In the cool of the basement, we listened to Oksana share her personal testimony and experience working at Ostróda Camp full time. “It’s just like it says in Matthew, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.’” (Matthew 9:37) With our hearts full of love for God, Poland and the ministry we’ve been involved with for several years now, we can’t imagine not giving a portion of our year to be those workers. God has given us the time, ability and passion to go, disciple and serve. He’s given others different gifts. Some are true prayer warriors, fighting the spiritual battle that rages on unseen. Some are encouragers, healing and lifting up those who are beaten down. And others have been given a generous spirit to give whatever they have financially – big or small. When it comes to missions, we often think of the people who get on a plane and go. But it takes the whole body of Christ to grow the Kingdom of God, and the ones who send play just as important of a role. It doesn’t matter how much we want to go if we can’t buy plane tickets or if Satan steals our passion.
Will you prayerfully consider joining us in ministry? We are seeking partners (individuals, families, Sunday School classes, small groups, churches, etc.) who believe in the power of missions and will come along side us to share the love of God. We need you – whether you can give of your time (you could go with us), commit to regular prayer, or help us financially. On the money side, we hope to have a few people who will commit to monthly donations. If we can find just 20 partners who can give $50 per month starting in October, we will have our airfare by the end of March when we need to buy. If you can’t commit to that much, don’t let that stop you! God blesses even the smallest gifts when they are given from the heart.
Becoming a ministry partner is easy. Just fill out our simple form. In about a week, you’ll receive your partnership packet with everything you need to stay informed, connected and able to support us in the way God has called you. With it comes the gratitude of a family that just wants to obey God’s leading, and the countless people who will be impacted by what He has planned.
In His Service,
Ben, Rachel, Anna and Ethan Porter
