It is very difficult to share what God allowed me to do for Him for 4 1/2 weeks in Czech Republic and Poland. Any stories or comments that I share are only because of God, not me. I am only willing to be obedient to God’s calling to go and share His Good News.
“And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’” Romans 10:15
Less than 1% of the populations of these countries are believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Czech Republic is still the most atheistic country in Europe and Poland is 90% Catholic, where the majority worship Mary and consider any other religion to be a sect or cult. I work with the local churches and pastors and help them with evangelism and also encouraging the believers.
“He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.” Luke 10:16
I was very busy in many cities, small towns and villages. Some days I had 3-5 scheduled places to go to share music and the Gospel. Many places I was there for only 2 days and then traveled to the next place for a similar schedule. I ministered with many pastors I have known before and also in many new areas. I give you all greetings from my dear friends and your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Here is an idea where I went to tell about the Good News of Jesus Christ:
- Public Elementary & High Schools
- Nursing homes
- Psychiatric Hospital
- Homes for disabled
- Night Clubs
- Concert halls
- Street ministry
- House groups
- Taught class on Missions/Evangelism at Seminary
- Christian Schools
- Delivered food to poor families
- Soup Kitchen
There were challenges through the trip with my health, concerning my strength and rest. I felt that I was under attack throughout the trip, as everywhere I went I shared the need we all have for a Savior in Jesus Christ.
Many of the places I could really sense darkness and the spiritual battle.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
I have been invited back by all the pastors and they ask that I stay longer in their areas next time. Many pastors and church members told me that the messages I preached were exactly what they needed to hear.
“Usually when a guest speaker comes, my mind wanders because all the messages are the same. But your message really got my attention. Thank you.”

“For years we invite people in the town to come to church, but no one comes. Tonight, the town sponsored your concert, and 15–20 people came to hear your music, but most important…you shared the Gospel with them. It is a miracle to me.”
— Pastor, Czech Republic
To God be the Glory!
“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

“I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” Luke 15:7
