Another travel day. Jagoda, our Polish bubble, picked us up and delivered us to the train station. “Come back soon,” she said. “We can put you to work for a whole month speaking for our groups in Poland.” The train rolled in, and true to European fashion, stayed for only one minute. We barely had time to say our goodbyes before the whistle blew and we were off.
The instant we climbed on board, we were greeted by Anya, another IM friend. She’d translated for me when I was in Poland last September, and she was to be my translator for the women’s meeting in Radom, our next destination. What a joy to see her again. She’s in her mid 20s, attending university in Warsaw to develop her talent as an artist. Her passion for the Lord runs deep; she has wisdom beyond her years.
Several other IM coworkers met us in Radom and took us to their apartment. The entire day was a feast of getting to know each other better. In the evening we shared a precious time of praying together for the country of Poland. When we said “Amen,” Anya broke into song. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness…” We weren’t exactly a choir ready to go on tour, nevertheless we felt the presence of God fill that tiny apartment and our hearts were blessed. What a privilege to be partners with the Lord in building His kingdom in this country.
