Mission Moment—April 2016

MISSION: Report from the marriage seminar in Bosnia-Hezegovina:

Thank you both so much for mobilizing your church to provide scholarships for the recent marriage conference.  Our couples were so enthusiastic that before the end of the weekend they wanted to pre-register for next year’s conference.  🙂  Of course, we haven’t even talked about doing another one next year, but that shows you how thirsty they were for this kind of teaching. Mark and I were both really impressed with the great need here in Bosnia for marriage enrichment teaching/seminars/weekends.  Several of the pastors took notice, too.  Every event Dan and Elaine spoke at was very well attended.  Dozens of couples heard practical, biblical teaching on marriage.  Among them were at least 20 muslim couples!

Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ,

This is a thank-you letter, and through this letter my wife and me want to thank you for your deeds of love towards us. My name is Kenan and I’m Bosnian and my wife is German. We are in marriage for 7 years now and this conference had a great impact on us as a couple. In this short time Dan and Elaine had a really great impact on us as a couple. They discovered some small things that will help and improve better and deeper relations in our marriage, which is first institution that God has made. Thank you once again for giving us this opportunity to learn so much. God bless.

We’ve been married 8 years and this was our first opportunity to go on a honeymoon. We thank God for sending us to this beautiful place after such a long time.  Eight years ago things were not good.  From the first day of our marriage we experienced persecution from our own families because we decided to place our marriage in Jesus’ hands.  Our family disinherited and shunned us but the Lord remained faithful.  In Isaiah 43:1-5 it says that nothing will happen to us because He is with us and has paid a great price for us because we are precious in his sight. Today I see how precious our marriage is to the Lord and how much he loves us.  So much that after all this time he made a honeymoon possible for us.  In addition to that, the Lord granted a great desire of my wife’s heart.  At age 30 she was able to come to the sea and is very happy and thankful.  Thank you so much for making it possible for us to be a part of this seminar and that we were able to have a “honeymoon”.  May the Lord bless you abundantly.
