“My name is Jacek Duda. I’m the President of the Evangelical Christian Church in Poland – a federation of 33 churches.
Evangelical Christian Church in Poland has been blessed by faithful ministry of SOS through last 20 years. I have in mind Henry Jones’s (SOS’ President) visits to Poland in difficult eighties when Poland was a part of the communist system of Eastern Europe under political and military occupation of Soviet Union.
Henry Jones strengthened our leaders and local churches that time. He helped us also in gaining a church building in Warsaw, Polish capital, which is now the headquarters of our Federation.
I remember the year 2000, when SOS sent to Poland David Timmons (SOS Board Member) – a good preacher and teacher of the Word. I also have in mind two of Dr. Rich Frazer’s visit to Poland. In 2004 we organized some trips to strengthen church in Kielce – a very strong Roman-Catholic region of Poland; Rich taught all day during our Regional Conference in Piatkow. A good number of young people took part in this conference.
Thanks for your ministry.”
“I was privileged to travel under the auspices of SOS with Hank and Marjorie Jones to address several hundred German pastors in Berlin, Germany. It was an unforgettable experience as I witnessed God pour out His eternal principles into the thirsty souls of his humble servants.
The heart response of the pastors to what was offered was humbling to me as they soaked up the Word of God. Their hunger for and openness to the Word of God was so great that I could hardly wait for the next session to come.
I could only wish that every pastor or teacher might be afforded such an opportunity to see God work in the hearts of His servants. What a thrill it was to work with SOS in a ministry of outreach. After such a trip I knew that I would never be the same again.”
“The churches in America have had an important role to play in the history of Christian Mission in India. But the impact that they can have now can be much greater than ever before.
The most needed area for help we have is the building up of native leadership so they are equipped to accomplish the task the Lord has given to them.”
“Other missionaries scratch us all over. SOS International scratches us where we itch.”
“The Lord has used SOS International to challenge, encourage and inspire us to devote more to the leadership responsibility that the Lord has given us. Many pastors and church leaders have expressed their appreciation to the ministry of SOS International for finding such godly trainers and connecting them with local leaders in developing countries.”
“The Teachings were simple and down to earth and it made it very easy to understand and transfer. This is the reasons why many of the participants have taught it once or twice since they received it. They are passing it on to their co-workers.”
“On behalf of ONIM Ministerial and Leadership College we want to say a big thank you to SOS for your prayers, training and encouragement. We have also taken up the responsibility to reach other leaders in Ghana and other West African. Most of the pastors and leaders who have undergone this year’s training are also multiplying leaders in their various countries, regions and churches. We are ever ready to avail ourselves in training and building leaders for the expansion of the kingdom.”
“I’d like to say thank you to all the people who have been praying for Dr. Rich and for those of us here in Africa. And also the people who have been supporting SOS International. This is a great job that you have done for us here in Africa . This is a blessing to have people supporting the vision for training leadership. We have great needs here in Africa and especially in the area of Leadership. When we see a ministry like SOS International coming to train us here in Africa, it is such a great blessing.”
“The leadership in the Christian Church today has posed a lot of challenges because we discovered that the pulpit itself has been bastardized. The quality of Christian leadership is diminishing and we are worried.
Therefore we tried to seek people and organizations like SOS International to provoke the fire of leadership back into Christianity and I want to say with all humility that is has been a very wonderful time with the President of SOS International, Dr. Rich (Frazer). We have received quality teaching on leadership.
I could see excitement in the faces and comments of the ministers who came to the conference. We want to say that this is quite an opportunity and development that has left an indelible mark.
We are so grateful to SOS and we are looking forward to having a partnership with SOS and trusting God that SOS will give us an opportunity of sending us teachers like this, even next year, we so believe, that God will use SOS to teach us and to help us to move forward in our individual missions and ministries.”
