May Update

Dear Prayer supporters around the world, my apologies for a long pause, I did write a report but it seems to have vanished into mid air. My last trip to Serbia (a few months ago now) was filled with blessings and encouragement as always, we know that when God is working the devil will do everything to put obstacles in the way, this time was no exceptions.

Celebrating the life of George Verwer

I met George for the first time in November 1962 here in the United Kingdom, a meeting that changed my life for ever. His passion to share the love of God with Europe and then the world just flowed from him for many, his message was radical but very meaningful.

In early 1962 he was arrested in Russia and caused a political storm between Russia and the USA, he was then banned and so was his prayer 'Here I am send others', and others did go. Many will remember George traveling the world and sharing the passion God had given him. Very few will know that when not traveling or taking meetings or at home or with his wife Drena, he would spend time visiting the sick in their homes or hospital, he also had the gift for visiting people in prison.

George was not only interested in Operation Mobilisation but also for all mission groups and individuals. There is much more I could say but, in closing Thank you Drena for the support you gave to George, he spent so much time away from you and the family. Thank you Benjamin, Daniel and Christa Thank you Lord for such a faithful servant - Tony.

"How to be Saved"

The booklet shown, “How to be saved” is in great demand here and a reprint has already gone to the printers. Villages around Backa Palanka continue to be visited with gospel tracts, and soon a door to door will commence.

Spiritual Growth: - Last Sunday it was a joy to see a young teenager stand up in church and acknowledge Jesus as her Saviour before she gets baptised shortly. Driving further north, it was a joy to visit a Methodist Church and see the growth there of new people joining the church, then it was a few days in the refugee camp and a number of good conversations with the refugees.

Back to Backa Palanka, there was no bible study as sickness hit a number of members, but I was able to have a one to one with a Christian businessman over coffee in the warm spring sunshine. We concluded by visiting a fortress overlooking Novi Sad and praying over the city. Keep praying for the work here and elsewhere, prayers are being answered. God Bless - Tony.

Update - March 2023

Today, I spent the morning with around 150 Ukrainian people, it was a spiritual, social, food bank and many other things to help make their life a little better here in the UK. The joy I had in talking with people about Our Saviour and giving them Bibles in their own language and also the booklet The Missing Peace. Many good contacts were made, and the follow-up work will begin in three weeks.
Why three weeks? I leave for Serbia on Wednesday 15th, a heavy programme plus spending time in the refugee camp, thank you for your prayers. Two weeks ago I heard a lovely story of a man travelling on a ferry to Ireland, in the restaurant while having coffee, a man came and sat with him, and he just want to know more about God. A Muslim overheard the conversation, and he too wanted to know more. God answers Prayer – Thank you for your prayers – Brother Tony.

Feb 2023 Update

Dear Prayer Warriors around the world, thank you for your continued prayers and interest in the work of Global Passion and other groups that we are associated with.

In the Balkans, January is quite a quiet month with snow and temperatures dropping to below zero but more on that in a moment. I had the privilege to spend January in the warmer climates of Australia visiting my son and his family, relaxing, swimming and recharging my batteries (as we say here in England) and returning home refreshed. It was a wonderful time but the work in the Balkans and Worldwide, was never far from my thoughts, my heart and my prayers.

Catching up with all that has been going on has been encouraging and seeing many answers to prayer. Through the winter the programme for a Gospel In every Home has continued and many people are requesting more literature. The unsaved are making contact and want to know more, Praise the Lord

We praise God that the booklet The Missing Peace is now printed in Russian and Ukrainian and available here in the UK.  Also a large amount will be printed in Russian and Ukrainian in Europe.

Please continue to pray for the Balkans, it has been in the news a great deal lately and the situation is still quite volatile. But we continue with His guiding Hand and go forth in His Name. God bless you where ever you are, Brother Tony.
