On Saturday, Sept. the second, five of us, Elias and Elpida Aigiptiades, Lyn Kern, Darlene Rushdoony and I, in two cars packed with clothes and food, went to Saraj, Skopje (Former Republic of Macedonia) to see the children sponsored by the Macedonian Outreach. In addition, we visited the suburb of Volkovo where Sokrat is the pastor and where we sponsor many children. Everyone but especially the children welcomed us with great joy and excitement.
I praise God for His love for these children and their community! God has blessed them and continues to bless them daily. I am grateful for all the sponsors that the Lord provided for these kids that not only provide education to them but also the means for them to learn how they can give their lives to Jesus. God bless you one and all. It thrills my heart to see that many children have already met Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord.
Sokrat, on the left, is Aleksander’s father. Alex, as we call him, is the young man that we support in seminary in Aberdeen, Scotland. Even though Alex is legally blind, he is a wonderful Christian man who with determination finished all his schooling including higher education and today he is working on his doctorate in a very difficult area of study, OLD TESTAMENT STUDIES WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH. We are very proud of him as he is finishing this year doing four years in three. Pray for Alex for the Lord to use him to His glory!
Alex preached on Sunday the 3rd in Volkovo, his father’s church. It was very sweet to watch the proud father translating for his congregation in Macedonian as Alex spoke in English so we could also understand. Praise God for the joy He gives us as we reap some of the fruit of our labor on this side of heaven!
The young people of the church in Volkovo. Please be praying for this church. The building is half finished but they cannot continue building because they are still waiting for the permit to operate as a church. They filed their papers five years ago.
This is the fourth year that Lyn has fundraised to buy school supplies for our children in Saraj. And this year again with joy she gave out forty backpacks full with school supplies. Sunday afternoon, Sept. the 3rd, was a day of celebration! Thank you from all of us as well at The Macedonian Outreach for supporting Lyn to once again bring joy in this extremely poor ghetto!
