July Update

Every year since Petra was a child, July has meant camp season in Orahovica. This summer is no different. As we turn the calendar, normal activities are exchanged for registration forms, building preparation and lots of phone calls.

This year Jeremy has a more direct role in camps. During Teen Camp he will be speaking with the teenagers every morning about what it means for young people in Croatia to live in light Christ's victory. Paul's letter to the Ephesians, especially chapter two, will be the basis of his messages.

Jeremy will also be a leader at Young Adult Camp while Petra will continue working on the logistical side of Children's Camps. Please pray not only for wisdom and direction for us, but also that that Lord would draw each camper closer to Himself.

Sunday, June 30th was a special day for our family as we dedicated David to the Lord. His deda (Peter) and our pastor prayed over him while many other Kuzmič's joined the celebration. We are thankful for our local church who pray and partner with us in our endeavor to raise godly children. Our prayer for each of our children is that they would walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).

July also brings change to the country we live in. On the first of July, Croatia joined the European Union. While there are many implications, most of the changes won't come overnight. Go here to read more about what this will mean for Croatia and the EU.

Though in many ways this change means "progress" for the country, we are reminded that true progress comes only through the profound grace of God. Indeed, the environment that we are working in is changing but our mission of introducing our friends to Jesus Christ and teaching them to be his disciples remains the same.

We are thankful for your partnership in what the Lord is doing in Croatia. If you would like more information, please send an email to jeremy.bohall@gmail.com.

In Christ,

About Us

We are the Bohalls - Jeremy, Petra and Enoh, Ian, Emily and David. We've been living and serving in Orahovica, Croatia since 2007.

Our aim, put simply, is to glorify the Lord by endeavoring to make disciples of Jesus Christ. As followers of Christ we have experienced His grace in our lives and are passionate about sharing His love with others.

From a practical standpoint we see ourselves as a bridge between the church and community. This is where we've witnessed the Lord's sovereignty in our lives and ministry. He has directed our paths to Orahovica and provided us with tools that we are able to use practically to benefit the local community and worship the Lord.

Rather than list the various ways we've been able to do so, we invite you to stay updated on what God is doing through our ministry. If there are any ways we can better communicate with you, please let us know. Feedback is always welcome.

Your partners in ministry,

The Bohall Family
