I have just got back from the airport where I said good bye to Jenny from Richhill Presbyterian who was helping us in Krakow for two months with our English Club (Vox Box).
Jenny is currently taking a gap year and she decided to spend some time in Krakow and help with the church-plant by leading our English club, teaching a Catechism class at church on Sundays, teaching English and making new contacts for the team.
Our small fellowship appreciates all the contribution that Jenny has made and we will continue praying for Jenny as she will be working on her degree starting in autumn and for God’s guidance for her future.
We are also continuously looking for more people who would give a few weeks or months of their time to the work in Krakow, whether it’s young people doing a gap year, seminary students seeking to do a placement/internship in a cross-cultural environment or simply people taking a break from work.
At the last Vox Box led by Jenny
Vox Box – Bangladeshi Night. Before coming to Krakow Jenny spent three months in Bangladesh.
In March, I was doing deputation in Northern Ireland, visiting churches and people who have been supporting the church-plant or are interested in supporting the work in Krakow. With our hopes to start an education centre in Krakow, a fair amount of fund-raising is yet to be done. However, during this trip I feel like we have made some progress with the help of Richhill Presbyterian Church and a few more churches in the area that would like to get engaged in missions. Krakow team will be going to Northern Ireland at the end of April to meet some of these churches.
Tullyallen Presbyterian Church, County Armagh, Northern Ireland where I preached on a Sunday morning.
Mountnorris Presbyterian Church.
Craigy Hill Presbyterian Church, Larne.
Because I have to preach in English in these churches, I get stressed before the service and forget to ask someone to take a picture of me while I am preaching. As a result you only get to see photos of sanctuaries that I would take before the service 🙂
A quick update on the translation of R.C. Sproul’s pamphlet on baptism into Polish. With gratefulness I would like to announce that a family from Richhill Presbyterian has already funded this translation! Translation process should begin within a month. If you would like to see what Reformed English materials we dream of having translated into Polish, please go to this website. If you would like to sponsor translation of another ebook from that list, please let me know.
Please pray for the following needs:
– Saszko’s seminary studies (next trip to Kiev for seminary is at the end of May, in the meantime I hope to pass my homiletics course)
– Short and long-term English speakers to lead Vox Box English club in Krakow
– more workers for the Krakow team and especially Polish people to join the team
– Michael – a 75-year old Polish man who has been regularly coming to church
– update on Dave – thank you everyone who prayed. Dave is back and has already been doing occasional preaching. He studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (online)
– we praise the Lord for bringing Jenny our way – exactly what we had needed! Her help is much appreciated and we hope to see Jenny back again 🙂
– our team’s trip to Northern Ireland (27 April – 4 May)
– registering a charity foundation our church-plant could legally operate under and starting the Education Centre in October
– a concert with Michelle Jenkins – an opera singer from New York (Redeemer Presbyterian) is coming to Krakow in November to do a concert organised by our church-plant. Pray for a suitable venue
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR SUPPORT!!!
