Dear Friends,

Yesterday, Ethan and I received our visa for Serbia! We’re so thankful to God and to you for praying for us. The police inspectors finally decided that we should get our visas from the office in the city, Niš, where we will live most of the year (except when we’re at camp.) The inspector, Jelena, was so nice and helpful. We were extremely blessed to have her for our case, and even look forward to seeing her again in October to start the paperwork for our next visa. This first visa, by law, could only be for 6 months, but the next one ought to be for a full year. God is so good.

Because we had to return to Niš for the visa, we missed the last day of the Roma Children’s Camp, and the first 3 days of the Roma Teenagers Camp. We’re happy to be at camp again, and the teachers have only good things to share about this new group of campers. Pray for the 21 teens here to have a life-changing meeting with the Lord Jesus Christ. Some cannot read, most have difficult life situations, and without God their futures will be dark. Pray God opens their eyes and hearts to the light of His wonderful Word.

To God be all the glory, honour, and praise!

Jan and Ethan
