Ken and Giselle Herweynen
Are Australians who were called by God to serve Him in Poland since 1991. They had been serving as missionaries in Germany for the 4 years prior, and shortly after the fall of communism they entered Poland to live as a family in a caravan with their 3 young sons (Stephen, Ryan and Richard) using a double-decker bus for a mobile evangelistic Ministry into many of the towns and villages. Because of the growing number of converts and the need for discipleship, in 1992 the Lord inspired the founding of Elim Christian Center, and soon after Elim’s establishment, the Lord also began a Church in 1993. During their time in Poland they have also welcomed the birth of Katie and Sarah.
Ken has continued to serve as the director of the Elim Mission and the senior pastor of the Bethel Baptist Church, with his wife as his help-meet.
The Herweynen’s 5 children are now grown, (ages 18 – 28 yrs) with 4 of them living back in Australia, and the youngest finishing her home-schooling. Two sons are married, and the 3rd has a lovely Christian girlfriend.
Thank you so much for the love, prayer, support and encouragement for this family through so many grateful years of ministry! They truly feel blessed to have experienced God’s amazing graciousness.
