Last month I wrote that Spring had been extremely busy for us, somehow this has continued through to July.
We are not complaining, quite the opposite! We are thrilled to see that many projects, plans and outreach we prepared in the past are now maturing into natural growth!
We must stay focused, our priorities are:
The only way to manage such growth is to delegate responsibilities and get more people involved. We must also stay prudent in our finances – we want to market our professional services at a realistic price wherever possible in order to achieve self-financing. At present we are still very happy to receive some financial aid that enables us to continue our work uninterrupted.
Thank you for your involvement and prayers, Friends!
Our technology team has finished moving all the languages into the latest version of Gele (CODEX) 3.0. It works very well now! Many new ideas are now implemented but the development never ends. More and more international ministries are interested in using this platform!
The music group Cześć, (led by Filip with many of our staff members) have finally released their third CD, I think it is very good. In the first few days some 500 copies were sold. They have written all the songs. Listen to the short compilation.
In early July we assisted by hosting a ZeWatchers conference in Wisla, a European professional media/art initiative that is to reach non-believers for Christ. Chantal Barry, a widow after departure of Jean Pierre, ZeWatchers founder and Eric Celerier, founder of Jesus.net were explaining how to increase media impact with content targeted at non-believers. We look forward to the next steps!
At this same time there was a “Women’s Breakfast”, led this time by my wife, Bogusia, as the two other ladies usually involved could not attend (one was in plane, stacked, waiting to land!). Some 800 ladies attended, they departed happy and encouraged after 6 hours.
Also Dziegielow Gospel Week, an annual evangelistic event, gathering hundreds (thousands in the afternoon sessions) of people. We had a stand there.
Right now I’m writing this at Frankfurt airport, returning from a short US trip to Atlanta, Charlotte and Asheville. I was meeting our partners at the Billy Graham Center and also prospective partners in the Atlanta area willing to utilize our software platform for their Christian materials. A real answer to prayer was a connection with Bobby Downes, leader of Christian Cinema, a film streaming company, who is willing to share their platform with us to stream films (with Polish translation) into Polish territory. This is crucial for us as DVDs are becoming obsolete.
Bogusia and I are leaving soon for a two week vacation! I can’t remember the last time we had such a luxury! I pray the Lord will use this time to quieten us down so we can hear His “still small voice” unfolding His future plans.
Friends, we deeply appreciate your friendship! Thank you for all your prayers and standing with us, sharing common vision and the work! Yours in Him Henryk
