God gave us the ultimate reason for celebration, the gift of Salvation through the birth and death of his Son. There are so many ways to celebrate Christmas that we are celebrating all month long!

Our training sessions went very well last month we had over 70 people in attendance and we are excited to get started. The kids from our church are hard at work practicing for the Christmas play that they will put on for the children attending our OCC program next week. Our church plant in Virovitica is hosting a program next week for over 60 children. They were able to work in cooperation with Social Services which recommended their program to families in need. At the end of these programs we will distribute the shoebox gifts that were so lovingly packaged by many around the world. To all of you who have taken the time to package shoebox gifts, THANK YOU! Your time, finances, love and prayers truly make a difference.

Our church was given two time slots to perform on the main square of Zagreb again this year. Our daughter, Vjera, will be putting on a concert tomorrow night and our worship band will be performing next Wednesday. It’s a wonderful thing to hear the praises of God ring out in the main square of our capital city. 

Mario’s book arrived from the press today! He is so excited to be able to finally share his book with others and will be hosting a book launch on Friday. This is the culmination of a 5 year project and he genuinely hopes that his book, “Our Daily Money”, will be a tool (a book not just to read but also set up to be used as a teaching tool with questions for small group discussion) that will help many in our country.

To those of you who invested in this project, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for seeing the value of investing in something that we believe will impact future generations.

As you may have seen on Facebook or Instagram, our worship band, No Compromise, released their single, Beloved One, last week. It is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Deezer and about 200 other platforms. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this single and their upcoming album, “Enter into Your Victory”, goes toward the purchase of our church facility.

As most of you are aware, our church has been attempting to purchase the facility we are currently meeting in. We have been offered such an amazing price for the facility that the banks were amazed when they saw the asking price. Having already moved three times as a church, we are really hoping for a permanent place to call home. It would not only give us stability but clout with the people around us (the mindset of our culture would see our church as a serious “institution” not as a cult). We also see this step as an investment for the generations to come after us. Thank you all for your prayerful consideration in regard to this project. We are believing God for a true miracle as we enter into our victory! And don’t forget to check out No Compromise’s single on iTunes!

Our family is doing well and our kids are looking forward to the holidays. They will be going with their youth group to winter camp and are really looking forward to it (mom and dad are exited as well about getting some alone time!)

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support. We are so grateful to each of you for all that you do. May the Lord richly bless you this holiday season. Merry Christmas and a very blessed 2020!
