Over the past four years in Poland, we have mentored and walked alongside disciples from many nations, and worked diligently to see the people God placed in our path come to faith in Christ and mature in their walk with Jesus, first in Wroclaw, Poland, and then in Opole, Poland.

We have witnessed people forsaking the empty rituals of religion and embracing the true Gospel through a new relationship with Jesus Christ. Through our evangelical community on the field, we have watched God bring Polish people through their own journey of faith, from unbelievers trapped in a religious system into new life as sons and daughters of God through their newfound faith in Jesus. Praise God that our collective prayers are being answered as over 80 people were baptized into believer’s baptism at churches where we had personal connections during our first four years in Poland.

The Opole Baptist church was and is the community that God provided for us in our time in Opole, and we were able to connect with this small, 24-member church and watch God work in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ, many of whom are the first Christians in their families.

We have been invited back by the church to continue the work there, and we feel that God still has more work for us to do on the field, so our calling to Poland is perhaps even stronger now that it was seven years ago when we began our journey in missions. Now we are praying that God, through His people—and this may very well mean you—will raise up the prayer partners and provide the necessary funds that we need to return. Our goal is to be back on the field by August 2019.

But we cannot do this alone. We need you to invest in God’s kingdom and become a part of our ministry in Poland as we return to the field and continue the work to which God has called us. Your prayers and generosity will ensure that our Polish brothers and sisters will not have to walk this journey alone and that we will, together, be able to disciple and walk alongside them as they themselves mature into disciple makers, through the inevitable low points and the high points, so that God will be glorified and His kingdom will continue to grow.

Sign up as a prayer and/or financial partner today and help us make real, lasting change in the lives of countless Poles and in the city of Opole, Poland.
