OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Having worked toward the OCC projects for almost six months, it was amazing to see the fulfilment of these projects. Our church was personally involved in two events - in our home church in Zagreb and in our church plant in Virovitica (in east Croatia).
In Virovitica our church plant was given the opportunity to work together with Social Services. The owner of a café in town gave them use of his café at no charge, and they were asked to give an interview on the radio. The children were so grateful for what they’d been given and, in several instances, had received exactly what they had been wanting and needing. It was an amazing opportunity for that work to share the love of Christ with those who had never heard the Gospel, and it will be exciting to see the results of seeds planted there.
In our home church in Zagreb we had about 80 children in attendance. It was so much fun to watch the children excitedly open their gifts and squeal with joy over what they received. We invited each one to a 13-week club on Wednesday evenings. This past Wednesday we had new children in attendance, and their parents accompanied them as well! We are so grateful to God for this opportunity to share the Gospel. Please, be in prayer with us for these new souls to be drawn to Christ.
