Blessings of the New Year

We praise the Lord for what He is doing already this year. John Reaves and I have been working together handing out tracts. One week he travels to Brno, the next I go to Olomouc. We have been distributing tracts in the outlying villages surrounding both of our cities. The added benefit is the ongoing encouragement and sharpening of swords. We both look forward to our time together. I know I have been greatly helped and encouraged by the fellowship. We are excited to report that a man we have been praying for finally came to visit our services. Jarek, pronounced Yarek, is the husband of Alena, which was saved a few years ago. Jarek was raised in a Catholic family and became very bitter against God and all things religious. God gave me great liberty to preach the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jarek listened intently to the message and at times seemed to be under conviction. We pray the Holy Spirit will work in his heart to bring him to repentance. Others have promised to come and have asked questions each time we meet with them, however have not yet been willing to attend church or to do a Bible study. Pray for Ladka and Martin in this area.

Debra completed a four week Bible study with Lenka, one of her English students. Lenka is the one responsible for getting Debra and the boys invited to speak at the middle school. She was open to the lessons, listening to all Debra shared with her. Unfortunately after they finished she stated what we hear all too frequently, ?that?s nice and very interesting but I do not believe it.? Pray for Lenka as well.

This month we are spending extended times in prayer and fasting. We are asking the Lord to answer some very specific requests. We are also asking the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest. There is so much work to be done and the laborers are so few. Won?t you pray with us for the Lord to do great things in these last days?
