Hi Everyone...

My name Jody Winchester and I work and live in Slovakia. I have been a missionary for the past 27 years using my gifts and talents to serve the Lord in this beautiful far away country. 

The reason I decided to come to Slovakia
In 1992 I was asked to join a team from my church on a short 2-week missions trip to Czechoslovakia. We were part of a larger American team from our church in America. The original plan was to only go to Prague and visit a few high schools and hold evangelistic meetings in Prague. And after the first week of successful ministry, Czech and Slovak pastors decided to send all of the American teams to minister in smaller cities and towns throughout Czechoslovakia. My team was sent to a place called Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia.
Slovakia impacted me in a huge way. People were so kind and loving, and seemed to be open to the Gospel. So, after visiting a few high schools and holding evening evangelistic meetings where I sang (and played the guitar) I really saw a huge opportunity to win souls for Jesus. I seriously prayed and felt the Lord leading me to return the next summer (1993) to Slovakia... 

Current ministry in Slovakia
Today I am currently involved in music ministry at church (Milost.sk) and I teach English as a second language. Wow.... and what a ride it's been. :)
Teaching allows me to tell many about the Lord and of course, I stil sing and do outreach concerts in Slovakia (Czechia) and recently in Norway. 
My church, Milost Krestanske Spolocenstvo (Grace Christian Fellowship) has enormously impacted my life and caused me grow spiritually. 

What the funds will be used for 
The main reason I am raising funds is for a visit home. It has been about 6 years since my last visit home and I would like to take a break and see family and friends PLUS attend my 40th high school reunion which will take place in early October.  :) 
The money raised will cover travel expenses and general expenses like rent and monthly bills for a one month visit home.
(I do not receive support from America and must live off of the income of teaching.)

Many Thanks
I ask you to consider donating to my campaign MISSION SLOVAKIA. It is not only so I can go home, but also for the continuation of the Gospel in Slovakia.... Thank you so much and....

God bless you!

Dear Family and Friends,

First I would like to thank everyone for your generosity and for your prayers. In fact prayers are more important and open the doors for victory. So, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I really do appreciate your thoughts of me and supporting me through MISSION SLOVAKIA. Praise the Lord for that!

I apologize for not updating and keeping you in the loop! I have been extremely busy and have not taken the time to sit down and write all of you an update.I am still in Slovakia.

My original plan was to get home by the 10th of October for my high school reunion. I didn't make the reunion (and it was my own fault). I waited to long to confirm my We Pay account – I actually forgot my password, and did not have a current phone number for two-step verification. This complicated everything and by the time I got it all worked out it was too late to get a ticket home. So, I decided to go at a later date. :) And that date is still up in the air, so for those of you who want to meet up on the west coast I will be in touch with you.

If you have any more questions or suggestions on when to come home, please message me on FB. ;)

The campaign is a success (THANK YOU JESUS!) and I will let it run for a bit just in case someone wants to bless this ministry further. I have many dreams and goals and, despite my age, am NOT slowing down.

I want to ask you to please remember me and my not yet born-again friends, students, and people I have an opportunity to talk with every day in your prayers.

May the Lord truly bless you,

Jody
