Dearest Partners & Friends,
We have had you in our prayers continually. We know so many of you have had to deal with difficult circumstances with the extreme weather all across the country. We have been lifting up our dear friends in TX who have been suffering with no electricity, heat and many with no water. God's strength, grace, wisdom, favor and peace to you in abundance. I am so thankful that He truly is our very present help in time of need. We pray for restoration to you all!
We were thrilled to get the good news of our Polish residency approval!
Without this we could not get back into Poland since they are not issuing any Visas at this time. We hope restrictions will lessen soon, but we are making plans to return in the near future. We are making dental and doctor appointments, scheduling some more visits to some of our partnering churches in various parts of the U.S. and planning a trip to see our daughter out west, and some other family before we will head back to Poland. We will keep you updated as plans are firmed up.
We had such a blessed opportunity to go to ND and join in the Northern Plains Believers Rally last month and ministered in several churches and in Break Forth Bible Institute in ND & MT. What a joyous, precious time it was! God truly did exceeding, abundantly over all we dare ask or think. We were blessed with an offering that exceeded the amount we needed for the car we need to purchase when we get back to Poland. It allowed us to sow into a Polish church in Lublin that is doing street ministry, feeding the hungry and giving them God's Word of life. The vehicle they used to bring meals to the homeless & poor had broken down, and we were able to sow a significant seed to help them get another vehicle. What a joy!!! THANK YOU, Partners! You have made this possible.
We continue to meet with our team members as we strategize and prepare for RHEMA Polska to open this Fall. Because of the current Covid restrictions, we are in the midst of developing a doable plan to still hold school that will allow students to learn and to connect with one another. We are already looking for office space to rent in Poland for RHEMA Polska when we return. Thank you for praying for us for God's great wisdom and favor!
Blessings to you, precious Partners & friends. I love Rick Renner's translation of Ephesians 1:6 from the Greek, "Thanking God for you is so easy- It just flows out of our hearts every time we think of you. In fact, we never take a break from letting God know how we feel about you." May your hearts be encouraged today. Keep believing & trusting in your Faithful Father! Keep declaring God's Word out of your mouth and expect to see Restoration in 2021!
With much love & appreciation & great anticipation of good to come,
Steve & Pam
