Greetings from sunny Niš!
Kids are out of school, the heat has come, and camps have begun—it’s summer! That means between vacations and camps, fewer people are in town and attendance is lower at the church activities. Pray that we can motivate everyone to focus on their walk with God, loving Him and loving others, privately, in their families, at their jobs, and wherever the summer season takes them.
Both the church picnic and the baptism last month went very well. They were sweet times of fellowship and we thank God for His blessings. Toby loved running around the pool after the baptism, dipping his feet in the water, and splashing the swimming teens. There should be another baptism later this year. Pray the believers continue to grow spiritually and have joy in the Lord’s presence.
The Tuesday night women’s Bible study is about to finish studying Daniel before we take a break for the rest of the summer. We’ve all been encouraged from learning more about God and His sovereignty, and from the lives of His faithfully obedient servants. Pray the ladies still have fellowship together during the summer break. Pray also for several of the ladies who haven’t been able to come recently. Pray God heals Vida’s hip and back, and helps protect her from worries over her finances and her daughter who is alone in the USA. Pray God helps Marijana to understand the gospel, and watches over the health of her grandchildren and daughters.
Pray for the camps to be used by God for His glory. May He keep everyone safe, the lost hear the gospel, with many accepting the truth, and the believers being strengthened in their faith. We are again attaching the calendar of camps that we know about in the region.
Once again we have provided a calendar, and we apologize that we are sending it out on the second day. Of course, any day of the month, you can pray for more than one request. 🙂
Blessings & Peace,
Ethan, Jan, & Toby
