Hello Family and Friends!
Peter and his sister want to get baptized! we had a lesson with them on tuseday about prayer and it was awesome! everyone prayes to Mary here so we told them that we talk about her in church as the mother of Jesus, but we dont worship her cause she did not pay the biggest price and pay for our sins. And we taked about how in the bible the comandment is not to worship idels and thats also why we dont pray to a statue of her. Next thing u know we were all kneeling and the kid were a littlle nervous then peter said "wait" we start off by saying our "Heavenly father" cause he is the father of everthing, then we thank him, then we ask for help, and then we say "in the name of jesus christ amen" cause he is our savior".. then after that he said the most beautiful prayer as a smile lit up his face! then is sister wanted to try and man, they were all so happy after. Peter was giving his sister a hi 5 cause he was like that was so good and so did the member, vanja, who was also there helping out! PS vanja has not smoked in 4 days through the stop smoking program! poor thing she is so sick of grapfruit ahha! but anyways so that night we invited them to pray on their own about if this church was true and andrijana said when she was sleeping she had a dream that she was talking with us on the street! she was like i am pretty sure that was my answer! man i got the chills when she said that becuase god is there to help us and when we pray he will answer our desires! Sunday even though it was raning (and had been all week)we had 4 invesigators at church!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well i am still with my companion and staying here for another 6 weeks! im so happy cause i love it so much here in varaždin!
Get this... i saw les misrables in Croatin cause for 5 dallars here cause our friend aka our potential investigator was in the musical and she really wanted us to support her so we got to see it! it was so good and the the voices were awesome!
