July 2015 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12

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

It has been a busy (BUSY!) month here in Nikšić as we've gone from one intensive outreach to another.  Thus, another shorter-than-usual newsletter with more-than-usual photo highlights. Even so, the ongoing work of preaching, teaching, praying, discipling, living, and loving continues on.  How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

  • Share our delight in God's answer to prayer regarding employment for not one, but two of the young men in our fellowship.  With skills gained from their help in the Tonewoods business Stan set up to help believers, they are now working full-time with a growing local custom-furniture factory.  Please pray for N. and R. to be both valued employees and lights of truth in their workplace, growing in favor with God and man.
  • We just finished up this summer's intensive camp outreaches with the departure of the last of the Camp Monty team.  Many hundreds of young people have heard God's word this past month.  After a brief rest, we will be busy following up on those who are most interested to continue steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.  Please pray for these young people to heed the Word they heard, that they might build their lives on solid ground, not sinking sand.
  • Please continue to pray for the Lord to raise up a gifted individual to oversee and minister to the growing number of young children in our congregation.   Along those same lines, please pray for a larger meeting place, that we might have suitable rooms for a nursery/sunday school classroom.  And why not be bold and pray that we might have our very own facilities, rather than renting, all for the glory of God and His kingdom here in Nikšić.

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

Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
