Serbia Mission Report


September 2, 2015

Dear Friends in Christ,

Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 1:2

In late August Pastor David Sims left for Serbia to meet with brethren who are zealous for the truth, who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Here is a short report on his time there by one brother from Serbia.

We enjoyed five beautiful days, studying the Bible and fellowshipping together. We learned some things about ourselves including some things that we need to overcome.

The Lord also blessed our time studying with a former Jehovah's Witness, who has accepted the three angels messages and the truth about God.

On Sabbath we had a really nice Church service and more than twenty people came. We spent much of our time in the open air under the beautiful blue sky. We shared lunch together and visited some horses, an ostrich and some other animals as well. Later we had an ordination of brother Dragan taking the first step in organizing the Church in Serbia. The Sabbath was closed by partking of the Lord’s Supper.

On Sunday, we had the most beautiful part of our week together. A young lady with a nominal Orthodox background, had decided to be baptized after many prayers and much encouragement had been given to allay her fears. Now, after a few days, she has told us a couple of times that she has a peace in her heart. The following is a message from her:

"Dear brother, Happy to see mails from you and _________. I want to share with you that I am very happy because of my decision to be baptized. With every hour I am more convinced that I made a good decision. My heart is full of gratitude to the Lord because of his patience to me. There is one more thing which I want to share, I decided to be vegan. Christ with all of you! Sincerely, ___________"

Let us uphold this dear sister in prayer that she will remain firm to her decision to follow Christ, in spite of opposition from close family members.

Pray for the work in Serbia and that the Church of the only-begotten Son of God may continue to grow in grace and truth.
