Sisak

In my quest to reach all of Croatia with the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have created a list of the cities of Croatia, with their populations and distance from my home base of Čakovec and have begun to work my way through the list. I plan to go to each city and spend a day witnessing and planting seed and then make the circuit over and over.
Having already been to Koprivnica, Bjelovar, and Đurđevac, this week I made it to Sisak, which is about 2 hours from home.


Arriving there at 10:30 Tuesday morning, I began witnessing a passing tracts to people on the streets. Within about two hours, I met a young man name Stjepan. After we talked for about an hour, Stjepan happily bowed his head and asked Jesus to save his precious soul. Glory Hallelujah!
Throughout the day, up till about 9:00 PM, I was able to share the gospel with about 24 people, and give tracts to hundreds. 
It was a glorious time - glorious because God saved Stjepan, and glorious because God's name is glorified when the gospel is preached!
As has been the case in every city, I met a group of teens and presented the gospel to them.  They now have all the information necessary to know how to receive Christ as Saviour.  I pray they will.  My heart is broken for the teens of Croatia, and they receive me and listen to me.  I just know God is going to do great things with and for them. 
On this day, the weatherman had predicted rainstorms.  God had other plans.  As you can see from the photos, it was a clear and beautiful day.

During the heat of the day, while people retreat indoors, I took a break at the local castle.  This castle was built in 1544 with bricks from a cistern that the Romans built 2000 years ago.  I was told the castle was built in 6 months and was used to repel an invasion by the Turks in 1593.  Enjoy the view.


Built where two rivers come together, it is a natural place for defense. (And beautiful too.)


Some of the old cannonballs from the period.






I was hearing a noise downstairs and decided to check out the basement.


Of course, the noise is coming from the bats in the basement. I should have known. (An added point of instruction: Flash photography tends to aggravate bats. Please don't try this at home.)


The view from behind the castle. Croatia is so beautiful!


Seed planted, soul saved, God glorified. It doesn't get better than that.
