Church in Ruma wishes you a very Merry Christmas. We wish you a Joyous Christmas Season and a Happy New Year of God’s favor.
Veliki pozdrav od porodice Milenković. Ovim želimo da vam zahvalimo za vaše molitve i podrške nama i da vas informišemo o tome kako idu stvari kod nas sada. Prošlo je skoro 5 meseci od našeg povratka kući iz Memfisa. Divno je to što se Sara dobro oporavlja i što se koliko toliko vratila u svoje svakodnevne rutine. Apetit joj se polako vraća, čak je i dobila 2 kg na težini. Vrlo je uporna, vredna i hrabra i ako se lako umori i telo joj je još slabo, ona gura napred. Ide u školu redovno u svoj razred i zaista je odlična sa svojim školskim obavezama. Bojali smo se kako će sve to ići, ali vidimo da ima ogromnu podršku svojih drugova iz razreda i učiteljice. Često vidimo kako različiti mališani nose Sarinu torbu do kuće na povratku iz škole. Zaista hvala Bogu za to! To je odgovor na molitve.
Za samo dve nedelje, 4. januara, putujemo na sledeću kontrolu u Memfis. Uvek će to biti izazov za nas i molimo vas da se posebno molite za Saru i za to vreme tamo.
Jana je pošla u prvi razred i uživa u svojim obavezama, druženjima, itd. Nedostaje joj Memfis i drugari koje je tamo upoznala. Naša mala Lena nam je prošlog meseca napunila godinu dana i u ovom peridu nam stalno zadaje nevolje.
Nastavite da držite i dalje za Saru u vašim molitvama i ohrabrujete i druge takođe. Znamo da je nekada teško da se održi onaj srčan molitveni duh za jednu te istu stvar, ali ovo je ona borba koja dugo traje Bogu smo zahvalni za sve vas, jer u ovome nismo sami. Neko je rekao: „Istrajnost je težak posao koji radiš nakon što se umoriš radeći već težak posao.“ Ovo se upravo može odnositi i na molitvu.
Želimo da se čujemo sa vama, pištite nam, javite se, posetite nas.
Neka radost Hristovog rođenja vas prati i u novoj 2014. godini. Srećan Božić! Hristos se rodi!
Slađan, Jaroslava, Sara, Jana & Lena
Greetings from the Milenkovic family. With this, we’d like to thank you for your prayers and your support to us, and to inform you how things are going with us now. It’s been almost 5 months since our return from Memphis back home. It is great that Sara’s been recovering well and that she’s more or less back to her daily routine. She’s been regaining her appetite, she’s even gained about 4 pounds (2 kg). She’s very persistent, hardworking and brave. Although she gets easily tired and her body’s still week, she’s pushing forward. She’s been attending school regularly with her old class and she’s really doing great with her school obligations. We were afraid of how that would work, but we now see that she’s got a huge support of her class-mates and the teacher. We often see different children carrying Sara’s schoolbag on their way back home from school. Really, thank God for that! This is an answer to prayers. In only about two weeks, on January 4th, we are traveling to Sara’s next check up appointment to Memphis. This would always be a challenge for us, so please pray for Sara especially and her time back there.
Jana has started first grade and is enjoying her school, spending time with friends and other things. She misses Memphis and the friends she’s met there. Our little Lena has turned one year last month and she’s a real trouble maker at this age.
Please keep carrying Sara in your prayers and encourage others to do it as well. We know that sometimes it is hard to keep the same wholehearted prayer spirit for the very same thing, but this is one of those battles that last long and we are thankful to God, because we are not alone in all this. Someone has said: “Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” This can refer to prayers indeed.
We would like to hear from you, have you write to us, contact us, visit us.
May the joy of Christ’s birth be with you in the New Year 2014. Merry Christmas! Christ is born!

Yesterday’s great Surprise
What a blessing for me as a pastor to see members of my church in Pacir faithfully serve yesterday at the first meeting of the 10-week evangelistic outreach, Alpha Course 2013.
Seventeen new people attended Alpha Course and, after having dinner together, they listened to the first teaching: Who is Jesus? This is a shocking number, considering the whole village has only 2,500 inhabitants. It was a joy for me to see the believers from Pacir serve eagerly, the sanctuary was full, and even more people are planning to come for the next occasion.
Please pray for us for wisdom in organization and that God would work in the hearts of the guests.
