Here We Come!
May 31, 2021


Pozdravljeni, dragi prijatelji!
(hello, dear firends)


Well, we are in the home stretch of our first term (4 years) in Slovenia. The kids have 9 days of school left, and we leave for Florida on June 13th. We are wrapping up projects, making arrangements for our Speed the Light vehicle and our home, packing up, and saying "se vidimo"/"see you later" to our friends and neighbors. As we put a pause on on our lives in Slovenia and prepare for an extended time the US, we would love to give you one last update from this side of the world.

PenFlorida District Council

Dan was able to travel back to the States for a short visit this month to attend our very own PenFlorida District Council. It was such a blessing to see so many of you! It was also especially exciting to see friends' ordination service, and celebrate our wonderful Superintendent, Terry Raburn's 20th anniversary in that role. Thank you so much to those of you who booked services with us, and even joined our Hope4Slovenia team as monthly supporters.
On that note, we would like to announce that we are now booking services from August 2021 through March 2022. We would love to be able to connect with you - through a service, over lunch or coffee, or even through Zoom! Please feel free to reach out to us at Hope4Slovenia@gmail.com, we are excited to share about what God is doing in Slovenia!

Easter

Last year our friends at Oceanway Church generously sent us some Easter eggs. In 2020 and this year again, official gatherings were not allowed during the holidays, however we invited the kids living on our street to an Easter Eggs Hunt, and had so much fun!

For our church families we prepared Resurrection Egg sets (using those same eggs) with a verse and "surprise" for them to open each day of Holy Week. This was a great way to do something "together" even though we couldn't actually meet at the time. 

Our Team Is Growing!

Please join us in welcoming Audrey and Tyler Wiese to our Hope4Slovenia team! Audrey and Tyler have answered God's call in their lives to serve the people of Slovenia alongside us. They are currently raising support to join us for a 2-year term as missionary associates. They will be helping us with English Club, Royal Rangers, and all of the other ministries that we are a part of. They will be vital to our work here in Slovenia, and we ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with them through prayer and financial support. Their AGWM account number is #2928141. We are so excited to be working with them!

Izvir Cerkev

We are thankful that we are once again able to meet in person, and at full capacity at our home church here in Ptuj, Izvir Cerkev. To prepare for this shift we had a church cleaning day and painted a wall art in the nursery room (you may remember last year's matching cross in the Sunday school room). It is such a blessing to worship together and in person once again!

Saying "Se Vidimo"

Although we are very much looking forward to seeing all of you shortly, on this end we are needing to say "se vidimo"/"see you soon" to our friends. This past weekend we hosted a church leadership meeting, which was especially exciting, because we haven't been able to gather together like this for over a year. We enjoyed great food and fellowship, as well as presenting to our church family the ministry opportunities we will be sharing about and fundraising for. They unanimously joined us in agreement and excitement. We leave with their love and blessing, for which we are very thankful!

Prayer Requests

Please be praying for us as we are traveling back to the States - especially for our two small children, Aidan (7) and Jocelyn (2). They are experiencing a lot of transitions and goodbyes. Our son was 3 when we moved to Slovenia, and our daughter was born here, so there is a lot of "newness" in store for them. Please pray that God would give all of us a sense of peace and joy during our time in the States.
Also, please join us in praying that God would open all the necessary doors for us to be able to have a blessed time during itineration, and that we would be able to return to Slovenia quickly.

Thank you
