And … we’re done. Yesterday was the last event for our summer team outreaches. We held Day 3 of the festival in Slavonski Brod which was games and time to sign t-shirts, take pictures and give lots of hugs. Thank you for praying for this outreach. We’re thankful that the weather was great, the kids […]
Thank you for praying for Day 2 of the Bible festival. We’re grateful to the Lord for answered prayer. We had a good turnout–I’d guess there were about 75 kids and about 10 or so mothers. Our theme was forgiveness as we acted out the parable of the unforgiving servant from Matthew 18:21-35 (a very […]

We thank the Lord for a good first day. Please pray for […]

Thank you for praying for our third day in the Roma village in Sisak. Today’s lesson was on the Good Samaritan. Through the skit, application explanation, craft, coloring and activity pages, we pray that the children understood the important Biblical principle of “love one another”.
Smiles and waves greet us as we drive into the Roma village near Sisak. About 100 children converge on the open field at the back of the village and after we set up the sun shades and tarps for them to sit on, the kids join us in singing: “Our God is so big, He […]
