I love to spend time inspiring church members for the great commission. Originally, it was scheduled to serve an orphanage this month in Africa that our church has financially supported - in the Ivory Coast. Scheduling difficulties forced some quick changes and we ended up in Lubin, Poland.
A church plant is launching into a full-blown step of faith as they seek to build a building to house a couple hundred in a main auditorium, plus rooms for ministries and even an english school which is a great platform for creating relationships.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from that trip. Most of the photos are from contacts from their church, but a few are from city scenes or evangelistic contacts I made in a park.
Probably the grouchiest appearing priest I have ever witnessed.
Sławek is a servant whose life was changed with the gospel of a living Christ.
The hands of a servant.
Sławek - not much gray about his stance for Jesus and testimony.
This man serves his community as the director of a home for handicapped. He also headed as a city councilman the push to grant property to the church plant.
This dating couple in the park allowed me to share the gospel with them. They have lived rough lives and I encouraged them to give their hearts and cares to our heavenly father.
Oleg has been a believer for a few years and is now the construction site foreman for the church building.
Our assignment was to produce a couple videos that can be used to inform their partners of the opportunity to participate in financing and building this church building.
It required many hours, but we were able to complete the task in two days - although that did not allow for much sleep or sight-seeing.
