For a native speaker of English his mother tongue is an obvious and natural thing. And yet, in many ways, it can become a special tool of God's grace. The book is an account of a unique mission through the English language.Christians from English speaking countries, who desired to do something useful for God, and were interested in wider world, followed the call to come to Poland and serve as short-term missionaries or teachers of English. The reader will get a glimpse of Poland during turbulent but exciting years of its history (the 1980s and 1990s). The story shows how teaching and learning English, first at camps and then at Wroclaw Language School quite naturally brought strangers together, broke down barriers and built relationships in which God touched dozens and dozens of lives. First-hand description of events, people's stories and testimonies make the account real and alive. Ruth Kowalczuk is a retired lecturer of English at the School of Economics in Wroclaw, Poland and holds an MA degree in American Literature from the Warsaw University. She translated into Polish parts of New Testament Commentaries by William Barclay and "Seven Deadly Sins" by Billy Graham. She is the author of a book "The Adult Sunday School" (Zborowa Szkola Biblijna) and was a pioneer in setting up the Adult Sunday School in Wroclaw Baptist Church and in other churches. Ruth Kowalczuk was an initiator and leader of English language evangelistic camps ministry in Poland in the 1980s. She is a founder of Wroclaw Language School affiliated with the First Baptist Church and served as its Director in 1989 - 1997. For over a decade she has been a co-leader of a school related ecumenical ministry among women. Sheis a mother of an adult son who is a journalist.
