I hope you are doing well in this strange time! Even when life’s difficulties and the challenge of the looming economic slowdown gives cause for concern, we have the comfort of knowing that we are, ultimately, on His winning side! We live on God’s promises and He lives in us! Do you remember the sinking boat and Jesus quieting the storm? Just relax and do what the Lord is planning for you every day!
For the first time in my long life I experienced a physical problem; an uncontrollable nose bleed caused by high blood pressure. It has stabilized now, it was a salutary reminder that life is passing and we should pray more earnestly to release His power more mightily into our ministry!
For us, now, it seems a time of harvest! We have been involved in digital outreach since July 2008 and now, with people spending so much more time in front of their screens, (many worrying,) we have five times more people signing-up to our evangelistic and discipleship courses! April was record month for our Polish online ministry with 1755 new people signing to discipleship courses.
We have so many online meetings now, partners, unpaid team members and volunteers in different areas of our ministry. Just yesterday we had a prayer meeting with our e-coaches; I was incredibly encouraged to see the depth of conviction and commitment by quite a number of people! We strive to help so many people, many of them struggling with chaotic lives! There are also some new initiatives. As we cannot hold our three Outback family weekends planned for June, we intend to start a weekly, online Outback TV . I just counted recently, we have seven online prayer groups I am involved in. And, as we know the Lord answers prayers, we look into even better future!
Yes, there are some big question marks. Should we hold our annual live gathering E-coach Conference at the end of August, or move it to on-line? Our ladies have already decided to move their Women’s Breakfast (with usual attendance of 800 ladies in a great Wisla hotel) to the on-line version. As I hear some snippets of their planning I can tell it’s going to be very creative! (And tasty!)
And, yes, we are praying for the Lord’s mercy as far as funding. Most of our expenses (68%) we have covered in 2019 with our invoiced revenue, from sales of our advertisements on radio or Studio services. That’s now down 50%. So we pray we shall be able to fill it up with donations. The paradox is – we have now the best time ever as far as spiritual outcome, and at the same time – serious problems with cash. It keeps us on our knees.
Friends, Thank you for your continuous friendship and involvement. We deeply appreciate it! Together, we may change the World, in the power of Holy Spirit!
