As you look at the pictures from SGA-supported Pastor Dmitri’s report below, note the vast number of people there. Each one with a different story and with various battles in their heart. The message preached was based on the Parable of the Soils.
We are reminded that not all the seed of the Gospel will take root and grow bearing fruit, but only with those that have “ears to hear,” those in whom God has opened their hearts to faith in Jesus. So it is, that the faithful shepherds scatter the seed, and for those that believe, make disciples. But it is God who gives the growth.
This underscores the importance of our work together—friends like you who stand with SGA through your generosity and prayers—in equipping the churches we serve as they advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ to their people. For what good have we done if we help them eat and be warm—through the provision of food, water, clothing and other emergency humanitarian aid—but have not pointed them to Christ? For it is to this end our Savior came, to redeem His people that they may dwell with Him eternally and walk in His footsteps.
This world is passing away, and soon the new will come. Hallelujah! “And he said to all, If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me (Luke 9:23).
Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord!
I want to share with you about today’s meeting in our church.
Today we were able to have another evangelistic meeting, using the help we received from SGA through the Poland team. About 400 people came to this meeting. Mothers with children, the disabled and those who need daily bread. The people were listening attentively to the sermon of our brother-preacher. The sermon was about the different soil where the Word of God is being sown. There was a general prayer.
Many gratitude words were expressed for the help that was provided in this difficult time. We pray that the seeds of the sown Word will grow for the salvation of many lives.
May our Heavenly Father bless you all with His rich blessings! Thank you for supporting our people and our churches. We pray for you as well!
For His Kingdom,
