Mission Trip Highlight: Glogow, Poland

Trip Date: October 17-28, 2011
Price for trip: $2000

Our Baptist Association has been involved in a partnership with Poland now for more than 12 years. This October, a mission trip will be taking a team to the city of Glogow, Poland to share the gospel. 

Poland is a nation that has gone through numerous historical abuses. From the German and Soviet invasions in World War 2, where more than 6 million Polish people died, to the post war communist rule until 1989, Poland is a nation that has experienced tremendous atrocities. While Poland is more than 88 percent Catholic, less than a third of that number attend any church on Sunday. Operation World, a mission’s prayer organization, lists Poland at #28 on their list of countries with the lowest evangelical population. According to their research, only 0.25 percent of the Polish population is evangelical. This means that Poland is less evangelical than countries like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Libya! Clearly, a Biblical understanding of Salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus alone is desperately needed.    
This trip will focus on evangelistic outreaches to the people of Glogow, Poland, a city of 75,000 people. The team will be working alongside the Christians of GloGow’s only evangelical church: “Christian Baptist Church.” The outreach will primarily involve English Language Ministry, working through the church’s local ministry called “The Logos Language Center.”  Through meetings to help people better use English, much effort will go into spreading the Gospel and inviting people to begin a relationship with Jesus. Many opportunities will be available to make friends with the intent of sharing Jesus. 

Would you pray about taking the Gospel to the unreached people of Poland? Would you be willing to step out of your comfort zone to go minister in one of the most unreached countries in the world? Will you trust God for the safety and finances and ministry opportunities?  Is God calling you to join with this team?
If you have any interest in this trip, we need to hear from you by Sunday, July 10. You can call the church office at 734-3546 or call me at 325-0528 to be added to the list. 

May God bless all of our mission efforts this year – local, state, and global!
