The Latest News from “HUB” – the Bible School in Belgrade.

Sladjan and Jaroslava write:

We greet you from HUB and the Bible School…

Very busy summer in HUB is now behind us.

We were hosts to almost 400 people during the summer. These opportunities to serve many in this way are a great blessing to us. 

Students’ registration

We have a very important month ahead us. There is students’ registration in the first year of the Bible School. We have a lot of students interested and we expect to have a solid group this year. We ask you to pray for the interviews appointed on 4th of September in Veles, Macedonia and 7th in HUB. Our wish is for this and the next, 15th generation of students to be with people who are called by our Lord to come and be a part of the School.

Thank you all who want to go along with this generation by supporting them.

Program 

The School year begins on 4th of October. We start with studying the book of Genesis and the gospel of Mathew with excellent teachers, John Baigent from England and Ronnie Stevens from USA, living in Budapest, Hungary. We are thankful to all the teachers who are ready to support the work of our school in this way.  

Mission Conference – ”Now is the time!”

We are preparing our 14th Mission Conference from 17th to 19th September. This is a significant event when we expect to have many ex students and guests. Our speaker will be Andrew Jack from London who is our regular teacher at the Bible School. With the theme ”Now is the time” he will teach us from the book of Acts 1-8. We believe we will be encouraged and enjoy fellowship to the glory of God.

New faces in the team

Beginning in September we have Dragan and Gordana Radeka on our team. They were our students five years ago. We ask you to pray for them as they begin their ministry here with us. We praise the Lord for them.

Thank you all for being with us in this ministry that God leads. We thank Him because due to your prayers and sacrifices He is able to use us to go forward. 

 Yours in Christ,

 – Sladjan and Jaroslava

News from Drago and Jaroslava…

We are grateful for the opportunity to share with you the events from our life and ministry that has been trusted to us by our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.

Prayer requests:

  • 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.
