Joyful time in Hungary

Pastor Rajko Telebar had some business to tend to in Hungary on Monday this week and asked me to accompany him.
We drove about 25 km into the country to the large city of Nagykanizsa.

We had already been equipped with some Hungarian Gospel tracts by our friend Jim Pranger, missionary in Budapest.

As we walked from the car to the place of business, we tried to give a tract to everyone we encountered.

In spite of temperature in the low 20’s F, many people gladly accepted the tracts from us. Even though we could not carry on a conversation with these dear people, we were able to give them the incorruptible Word of God. Now they have the truth and an opportunity to get saved.

It is a great joy to spread the Word of God, wherever you may be. Who knows what God might do? Perhaps one who will become a great evangelist in Hungary was one of the people who got a tract from us that day. Wouldn’t that be something? I always like to say, “You never know”.

A day of great sorrow

It was a day of great sorrow in Croatia. Today we held the funeral for the 15 year-old son of one of our dear church members.
Jasmin was struck and killed by a drunk driver Friday night while walking down a street near his home.
Thank the Lord this young man had been gloriously saved not long ago. We will be with him in heaven, as will his precious mom and dad.
The pain of this day is unspeakable, but the gift that makes hope possible at such a time is also unspeakable.
Through the blood of Christ - freely given to pay for sin - this young man was saved for all eternity.
Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift.

Jasmin, we will see you soon.

Great Snowfall

We're not in Texas anymore

We are blessed in Croatia with much beauty from what God has created. Now that winter is upon us, we get to see more of the majesty of God in snowfall that frequently comes to Croatia.

These are pictures of the first big snow of 2010 - and the first I have seen since arriving in the spring.

It reminds me of the verse, Isaiah 1:18, that says,

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow ...

I am not in Texas anymore, and that is made clearer from the heavy snow.
But that's OK, God is with me.
