"give an account of thy stewardship"

luk. 16:2

"Steward" - "Emploee in a large family, or on a large estate"

Webster's Dictio

nary.

For many years we are employed by the largest family of Children of God

the

Church and our ministry is entrusted to us by the church on a large estate - the

world.

Jesus said: "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel

to

every

creature" Mark 16:15.

Dear Friends, You entrusted


provide us with prayers and
lingly during the past year
Now in the begining of this

into our hands the ministry of reconciliation and you


finaces. Over S 100,000.00 you gave gladly and wil
and we thank you and God for it.
new 1980 year we want to give an account of our ste-

warsdhip:
We all were
and are engaged in the great ministry of preaching the precious
Gospel from the pulpits, in homes, through radio and cassett ministry, publica -

tions, distribution of Bibles and New Testaments, letters anri hospitality.


Last year we preached in over 100 churches in America and Poland, hold 20

Faith

Promise Rallies, preached to Slavic people in Baltimore.

Twice a week the Gospel is beamed through powerful station in Europe to Poland
and other countries in Europe. Hundreds of letters with requests for Bibles, N. T.
song books and other Christian literature and with questions about salvation
were received by us here. All those letters were answered and requests fulfilled.
Also a new poem book^ Life of Christ and Book of Acts, Vis. were published. One
new book "The Harmony of Science and the Scripture" and one pamphlet "What Cured
Naaman's Leprosy?" were translated and will be published this year.
Hundreds of cassetts with messages in Word and music were prepared and sent
to
Poland.

Our other ministry is through preachers and workers inPoland: 20 full time prea
chers and 10 part time workers were suported financially and provided with nece
ssary materials. Past summer one church and one mission place were opened. Over
S 10,000 were sent for church buildings and repairs. Many churches reported bap
tismal services- souls were saved and added to the Kingdom.

Christian Service Camp was a great success last year - 30 souls accepted Christ
there. A new kitchen and dining hall are greatly needed, so again we contributed
S 4,000 to buy building material. The work* will start in the spring by free labor
of preachers and members of the congregations.
Our ministers in Poland do also the follcw-up work with radio listeners.
We thank God for all of you, who are co-laborers with us.

We are looking forward


to be your emploees for this year of 1980 again. Please continue to pray aiid su
pport us. Inflation is visible everywhere but we do not dare to slack in the Lord's
work because sin increases and satan endangers every soul, but the Lord is on our

side and with your prayers and support we will achieve many victories for the glo

ry of God.

bless you richly!

MEN

Attending National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Washington, D.C. last


January I was impressed with the message entitled "Forgotten Men".
The speaker developed his theme around those who were gathered - the religious
broadcasters - men who sit behind the microphones. People hear their message
but they do not think about the mess anger.
How true that is. But it concerns not only the broadcasters. We can say
the
same about Christian writers, translators, poets, compor.ers
People read and demand good articles, listen to messages in song or in
word
and judge them by their contest but how seldom they think about the messanger,
the one who puts his whole heart into the ministry!
But we thank God that we are not forgotten by God's people, who pray constant
ly for us and the work we do, who are concerned about our wellbeing and share
with us the blessings of lifeNot only your gifts toward our work speak loudly about your love,
but your
prayers, your words of encouragement expressed in your letters, your interest
in us and the message we preach.
You remember also those faithful preachers in Poland who preach and win souls
for Christ because of your love.

We seldom write in our

.nev;sletters about ourselves. We report about the work

we do.

But this time I would like to say few words about Bro. Winnik. He came to this
country 13 years ago at the age of 59 to work with us. For 13 years
this
faithful servant worked dilligently, many times not noticed by many of us.
He had three heart attacks, but every tiic.^ soon after recovery he was back at

work preparing radio messages, cassettes, answering letters, packing and sen
ding out literature.

Januaiy 30 th

Bro. Winnik was hospitalized again, 2 days later - in intensi-

ve care.

When I saw hu him Feb 1st I thought we lost Bro. Winnik for good. We

prayed like never before individually and as the church,and now there is
that Bro.

hope

Winnik will retur.n and work with us again /of course with a much ea

sier load/.

We ask you to pray for Bro.Winnik that the Lord will restore his health and that

his smiling face will bring joy to many of us as he preaches the Word, especially
through the cassette ministry, so that many souls in Poland will accept Lord Jezus
as their personal Saviour.

Once more we thank yuo that although we are forgotten by this world, we are not
forgotten by YOU!

FROM

THE

FIELDS

POLAND:

"Dear Bro. Bajko. We thank God for the new house of worship. Having our own pla
ce we have more activities: special meetings, revivals, youth groups, etc.
We thank God that we had several baptismal services in 1980 - 10 souls were added

by the Lord to the Church, all of them young people.

We still remeber your last visit in our church, your preaching and fellowship.We
wish you God*s blessing in your work. Please remeirfjer us in your prayers. P.N."
Warszawa.

"Dear Brethren. In few words we would like to inform you that we all are well.
I would like to thank you, for the gift which I received just before Christmas.
In our Church in Warsaw we experience spiritual revival. Young souls accept Lord
Jesus Christ and are baptized into Christ. Ourmission place in Jak. will become
an independent congregation with own preacher, Erwin Karz.
Also there is enough of people in the district of Brudna to organize a church, but
they do not have a place where to worship. Presently they meet in the house of
the deacon Br. Wl. J. Please pray for all of us and help us to get the place of

worship in Brudna. We thank you for your help in spreading the Gospel in Poland
and your vital interest in our work. Yours W.W"

Bielsk Podlaski

"Dear Bro. and Sister Bajko. We greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We thank you for your good heart that you sent us already second time the medi cine which is needed for my very sick wife.

We thank you also for your support through the years. Although I am already
tired from active ministry, still I can visit people, play cassettes which

re
are

sent by Bro. Winnik and witness about Lord Jesus Christ.

Myself and ny wife are both very weak and hurting, and we are looking forward to
that Place where there is no sickness, no pain, no tears, no old age. We
thank
God that He gave us abundant life of service for Him. Vours, T.L."

NIGERIA

"Beloved in the Lord. Greetings in the name of that only Lord and Saviour the
Lord Jesus Christ. I was in Poland last year. There I saw some inspirational
songs in Polish language translated and published by you. I took down
your
address and decided to write to you. The intention is that you may sent me the
English version of these song books. Yours, Mr. and Mrs. J.O."
GERMANY

"Beloved in Christ. I have two copies of your songbooks "One Song" and Heaven
ly Sunshine"

I would like to heve the next copies. There are such beautiful

songs which touch our hearts. Thank you for your ministry and may the

Lord

bless you. J.B."


ENGLAND

"Beloved in Christ. Thank you very much for sending us regularly "Drogowskaz The Guidepost". I am confident that the Lord will help you to fulfill this great
service faithfully especially in these perilous times. I am happy that "Drogo
wskaz - The Guidepost" is not involved in criticising and condemning others but
brings us God's truth . I can give this magazine without fear to others. May the
Lord lead you by His Spirit

that all what you do be according His will. H.K."

RADIO LISTENER

"I do not know how to begin writing this letter to you. I was not interested in
religion and this subject was far away from ray mind, and I was under the influ

ence of other teachings. The other day, when we were having dinner, my son, age
five, put a question to me: "How do we go to heaven?" and "What is God?" I did
not know what to tell him and he repeated these questions a few times. I think

there will be more of these questions in the future. On 29th of April, when
I
put the radio on shortwave, your program was on and the message was about
God
and heaven. I listened to the end because I had never heard before such an inte -

resting subject. From that time I regularly listen to this program twice a week
and you are convincing me that I shoud change my views about ny life. Ify wife,
son and I listen to your program together and we are very grateful for it.
I
would like to ask you if it is possible to send me some literature also, if pos
sible, please send me the Holy Scripture because it is difficult to get it
in
our town. Lately I spoke to my friend and mentioned to him about this program
and he told me he had listened to it for a long time and he had got a small Bi
ble from you. I would willingly pay for one but how can I? and where? I shall
be waiting for a letter from you. B.W."

Friends:

Savior..."

The world is full of problems: unrest, frustration, terrorism, etc. There is


no good news in the world today. But in times like these people
need
one
thing - salvation and Savior.

We thank God that through you we can bring the Gospel - the Good News from God
to many people who find peace and joy in our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ.

In this newsletter we want to share with you Good News which we carry every day
through our preachers in Poland, through publications. Bibles and Radio minis
try.

First we would like to share with you the excerpts from a letter of a young
preacher in Poland.

"Dear Bvo. Bajko. The time flies so fast. We are very busy. In addition
to
my duties as the minister in K. I lead Winter Retreat for our Youth, had seve~
ral Revival meetings, visited radio listeners and took part in recording songs
for your radio programs.

I thank you for your prayers and help which enables us to preach the Gospel
without worry cibout our physical needs. We also thank you for gifts send to
us for renovation of our chapel where we plan to move by the end of this sum
mer.

The last few days I was very busy with one of our prospects who became very
ill - cancer. It took lots of effort to locate him in a hospital. His situation
from human standpoint is hopeless, but God can do everything. Please pray to
gether with us for him and especially for his family. He is very close to the
truth but his wife and two daughters are not so close and may harden their
hearts against God. But we believe that God can change their hearts.

in my soul. I cannot explain by this letter but I could say the Lord is spea king to me in every program and as you mentioned in your last message, I would
like to put
soul right with God. I understand that religion is not all but
I need Christ. Please write to me personally. S.K."

RADIO MINISTRY

George and Vexa Bajenski

Dear Christian Friends, we would like to share with you a word or two about our

life

and our work, and to express our deepest appreciation for all your prayexs

and financial support in our ministry.


In these difficult and unsettled times, Poland continues to be one of the

few

countries in this world where the preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus

Christ, through radio, is producing very effective results. New souls are being
saved, and new churches are being established, and all of this is possible

be

cause of the faithfulness of many who love and care for the Truth.

As you have already been informed, as of January of this year, all the respon -

sibility of our Polish Radio Ministry is resting on my shoulders. I do thank


God for this privilege of preaching, singing, recording, and writing about Him
for His glory! Brother Winnik, to whom God has restored better health from

recent illness, is working with a cassette ministry, and other activities,


much as the Lord is giving him strength. Thus, our radio ministry continues
bring'joy, peace, and salvation to many.

his

as
to

Please do continue to uphold us in your prayers.

With God*s help we are trying to expand our ministry by adding new types of ra
dio programs. We have started producing a new program called, "The Gospel pre
sented in Song." Presently once a month this program takes place of our regular
weekly broadcast, but in the future, as funds permit, we would like to

have it

broadcasted more often. We develop this program by using several hymns or gospel
songs, which are supported with appropriate Bible verses, short comments, some
interesting story as to how the song was written, or the personal testimony of
the author and composer. This way the Gospel is being effectively presented
through the outreach of music. Slavic people, as you know, are very sensitive to
music, and we pray that these programs will reach the hearts of many.
At this time I would like to leave with you one request. We have a need, and an
opportunity to reach people in Poland with the Gospel through music. Recorded

Christian music is not readily available in Poland, but we receive many letters
requesting, if it is possible, to send some good religious music on tape or re
cords. We would like to answer these requests, and at the same time build up a
music reference library for our radio programs. If you have some new or
used
misical records that you would like to contribute to our Polish ministry,
we
would make good use of them. Appropriate songs or musical numbers would be used

for our radio programs, and some records would be sent to our many friends

in

Poland who are asking for Christian music. This music can be vocal or instrumen

tal, gospel or much enjoyed spiritual sacred music. You may send it to our
address:

Just one more piece of information from our personal life and future plans.Du
ring the last three years of our life and service here in Maryland, we have de
veloped in our family some health problems - respiratory difficulties such
as
allergies and asthua. As time is passing, we see that these health problems are
progressively getting worse, therefore, after consulting with our doctors, dis

cussing this with our Mission Committee, and above all, after much prayer
have started to look into the possibility of relocation from Maryland to
other more acceptable climate, from where we would be able to continue our

we
some
Po

lish Radio ministry.

Please remember us in this special way in your prayers, as we are seeking God*s
guidance. We will be informing you in our future letters of all developments.
Yours, in His service. George and Vera Bajenski

WHAT A summer!
July

15th after an

11 hours

long flight we

landed in Honolulu

where we attended the World Convention of Churches of Christ.

It was a very good convention with lots of good preaching by Bro. F. D. Hag
gard, R.F. Blowers, Th. Benjamim, E. LeRoy Lawson and many others.
There was great congregational singing and very good numbers by many choirs
and the Brass Ensemble from Ozark Bible College.

Very impresive was the final service with the Lord*s Supper led by Bro. A.
W. Lee, general secretary of the Convention. I prayed for the cup in Polish
and English.
While in Hawaii we took one week of vacation - the only week this year.
We returned home July 29.

In two days I maneged to look through the corres

pondence, answered the most important letters, Dela did the laundry and

Friday Audust 1st, on my birthday, we were on our way to North Carolina for
the wedding of our son, George, who was married to a lovely girl August 2nd.
After the wedding we immediately drove back and arrived home at 2 AM, and by
9 AM I was already in the Boulevard Christian Church in Baltimore where
I
talked during the Sunday School about our Polish ministry and preached du
ring the worship hour.
Another two hectic days and August 6th we were on our way to Poland.

There we were met by several Christian Friends and for 5 days attended semi
nars

for

teachers.

Sunday August 10 I preached at the Warsaw Church of Christ and we had


fellowship with many Christians.

August 15,

Ministers

29 preachers from all over Poland came to Warsaw to meet with me.

First we had a general meeting where we heard about the accomplishments, pro
blems and the Ostroda Project. Then I had individual conversation with each
minister which lasted till midnight.
Next day I went to Ostroda and Dela remained in Warsaw where she visited
ny homes.

In Ostroda I saw the progress of the camp-building. The work is slow


goes on. There I discussed the further progress of the building and
assured that by winter

will be under the roof.

It is a big structure, bigger than I expected.


The progress is slow because of lack of building material.
That day I also visited home for Senior Citizens in Ostroda, had fellowship

with Bro. Paul Wrobel and his family and then went to Olsztyn. Here I talked
with Bro. Kobus, minister of the local church, till 1 AM and then preached at
the morning service and late in the evening returned to Warsaw.
Next day August 18th early in the morningwe left Poland on our way back to the
U.S.A.

It was good to be back to our wonderful country of America.

5. Preachers are very grateful for support which they receive


through
the Department of Missions so they can preach the Gospel freely
without worrying about the support of their families.

Poland is open

for the Gospel and nobody is interfering with the preaching.

In Churches they have Sunday Schools for children. Youth meetings, revivals
and Rallies. They distribute literature freely.

Economy in Poland is in a bad shape. The summer was rainy and very cold with
many floods and crops are ruined. There is visible shortage of many things.
We have to come with more help to our Christian friends.
Despite all that our brethren in Poland try to raise over 100,000.00 Zloty
toward Ostroda Project but according my estimation they will be short of another 5-6 thousand dollars to finish the building in Ostroda.
We have to raise this ammount of money here and send them as soon as possib

AND FAMILY ARE MOVING TO CANADA

"Dear Christian Friends:

In the May newsletter we have shared with you our family's health problems and
a word about the possibility of re-location from Maryland to some other
more
acceptable climat, from where we could continue effectively or ministry.
Today we are happy to say that God has heard our prayers. After several
months of praying, waiting and consulting with our mission Committee, friends,
and the proper authorities we are moving as of September 1, 1980 from
Bel
Air, Md. to Toronto, Canada.

We believe that the different climat will help to diminish our health problems.
Concerning our continual Radio Ministry we will be able to work from Toronto
through Missionary Radio Ministries - one of our Christian Church mission,
which is specializing in radio work.

This will give us access to radio facilities and equipment and the assistance
of qualified technical personel. We are happy for this new development for
it will give us opportunity to expand and improve our Polish radio programs
and related ministries assisting in evengelism and church growth in Poland.
Dear Friends, we do appreciate all your help in prayers and finances, you
were so faithful and encouraging in the passed days and years. But now as we
look ahead, we ask you to continue to stay behind us in your prayers and fi
nancial support.
We do appreciate also very much the help and assistance of Brother and Sister

Bajko and Bro. Winnik during the past three years of our work here in Bel Air,
and we will continue to work in the future toward the upbuilding of the Lord's
Church in Poland.
