    Dear praying friends,

    We hope that your celebration of Christmas was blessed by the Lord, and that the new year has started well for you. The Macedonian Christmas is actually celebrated on January 7th, in keeping with Eastern Orthodox tradition. Here New Years is a larger event than Christmas, with presents exchanged and a tree (‘elka’) decorated on January 1. On Christmas day, one tradition is the baking of a large loaf of bread called a Pogacha which contains a single coin. The bread is divided between family members, and the one who receives the coin is said to expect good luck in the coming year.

    * We have been pleased to be meeting up with new and old friends here in Skopje. Join us in praying for our neighbor as we seek to help her find peace and trust in God in the midst of some family tragedies in the past year.
