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!
