May 2017 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter

There is a timeA)"> for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die... 
a time to mourn and a time to dance… 
He has made everything beautiful in its time.  
Eccles 3: 1-2,4,11

Grace and Peace to you in the name of God our Father!

How reassuring are the above words! These Scriptures are so utterly timeless and true despite being penned thousands of years ago.  This past month, this season of activity,  we’ve experienced God’s loving kindness in so many ways.

We've had a time to laugh and a time to dance  as we celebrated the graduations of of our two youngest children and rejoice in the good things ahead for them in this next season of their lives.  Josiah will soon be working in the medical field as a Physician Assistant and Milijana is pursuing PhD studies at Carnegie Mellon. We were also able to touch base with our other three children. Join us as we praise God for His many mercies and pray for all our children as we minister in Montenegro and they live in the US.

We've had a time to build and a time to speak as Stan enjoyed giving a report on the work and preaching in Virginia earlier this month and will be presenting in Upstate New York this coming weekend.  Vicki had a chance to visit the saints from our sending church, Faith Community Church, and help out Stan's mother as well.   It has been a wonderful time of being mutually encouraged by each other's faith, both yours and ours.  (Rom. 1:12)

We've had a time to mourn and to weep as we lost one of our elderly ladies in Nikšić to cancer.  We believe she had a simple, sincere trust in the Lord, so we do not mourn as those without hope. Please pray, though, for her grieving family.

With much love and appreciation for your ongoing prayers and support in this great work of God,

Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
