Springing Into Action

Since we've lived in Orahovica, there has never been a lack of things to do - which was one of the things that confirmed our calling in the first place.  There has been a growing list of opportunities both in the church and the community that are well worth our time and effort. 

Never has that been more apparent than this spring. With the wonderful news that camps will return to Orahovica comes a new set of challenges for Petra.  A growing baseball team means that Jeremy can invest more time into training kids and teenagers who are over the initial hump of learning the basics.  Two expanding youth groups give us new opportunities to disciple teenagers at various points in their spiritual lives.

We count it a privilege to be busy.  God is a God of action.  From his call to Moses, to Jesus' command to his disciples, God has always urged us to "go!" as we obey the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19).

But Jesus also withdrew at times during his ministry on earth (Matthew 14:23).  He told us to go into our closets and close the door when we pray (Matthew 6:6).  Taking time to be in the Word and in prayer is even more important to our call to make disciples than all the other activities we are involved in.  It's also a greater challenge. 

So as we continue our ministry in Orahovica, we ask you to pray for our spiritual state.  Pray that we would be refreshed as we seek to be salt and light in the community.

As always, thank you for your support.  We are convinced that we could not be working here if it were not for your partnership in ministry.  

In Christ,

Jeremy, Petra, Enoh and Ian Bohall
