Ministry Description

In the Czech Republic, Word of Life (WOL) is focused on youth ministry. They do after school programs, winter and summer camps, youth groups, and more. I will be working in that ministry as an intern, helping out wherever needed. I will also be building connections with some Deaf ministries that are in Brno (BER-no), about 20 minutes from the WOL base. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to work in both Word of Life ministry and Deaf ministry. At this point, I don’t know what day to day will look like, but I am excited to see what doors God opens for ministry in the Czech Republic!![/fusion_text][/fullwidth][fullwidth backgroundcolor=”” backgroundimage=”http://missionaries.wordoflife.cz/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Prayer-Card_Halik-2016_wood-background_horizontal-25.jpg” backgroundrepeat=”no-repeat” backgroundposition=”left top” backgroundattachment=”scroll” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_preview_image=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_opacity=”0.5″ video_mute=”yes” video_loop=”yes” fade=”no” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderstyle=”solid” paddingtop=”20px” paddingbottom=”15px” paddingleft=”40px” paddingright=”40px” menu_anchor=”” equal_height_columns=”no” hundred_percent=”no” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7

My Story

[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single|dashed” top_margin=”10″ bottom_margin=”10″ sep_color=”#ffffff” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]I grew up in a Christian household, attending church and hearing the Gospel on a regular basis. I remember praying a simple prayer when I was seven, mostly because I didn’t want to go to hell. As I grew older, I struggled with assurance of my salvation because I don’t remember the exact day and I don’t remember what i said. I felt like maybe I didn’t mean the prayer, that maybe I wasn’t really saved. I fought the insecurity by searching the Bible for assurance. I read John 10:28-29, “And I (Jesus) give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.” I realized that I didn’t need to know the exact day, I simply needed to trust that the Lord has saved me and will not let me go. It was so comforting to me! I realize over and over again that my salvation is not conditional on me at all!

At the age of 14, I felt God’s call into the ministry. This was really when I began seeking a closer relationship with the Lord, and began to think about “what I wanted to be when I grew up”. I knew I would be in full time ministry, I just didn’t know where. I applied to Word of Life Bible Institute (WOLBI) my senior year of high school and about the same time began American Sign Language classes at community college. It was March of my senior year (2014) that I was both accepted to WOLBI and was burdened for the Deaf community. I fell in love with their culture and their language and I was saddened to know that many of them have not had a chance to understand the Gospel.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]First year at the Bible Institute (BI) was full of growth for me. I learned what Christian community looked like and I learned what it meant to have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. I still didn’t know where I wanted to be permanently, so I began pursuing second year.

Second year is all about ministry. About being in ministry, living and working with others in ministry, ministry principles that work wherever you are. Part of the second year program is a class called Missions Reality. We raise support in the fall and then take a ten day trip in April to a different country. I went to Guatemala. It was an intense ministry opportunity, and I loved every minute of it. My favorite day was when we went up to the mountains in Coban to a Mayan village. We were praying that we would be able to connect with these people, because they don’t speak Spanish and none of our team spoke Mayan. There was a little deaf girl up there and she cold barely communicate. But it was s sweet to play with her and even though we shared no words, we shared God’s love to that little girl. She changed my heart for world missions. I want to travel wherever the Lord calls, ministering to the Deaf community. My long term goal is to start the Word of Life Deaf Ministry.[/fusion_text][/one_half][/fullwidth][fullwidth backgroundcolor=”#ffffff” backgroundimage=”” backgroundrepeat=”no-repeat” backgroundposition=”left top” backgroundattachment=”scroll” video_webm=”” video_mp4=”” video_ogv=”” video_preview_image=”” overlay_color=”” overlay_opacity=”0.5″ video_mute=”yes” video_loop=”yes” fade=”no” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderstyle=”solid” paddingtop=”20px” paddingbottom=”20px” paddingleft=”40px” paddingright=”40px” menu_anchor=”” equal_height_columns=”no” hundred_percent=”no” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Our Mission Field

God has placed a passion in our hearts to reach youth in the Czech Republic with the Gospel of Jesus ChristWe are based in or near a small village called Cerna Hora, located 2.5 hours southeast of Prague, where Word of Life Ministries has their home office and camp site. Because of the nature of this ministry, we are work a lot in the surrounding communities, travel all over the country and sometimes even into parts of Slovakia.

Support

We have a need for churches and people that would join us in ministry by prayer and financial support. Without a team supporting us, we cannot do ministry in the Czech Republic. We have stepped out in faith and are trusting God to provide us with the support necessary to have such a ministry.
