“Overwhelmed with joy”

Below are a few more excerpts from our team in Poland. They are continuing to help lead an English language camp and building relationships with the Polish ladies. Through these relationships, our team has opportunities to share the truth of Jesus Christ and how He is part of their lives. The email is from our team leader, Priscilla Young.

“Polinica Zdroj (the location of the camp) is beautiful. It was built before the war when this was Germany, so a lot of the buildings have a real German or Austrian look. There are lots of sharp roofs, wooden balconies with beautiful flower boxes, and sidewalk cafes. There is also a promenade in town with beautiful flower gardens, park, and fountain. While walking back to our hotel one evening, we saw a music, water, and light show at the fountain – what a nice surprise.

“We’ve all been getting less sleep than we’d like, mostly due to late night conversations followed by early mornings. Most days we wake up early whether we want to or not. Most nights the lights are on until at least midnight, and the mornings are starting about six. But God is strengthening us for our full days. For the Polish women, speaking in English is intensive and exhausting, but it is also tiring for us to remember to speak slowly and to always be helping and coaching their English.

Overall, the ladies from Dallas are overwhelmed with the joy of this experience. There is no way to describe the openness, the environment among the women, the reception we’ve had, and the conversations that have taken place. Our contacts is Poland, Ruth and Rebecca, have done an amazing job over the years. The ladies in Poland love to sing and make crafts. When it comes to making bracelets with colored beads or stamping greeting cards, they are like little girls. Our ladies have fallen in love with the Polish women.”
