As mentioned on the Home Page, this is a fledgling ministry that is a new birth, sowing into virgin soil. I am not aware of any other significant Christian Mission fields in Serbia, although only God knows who He has called to minister and evangelise the Serbian people.
WHAT HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED TOP DATE
God has wonderfully provided the following:
1.
A piece of good quality, arable land (200m x 40m)
2.
Vineyard, consisting of approximately 1,500 vines
3.
Large vegetable garden
4.
Cherry trees
5.
Walnut trees
6.
Small, two-roomed cottage in need of URGENT attention (see details below)
7.
Procurement of a desktop computer
8.
TV
9.
Labourers who will carry out construction, plumbing and install electrics free-of-charge.
My Father God has WONDERFULLY provided sufficient funds to enable me to renovate a 2-room cottage, a place I now call home.

As you probably know, the walls, the ceiling and the floors, all looked rather ghastly. The place is now tiled, the floor fixed and the ceiling is now beautiful. The original old beams were sanded and varnished and at night it looks so cosy with the flames of the wood stove reflected on the ceiling.

The bathroom is also tiled and has all the fittings, like a mirror, towel rail etc, as well as a bath enclosure. What a life changing experience it has been for me, to at last live in a place that I am able to clean properly.

I would like to share my immediate needs with you so that you also know how to pray for me with understanding.

I am trusting God to help me build a little kitchen and living room which will be added to the existing structure.

Presently everything is done in the single bedroom, including entertaining friends and visitors. This is far from ideal, especially as I also have to cook in the bedroom.

I also need some paving and fencing around the little house as it gets very muddy and I need to be able to provide a secure enclosure for my beloved dog and cat.

As can be seen from the photo above, the cottage I live in is VERY BASIC.

I have attempted to detail the different requirements and place an estimated cost against each item. PLEASE would you be kind enough to pray and ask the Lord if He would have you become involved in making a donation towards the needs identified below. Any gift would be welcome. Where gifts are made against specific items, the expenditure will be targeted against the items you have selected.

I have broken my needs into 3 categories:
1.
Running costs
2.
Capital costs
3.
Transport

As explained in ‘The Vision’ page, part of God’s calling on us is to ‘feed the hungry’. God has already wonderfully provided the orchards, vines and vegetable gardens but in order to either sell the ‘produce’ or deliver it to people in need, the ministry has need of a van that is both reliable and economical.
Serbia is connected to the gas pipeline that comes from Russia so many people make use of cars running on gas and they are very available here. The price of gas is also going up like petrol, but it is still much cheaper than petrol.

In the summer we will need to dig a borehole so that we can irrigate the 1,500 odd vines and the sizeable vegetable garden. In addition we hope to build some greenhouses, irrigate the land, buy fertiliser etc. These are all areas that I am already praying about.

Dear brothers and sisters, please prayerfully commit these needs to the Lord and consider supporting this ministry as the Lord enables you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the Contact Us page.

Love and blessings, in His matchless Name.
