DAY 1 on our Oak Hall in Serbia ATOM Expedition…

Tonight we write to you from Belgrade.  It has been an excellent day of travel, introductions and orientation…

Highlights included:

  • watching the sunrise from the wide windows of an Oak Hall coach as we made the first leg of the journey towards Luton airport…
  • hearing something of each other’s stories as we travelled first on the coach, then by plane and finally by minibus to reach the centre of Belgrade;
  • exploring Serbia’s capital city – today 36 degrees Celsius – and sipping home-made lemonade in cafes before climbing the castle walls above the confluence of the mighty Danube and Sava rivers;
  • receiving a hearty Serbian welcome at the Bible College and being served “rostilj”;
  • praying about the week ahead and reading the first verses of 1 John – the book we are studying this week;
  • playing frisbee and then sitting by a fire and finally watching the sun set on the Vojvodinian plains beyond the Bible College;

Tomorrow after a welcome sleep, we head south through Cacak to begin our first assignment as a team…

Thank you for following this blog and praying with us!  Greetings from us all!
