Derek's February Poland Trip







Derek spoke at a conference in northwest Poland in February and was incredibly blessed by the precious believers there. The conference theme was "Adoption and the Father's Heart". Derek was able to tell the story of our entire adoption journey and share in depth on the theological foundation for adoption. Many responded to the message and began praying about and pursuing adoption. We love the Polish believers so much because they have an incredible spirit of strength, prayer, passion, and understanding of meaningful community. Each time Derek has the privilege of ministering there he feels he's made new lifelong friends. Here are a few pictures of his time in Gorzow . Thank you Pastor Bogdan for your incredible kindness, humility, solid leadership, and hospitality! We love you guys

This is very encouraging! May the same Spirit which moves in the people of Poland move in the people of Hungary. Adoption is not looked upon very "favorably" here by most. BUT GOD!!! Blessings on the Polish people and may many little ones find families there!

I just found your blog today after a Google search of Poland and adoption.

As an adoptive mom three times over with teens from Poland....I just want to say thank you for all you do. Our family prays for the kids' family members still in Poland and for all the children still in the Polish orphanages.

Thanks to all of you for your comments! We are so excited about the opportunities the Lord is giving Derek to speak on adoption. There's going to be an adoption revolution rising up! We are so excited and encouraged by your hearts and so thankful for your prayers and support!
Hugs to you all!
