 Welcome to MissionPoland



Welcome to MissionPoland 2021

Dear Friends and Partners in reaching the Polish Nation,          June 10, 2021

God is faithful and compassionate toward us beyond our understanding.

Without your prayers, co-labor, loving fellowship, and generous financial

support, we would have given up before the first year was over. We always

thank the Lord for each of you individually and praise God for your

strength in the Lord, and that you remain in good health as He provides for

all of us..


“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting

nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season

we shall reap if we do not loosen and relax our

courage and faint Galatians 6:9 (AB).

Over the years we have faced many obstacles that the Lord always used to

redirect us and to prepare us as we had to depend on Him. God Himself

opens doors that we can’t even see and our greatest challenge every day is

to have our imperfect hearts be like David’s in 1 Samuel 13:14 and Acts

13:22  “The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart.”

In the middle of great military danger and King Saul jeopardizing the

whole nation of Israel by ignoring God’s commands, we see that victories

and successes come when God is the architect of our plans, even in this

two month trip to Poland. Every meeting and every person must be

affected by God’s Spirit leading us.

These past fourteen months of pandemic restrictions have caused us to

rearrange our ministry strategy for now and to produce many freshly

prepared Bible teaching videos with notes for Polish communities in

Poland and abroad. One of our faithful viewers/listeners has recently

become a dynamic on fire, born-again Christian Rafał Kowalski who

started one of the many private FB groups that approve our teaching

videos. He is a hospital medical technician and already leads many to

salvation. He will be at one of our church meetings in northern Poland.

Fourteen churches have already scheduled us for these eight weeks in

Poland, from different denominations. By the time we leave there will

probably be twenty churches all across Poland and small group meetings;

including four different ones with evangelical reformers and their close

friends in the Roman Catholic Church.

Praises & Prayer Requests

1. We are thankful that the Lord has restored our health over the years,

always provided for our family with each of you. We will need your

prayers more than ever this time as we are asking the Lord to lead us to

one or more people who will be like David in God’s hands completely.

2.  We are thankful for your prayers and giving which have always kept us

in the black. 2021 is our seventeenth full year with MissionPoland. The

Lord has kept us going, given us your support and the fellowship,

guidance, and example of our Board.

3. We need your prayers for us to belong fully to the Lord in every

encounter, even those encounters that are unplanned. Forty seven years

ago Joe came to Poland to preach the Gospel to the whole nation had no

idea how that could even happen, especially in a controlled communist


There was no plan or strategy and no one in the world was expecting much

to happen, including Joe. Yet somehow the Lord brought him in close

contact with those in Poland whom everyone knew and the Lord opened

doors that began to bring the Gospel with the full force of God’s Word to

many in Poland. There are new generations to reach in Poland. Please pray

that God will be able to use us.

 In February and March of 2020 just before the Covid Lockdown, Anna and I
spent five weeks in Poland with our schedule here below these first pictures of
Mary's Marriage ceremony which had to be a closed family affair on the shores
of the Gulf Coast in April of 2020. We have waited for the restrictions to end in
Poland before our return which we hope will be in late June until August 18,


In April, in the year of our Lord 2020, our daughter Mary and the son of 

Jeffrey and Christine  Havlock,
"tied the knot" and became one in a God honoring Christian ceremony in Gulf
Shores Alabama which is between Mary's home in Florida and
Daniel's home in Texas.

(What is the Local Church to be like)






The Lord has prepared us for over 59 years for Joe and 39 years for Anna.




Our main messages to believers center on the three aspects of salvation (justification, sanctification & glorification) .


"...For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ... "2 Corinthians 5: 9-11


At the end of April 2018 Anna was serving at the fifth Polish Christian

Women' s conference in Chicago.




 It’s not better methods or gifted teachers;  It is the preaching and

living out of the Gospel that was “once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3)





 In the early 1970’s, Joe left for Poland and helped begin Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) in Poland.

The entire Catholic youth movement in Poland “Oaza” was affected by the Gospel

One of those Oaza leaders affected was Anna.

In 1990, Joe and Anna met in Chicago and soon they became inseparable.


A ministry of Christian radio, camps, concerts, festivals and training conferences were held throughout the city of Chicago

They now have three grown children (Mary - 27, Lukas - 25 and Konrad - 23)

In late 2004, Joe and Anna started MissionPoland.

God has protected and provided for us all these years and we trust

Him to continue, as we keep His word, love the Lord, honor His name

and have His purpose.



 The vision for creating a new Polish ministry began while we were members at Moody Church in Chicago in the 1990's.

We had a Polish Christian Bookstore and with that opened up a radio program, many children's camps.

Joe was the Sunday School Director at the time in the 1990's.

Several Elders of the church encouraged us to form an official 501 c 3 corporation.

Several years later MissionPoland started procedures in 2006 to become a 501 c 3 non profit ministry. Ten of our original board members listed under WELCOME on the side bar are still with MissionPoland and two have gone ahead of us to Glory in Heaven. 

By January of 2007 we were a 501 (c) 3 corporation.


Anna was led to organize ministry events for Polish

women in Chicago as well. 


Pictured here are some of the great accomplished

pastors and teachers who were placed in my life

over the course of fifty five years. There are dozens

of others, but these men certainly changed the world.

In 2020 we will add pictures of



Bill Vesely and John Kopecky of the Lawndale Emmanuel

Baptist Church, Randall James of the First Baptist

Church of Orlando,  Marty DeBoer, Steve Kovic,

Howard Ball,  Dick Sanner

Conrad Koch of Campus Crusade for Christ and

Krzysztof Bednarzyk of the Krakow Baptist Church. 




Our ministry in Poland is built on almost thirty years of Anna and me

building trust relationships with believers in Poland. It was also built

on earlier ministry that is still bearing fruit from the 1970’s with

Campus Crusade for Christ, when I was living in Poland.

The Lord has prepared us over many years. For me, even before I

entered Poland for the first time in 1974, the eleven years of intensive

Bible and ministry training came from many great teachers between

October 31, 1962 and September of 1974, which continued into the

1990’s at the Moody Church in Chicago and ministry to Poles that

included even more preparation with associations like Harold O.J.

Brown who attached himself to our early Polish ministry and traveled

with Joe in Poland before he was called home. Dr. Brown was our first

MissionPoland boardmember. Pastor Jim Henry also joined our board

in the beginning and is still with us. I can list fifty more teachers and

mentors as we were given the best for the work we are called to do.

The Lord has blessed us with great board members since 2006 when

we started to form the MissionPoland board. 



 Ministry in Poland over the past 28 years has been mainly to

about 100 local churches in Poland and continues in 2021.
