May 2018 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter
I am the Lord, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness,
I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.
Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
Is. 45: 6b, 7, 22
Grace and Peace to you in the name of God our Father!
God: The maker of light, darkness, peace, and calamity; the one and only one who saves. What a mighty God we serve! Soli Deo Gloria! Due to our stateside travels, this newsletter will be a bit different, but God's hand is no less evident. Here are a few highlights of the past month:
- At the end of April, Vicki was privileged to speak at a Ladies' Tea held in Podgorica (the capital city). Given the topic of Cross-Generational Discipleship, she focused on Biblical insights and helps for modern women to disciple in a godly manner. Please pray that we all would press in and encourage one another to love and good works.
- We began our stateside time participating in the national FIRE conference hosted by our sending church, Faith Community Church. With the great teaching and the great fellowship, we found ourselves wonderfully refreshed; a nice start & tank up before our jet set life began. Please pray for us as we are commencing a very busy visitation schedule over the next few weeks.
- Just this past weekend, we celebrated our son's graduation from university with a BS degree in Computer Science. We feel humbled by God's kindness in His provision that all five of our children were able to attain a university education. Christian is currently in the applying and interviewing process for a full-time job, so your prayers are much appreciated!
- Sadly, the vandalism of our church sign continues to escalate; now there is damage not only to our sign but the building (property of another) that we rent. Please pray for wisdom in dealing with the police as we report the damage and ultimately the culprit(s) when found. On a happier note, the brethren in Niksic are doing well; we are hearing reports of good teaching and good fellowship. Please continue to pray for unity of the spirit, for protection from enemies, and for a joy and peace that passes understanding.
With great love and appreciation for your ongoing prayers and support in this great work of God,
Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
