Dear Pastor, Church, and praying friends:
We have been putting out tracts as normal and once again have received negative reactions. In June someone called to threaten us with bodily harm if they ever received another tract. It was last year that we got a death threat for the very same thing. I just cannot understand how they could get so enraged from receiving the simple Gospel, the best news in the world! Crazy!! This world is becoming more and more intolerant and resistant toward God.
Early June we had a couple over for lunch on a Saturday as a result of the language institute. The lady who was at the school is a Spaniard who met her husband, a Serbian, in Spain, and then moved here after having their baby there. It was a joy to give the Gospel to Mihailo and Elena in our home. Please pray we can have more opportunities to be a witness to them since it was too new to them hearing it for the first time and that we would be able to see them saved.
Teen Bible Camp
We were privileged to be able to be with our Australian missionary friends in Romania for the start of their teen camp second week of July. Whew! Campiest teen camp I have ever seen! They camped with tents (the boys) and the girls slept in a loft, while they all drank from and bathed in a nearby creek. But, boy, it is a beautiful area, right across the Danube from Serbia. I was privileged to preach to the church the Sunday PM service prior to camp. It was a blessing seeing two still coming and growing that had been saved 2.5 years ago the first time I preached there. They had a great group from all around Romania that came for camp, somewhere around 50-60 with workers. It was a blessing as well to preach that Tuesday PM service at camp, which was the first time I was able to preach at a teen camp. The Lord blessed and moved in hearts as we had 6 hands raised with 2-3 coming forward to dedicate their life to the Lord and the ministry, several hands for salvation with one coming forward for assurance, and several for giving up bad addictions in their lives. Praise the Lord!
Please also pray for some folks that Rachel has been meeting while out shopping at the local farmer’s market or on her morning walks. We would like to have them over and be a witness to them. We praise the Lord for your faithful support and for standing with us in prayer.
Your servants to Serbia,
Danny, Rachel, Katelyn, Brianna & Rebekah Foss
