* One of the Christian women I have been meeting with for coffee regularly has decided to be baptized at our baptism service on August 6th. She´s a student at the Evangelical Academy and has become a part of our fellowship this year. Be praying for her as she has some important decisions to make in the next two months.
* Please be praying for Brenda and the missionaries in Greater Europe Mission who will be having their annual conference in Slovenia from August 5-9. Pray that they will be refreshed through the singing, fellowship and preaching of God´s Word during the few days away from their ministries.
Thank you for praying for the summer team we had working in Klosterneuburg in May. There was a good response to the special evangelistic outreaches that were planned. The mission team raised the level of visibility in the community for the church and reached out to many people with invitations our special meetings and church services. One of the Austrian men had just one invitation to the evangelistic gardening program left. A lady came out of her house just as he was finishing. He asked her if she would like the last invitation to the gardening meeting. She ended up coming to the meeting and sitting right in front of me. Raphaela and I both each had an opportunity to talk with her. In the end I invited her to come to the following Sunday´s church service. Continue to pray for the follow-up in July. Pray that those that visited our services will come back during the month of July to get to know us better.
* Thank you for praying that the family who were a part of Joe´s Bible study would come to the Easter service. It ended up that the father and son came to the service along with my son.
* Thank you also for your prayers for the church team we had during the last two weeks of May working in Klosterneuburg. Please pray for the follow-up we´ll be having during the month of June with the new people we met through the team.
