In Serbia, evangelical Christians represent less than 0.1% of the population and churches are often small, insular and divided. There is a great need for practical training and resources to equip church members and leaders.
Project Timothy meets this need by providing resources and training for Serbian churches. As well as training new church leaders for preaching, evangelism and discipleship, Project Timothy translates and publishes materials that will enable many more to be trained. Many of the new church plants that are being established are in isolated, lonely regions of Serbia where there are often no other evangelical Christians. Project Timothy helps these churches by providing tools, courses and training programmes.
Project Timothy was set up by Crosslinks mission partners but it is now led by local Riste Micev. He is assisted by Matej Delac, who heads up the project’s translation work. Teodora Micev (Riste’s wife) also works for PT, helping Matej with the translation work and discipling women
Dear partners in the Gospel,
We hope you all are well and strong in the Lord.
First of all, here is a bit about us personally. Ivona has been doing really well. We went to the doctor's for her 12 week appointment and vaccination last week. She weighs 14 pounds and is 63.5 cm long. She has been sleeping well at night, although not so well by day. Her nap time is definitely something we have to work on but we're getting there. So please pray for our family life. Pray that she would continue making progress and hitting milestones. Pray for patience and wisdom for us as we raise her, both for her and for each other. Normally in Serbia, first time parents tend to have huge help by grandparents, which is not the case for us. As you know, my family lives in Macedonia and Tea's mother passed away five years ago. The rest of her family are busy with their own work most of the time so we're pretty much on our own. This is definitely something that God is using to stretch us, but we're excited to see what the future brings and how we'll all grow together in this. Time with God is especially challenging these days. Pray that we would find time and energy for that very most important thing in our lives even though caring for our little one can be so time consuming and tiring. Nevertheless, we cannot thank God enough for giving us in her the most wonderful present we could imagine!
