August 2020 Mission to Montenegro Newsletter

Sing praises to God, sing praises;

sing praises to our King, sing praises.

For God is the King of all the earth;

sing to him a psalm of praise. Ps. 47:6,7

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

Isn't it marvelous that grace and peace are ours in these challenging times?!  What an awesome God we serve!

  • In our morning service, Stan has wrapped up Exodus 23, highlighting the wonderful promise and provision of God leading His people into the promised land and its ultimate fulfillment by Christ our Savior.  In our evening Zoom meetings, we are continuing to go through Hebrews 7, covering shorter portions of scripture (due to the format) than in a normal service.  This slower format, however, has allowed us to savor the reality of Jesus, the superior priest who is far above and in a different class altogether from the Levitical priests and the mysterious Melchizedek of old.

  • As you can see from the picture above, our online presence continues and is growing! So much so that we would like to make a series of shorter (5-10 min) videos covering basics of the Christian faith for the benefit of seekers and new believers.  This project is in its nascent stage of determining a specific scope and sequence.  Please pray for wisdom from above to hit the right topics at the right time.
  • In another exciting development, we've gotten permission to translate Good News for Anxious Christians, a book we keep on our coffee table when teams visit, which has proven to be  helpful for young people concerned about knowing and following the will of God. We have a translator and are currently researching the possibility of printing the book locally here in Montenegro and not outsourced (as in the past) to other countries.  Please pray that this project goes forward expeditiously.

With great love and appreciation for your ongoing prayers and support,

Stan and Vicki Surbatovich
