We have wonderful news!
On 3rd July Jaroslava gave birth to a baby boy. His name is Boris. We are thankful to God for such a great blessing. Also, we are very grateful to all those who encouraged us and pray for Jaroslava and me.
Serving in the church in Sremska Mitrovica and Establishing a new church in Ruma:
Over this last months I preached many times in Ruma and Sremska Mitrovica and prepared 12 people for baptism through a set of lectures.
On 18. July 14 new believers from Sremska Mitrovica, Ruma and Belgrade have been baptized in river Sava in Sremska Mitrovica. We are encouraged by seeing how Christ transformed the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ and hove He multiplies our Christian family.
Milan, one of the people who have been baptized said: “I am happy to leave behind my old life and all bad things. I trust that my future will be filled with good things!”
I’ve also been leading prayer meetings on Tuesdays in Sremska Mitrovica and helped the new believers from Ruma to become regular part of our prayer meetings.
Of course there is also a lot of work individual time spent with new believers – for example meeting with and spiritual counselling a lad who has been for five months in the process of drug rehabilitation.
A new Church building?
Unfortunately we could not reach the agreement with the owner of the house about renting the house for our church. However, not long after that we have been encouraged by the municipality officials to submit a request in which we ask city to provide space for the church. Right now, we are prayng while waiting to hear back about our request.
A Christian Concert:
On 2.May we organized evangelization evening in Sremska Mitrovica. Between 40 and 50 people from Sremska Mitrovica, Ruma and Sid came to this event. We organized concert of Christian music, and shared the good news about Jesus Christ with the visitors.
Over these next weeks…
…we will continue with our regular church activities and our work with people. In September we will start with Alpha course in Ruma and Sremska Mitrovica on which we will invite our friends and their families. August will be the month of preparation and prayer for this coming event.
We would like to thank for the support you have shown to us and all your prayers. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue our work.
- Please pray that God strengthen and spread His Word and establish His church in Ruma.
- Please pray for a church building.
- Please pray for people to be changed and touched by God in Alpha course in Ruma and Sremska Mitrovica.
We are thankful to our God Jesus Christ for the privilege to be part of His great work.
Yours in Christ.
Drago and Jaroslava
