Warm greetings from Wisla, Poland! Life is good (and busy!) We are overwhelmed by God’s work during two Polish Outbacks, many transformed lives (see notes of participants at the end of this newsletter).
Continually, our regular Internet outreach is being fine-tuned as hundreds of messages are exchanged with seekers every day by our e-coaches. It is so easy to get used to it, but we must always remember we are talking about individuals who are often deeply wounded, suffering and desperate as they are being led to Christ. But it is vital to stay in touch with them and point them towards discovering God’s plan for their life and becoming real disciples of Christ. And yes, we see it happen, by God’s grace!
I attended a very interesting conference in Pittsburg, PA, “#TechForum 2019, Self-Disrupt, Together”. The whole idea is to stop doing things via any form of ministry that is no longer effective in our fast-changing world. Instead, we must seek out ways that are more relevant to contemporary society, tailor our approach, tools, etc. to have greater appeal to current generations. The speakers were absolute industry leaders, incl. creators of iPad, CAPTCHA, Duallingo, etc. A very stimulating time for me, indeed! Getting some ideas on how to improve what we are doing in our ministry? What to stop doing, which direction to go be become, hopefully – viral?
There is also a new opening for expanding our family programs, originated in the US – JH Outback in Europe, a process that is already happening, organically, but now we pray to make it intentional, sharing with the world what really works!
How to innovate in our Radio? The Lord has entrusted us such an amazing tool with access to 600.000 people – how to make it more effective for the Kingdom in a world, where media are getting so liberal? How to take a stand wisely? Please, pray with us for an effective solution.
Our software team is working hard on improving our systems. A new, multilingual version of Connected Giving software for donor communication was launched in September and is already implemented. Two new languages were also added to our discipleship system, GELE (Codex). They are operated by local enthusiasts. Praise the Lord!
There is no way I could describe in this short newsletter all our staff activities, but there is a good sense of momentum, new ideas spontaneously popping out and then tested.
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!
