Royal Rangers Slovenia
Celebrating 10 Years!
November 06, 2019

Dearest friends,
As we started the last year of our first term here in Slovenia, we wanted to highlight a couple of the ministries that we feel called to go deeper with in our second term. We have been blessed to be involved in many different programs, and want you to get as excited as we are about what God is doing in Slovenia - especially in the next generation!

Local Royal Rangers Outpost

Our first step in getting involved with Royal Rangers came about when Dan first started volunteering at the Royal Rangers outpost in Ljubljana, the city we live in. (Dan grew up in Royal Rangers in his home church, Christian Heritage in Avon, OH.) Royal Rangers here in Slovenia is open to boys and girls, and the age range is 4-14. Dan is the leader for the oldest group, and often leads the object lesson portion of the meeting. Our son, Aidan was thrilled to get to attend this past year too! His favorite part is grilling hot dogs.

Royal Rangers Tabor/Camp

Isn't God's timing such a beautiful thing? This past summer, Slovenia celebrated 10 years of Royal Rangers! Dan went to camp as one of the counselors, and was asked to lead the morning devotions for the leaders. Thankfully everyone stayed safe, and other than some rain that got in a couple pavilions, it was a spectacular time! Dan came home singing all kinds of Slovene chants and songs! A number of the kids who attend Royal Rangers come from unchurched backgrounds. Slovenes typically have active and "outdoorsy" lifestyles, so they are eager to have their children involved in these types of activities. What an open door for the Gospel! (The very top picture is the group shot from camp.)

Thank you

From the bottoms of our hearts, thank you for allowing us to live and minister to the Slovenian people. Thank you for believing in the great things God has in store here. May God bless you!

NTC/JLTC Training

This past spring, Dan was able to complete his NTC training, and become the first American to be certified here in Slovenia. It was a grueling experience, but built a true camaraderie between all of the national Royal Rangers leaders - new and old. The top picture shows the leaders from the Ljubljana outpost - Mišo, Dan and Petra.

Coming Up!

Because of Dan's certification, we are now able to start a new outpost anywhere in Slovenia. The church in Ptuj (many of you will remember this city from other newsletters) has already expressed a desire for a local outpost at their church. The church in Ptuj is very evangelistically minded, and is excited for any program designed to reach the lost - especially families. Please be praying with us that doors would open up for this desire to become a reality!

How can you help?

Royal Rangers has opened up so many doors for us - to positively impact the local church, as well as a great program to invite our friends with kids to. It has such a hands-on way of relaying the Gospel to children that lasts them a lifetime. If you would like to support Royal Rangers in Slovenia, specifically the start of the new outpost in Ptuj, please let us know! We would be more than happy to help you designate donations, or give you specific prayer requests.
