Praise the Lord!

Last year here in Croatia the government passed a law making Croatia a virtually closed country to missionaries. Our hearts dropped as we have waited 8 years for other missionaries to come to Croatia. We were exempt from the change in law since we have permanent residence but for any new missionaries it would be all but impossible to get into Croatia on a permanent basis. We have future partners on deputation now so this law was a major problem. They were busy raising money and we all had faith that our great God was going to change this law, with tears in my eyes I gladly report that the Croatian news channel reported that this law will be reversed this fall for sure!

God is so good! How blessed we are to serve such a gracious, loving, caring God. Praise His Name!!

  12. That's wonderful news, Tori. What was the reason for closing to missionaries in the first place? (I'm not too familiar with Croatia, sorry to say, except that I keep seeing commercials for tourism.)

  13. Thank you for your comment on my 'bragging about the kids'...always enjoy 'meeting' a new KJV Baptist missionary from other parts of the world...do you do Facebook? If so we are on there too.
    Praise God for opening the country of Croatia again...we will pray that the devil will continue to be defeated!!! And for wisdom and grace for you to continue as well as the new missionaries to learn quickly.
    God bless,
