Here are some prayer needs:
We have started classes at Mostar Bible School and have 6 solid students. Zana and Izabela are from the West Mostar Church. Ivan is from Chapljina. Aleksander is from Sarajevo. Boris is from Vrata Nade (Door of Hope drug rehab center) in Breza. We also have Tony from Ploche, who will be coming for the next session. His father died suddenly just before classes started. We would appreciate your prayers for each of them. Our next session starts November 9. Viviane will be cooking again for students and staff.
Viviane is leading a fitness class 3 times a week and a mother’s prayer group weekly. She helps with a clothing boutique in Rodoch, a suburb of Mostar. She also visits regularly with women from these ministries, from the church and from our neighborhood. Pray that she gets opportunities to share Christ.
Mark is preparing for the next Bible School board meeting. He presented a plan for broadening the focus of the school to include licensing and ordination of candidates for ministry. This function is currently lacking in the Evangelical Church of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The reaction was positive. Now we need to make some concrete plans to implement it and get the support of the national pastors. I am also meeting with a couple of men in mentoring relationships. It is really exciting to see God working in their lives.
We came back to Mostar this term with apprehension about the future. God has very clearly demonstrated to us that we are in the correct place at this time. We sense that something is about to happen—like we are on the verge of revival or better. Please pray to that end.
Thanks so much,
Mark and Viviane
