Tonight, an extremely poor family hosted the Bible study group. Please understand that when I say a “poor family,” I mean extremely poor. They have no beds on which to sleep. They have no chairs on which to sit. They have no electricity to light the room. What they have, however, is an passion about being part of the Body of Christ and an excitement to gather with believers in their home to study the Word of God!
This family spent all week preparing a room for tonight’s study. They cleaned the room. They painted the walls. They bought candles for light. And tonight, seven of us sat on the floor in this very special room, bathed in candle light, and rejoiced together as we studied Mark 4.
We didn’t need comfort. We didn’t even need light bulbs. We had a special gift from the Lord…fellowship and His presence!
Church as it was meant to be…
It is amazing how time flies. Week four has already started, and it seems like yesterday that we started our second term. Intense Bible study, fellowship and serving to others make time in school pass unnoticeably. The students are glad that they can be at a place like HUB, where they can receive these blessings.
Students’ practical days in the past two weeks In the past two weeks.
For their practical days, the students have done many activities: they gave out the New Testaments and shared the Gospel in Belgrade downtown, visited families with disabled children and a Nursing Home for Adult Disabled People in Belgrade. They also visited an elderly sister who is not able to go to church, gave out tracts to all the homes in Alibunar, participated in Youth meetings at Pentecostal church in Pancevo and visited “Duga”, the rehab center for drug addicts in Novi Sad. We are thankful to God that He opens the doors for us to be used together with the students to His glory.
Serving to churches We rejoice that we can be a blessing to churches in this way.
Visits and serving to churches every week are some of the important kinds of our ministry. Within these couple of weeks we have visited the Protestant Christian Fellowship in Temerin, the Church of God and the 2nd Baptist church in Belgrade, as well as a new founded church in Novi Belgrade. Every week, a few of us go to participate in a small group in Titel. Please pray that this ministry, given to us by God, would advance in spreading the Kingdom of God in Serbia and the Balkans.
Thank you for being with us.
