Welcome to Warsaw
Lord prepare me to be a sanctuary
Pure and holy, tried and true
With thanksgiving I’ll be a living
Sanctuary for You
To the nations, we follow you Lord
Be Exalted! Be Adored!
Come Lord Jesus and lead your people
To the nations, to all lands
The words to this beloved hymn rang throughout the apartment as the Warsaw Mission Team oriented at the missionaries’ home in the neighborhood of Ursynów. The second verse is an addition by Thom Wolf that has especially encouraged the local missions team in Warsaw.
After a long day of travel, the team has settled into their accommodations and become familiar with the city and its public transportation system. Orientation included a meet-and-greet with the missionaries, a Polish language lesson, an overview of the culture in Warsaw, and a traditional Polish meal at the popular restaurant, Zapiecek.
A small group from the team attended an English club, sharing about America (and Texas!) and allowing the group to practice their English skills. To help draw people to the conversations, American favorites were shared. Dr. Pepper and American candy were big hits! These clubs provide a unique opportunity to share the gospel, as everyone in attendance desires to talk with the team.
Tomorrow begins street evangelism and inviting people to events to be held in the evening. Thank you for your continued encouragement for the team! Here’s how you can pray:
- That the Lord would prepare the team’s hearts to reach the nations
- Continued stamina
- Open hearts to the gospel
- Good attendance at events and opportunities to share the gospel
