When COVID-19 became a global pandemic, many missionaries were forced to return to the U.S. or made the decision to return because it was the best choice for their families. Kelvin and Elizabeth Joseph* made the opposite decision and remained in Poland.
Just after making the decision to stay, God blessed their obedience and a young man Kelvin had been sharing the Gospel with since they arrived in Poland prayed to receive Christ.
Being in Poland gave Kelvin the chance to disciple his friend face-to-face for six additional months. Just before Christmas 2020, the young man organized a Bible study with a mutual friend who also prayed to receive Christ!
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program allows missionaries around the world to make a difference for the Gospel no matter the situation or circumstance.
PRAY for God to bless these new disciples and also to continue to open miraculous doors for the Joseph’s ministry.
