Hello Dear Partners & Friends!!
We greet you on this first day of November with much joy in our hearts. It has been a very busy month with Language School, teaching Pastors in Warsaw, Poland and having some of our Rhema Europe team here this week to work, strategize & prepare for 2020.
We thank you, our dear Partners for your faithful financial & prayer support that allows us to be diligently focusing on God's assignment for us here in Poland! We are so honored to be your hands & feet in this part of the world!!
We are making progress in Language School & are beginning to have more ability to communicate in Polish. We learned how to conjugate verbs in the present tense, so next we will be learning how to do this in past & future tense. Doesn't sound very spiritual, I know, but if we can't communicate in their language then the impact will not be as great. It's kind of exciting actually being able to speak sentences with correct endings on the words!
Our meetings in Warsaw were wonderful!! We had a great group of Pastors and leaders from several nations and in different phases of ministry. Many were challenged and inspired with fresh vision to reach new communities by planting new life-giving churches, which is so needed in this part of the world. New relationships were formed and we had opportunities to share about the Bible School that will begin here in Gdynia next fall. These leaders were excited and said, "This training is what our people need!".
This week the Director over Rhema Europe, John Grunewald and his wife, Michelle and another couple from the Rhema Europe team came to Poland. We worked together for many hours creating a timeline for the school year and planned numerous 'Get to Know RBTC' days in various cities for the new year. The last few details have been completed for RBTC Trójmiasto Polska's legal foundation and now we wait for government approval. We have curriculum being translated into Polish and we have already ordered some books for the future students. It takes many hands to open a Bible School!
We are also busy with looking for more permanent housing. We have been staying in Airbnb's, but need to find a more permanent home. We appreciate your prayers for God's favor and are believing that we can secure a place soon as we must be out of our current apartment at the end of the month.
We are so blessed to be a part of what God is doing all over the world in this hour! It is an exciting time to be alive!! Psalm 2:8 says, 'Ask of Me and I will give you the nations'. John 14:13-14, Jesus said, 'If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.' We encourage you today to ask God for people to reach with His love & light. They aren't hard to find, they are all around you! Ask Him for your neighbors, your community, your state, and your nation!! The Lord Jesus desires to make Himself known to every soul on this planet! Ask God and believe Him to use you to make a difference in people's lives and He will!!
We love you, dear friends and precious Partners!!! We are praying for you and we thank God for people with a heart to reach the world for Jesus!!!!
Together Building His Kingdom,
Steve & Pam
