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.
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We would like to take this opportunity to share two very important events that have occurred during the past month.
As mentioned in the title, I would like to share the news about the two births – one in our family and one in our church.
Every birth is a very important and positive thing. New life brings joy, blessings and prosperity. So it is in this case!
Luka has been born!
As a family we are so glad that we got another child. Luke came as the sixth member of our family. All about Jaroslava’s pregnancy and delivery went well. Now we enjoy the wonderful gift that the Lord has given us.
Last month has been rich with the new beginnings.
I would like to tell you a little bit more about Marko. Marko is from Ruma and he is 34 years old. Last month he has been born also! Let me explain. Marko had actually been born 34 years ago, but last month Marko has experienced the new birth. He met and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. It was an honor and a privilege to baptize Marko. Marko’s baptism confirmed his faith and trust in Jesus Christ. I had a chance to talk to several Marko’s friends and they told me they were amazed by the change he underwent in such a short time. We rejoice and praise God, as Marko became part of our great Christian family.
As a church and as a family we would like to thank you for your continuous support for the work to which our Lord Jesus Christ has called us.
Drago and Jaroslava
Today we drove from Sarajevo towards the East passing over the mountains towards the River Drina. At Zvornik we crossed into Serbia and then drove north to Ruma.
In Ruma we met Drago and Jaroslava along with Pero. Drago and Pero shared with us about the way that Jesus Christ has freed them from their heroine addiction. Now planting a church in this city, this dynamic team are connecting with others who have struggled with the same kinds of traps – and are pointing them towards the liberation that Jesus can bring…
Two more hours East and we reached Belgrade and the Bible School. Brilliant to be welcomed by Sladjan and the team…
Here are a few shots from our day:
As you know, in Serbia Christmas is celebrated on January 7. As an introduction to the Christmas atmosphere, we organized a Christmas concert in Ruma. The concert will be held today at 5 pm at the Cultural center in Ruma. Will Perform Baptist Church Choir from Sid and songwriter Mirko Mravik.
The most important thing tonight will be a brief message about Jesus and the importance of His birth for us.
Please pray for this event. For people to come and be touched by message about Jesus.
Thank you for support!
