Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,

Thank you very much for your  continued prayers and support for us! We are so honored to be partnered with you in seeing this world reached with the Gospel.

In Bosnia they currently have three official languages; Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian.  Over the past few months linguists from Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, and Montenegro met to discuss recognizing officially that these nations speak basically the same language. So as it stands right now in the next few years when we are finished with language school Kathryn and I will go from speaking one language to five languages. Please pray with us that the Lord would work in this area in a mighty way and that some day there would be Gospel preachers in each of these countries.

Praises from February:

  • We drove 6,642 miles to present in 16 churches in PA, WV, AL, GA, VA, KY, and NC.
  • We had an increase of 4% support this month bringing us to 57%!
  • 5 new churches voted to take us on!

Prayer Requests:

  • Safety as we travel to present in churches.
  • That God would use us to be a blessing to the churches.
  • For ten churches to partner with us this month.

Bosnia Update:

Over the past month a new general from Austria took over the European oversight of Bosnia that was set up after the war in the 1990’s. This general has power over Bosnia and if he thought there was a movement towards war he has the power to send in troops or remove elected officials. Please pray that he will not have to use his power so that the Gospel might go forth!

Yours for Bosnia Herzegovina,

Micah and Kathryn Rastelli
