During my last time in Kraków, God also put another ministry on my heart: Word of Life church near the village of my family. Let’s just say that I have been praying since my salvation over 10 years ago that I may somehow partner in ministry with a church near the villages of my family. […]
We were sure we won the battle for her medication to be re-funded by the Polish Socialized Medical Care. A positive decision on the part of the Polish Medical Authorities was made last spring. The re-fund plan was to be introduced last June, then August, then October, then November. Now…
Not long ago, Slawek’s alcohol-induced tantrums estranged him from his family. He was unable to hold a steady job in the shifting construction market. His entire life’s work, everything he’s been working so hard to build, turned into a million tiny, almost un-reconstructable pieces.
A doctor works in Poland on the weekdays, then hops to Ireland over the weekend for a marathon of back-to-back surgeries. Students patchwork their degrees from universities in Portugal, Switzerland, and France while logging charity work in Latin America.Businesspeople arrive in a city only for a day to cinch a well-timed deal, then are off to the next thing. How can those embracing the modern, mobile world be reached and connected to God’s people and His Word?
Over my ten-plus years in Poland, I have participated in a number of children’s camps, and the Lord has granted me the privilege of praying a salvation prayer with 15-20 kids. The first two boys who ever asked me to pray this prayer with them were in my Bible class at a camp in the summer of 2003. One of these two was a 10-year-old boy named Krzyś. Unfortunately, we have very little chance for follow-up on the kids at camp, so I’ve often wondered what effect the salvation prayers have had on the kids’ lives after camp. As is typical in Poland, Krzyś and I had no opportunity for further contact after our summer camp ended.

Eventually he became second in authority to Emperor Maximilian.
Most of us think we can handle our life alone, thank you very much. We don’t need nothing from nobody. I was like that, too. I thought I had it all figured out.
After six of the last eight plus weeks being either in southern Africa or in Eastern Europe, my body’s internal clock has pretty much gone haywire. For the whole week that I have been home my body has insisted on transitioning from deep sleep to wide awake at anywhere from 2:15 am to 3:35 am. Driving to the ITMI office at our normal starting time mentally feels like I’m arriving in the mid-afternoon, due to my work day starting 5-6 hours before.
Winter has definitely overtaken Poland, but I honestly love it. The temperature typically hovers in the teens and low twenties (Fahrenheit), though this past week we have been in the single digits during the day and below zero at night. With a continual covering of snow and ice, it is just beautiful. (Thankfully, though, my […]
