While in Germany last November, Karl and Phil took a road trip to Poland to meet with Alex and a few key leaders in the southwest part of the country. Alex is a pastor from the Crimea in Ukraine and was also our translator when we were there several years ago. However, due to the changeover of Crimea from Ukraine to Russia, he and his family emigrated to Poland. They are now learning the language and anticipate starting a church in Poland.
Karl and Phil had the opportunity to meet with Alex and his wife as well as share with a key pastor in the region regarding our ministry and how we could serve his team and the church of Poland. In May of this year Phil will be returning to the region to continue with the training in Magdeburg and Alex and the rest of the team will join them from Poland.
