MISSIONPOLAND MAY 2023
"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." Romans 8:37
Thanks, and Praise belong to our God alone who gave and keeps on giving as we come to HIM in complete trusting obedience to His Word and leading in our lives. We are rejoicing for all of us who have His Holy Spirit indwelling us and sealing us with His great promises toward all of us.
It was a great joy for Anna to be invited to a Friday night Women’s Bible study in Cary, IL, to share about spiritual warfare. This dynamic group of women is part of a new Polish Church in Hanover Park under their pastor Slawomir Niewrzoł. Anna also attended a Women’s leadership conference at the Moody Bible Institute with two Polish friends.
On Wednesday night April 12, we attended the Polish Baptist church in Norridge to share a message on the three aspects of Salvation with those who came to the mid-week Bible study. We met with their elders again on Sunday afternoon. Later Joe participated in a Bible study on the Gospel of John with believers at the Polish Christian Center. We were encouraged that most of them ministered with us in Chicago over the past thirty-three years and saw how they have grown. He gave the message at the Polish Christian Center Church in Chicago from Revelation chapters 1 to 3 and had great fellowship around tables and refreshments with many after the morning service.
We met at Moody Church with Missions Pastor Bill Van Tuinen for the upcoming Polish gathering on May 27 which will be open to the Polish community. We had another blessed dinner with board members Greg and Carol Lynn Krumes, planning this Polish meeting at The Moody Church. Joe met with Mission Poland board treasurer MBI grad Gilbert Dekelaita to thank him for his faithfulness over the years.

We did learn and work with many others over the years and could have listed more names, but these were the main teachers, pastors, mentors, missions, schools, and churches that stand out in my mind. Our Polish evangelism and discipleship handbooks written by us for the Polish mindset, have been consolidated for reprinting and distribution in November of 2022.
