Serving the Lord
in the Czech Republic

News from Peter and Lucy Hoffmann

With the start of the new year, winter is becoming more and more visible in Olomouc.


The end of our first year deployed in Olomouc, Czech Republic

After taking numerous months for orientation, training, raising support and the Czech visa process, on January 12, 2019 we were deployed in the field.  The first year in Olomouc has been an experience that we shall never forget.  Our prayer is that the relationships that are being made will continue and expand into an eventual church plant.  We are also happy to announce that Pastor Pietak, from the Silesian Church, will be coming to Olomouc as a part-time pastor.  The need is great and the harvest is ready!  For more details about Pastor Pietak, click on the red button below. 




We recently got to check out the local clinic when Lucy had some minor surgery done on her feet.  We discovered that this place was a good place for the possibility of hanging our Paint Fest paintings depicting the Garden of Eden.  This could also be a place that the medical students in our Silesian Church outreach team could pursue relationships to share the Gospel message.



Please Pray for:

* More full-time Lutheran pastors to fill empty churches throughout the world
* Missionary, Ben Helge, and his work in Silesia
* Pastor Pietak, from the Silesian Church, that he will be accepted by the people of Olomouc
* A place to worship, study the Bible and fellowship in Olomouc
* World peace and justice
* The Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the people of Olomouc to accept and spread the Gospel message
* Our Silesian Church outreach team, that they will be more bold and confident in sharing the Gospel and discipleship 


Give thanks for:

* Pastor Pietak coming to Olomouc as a part-time Lutheran pastor
* Wisdom, strength and health
* Pastor Kastor, who provides communion once a month
* All the Churches and individuals that are supporting us in our mission
* All the relationships we have made in Olomouc
* The Holy Trinity
