Welcome to the 2018 Malone Poland Service Learning Team (PSLiT) Blog Site!!!

My name is Dr. David Entwistle. Dr. Greg Miller and I are leading the 2018 Malone Poland Service Learning Team (PSLiT). We are excited to have a really solid group of people on our team: Christina, Dominick, George, Julia, Leah, Olivia, and Tori. I have been to Poland about a dozen times since first going there in 2005. The first Malone team worked with some Canadian missionaries that I had met at the church I attended, and that connection led to other connections with Polish church leaders and a University in Warsaw where I had the privilege of being a visiting professor.
Our team this year will work with my good friend, Daniel, who is the pastor of a Polish church, Kościół Chrystusowy w RP, in Sosnowiec, Poland. We anticipate that we will help with painting and perhaps some small construction projects at the church, as well as helping a local English teacher so that her students can practice conversational English with native English speakers. We will also return to the University…
