July 2 | Day 2

Different day.  Same outfits.

This morning we attended the church plant with which we will be working/serving, Zachód Społeczność Chrześcijańska (Christian Fellowship West).  Christian Fellowship West is the only evangelical church in Bemowo, a suburb of Warsaw, and that is why we are so thrilled to be working through them to serve and reach out to the community.   The church has been meeting for 18 Sundays, and they are already averaging around 50 people.

We loved hearing Pastor Adam preach on Isaiah 44, even if we had to have the Polish translated for us.  It was an amazing reminder of how many different languages there are in the world and that God speaks every one of them.

In the evening, we participated in a prayer walk around Bemowo.  It was a wonderful opportunity to pray for the people who live in this region before we begin forming relationships and working with them tomorrow.  We were encouraged by learning that, before starting each church, the Polish team invests around 1,000 hours of prayer into that particular region.

The day concluded with kebabs and Polish pizza (with cranberry sauce on top), as well as some shopping for new clothes since we are still waiting for our luggage (eye roll).

Please pray that the people of Bemovo would know Jesus!
