Blessings of the New Year

We praise the Lord for what He is doing already this year. John Reaves and I have been working together handing out tracts. One week he travels to Brno, the next I go to Olomouc. We have been distributing tracts in the outlying villages surrounding both of our cities. The added benefit is the on-going encouragement and sharpening of swords. We both look forward to our time together. I know I have been greatly helped and encouraged by the fellowship. We are excited to report that a man we have been praying for finally came to visit our services. Jarek, pronounced Yarek, is the husband of Alena, which was saved a few years ago. Jarek was raised in a Catholic family and became very bitter against God and all things religious. God gave me great liberty to preach the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jarek listened intently to the message and at times seemed to be under conviction. We pray the Holy Spirit will work in his heart to bring him to repentance. Others have promised to come and have asked questions each time we meet with them, however have not yet been willing to attend church or to do a Bible study. Pray for Ladka and Martin in this area.
