Czech services

Another wonderful day to praise the Lord for His goodness and His protection. Yesterday, the temperatures dropped and the snow began to fall and fall and fall. At one point last night, we thought services would be late or possible need to be cancelled for the safety of those that need to travel so far to get here. This morning we were back to the unusually warm tempertures that we have be having and by service time the snow was mostly gone. - Praise God. It was good to see Mirek back in service today. Continue to pray for decissions to be made. Also pray for our Salvation Bible Study starting this week with Suzana, continuing parenting classes and a meeting we have scheduled with Lenka, who has not been in church services for sometime.

Czech Services January 8th

Great services today, but too many missing because of illness and meetings. Continue to pray for those who attend Brno Baptist Church. Some still need to be saved and others need to be baptisted. Please pray for Micky, a nine years old boy, he had a lot of questions today in services. He needs to get saved. His mother and father are members of the church here in Brno.

New Year services

What a blessing it was to start off another year to serve the Lord on a Sunday. Our services were encouraging and uplifting with special music and testimonies from those who attended. We are look forward to the open doors that the Lord will show us during 2012. Is this the year of the Lord's return, only the FATHER knows, until then we will be busy about the work He has called us. We have some new outreach opportunties this year - will update as plans come together.

Chrismas 2011

Our Christmas here in the Czech Republic was a blessing with several visitors, delicious food and many Czech cookies and cakes. We enjoyed many visits with our Czech and American friends during these holidays, but the greatest blessing to our family and the church family was presenting this year's gift basket and Bible to a young mother and widow. Please continue to pray for the salvation of the Czech people. We made many contacts this Christmas and we would like to see the Lord do a work in their hearts in 2012

Visit to the USA

This year we were able to spend Thanksgiving day and three additional weeks with our daughters and their families. It was great to spend time talking with the girls, getting to know our son-in-laws a little better and loving those grandauthers of ours. We were also able to visit with Deb's mom and sister and my parents. Our home church, Grace Bible Baptist Church, celebrated 50 years on Sunday December 13th in which Debra and I were able to take part in the services. Thank you to all who sent love offering and Christmas gifts that made this trip possible. Next time back in the USA we will being visiting our supporting churches and prayer parteners.
