Check out this short video presentation on the first mission trip to Poland this year. 22 of God’s servants experienced tremendous blessing as they worked with the Polish children and young people. Gary Adair, from Randalstown was one of the leaders on the trip and the following report is a short account of his time in Poland. We trust this video and report will inspire you get involved in this amazing work and witness first hand how God is moving in the lives of young people in Poland.
”My first trip to Poland was in September 2010 when we spent 4 days with Henrick. The team I was with was involved in food drops, taking services in orphanages and spending a full day doing workshops and children’s meetings at the Baptist College, Warsaw. The Lord blessed me and encouraged me so much during that trip that when heard the team was coming out in Feb 2011, I decided once again to come along on the trip. This trip lasted for 1 week in Wesla. Our team from Northern Ireland consisted of 24 members plus a number of Polish leaders. A total of 65 Polish orphans attending the camp. God really blessed from the beginning of the trip by bonding the team in unity and this lasted for the duration of the camp.
I enjoyed the trip being longer this time, because it gave me more time to speak with the Polish leaders and find out about the children which gave me a better understanding of their homes and lives. The children were all so friendly and wanted to spend time with the team. Their behaviour during the workshops was excellent and each one of them wanted to participate fully from the youngest to the oldest no matter what the workshop was.
The main reason for coming on the trip was to share the precious gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. During the meetings, both morning and evening, it was wonderful to see the Children so enthusiastic in worshipping the Lord. It was also wonderful being part of the team and taking part in the meetings.
I found the teaching of the bible stories especially blessed. On Friday night was a night when God really came down in the meeting and dealt in the lives of a number of the children and a young Polish woman. I have met a lot of very special children and young people during this week and I hope to keep in contact with some of them. I pray that God will continue to bless the work of brother Henrick as he labours faithfully with the children in Poland. God’s word tells us in Isaiah 55v11 ‘So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”.
