The Beginning of Expectancy Unfolded

The other day I had the great pleasure to share a meal with 4 very incredible Young Adults. All of them have a hunger for more of Jesus. And each one of them are individuals that exhibit the character and heart of Jesus. It was a great time to share how we desire to grow in Jesus and our personal expectations, needs, and desires.

As a result of our time together we decided that we needed to start meeting regularly in Nowy Targ. There were a number of reasons but the greatest was that more and more people seem to be interested and the travel to Zakopane is too difficult because of the lack of private vehicles and the time it takes to travel by public transportation. “If only we could meet in Nowy Targ those with a strong desire to grow in Jesus could attend more regularly. And those that are seeking would feel more comfortable visit without being stuck without return transportation.”

There was also the desire to have a meeting just for young people. They all expressed their love for the “Ladies” in the church but they are 2 generations older than them. Talk about a GENERATION GAP – Yikes! Their spiritual needs are also quite different.

So, what does all this mean…
Starting Wednesday they will begin working on the rooms in my basement to prepare the big room for a new meeting space.

What needs to be done?
The 2 small rooms need to be cleaned and secured (locks etc.) so that the items stored in the large room can be move.
The large room needs to be cleaned out and consulted into the small rooms.
The large room needs the following:
Wall board and insulation (sound proofing)
Sound proof door and locks
New windows
Tile for around the sink (we have a sink)
Light fixtures
Sound equipment

We hope to have this room ready for use by the time the team from Seattle comes the end of March.
Monday we will start a home group/Bible study in my home until the new room is ready.

Please pray with us that the Lord would be in the midst of all of our time together.

Maybe our team can help finish this room while we are there! We are good at painting and doing basic manual labor.

Denise, I have to apoligize for not staying in contact better. I could use the excuse that we "are so busy", it is partcially true, but the full truth is that "out of sight, out of mind" is at work here. So, Alexis and I are making an attempt at putting Poland in front of our eyes to continually pray and be reminded to communicate. We are having a 24-7 prayer week here in Gresham, and each time I/we have been here (at least once a day) I/we have prayed for Poland, your people, and both churches, we love you all and miss all of you. Please share with everyone there that we have had some attacks reguarding our marriage plans from some family members, yet we know God's promises and are excited to perservere through this trial. Thanks!
