We held the very 1st service of Novi Život Neovisna Baptistička Crkva or New Life Independent Baptist Church here in Zagreb, Croatia which was actually held on May 6th, 2018. We had 27 in our first service. It is hard to believe that four years have already come and gone. The Lord has been faithful and we PRAISE HIM for all that He has done in that period of time. Many have come and gone but others have remained faithful and The Lord continues to send new folks our way. We have been blessed to see app. 35 professions of faith and to baptize 12 in that period of time.
We are also encouraged with a few that have been growing in The Lord, involved in Bible studies, and serving in different ways. On May 1, 2022 for our 4th Anniversary Service we had 23 in attendance.
We are also very excited to welcome Ms. Sarah Bradley who arrived here on May 20th. I had the privilege to be her pastor for a number of years and she was with us on the Missions Trip here in 2014 that The Lord used in both of our lives to call The Lowries and Sarah here to Croatia. She is a pied-piper when it comes to children and we are excited to see how The Lord will use her here. She will also be helping with social media, outreach, and a number of other areas.
June 6th-11th REMEMBER TO PRAY for the neighborhoods of Špansko, Volovčica, and the city of Split. Please pray for good weather, and ask The Lord to prepare the soil of people’s hearts in those fields.
Thank you! Bro. Lowrie
