already translated into Polish.We have heard that over 3.6 million Poles have already viewed it and now it is being repeated on a children’s channel. Hallelujah! It is hard to determine the impact it has on people, but it definitely adds to God’s mosaic of making people aware of the stories in the Bible



Polish and American Board meetings

We had also our two Board meetings (Polish and American). Always a wonderful opportunity to thank the Lord for His guidance and all the results, but also praying for more! We also had a dinner with members of both Boards with all the staff and their spouses, a foretaste of heaven!

Trip to Romania

Right after that, our small team, (this time with Hank Paulson, our NEC Board member) went to Romania to help establish/strengthen the Jesus.net Internet ministry there. We’ve prayed for that for quite some time as at the core of Jesus.net is the cooperation of various churches/groups and sometimes an International initiative can trigger things much faster. And it was so! 14 leaders decided to work together and move forward towards reaching Romanians and leading towards discipleship, starting now !An extra joy was to meet the Romanian Outback family, people who are already committed to helping families to grow in a Godly manner. Fantastic fellowship! Thank you, Jesus!

New songs!

Our musicians went for the long May weekend (3 national holidays close together) to the Czech Republic to write new songs. Their recent compositions have been well received and contribute something special to our conferences.

London

Also this past Monday, our youngest son, Szczepan, (who is currently living in Salzburg, Austria,) went to London for a day to represent us at a meeting with a Christian TV channel specializing in outreach to Muslims. Our software is to be used by them to turn seekers into followers of Jesus. What a joy it is!



Building site

Our building project in Wisla has started, too. Now, it is a big hole instead of our beautiful terrazzo, but we live by faith! A new pavilion is to be added, some 138 square meters (1380 sq, feet) We desperately need that extra space for offices, as now our 16 Wisla staff work is placed in every available space in our house, including two bedrooms!


Big hole, where new office spaces will be added.

Thank You

Thank you, Friend, for being with us all the time, watching God using our small efforts to influence others. And thank you, too, for all your prayers and involvement. You are a significant part of all we do. Keep on, dear friend!

Yours very thankfully,
Henio.


Thank You Lord

I’m afraid… I try not to sin, I go to communion and confession but I return back to my sins… I don’t feel any grace, any support from Him… Do I need to hit rock bottom so he can help me? (…)
