Third Quarter Partners Update

Gateway to English began lessons on September 13. With five full-time teachers, we were able to sign up over 130 students. Some students are new and some are returning after coming for many years. It is really good to be able to welcome students in person. We hope that we will be able to continue lessons face to face and not go back to lessons online.

AIM 20-Year Celebration

The team in the early years

Matthew Gingerich writes,

On the last Sunday afternoon in September, the AIM team, Agape church members, other Polish friends, and the two visiting AIM board couples (Shannon and Joella Lehman and Samuel and Suzanne Sommers), gathered to celebrate God’s faithfulness over the duration of AIM’s presence in Poland. The first long-term team came to Poland in 2001, so this year marks twenty years that the mission has been operating in Mińsk Mazowiecki. It was a special time to look at pictures together and hear memories and testimonies from people who have been so connected to AIM through the years. We have received a lot of support and love from many Polish people. In turn, we heard testimonies of numerous people who have come to know Jesus personally and who have been encouraged in the faith through the work of AIM.

I was reminded of the Apostle Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians: “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.” Many AIM staff have come and gone over the years. It can be hard to know what one’s actions today are actually accomplishing, but I can see numerous instances of one person’s work bearing fruit even long after they have left Poland.
