Chad and Lauri went to Serbia
By Chad Lackey
Lauri and I felt called to visit Serbia and Montenegro in December, 2017. Our purpose was to come along beside our hosts Samuil Petrovski and Danjiel Petkovski in service and ministry as needed, but God had much more in mind. It started when our flights to Belgrade were delayed and Lauri met a young man from Moscow. God provided her the opportunity to share Jesus with him and they have been in communication since.
In Belgrade, we met with students, business professionals, diplomats and many others to share the gospel. In addition, Chad spoke at the International Christian Fellowship twice, a Roma church once and two times at EUS (Evangelical University Students) meetings. We also visited Novi Sad in Serbia where we met with students and missionaries that serve there. In Montenegro, we stayed with Danjiel and his wife Martina and their two children and had an amazing time of fellowship. We met with pastors, students and Christian taxi drivers while in Montenegro. We also visited Kotor, a town with buildings built in the 900s AD. It was spectacular.
We were richly blessed on this trip. Several times God intervened miraculously to allow Lauri to stay in places she normally could not (due to her allergy and severe asthma combination). In addition, we saw two men come to the Lord. One was a business professional in Belgrade and the other a student in Montenegro. God is GOOD! We were hosted in in Belgrade by an inspirational British couple living on mission in Belgrade.
