Every summer there are many mission opportunities here in Poland and we encourage our team to take part in these mission opportunities. Anna Galvan is the latest worker on our team and here is her report from one of the missions this summer.
“And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.”
I was invited to join the Generation Plus team for the Krasnik Mission in which, I gladly accepted. Speaking to the leader of this mission she shared her heart, vision and expectations for this mission. Knowing that preparation, prayer, and fasting were important keys to see a move of God like never before in this city, she took the step of faith and stood in the gap for this city and mission. For 3 months she prepared and many people joined her in prayer and fasting including her team. On Sunday, August 27th, the 7 day mission began and our team was together in Krasnik ready to do the work of the Kingdom. This team was formed by young people who came from different parts of Poland. Though we didn’t know many on the team we would later realize God had put the right people in this team for this mission. The vision, expectations and plan of this mission were communicated to the team by the leader and her team from the beginning setting us on a course of expecting to see miracles, people to have encounters with God, and people give their lives to Jesus.
The atmosphere of expectancy was set and now we were ready to see the miracles of God during this mission. Divided by 2's we approached people on the streets daily sharing the gospel of Jesus, praying for healing and inviting them to a 2 day evangelistic meeting where Jakub Kamiński would speak. While out evangelizing one day 2 of our team members approached a man that was sitting on a bench who was unable to walk because of a strong pain in his legs and stomach. He was asked if they could pray for him and he said yes. They prayed for him and God healed the man. He then got up and started walking around when he couldn’t do it before. Glory to God!!!! After this healing miracle they gave him a Bible he started to read it and tell his friends that this is true. Hallelujah!
The time had come for the 2 day evangelistic meeting where many people from near and far came. We had a time of worship and the ex professional soccer player, Jakub Kamiński, took the mic both days and began to share the healing miracle and transformation God did in His life. With such passion and anointing he spoke to the polish people sharing the true gospel of Jesus Christ. As the altar call was made for those who wanted to give their lives to Jesus we saw many many people came forth. In the 2 days we witnessed a total of 100 people giving their lives to Jesus. Praise God!!! Amazed by this I thought to myself all our work, efforts, prayers, fasting, sacrifices, tiredness, time and trials was worth it all. The time came where our team assisted in praying for the people and we witnessed many people healed and people filled with the Holy Spirit. Encounters with God were seen as people's lives were being transformed right before us. On a few occasions God gave me word of knowledge and prophecy for a few people. One particular young man I was giving a word to was broken right before my eyes and tears just ran down his face and he began to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit. Another occasion the team leader and I prayed for a man who wanted to be filled with the Holy Spirit and he was filled. There are too many testimonies to share but I will say this God is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. Biblical time miracles are not a thing from the past but very much still happening today as we have witnessed in Krasnik. After such successful time a fellowship meeting was arranged for the new converts to meet and greet them and a bible study was set up by the team leader and local pastor of the church. That following Sunday some of the new converts did come to the local church.
To be part of this mission was such an awesome experience. To work alongside a group of young people who love God, are worshippers, caring, passionate for the lost souls, talented, anointed, bold, courageous, and not ashamed of the gospel was such an honor and I'm so happy for this opportunity. To see such young leader want to please God and do only His will during the mission and lead with such passion, dedication, commitment, love for the lost souls, care, anointed, and an great example to the team was so inspiring. This team was truly put together by God to fulfill His purpose and plan for the mission of Krasnik.
In conclusion, many lives were changed and transformed in Krasnik. The miracles we saw that week were evidence that God is alive and real. So what I have witnessed with my own eyes written briefly in this article brings me to a conclusion that prayer, fasting, obedience and the atmosphere of expectation truly is the breeding ground for miracles. Finally, I say Mission Krasnik was a success! To God be the glory!!!
