****************************************************************************

2023 Christmas time and all the way to the 2024 New Year our family had a blessed time together with us. The Lord comes first and under his grace and love we have family, ministry, church, work, Christian family and everyone else we come in contact with to be a witness to by our lives and words. This is our prayer and our constant 'meta-noia' challenge in all we will be and do. Without the Lord we will fall apart completely. Thank you for your prayers as we also pray for you (if we know you). Our monthly newsletter is sent to all who are led to pray for us and our mission, as we will pray especially for our MissionPoland friends which includes our extended family. Drop us a line and let us know how we can pray for you. joelosiak@yahoo.com or losiakanna@gmail.com .  

“… I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me … putting me into the ministry … I obtained mercy … and the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant with faith and love … ”  1 Timothy 1: 12-14

 

 

 

 

We are rejoicing for all our families and  for the Lord giving to all of us the “ministry of reconciliation” because of what Christ has done for us who have believed.  

 

 

Our two-month mission trip to churches in Poland ended with a northwest regional conference, where Anna had the opening and closing session. The conference theme was “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11: 28) Anna has been visiting these women for the past five years with Joe speaking to the whole congregation. This all-day women’s conference was re-started after ten years. It was a blessing to see new younger woman serving with great enthusiasm and being encouraged, as all were uplifted with great joy

 

 

 

 

  Our Fall mission to Poland was  wrapped with Anna's Women's Conference in Szczecin on the Baltic Sea. All before the conference and after she was recovering from a bad cold. She went to Szczecin by train and returned to say good-bye to many friends and family until April 2024 when we are scheduled to return to many churches and schools across Poland. This winter in Florida we will concentrate on reaching out to the 500,000 Americans of Polish background now living in Florida - many of whom still have Polish as their first language. Many Poles living in the northern cities also visit Florida in the winter. There are two Polish Facebook groups in Florida with over 5000 members who have been publishing many of our Video Bible messages with outlines in Polish for the past few years. POLONIJNY INFORMATOR - FLORYDA and POLSKIE SPOTKANIE NA FLORYDZIE. We also send those videos with Bible Study Outlines to Polish groups in England, Scotland, Canada, Australia, Continental Europe and others in the USA. We are praying that we will meet many of them here in Florida over the winter as we are also developing a list of strong evangelical churches, they can take their families to from Tallahassee to Miami.

************************

In July Anna was on a planned trip with our daughter Mary, her husband Daniel Havlock and their two ten month old twins (Spenser and June) who fly to Poland free at their age. Anna here is pictured with her mom Maria on her right and the co-founder and historian of the largest Catholic youth movement who opened the  door to Evangelical Protestants to do all the teaching at their camps for thousands while I was in Poland from 1974 to 1976. It was at that time after singing and sharing at University Student gatherings in Cracow 1974 two very important Catholic leaders asked to meet with me knowing that I was not a Roman Catholic. Both I eventually learned understood that Mary the earthly mother of our Lord's human birth cold not be equated with Jesus Christ, His Father and that there was only a Holy Trinity and not a Holy Quartet. The Lord had me meeting with both men separately as they knew each other very well and they both allowed Biblical evangelism and teaching which had nothing to do with Mary. Unknown to me back then they sent a priest from Poland to live with my mother and father in Chicago as he was visiting Notre Dame which had that arrangement with Poland. There were no phones for us back then and I would communicate once or twice a year with my parents. Here is our family in Poland this month of June 2023 for a family wedding and for four generations to be together The four Havlocks (Daniel, Mary and the two 10 month old twins - Spenser and June, Three for the Wierenko family Monika, Amelka and Mirek as well as Great GrandMother Marysia Ochel seated next to Anna Łosiak and the twins right before them. 
 
 

Anna's Catholic father accepted the Gospel message on his death bed as we both spent his last two days alone with him while he was dying. Anna's mom left us alone as we witnessed all day to her father. Next week Anna will spend her last two weeks in Poland with her mother on her small veggie and fruit farm 25 miles east of Cracow. In mid July, Anna and I will prepare and organized another tour of many churches all across Poland in September and October. We speak at each stop and have our own ministry handbooks written and published several times over the past fifteen years. At the end of this month, I will send our July newsletter out to most of you and in the first week of July, just before Anna returns, I will send all who donated to MissionPoland a full report of all funding and expenditures for these first six months of 2023. Lord willing we will continue together full time as MissionPoland for five more years after this year. Any donations mailed by June 30 will be included an help us reach perhaps close to 70% of our budget for the first six months of 2023. We usually do better in the final six months as tax season gets more difficult for all of us each year. 
  
 
Also in July, Joe flew  to Chicago for  two days and stayed in a hotel near Oakbrook where we had a reunion of our Christian band "Morning Star" which sang and preached in the Northern Illinois and Wisconsin area in places like De Paul University, Trinity College, College retreats (Advances) with Campus Crusade for Christ in Wisconsin, Camp Awana, Timberee, many weekends at Adventure Land in Medinah, Santa's Village and the Wheaton Bandshell. Only four of us were able to get together due to illness . Two of these four pictured here pastored churches and two did mission work in Africa and Poland. 

Again! Thank you for your prayers and helping to make MissionPoland possible as we all prepare for eternity with another ministry trip to many churches in Poland this Fall 2023! We have already set up ten meetings in ten cities and will set up at least ten more befotre we leave on September 12, 2023. That schedule will be posted here in September. 
 
We pray that our mission last Spring with twelve Polish 
Christian workers mainly from Poland and Canada will take all they learned back to their homes and churches in Poland. Seven well known Bible teachers from the USA took part in the 12 days in our home and three days in Chicago where most Polish speakers live. MissionPoland made all the arrangements and key sessions have been broadcast all over Poland. Romans 8: 37

These meetings in Chicago have all been great and completed with God's blessing. The Polish Christian Center meeting on May 28 Sunday, is pictured below. The message and response was amazing !!!

Please pray with us that our LORD will transform this schedule into impactful, significant Holy gatherings that will bring Polish believers together under Him & touch the lives of many still unsaved to bring Great joy” to those cities.

"And there was great Joy in that city"  Acts 8:8
