A few weeks ago we had one of the biggest problems with our bus ministry that we've ever had. Bro. Sam and I took two vans out to a village called Trnovec. When we got there we saw a mob of children running toward the vans. There had to have been about 70 kids there, and we only had places for 18. We packed what we could in the vans, and we're heartbroken because of all the kids left behind. We began to pray fervently for God to do something about this need. I told the people to pray that God would give us a place close to the village or better still in the village. We were willing to rent something, though we had no idea how we could afford another building.
That week one of our men said he had a cousin in the village who had a building and would probably rent it to us. We set up a time to meet, and were surprised when we learned that this man was saved several years ago. He said we could use his place and the rent would be nothing. He wanted to help spread God's Word to his people.
Last Sunday we had our very first meeting there, and God really blessed. I was told there were over 100 that showed up. We had a program for the kids and I preached about Jesus! We took many pictures and they are here for you to enjoy!
Next to me you will see Bro. Dean. He came and translated me into Gypsy. I preached in Croatia and he put it all in Gypsy.
Tori is talking to many of these woman. Most of them were surprised that she would talk to them.
No I'm not trying to lay hands on anyone. I'm praying and trying to get the kids quite at the same time.
Please pray for the Gypsies of Croatia. These people
are in a cycle of poverty and alcoholism. They desperately need the life
changing reality of Jesus. Please pray that we can get a strong hold in at least
one of these villages. Pray that God will use Bro. Deon and he will stand strong
against the devil and will grow and be used. We have high hops that Bro. Deon
may be the Gypsy pastor we have been waiting so long for.
