December 2015 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
and the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Is. 9:6
Grace and Peace to you in the name of God our Father!
With the busy holiday season upon us all, this newsletter will be short and sweet.
- We will be having two special Christmas services this year: the first on Jan. 3rd with an evangelistic Christmas message geared for unbelievers followed by festive refreshments, and the second on Jan. 7th as a Christmas celebration for believers. Please pray for many to come and learn of the Son given unto us.
- The application to have the student ministry, EUS-Montenegro, recognized as a legal entity (NGO) was denied by the government. There are several directions to go from here, including an appeal for reconsideration of the original request. Please pray for wisdom regarding next steps and favor from the state.
- Our next step in improving our meeting facilities is an intercom system so parents of infants can hear the service while in the nursery. Peter S. plans to bring one from England when he returns from his Christmas holiday. Please continue to pray for a dedicated Children's worker to oversee ministry and outreached geared to the young ones.
- We will get to enjoy the company of three of our children this Christmas season (Amy, Josiah, and Milijana) and will greatly miss Anna Marie and Christian this year. Please pray for us as we work out and live with the dynamics of being a transatlantic family.
With great love and appreciation for your ongoing prayers and support in this great work of God,
Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
