April 2016 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter

Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
    Tell of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,
   His marvelous works among all the peoples! Ps. 96:2,3

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

We've been enjoying the burst of new life in the garden as our tulips and other spring bulbs bloom profusely.  May God be pleased to bring new life to the people here as we sing, tell, and declare His life-giving words to the peoples around us.

  • Mini-update on two past prayer requests:  1. We rejoice that our evangelistic Sunday in late March brought several never-been-to-church-before visitors, and 2.  The resubmitted application to have the student ministry, EUS-CG, recognized as a legal entity (NGO) was approved for which we are very grateful.
Come Meet the Danes Fellowship Evening
  • The Danish Bible School team is here! They're reaching out to the local university students with several events including meeting students on campus, hosting fellowship evenings at our place, student bible studies, and more.  We are enjoying sweet fellowship and mutual edification as we work and live together for the next two weeks.
A Full House!
  • Nick Vujicic will be ministering at two major events this Thursday, one in Nikšić, one in Podgorica.  His visit has been widely promoted here in Montenegro, and he'll have a wonderful opportunity for sharing the gospel to thousands.  We're looking forward to following-up with those showing further interest in the good news of Jesus Christ.

Upcoming Ministry and Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray for the current outreach to university students and Nick's ministry all happening this week.  Continue to pray for both the practical logistics and for those ministering--that Christ might be lifted up and not we ourselves.  Pray for eyes and ears to be open, that the Holy Spirit would illumine hearts for the natural man does not understand.
  • We will be celebrating Easter on May 1st.  Cultural religious holidays always present a special opportunity to invite people to come to church. This year, however, Easter conflicts with the more widely-celebrated May First holiday.   
  • Please continue to pray for the visa situations of Peter S, Peter G, and Rebekka (who will be coming late summer to stay for a year.)  Changing laws and regulations have complicated the process for both the applicants and the granting offices.
With great love and appreciation for your ongoing prayers and support in this great work of God,

Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
