Here is an EXCITING, quick update!!!


Hello Dear Partners & Friends!  Happy Saturday to you!! We trust you are having a blessed weekend. 

We wanted to give you a quick update since it has now been 3 weeks since we began Polish Language School. Wow, it truly is intense, but we are learning. Many nights are spent up late at our little table in the apartment studying for hours learning new words, phrases, proper grammatical form & phrasing and numbers. Of course, we keep before us WHY we are doing this; it is HIS assignment for us so we can be the most effective to impact this nation and the region! 

You may wonder how we are doing with the lessons. It definitely is a challenge, but we are making great progress!! We keep speaking that we have the mind of Christ and we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us! The Europeans here have told us that for English speakers Polish is extremely difficult because it requires learning so many new language concepts that we don't even have in English, unlike German, Spanish, French, Italian etc.. that already have most of these concepts. Now that we are getting a broader base of vocabulary, we have to try to speak what we know as much as we can, and practice listening & understanding & communicating in Polish. We choose to laugh a lot and keep our joy level way high!!!

Our schedule is up by 5:30am, leave the apartment by 8:00, and get to school by 8:50. We're in class till 1:30, sometimes a little later. What has been amazing is how God is allowing us to share with and minister to many of the students that come to this small language school. 

Some students are here that have moved to Poland and are learning the language since they will be here long term. Xiaopeng & Xutan recently moved here from China, and Julian did also. He is a young guy from Belgium searching for purpose. Others are here for short term language learning get-aways. We have met numerous Germans who are learning Polish, some because they have a Polish boyfriend or girlfriend, and some are interested because of their work and they live so close to Poland. They may be here for 1 to 3 weeks and in class 6 hours a day. Herbie is a 79 year old retired Irishman, who now lives in the U.K. He got connected with someone who had a Polish Chess club and was inspired to learn Polish. He is something else!  Konstantyn is from Ukraine. So we are meeting people from many places and many walks of life and God is allowing us to speak into their lives. They all have been so eager to know why we would move from America to Poland and we are busy planting many seeds!

Our teacher's name is Artemeda. Though she cannot speak any English we have made quite a connection. We know the Lord picked her to be our teacher because she is so hungry for more of God, and she has said that she sees God in us. This week we were able to bless her in a couple of very practical ways and it ministered to her greatly. She was overwhelmed and we know this is the beginning of the Lord doing something mighty in her life! 

We thank you, our dear precious Partners who funded this first semester of school and have faithfully supported us on a monthly basis. We are so blessed by your supply that you bring! You have seed in the ground here in Poland and that means harvest is coming!!! Thank you for keeping us in your prayers! It is such a blessing to know that we are not alone, but we have many behind us giving such love, strength and support. We appreciate you so very much!  THANK YOU for loving people and having God purpose in your life so you could be used for His glory!!! 

Next Sunday we leave for Warsaw  and will be teaching Church Planting to Pastors & leaders from all across Poland. We will miss a week of school, but will make it up when we get back. Thank you for covering us in prayer that week as we expect it will be a great week with great God deposits into people's lives!

We will have more to share with you in a couple of weeks, but just wanted to give you a good report of God's workings in Language school. God will use you if you just allow Him to! Be BOLD!!! As a child of the King of Kings, you have the greatest gift anyone could ever receive and people are desperate for Him, even when they don't know it. 

We are praying for you, our dear Partners. We pray many scriptures over you, but Paul's prayers in chapters 1 & 3 in the book of Ephesians are very powerful. Pray these prayers over your family members and yourself and know that we are praying for you. We have expectancy of God moving in great ways in your life as you seek Him first!!!

We love you dearly and we thank God for you!!!! Be strengthened, encouraged & blessed today! 


With much joy & thankfulness & love,

Steve & Pam
