May 30th, God sure is good!!

Again God showed His power! 13 more priceless souls accepted Jesus as their personal Savior.
As the men got weaker and more tired God's power took over.

Bro. Johnny had the wonderful privilege of leading Ivana and Dijana to the Lord Jesus Christ. They listened intently and decided that they needed Jesus to pay their penalty for sin. Amen!

Dino got saved today and he will always be saved, for eternity!

Today Bro. Johnny met Josip in town. Jasmin is a young man that received Christ as his Savior yesterday. Today Jasmin and his friend Marinko were in town and Bro. Johnny began to tell Marinko about Jesus. As he was explaining the plan of salvation to Marinko, Jasmin said, "I got saved yesterday!". What a blessing for Bro. Johnny and Jasmin to see Marinko accept the same free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ that they had received.

Elvis was more blessed than he knew on this day. God had a divine appointment for him and Bro. Rich. Elvis heard about what Jesus did for him on Calvary and bowed his head and received Christ as his Savior.

Jasmin was in Čakovec on the right day! Today he met Jesus and was born into the family of God!

Bro. Johnny and Bro. Sam have been praying for a recent contact. Franjo an old, sick man cried as they told him about Jesus and what He did for him. Franjo decided not to receive Jesus on that day but told them to come back. When they returned the next day Franjo's wife had interfered and influenced Franjo not to be saved, how sad! Bro. Johnny and Sam decided to earnestly pray for Franjo to be saved. Apparently they didn't pray specifically enough because Franjo was saved today, but not the same Franjo.

Please pray for Franjo, a man rich in years and very ill. He could at any moment go off into eternity without Christ, God forbid!

What a blessing to meet Luka in the park today. After hearing about the love of Christ and what He did for him on Calvary Luka decided he wanted to have a personal relationship with Christ. As Bro. Johnny went through the plan of salvation with Luka his friend constantly called his name, urged him to leave and text messaged him. Also during this time some girls were laughing at him and still he stayed. Luka had enough courage to receive the gift of eternal life in front of all his peers.

Also saved today were five 13-15 year old teens. The national pastor Bro. Rich led them to the Lord. Praise God that the nationals are busy winning their own!

Please continue to pray, the men are weakening as the days are long, 8.5 hours a day and the heat is extreme at times. Please remember Bro. Sam who battles with MD and could use the extra prayers.

Thank you all for the prayers already sent up on behalf of the men and the precious Croatian people.

God is so good. Thank you for sharing the pictures with us. It is amazing to see the faces of the ones that have accepted Christ. It's nice to have faces to go along with the names and testimonies of those who have accepted the Lord.

Special thanks to every one who prayed for the Soul Winning Marathon. It was a success with 78 folks receiving Christ as Savior because you prayed!
