Lowrie Family to Croatia

Favorite meal? What is your favorite meal . . . and why? My favorite meal to this very day is still red (pinto) beans, cornbread, and fried potatoes. It is even better if you have some homemade southern “chow chow” to put on top. If you don’t know what that it is then I would describe it as a sweet yet savory (sometimes hot) tomato relish . . . think sweet hot dog relish if nothing else. The why is this . . . we had this A LOT when I was a kid growing up. I thought that we had it all of time because we loved it so much but the truth was that we had it all the time because it went a long way and it was cheap. Regardless of how much you may love your favorite meal most everyone likes to mix it up or as some would say “variety is the spice of life”. I have said all of this to tell you that this newsletter is more of the same ol’ thing that you have “tasted” before. Even when I was a pastor, I remember a few missionaries talking about sometimes it is just hard to write a newsletter because you don’t have much to say or no exciting news to write. This month’s letter is another serving of red beans, cornbread, and fried potatoes . . . nothing too new but it sure is good!

We started the month of August off with a 8 guests and 31 total in attendance and we enjoyed a wonderful Church Family Lunch after a great service. We have stayed busy with outreach efforts, Bible distribution, and Bible studies. The “dessert” has been seeing the spiritual growth in the lives of some of our faithful people. Igor has decided (on his on) to start wearing a tie for services and translation, Alen has stepped up to lead the music after Lucas is gone, several want to stay and sing after services, and Negus said recently that he prayed to make a decision in his heart to serve God! AMEN and AMEN. Poppa & Nonna are also very excited about how much are beautiful granddaughters are growing!

We appreciate your prayers & support very much!

Bro. Lowrie
