Hey all!

November in Poznan means we have two new holidays to celebrate...All Saints' Day (11/1) and St. Martin's Day (11/11). How cool is that?

Check out our Facebook photo albums here and here.

Our Prayer for this Place

As I (Aaron) was doing some reading during my devotions this morning, I came across a passsage from Paul's second epistle to the Thessalonians that struck me as clear, coherent synthesis of our prayer/desire/vision for continued development and maturation of the Sweet Surrender coffeehouse/house church location here in Poznan:

"Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring...

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ." (II Thessalonians 1:2-4, 11-12)

Make it so, Lord, we pray! :)

Ev & Rhonda in the States

Just a quick note to ask for your prayers for our mission directors, Rev. Ev and Rhonda Tustin. They recently returned from a month-long fundraising tour in the United States during which Ev's father passed away.

Please pray that God will continue to guide and comfort Ev & Rhonda, as well as their friends and family members (especially Ev's mom and elderly grandmothers), in this time of ransition.

Thanks for your prayers...we always need and appreciate them! :)
