Psa 94:14 For the Lord will not cast off nor spurn His people, neither will He abandon His heritage. - Amplified. Psa 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever--forsake not the works of Your own hands. - Amplified
Right after Eurocon P. Maciek Kniechak, Kyle Benoit and Bryan Ackerman took a trip to Poland visiting our 4 churches in 7 days all over Poland; Wroclaw, Krakow, Gdansk, & Warsaw. The underlying thought of the trip for me was that God never forsakes the works of His own hands. The work of God began in Poland for GGWO in 1986 and it continues today by his mercy and loving kindness that endures forever.
One of the highlights was in Gdansk visiting P. Mariusz, Gosia, and their son Mateusz. There was a woman there in his church named Bozena who is having chemotherapy treatments for cancer. Bozena has been used as a vessel of joyful news in the cancer ward there as she shared with dying people the Hope of Grace. One 4 year old girl said when Bozena asked her if she knew God; "Who is he?" was her reply. Bozena went on to share about Christ and His presence around her during this little girl's suffering during chemotherapy and when she finished a huge smile lit up the girls face. This little one went to the arms of Jesus a month and a half later. Many have found Christ through Bozena's testimony. You may see her joyful picture in the links below.
Please pray for the pastors there in Poland: P. Maciek, P. Robert, P. Tomek, P. Mariusz and Sergay. Please see the link below for an awesome video of the trip to Poland. (it's about 21mb so it may take time to download). Check to the right margin for the schedule this spring and summer in Poland. Join us for the Spring Conference at a real castle May 1-3!
Rev 3:8 "I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name." - Amplified
This years' EuroCon was blessed with the sound of the mighty wings of many angels that rushed in at the gathering of the European Body of Christ, as well as many other international guests. One count I had heard was 1200 people with 800 guests. P. Schaller's messages on the Open Door, Guilt, and P. Scibelli' s message on "Long Time" and P. Gary's message on Sin; were some of the many messages that spoke to my heart. Haveing approximantly 50 Ukrainians and 29 Poles that came was a precious gift for us that lived in these countries as missionaries.
God has given us as His Church keys. Some of these keys are: The Gospel of Grace, Unconditional Love of God, Humility, and Prayer. These keys open doors that are locked by pride, sight, and rationalistic thinking. Remember that Satan has no keys, his were taken away: Rev. 1:18 & 20:1. Neither is the Devil able to close doors. Therefore there is no door locked to the Believer, only the appearance thereof. As we draw near by faith to doors that God leads us to; these doors that look so intimidating; they will waver, melt and dissappear before the authority of Christ. These keys are powerful, they are given by grace to us with authority to bless and open doors of people's hearts, cultures, and spiritual doors that are like the door of Achor in the valley.
