Fall 2015 Newsletter

Relationship-building in ministry requires good communication and, as Anita Yoder shares, words are not the only way to communicate. This edition of the AIM newsletter includes her reflections on communicating in Poland and a report on our English Day Camp in Minsk Mazowiecki.

August Update

Here’s what happened in August 2015:

  • Marlin enjoyed having two friends from home visit for a week. He also enjoyed having his family visit for 10 days. They enjoyed seeing around Minsk Mazowiecki as well as traveling some across Poland.
  • On Friday Sharon completed an intensive Polish course in Warsaw. She has now had her first major introduction to the complexities of the Polish language. She really enjoyed the experience.
    We enjoyed our time with the Syrian refugees but our interaction was short lived. Around three weeks after they arrived they ran away with no trace of where they went. They had become more and more discontent with life here in Poland.
  • Church services have been smaller as many Poles enjoy a long summer vacation visiting family, friends, or relaxing in a quiet spot in the lake region.
    We are very busy at Gateway To English preparing for the upcoming school year. Cleaning, painting, rearranging, and attending to small details all prepare the school to be an inviting place for our students.

July Update

Here’s what happened in July 2015:

  • Day Camp is over for this year in Minsk Mazowiecki. What a super time! This year a local brother, Mateusz, took the responsibility of leading and organizing. He did a super job. Shannon Lehman, Heidi Weaver, and David Glick came to help this year. It was fun interacting with the kids and seeing their excitement! It was also very encouraging to hand the responsibilities over to the local brothers and see them excel with their God-given talents.
  • Lavern, Lolita, and family are gone on their long-awaited furlough in the US. It’s been four years since they last saw many of their friends and family.
  • Jewel Gingerich is also on furlough in the states for the rest of the summer.
  • We are happy to welcome Sharon Spicher from Belleville, PA to our team of teachers! She is arriving this week.
  • Two Syrian refugee families have arrived recently. Pray for clear direction as we work with them.
