Here Goes!

Wow! This is my first ever post! I have no idea what to say. I'm really hoping friends and family from the states can keep up with our ministry in Croatia! I'm really sad I didn't do this before, because God has done so many miracles in this country. It's a shame I've not documented them all. Sometimes I stop and look back over the last 9 years, and I must say when I do I stand in awe of how big our God is! My family has served the Lord in Croatia for the last 9 years. At times it's been lonely for we're the only Independent Baptist missionaries in this whole country. For that matter we are the only independent Baptist missionaries in a 250 mile radius. However, God never promised a life of ease when He said, take up thy cross and follow me! I look back to what I was and now see who I am, and I must say, Lord here am I send me! What a joy to be in a life of service for the Lord. I've got the greatest boss ever!

I pray that through this blog many of you can take a journey with me. I want to share with you our victories and defeats, our joyful times and our sorrowful times, our times of great happiness and our times of great depression! So I hope you will come along with me, and learn what it's like to have a life in the field!

Brother Johnny
