Welcome to MissionPoland 2022

 

 

 

JANUARY 2022 

Thank you for all your prayers and giving in 2021. The Lord opened new doors for

us in Poland and provided all that we needed. Thank you for sharing your prayer

requests and praises with us and for being close to us spiritually as we serve

through your support and love in Christ.   MissionPoland  Contribution:  paypal.me/missionpoland 

 

 On December 21, 2021, founding board member Marty DeBoer was taken home

to his heavenly reward after a long illness. Marty gave us our legal nonprofit

status designation, which was very costly and complicated. We first met in 1969

and worked closely for several years until 1972 in our Campus Crusade for Christ

ministry centered on Chicago campuses. Marty asked me to organize all Chicago

schools and churches for Explo ’72 and was our treasurer for the first years of

MissionPoland. We spent many blessed days together in ministry & training during

those years.

We are all thankful that our entire family of six were together for four days at

Christmas and we were able to go to church together to celebrate our faith in

Christ. Konrad who works in Milwaukee, stayed with us for four weeks during the

holidays working from home. Lukas is still living with us and working full time.

Mary and Daniel are happily making their home in St. Petersburg, FL. and

planning a trip to Poland this year. More than ever, Anna and I want to be a

testimony to them of God's power and care for our daily lives. We all want our

lives to always shine for Christ, but especially at home.   

 

Looking back at 2021, we are amazed that we served in many churches and

 

towns without any medical or political hindrances during two long trips to Poland.

We are so encouraged by the past year of our ministry, that we are looking

forward to another good year. We are planning two trips to Poland in 2022 with

expectant faith that even more people will be reached with the Gospel in Poland

through those we encourage in our meetings. 

 

This Spring, we are also planning ministry in Chicago. There is a possibility that

 

Joe can have an evangelistic music outreach at the Polish Art Gallery Café in

Wooddale, Illinois and at Orchard Evangelical Free Church Café in Barrington, IL.  

“But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the

word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a

hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Matt. 13:23 

This verse summarizes our mission to make the Biblical Gospel clear to those who will listen.

PRAYER REQUESTS and PRAISE FOR 2022

1.      The Lord has provided all these seventeen years of MissionPoland ministry,

and we see His hand calling many to Himself who will listen, understand, and

believe in the Gospel.                                                  

2.       Our mission and prayer is to gather all born again believers together

around the Gospel of grace in its fulness to reach all of Poland.                                                                                                                                3.        3. We are always praying and seeking to spend time encouraging our adult children

anyway we can, as they begin to establish their lives on their own.  

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

Mary and Daniel Celebrate their 2020 wedding in 2021 and will be married two years this April. 

                         

 

 

Daniel and Mary were surrounded by their Christian friends and close

family. We left with prayers that they will continue to be a beacon of

light and used greatly by God.                          

 

We are now preparing for our Autumn trip to Poland with ministry in

around fifteen churches and various individuals as our schedule

continues to develop in October. Though we are now concentrating

on this important ministry trip, we are also praying for our continued

ministry in Florida and Chicago for five months when we come back

in December. While we are home, we will also continue to send video

and written Bible teaching from God’s word for those in and from

Poland and plan a Spring – Summer ministry trip to many churches

and events in Poland.

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about

our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing

that you contend earnestly for the faith that was once for

all time handed down to the saints.” Jude 3

 

In September we also had a mid-year board meeting which always

encourages us to be accountable and to hold firm to “the faith that

was once for all time given to the saints.”  Our board is listed on our web-site

www.missionpoland.pl  under Welcome on the side bar. Our message and faithfulness to the Gospel of

Christ is overseen by our mission’s board of great pastors and former

missionaries listed on our website.  “Having been built on the foundation

of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone.”  Ephesians 2: 20

Prayers and Praises!

 

A.      We have a few days left  to prepare for Poland. Thankfully we are in

good health, but always need to tune our heart to the Lord’s Word

and the leading of His Holy Spirit.

B.      We are praying for our funding in these last three months of

2021, to be in keeping with our monthly budget, in order to fully

cover all our ministry and family living expenses. Every gift will

greatly help. The Lord has provided for MissionPoland for seventeen

years through your prayers and giving. 

C.      God is opening new doors for us even as we write this letter with

many in Poland on this trip; and we are asking Him to guide our

every step for His honor and glory.

 

We thank the Lord for you often and always remember that we

could not go on without your prayers for us to be faithful and for

your sacrificial support.  Anna and Joe Łosiak

 
 
MissionPoland SEPTEMBER 2021 News from Poland
 

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your love, prayers and financial support. All the blessed & fruitful meetings we had in Poland were made possible by the Author & Finisher  of our faith - Praise God Alleluja.
A few days ago our friend Leonard Jankowski (85) and  also one of our original board members went to be with the Lord.  Leonard was personally with us in ministry in Poland,  Florida and several times in his home state Minnesota. He was a part of producing the Jesus Film for Poland which was seen in theatres all over Poland in 1979. His heart for the Lord's work was always at the forefront of his life. His enthusiasm encouraged us to contuinue our ministry. He gave his all for his Lord & his family. He will be greatly missed. 
In Poland this past summer, we were invited to teach all over the country with great meetings in Baptist, Brethren, Pentecostal and Evangelical churches, where we rejoiced together over God's Word.  Anna had two very good women's meetings in Szczecin and Olsztyn.  Almost in everyplace we would meet new people, seekers ; being helpful and encouraging  them in their journey and mission was like hearing a  symphony of God's Grace.
We also had eight meetings with  Roman Catholics and former Catholics who invited us to share with them and to answer their many questions. Our main message on this trip to them is found in the letter to the first church in Rome, verses 1:5 and 16:26,27 which begin and end this great letter to practice "the obedience that come from faith". We also emphasized the truths of the Revelation of Jesus Christ to the disobedient churches
One of our long meetings was  with former Catholic Rafał Kowalski and Karol Sobczyk who are pictured here below . Karol  in the middle is the head of a large Catholic nationwide fellowship that has been deeply influenced by evangelical teachings from the Bible. We were in amazement that we all had the same beliefs and mission to bring the Biblical message of salvation to the next generation  in Poland. I gave both men our workbooks for a Biblical understanding of salvation, victorious living and Church life.  

When He got back home both men immediately released a supportive public statement for our mission that was read  across Poland. After that Joe was contacted by new people for meetings and interviews.  Karol Sobczyk  also  gave the official link to the 16 paged Four Spiritual Laws which contain many Bible  passages which teach salvation by grace through faith and to encourage growth. 
We also met a few times with our Catholic priest friend Andrzej Bafeltowski and had Bible study together. He invited us to his Neochatehumenal  group of Catholics  and asked me to speak to the twenty five people present. Later we were recorded by him as we presented teaching from God's Word by this same  Catholic priest who has been in contact with us for the past three years. Andrzej represents this movement  which teaches salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone and is known as a "protestant movement" within the Catholic church.
Joe was also interviewed on Zoom by a leader in the Catholic Charismatic movement and we both spent a day with the leading Catholic historian Marek Nowicki pictured in the middle discussing  evangelism and renewal while in his home. 
Joe met again with the last two living moderators (movement leaders) living at the headquarters of the Oasis movement. Wojtek Zając pictured  on his bike did the original translation of the Four Spiritual Laws . We also met with  Jurek Główka in his home after the passing of his wife. He is now attending the Baptist church in Tarnów and in retirement is translating the "Life Application Bible Notes" to be published in Poland.  
There is an eagerness for a new Biblical evangelization in Poland. We are so thankful that we had many unexpected meetings with Catholics who remember what began among them in the 1970's. We will now seek God's hand in openning doors for us again and to unite all truly born again believers in reaching today's Poland.
PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISES:
1. Our daughter Mary was married in a small two family ceremony last year. This month on the 18th Mary and Daniel Havlock will have their wedding reception here in Orlando. We praise God that they and both parents want to follow the Lord. Our sons, Konrad and Lukas are both College graduates. Konrad will head to Milwaukee to take a position at a Designing  Art Company and Lukas will be heading for graduate studies in his field of Psychology. We are praying that all of them will continue in their walk with Christ.
2. humbly looking forward to whatever God has planned in the future.                                
3. We need to replace our old car and we are praying for the best way for us to do this. 
Thank you for your support which makes it possible for us to continue. After every trip to we seek God's will for further ministry in Poland, America and England.                                                                                                                                                                   
"But when he (Peter) saw the wind was fierce, he was afraid and beginning to drown he cried out, saying, 'Lord save me'! And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" Matthew 14: 30,31

 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,
 
2021. 
 
 

 

 
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.

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 - 28, Lukas - 26 and Konrad - 24)

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.

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.
