Why Poland? We have had a relationship with Marek and Marysia for years. I (Todd) had the honor of going over in 2006 to do some mission work. Marek comes out each year to visit and support his ministry. This year when we saw him he asked for our help in presenting our Marriage Retreat. We readily agreed to go in July of this year.
Marriages in Poland are much like those here in the states. However, due to the economy of Poland, many spouses are forced to seek work away from where they live and spend much time apart from each other. That is something Melissa and I know a great deal about as we spent several months away from each other when we first met. With God’s grace and your help we hope to give Polish couples some help with how we dealt with separation and some tips from our 26 years of marriage.
How can you help?
- Please pray. Pray for the couples that will attend and for God’s guidance as we prepare for this event
- Contribute financially – each couple will need $120.00 to attend the retreat. You can sponsor a couple for the full amount. You can also help defray some of the cost of our trip. Both can be done by clicking here and making a donation. When you get to the second donation screen type, “Poland Marriage Retreat” in the special instructions section.
