August is already behind us and we continue to be thrilled to see Lord at work!
Firstly, Filip and I were invited to join 25 other international distributors of The Chosen series and visit Dallas, TX, to see filming stages of the currently produced 3rd season. As, I believe, many of you are aware – it is a series about the life of Jesus and His disciples, but in the format not seen before, providing more context on the possible daily lives of the characters. It is very attractive to contemporary viewers which was proved by over 409 million views just via their free application (“The Chosen: Stream the series”). You can also download it to your phone and be blessed!
Millions have been moved to find out more about Jesus. We see it as an enormous opportunity and we pray that combined with our online follow-up towards discipleship, it will lead to a significant revival. Indeed, in Poland we pray for 15 million viewers (out of a 40-million population) and would like to see 2% (300,000) seriously deciding to follow Jesus! We are so excited about this opportunity! Massive promotion is planned: in TV, satellite, VOD, DVDs and in churches. Particularly small groups viewing the episodes together and then discussing them – that’s our dream. You may just imagine the challenge and the amount of work that is ahead! Please, pray for the multiplication of all the resources!
Our time in Dallas was excellent, talking to the creators of the film, actors but also strategizing towards best usage of this opportunity in our context. Thank you, Lord!
Given that background, it is obvious why we planned our annual e-coach conference to be on a subject “You are Chosen”. Chosen to be in Jesus. Chosen to be fishermen. Chosen to be the light to the world. Our speakers were – Eric Celerier, a dear, long-term Friend, founder of Jesus.net and initiator of daily reading notes “A miracle every day”, currently read by around one million people in various languages, written presently by multiple authors including my Bogusia in Polish; and Oliver Raper, for many years the director of Christian Vision, a great motivator and speaker. So you may just imagine we had a great time – time that only the Lord can prepare! For the first time – we had the conference in 3 languages – alongside Polish we had Ukrainian, as a number of Ukrainian partners participated, as well as English, given the “Grow Your Life” platform leaders came too.
In the meantime, the “regular” work goes on, with approximately 80 new people signing up for the online discipleship courses daily! Thank you, dear Friends, for your prayers. This whole ministry has outgrown us long ago, now we just want to follow Jesus’ lead.
And in just a few days, with dear American friends, we shall go for a very short visit to Ukraine, for time of prayer and encouragement. And then start again an “Outback season” – we will participate and co-organize three Outback camps in September/October. Life is full, but exciting! We should serve the Lord as long as we can.
Yes, Friends, we would be very thankful if you would join us in prayer for all those matters. We treasure so much your friendship!
God bless you!
