June 2018

"Pop, pop, pop like a star! Put your hands in the air. He's like a shinning star; we should praise him!"

Lyrics of a song written and preformed by our 10 year old daughter, Vjera, rang throughout Lake Jarun as people milled about eating hotdogs and hamburgers, watched their kids play, and enjoyed the concerts during Jarunfest. 1,500 hamburgers, hotdogs, and Gospel tracts were handed out to those visiting and passing by; the Gospel message was clearly delivered by various pastors, evangelists, and/or worship leaders before each concert and God provided us not only with finances, but also with a wonderful sunny day. This year's festival was yet another wonderful success. If you would like to see parts of the festival first hand, Bonnie has several video clips from the day on her Facebook wall.


Our teen summer camp begins next week. This is a first for our church, since it was founded basically when 95% of the church was teen or college age. Now that we are grown, married, and have teen age children of our own; we concluded that it is time for us to host a camp for them ourselves. Our teens need a place to go, have a good time with other teens their age, and most importantly- encounter God! It's amazing how, at camp, night after night the presence of God builds and becomes stronger. Bonnie clearly remembers her experiences at camp as a teenager, and can testify to the fact that some of the most important decisions she made for God were made at camp. Please, be in prayer for our teens and their leaders, Daniel and Gris Behin. We are praying that God moves mightily in their midst next week.

As soon as our teens arrive home from camp, VBS begins. Once again, a Korean Church from the US will be travelling to Croatia to lead our VBS. Our children fell in love with them last year, and are so excited that they are returning again this year. Please, be in prayer with us. Vacation Bible School is a brand new concept for Croatia. Our church is in a large residential area which is ideal for hosting a VBS and we consider it to be an excellent outreach tool, however, it is still difficult to overcome certain barriers, and gain trust from families in this neighborhood.

As we've mentioned in previous letters, Mario will be travelling to the States from June 28th to August 30th. His purpose for making this trip is to encourage the Church in the United States, meet with and encourage those who are currently supporting us, and to further our networking base (meet new pastors and leaders with whom we can fellowship and collaborate).
