And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9
Another week is in the books. We had a great service last Wednesday in Kuršanec. A young man named Miljenko, who has been faithful since we started our adult meeting, brought a visitor to Church. This young man came to our children’s ministry in the village, and was faithful to come every week. When he reached 13 or so he quit coming and avoided us in the village. It is a joy to see him back; being faithful; and even bringing a visitor with him.
Our children’s ministries was also blessed. Attendance is up again. Both, the Saturday and Sunday meeting were packed. Sometimes it’s frustrating and you wonder if you are making a difference. Then God reminds you maybe the next great Gypsy Preacher is in the room and listening and growing. Maybe that young man will be a mighty preacher for God among the Gypsies of Europe.
Nothing spectacular in Varaždin Sunday morning. We did have 29 in attendance and the Word of God was opened and preached! I just want to remain faithful week after week and point our people to Jesus.
We finished the week with Harvest Sunday in Čakovec. There were 29 in attendance with 6 visitors. Brother Rič preached a great message and the Gospel was preached. One of the visitors was a 20 year old young man. He said he knew Rič and I, but we did not recognize him. We then learned he was at our church when he was 10. I used to pick up his mom and grandma, along with this young man and his sister, and bring them to Church. What a joy to learn who he was; and think the seed sown 10 years ago is producing fruit today. I’m glad after 10 years there is church still here that he could come back to. He’s supposed to be back next Sunday! Pray that God would do a work in Krunoslav this week!
