Dear Friends, summer is over, many of us were able to get some rest and had a chance to think about the future. My personal conclusion is that the future is great, because we are in the hands of our Lord!
So many times we have experienced His faithfulness, that despite everything that is happening around us, we may just follow His guidance! What a relief!
With Ann and Chuck Bentley, John Handelsman and Bill Hightower at CEF.
During the summer months, we had a wonderful privilege to meet some of our Friends and Partners, who meant so much to us and who influenced our lives and ministry so much!
But it was also a good opportunity to pray and strategize for our next moves. As some of our staff is dedicated to different projects, we held two-day offsites to brainstorm the best future actions. One of the hot topics was how to adjust our current structure to the new directions that we are moving towards. We started our work 48 years ago, whereas so much has changed since then! As a music group DEOdecyma (ten for God) we were reaching some 4500 people a year, the Communism was down (at least in Poland), freedom, many opportunities, but what to choose? Nobody was even dreaming about today’s options…
As mentioned previously, now that recordings are some 2% of our activities – we want to replace the name “DEOrecordings” (recordings for God) into a more appropriate one that describes what we really do. Presently, our favorite new name for our non-profit association is: DEOlink (linking with God). How do you like it?
Yes, Radio FEST is finally sold! Thank you for your encouragement and prayers. Recently our Board decided to back down from radio activities altogether, as it costs more and more while spiritual results are challenging to track. Having very effective digital tools, we want to focus on what brings the best, measurable results. This was not an easy decision – we experienced so many answered prayers and have seen some great responses, but time is passing and methods must be adjusted to be good stewards of all the resources.
The Ukrainian team that works with us in Wisla has reached another milestone: 20 000 people on the discipleship platform! Thank you, Jesus! Presently the majority of students live in Ukraine and after they complete a course – church ambassadors pay them a visit and bring a special present: a book, or a Bible and invite to visit their church. Over 1 000 such instances have already happened! It is called “the courier of hope”.
Just now we are in the middle of Outback weekends – the first September-one was just finished and the second – starts tomorrow, as I write it. The results are very much the same – tens (!) of families reunited, discovering Jesus! I wish you could see it yourself! Next year we plan and pray to add 3 new sites, as the interest is huge! Please, pray for it with us!
Yes, Friends, we would be very thankful if you would join us in prayer for all those matters. We treasure your friendship so much!
God bless you!
