This July Nate and I will be traveling to Chojnice, Poland with International Messengers/our church (New Hope) to help run a family camp where we will teach English using the Bible as our primary text.
We have never experienced an overseas missions trip before, so we see this as a great opportunity to share the love of Jesus with the people of Poland. In our training packets that IM sent us, they wrote that Poland has a population of 40,000,000 people but probably less than one-tenth of 1% have a personal relationship with Christ (Matthew 15:8-9). There are only about 80 missionaries in Poland (about 1 for every 500,000 people). Most people have never owned a Bible or read it.
Since we started dating Nate and I have always wanted to go on an overseas missions trip to serve God (Mark 16:15) but have not seriously considered it until this year. After some reading, praying and lots of late night conversations, we finally committed. It's exciting and scary all at the same time! Be watching for more posts about this exciting opportunity!
