We spent last weekend ministering in a city of 60,000 Roma/gypsies that is 70% Muslim called Shutka. It is outside the capital of Skopje, Macedonia. We were able to speak at a Christian church there to encourage the believers on reaching their community. We were able to meet several Christians that were Muslim. They said what brought them to faith in Jesus was LOVE. They said Islam was a lot of rules, but that Jesus was about love.
We spent Tuesday this week having a "field trip day" exploring the capital city and visiting an 11th century church. I wish I had more pictures, but they were not allowed. To learn more about this amazing structure, you can google Boyana Church, Bulgaria.
*The open door to spread the gospel in Macedonia in a large Roma community and how receptive they were to the love of Christ. We will continue to reach out and offer leadership/pastor training and equipping.
*We are tithing what comes in to meet our budget to a local pastor who's house was damaged recently. He and his wife and 3 children are living in a small room in the meantime. The children are sleeping on couches and he and his wife are sleeping on the concrete floor. Below is the new roof that is on his house and the repair will begin soon on the walls. Thank you for giving and being a blessing to those here. These repairs could not have been done without your generosity.
*We are still in need for the Oct.-Dec. budget deficit.
* Prayers are needed for the upcoming events- church plant project meetings and interviews, a pastor's training event, and kicking off our fall english and discipleship schedule.
