Dear Friends!

This is a warm invitation to come for the 22nd Congress of Australian Adventist Polonia. The goal will be to find, in ourselves, bonds with Jesus, as well as some ties with Poland, its culture and language. This is the reason our motto for this year’s Congress is:  ‟Always Together With Jesus”

Here’s a question. Can you imagine Congress without music and singing? Surely not! We have a cordial request to all musicians of all churches, to prepare some songs and musical items to praise the Lord. Whatever we are going to do, we should ‟always be together”. Attached is also a form from the music team if you wish to participate and perform at Congress. Please fill out the form as soon as you can, so we can begin organizing and placing performers into our schedule.
Alternatively you may distribute this music form at your local church and send the completed version to congres.music@gmail.com

Dear Friends! Please do not be too slow with your response and plans to come. It’ll help the organisers a lot in the preparations. About the detailed program, I’ll include that in the next letter. All information about the Congress you can also find on our church website: www.dandypolish.org.au as well as on our Facebook page: Dandenong Adventist. There you will also soon find the forms.

As I think about our motto — ‟Always Together With Jesus”, I realise that fellowship with Him, was always treasured by those who experienced it. Ap. John is impressed by and proud of this fellowship (1 John 1:3). He writes, quoting Lord Jesus in his Gospel (15:27), that this fellowship or closeness with Him, enables us to share the testimony about Him. And this is the reason to be with Jesus.

Waiting for your responses! I wish you blessings from the Lord and already look forward to meet you during the Congress.

Your brother in Christ,
Pastor Roman Chalupka
