Hello Dearest Partners & Friends!
We are writing to you from Katowice, Poland. This is a very industrial city and there are many coal fields in this region. We will be ministering here this weekend in a young church with young pastors. We met them last weekend while we were ministering in Częstochowa for the 18th anniversary celebration of Słowo Wiary Kościoła (Word of Faith Church).
I can't tell you how blessed we are to see the passion and sacrifice of these men & women of God to reach their communities and beyond. They do not live like we live in America or the western world.. They have very simple, small, modest apartments and live on very little. Their church facilities are not ideal, but they are reaching people. Missions is a big part of their heart, and these pastors are even going to Ukraine to help struggling pastors there. It's a joy & blessing to come along side these ministers and congregations to encourage, strengthen them, and sow into what they are doing. Partners, your seed is going all over Poland, and beyond!
What we are seeing is that the Polish pastors are not looking for a handout, but they very much desire relationship. Being able to meet these Pastors face to face and spend quality time with them, listening to them share their hearts, vision and struggles is bringing encouragement to them.This is a huge part of relationship building. As trust is being established, these servants of God are seeing how much we and you, our Partners care for the people of Poland.
We wanted to share with you an exciting opportunity that God opened to us a little over a week ago. We were approached by the President of TBN Polska who we have developed a very good relationship with over the last few years, and he asked us to please consider developing a regular 30 minute program that would air twice a week on their network where we would teach God's Word to the Polish audience. These programs would begin airing in January. This truly will open the nation to us and give us opportunity to share God's truths to millions of people across Poland. We will have a specific number to believe God for after getting the full cost for equipment, production and airing. It's a big step for us, but we know that where God guides, He provides! We will keep you posted on this new project.
We still are beleiving God for some things to clear through the Polish court system so that we can get our bank account opened for RHEMA Polska. We have been making so much progress in many other areas preparing for the school, but this legal part needs to get finished up quickly. There are many people interested and eager for RBTC to start in 2022 and soon we will be able to begin registering students.
We are so thankful to you, dearest friends. Thank you for loving Jesus and for making a difference!
1 Peter chapter 4 beginning with vs.7 says," Since we are approaching the end of all things, be intentional, purposeful and self-controlled so that you can be given to prayer. Above all, have fervent and unfailing love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaint." We are reminded how our lives here are but a vapor, so it's so crucial for we, the body of Christ to be walking with clear purpose & following our God-given instructions in every area, and giving ourselves to prayer. Pray for the persecuted church. Pray for those that have freedoms being stripped away. Pray that His light penetrates into the greatest darkness & the hardest of hearts. And let's walk in love so the whole world can see what His love looks like & how it operates. His love is bringing hope, freedom & healing to wounded, hurting people!!
We are praying for you and your family that His great peace & grace would abound in your hearts! Thank you for covering us in prayer as we minister and as we are meeting Pastors to build God relationships that will last.
Blessings to you!!!! We love and appreciate you!!!
Rejoicing in the goodness of His love,
Steve & Pam
