Preaching in Vinkovci, Toma Magda is translating
One of the most important things we do in Croatia is affirm and bless the work that God is doing through these people. They work long hours and turn multitasking into an art form. While riding with Toma Magda today, I asked him about all the things he does in "ministry." He serves as the President of the Croatian Baptist Union, directs and oversees the Pastoral Center, works with the church that meets here at the center, and helps his wife direct the training institute they have for lay people. He's also a husband and father of four. And I thought I had a busy life!

Our hosts have taken the group to see a beautiful lakeside national park. Some of our group are also traveling to Rijeka to see the coastline.

Tonight, Mike Cunningham will teach two sessions on unity at the Pastoral Center in Cakovec. Tomorrow, Bill will preach in Rijeka and lead a session on how the church can "move outside the walls" for ministry. Mike will be preaching in Puscine in the morning and teaching at the Pastoral Center in Cakovec tomorrow evening.

On Monday, we begin hauling materials, painting walls, laying tile, and hanging doors.
