October 2017 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter
Save us, O God of our salvation,
and gather and deliver us from among the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name
and glory in your praise.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting! I Chron. 16:35,36
Grace and Peace to you in the Name of God our Father!
Greetings from Nikšić! Fall is definitely upon us: the leaves are turning color and there is snow on the mountains! Truly, He has made everything beautiful in its time.
- We are enjoying the fresh start autumn brings with the renewal of weekly pastoral meetings, visitations, mentoring/discipleship times along with the regular services and prayer meeting. The EUS Student work has fully started up again as well with the return of university students. Please pray that we all would be faithful to use the gifts God has given us to serve Him well.
- We are thrilled to have several new regular attendees to our services, including school-aged children. Thus, for the time being, Martina (one of our own) has begun a simple Sunday School for the children. Please pray that God would use this humble beginning to bless the children mightily. Also, please continue to pray for a full-time dedicated worker/couple to oversee this growing area of need.
- In honor of the 500th anniversary of The Reformation, Stan is coordinating a press conference/round table on its importance and influence in conjunction with the German Embassy. Montenegrins know very little about the Reformation nor that the most popular Bible translation here is based on Martin Luther's work. We trust this will increase understanding and give credence to Protestantism/Biblical Christianity here in MNE. Please pray for good success! (Interestingly, October 31st will be a national holiday in both Germany and Slovenia!)
We are extremely grateful for all those individuals and churches who support this work through prayer, encouragement, and material giving. If you'd like to join our team of financial supporters or adjust the gift you already give, please read past our signature.
One with you in Christ,
Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
