Floods, Recording, Teaching, and Cake

Hello again! Yesterday was an interesting day as most of our group went to visit the town of Maglai, which was recently affected by some serious flooding in the area. It appears that God is opening up some great doors for Izvor and the Malta church to bring some aid and build relationships with people in that town. I can’t tell you much more about that trip because ended up staying behind and spent the day with Neno, the worship leader from the Malta church.

Neno working on the recording for a music video.

The Malta church does some really great things with their music ministry and for some time now, they have recorded worship cd’s. Currently, Neno and his team are working on filming a music video of their worship team singing the song, “Fire Never Sleeps” by Jesus Culture and Martin Smith. He and I spent much of the day working on mixing the recording for the video. I really enjoyed making a new friend and getting to talk with him about worship ministry, music, and recording. In a country that has very few people following Jesus I think it is really great to see musicians such as Neno working to offer recordings of worship music for the believers in Bosnia.

This weekend the team split up again. The two ladies on our team stayed in Sarajevo and are going to be helping with a cake decorating class that is being taught at the Ilidza church. You can be praying for this event because ladies from the church are inviting their friends to come participate in the class. Pray that relationships will be built between followers of Jesus and women who are not currently believers. Pray that Jesus would draw hearts to himself through outreaches such as this class.

While the ladies are working with the cake class, Pastor Nick and Pastor Matt are teaching a class at the Bible School in Mostar. We arrived earlier today and got to do a little sight seeing, but tonight, Nick and Matt are teaching a Friday evening class. For now please pray for Professor Nick, Professor Matt and the students. Tomorrow’s class will be an especially long day for them.
