Hello, My name is Roger Massey and I heard of you through our mutual friends, Kyle and Susan Bratcher, missionaries serving in Germany and Tom and Sandra Sibley in Croatia. God bless you. I was glad when I heard about what you have planned. I lived in Croatia 15 years and if I had my way, I would be there still, but that is a long, long story for another time. I learned today that you will move into the house next door to the Sibleys and that they will look after your boys while you are in language school. Good for you! The Sibleys were surrogate grandparents to our kids and our kids, now 15, 20 and 22 still adore them as much as they do their biological g-parents. I am sure your boys will too. I considered both Tom and Sandra mentors ... people who I could really talk to... while I was there. Jagnic Dol is a lovely spot, (even though our house in Mala Gorica ... 2 kilometers away... is a gem as well!) I know that you will be happy there and your boys will have lots of room to grow and roam. I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you well on your journey and to let you know that I am praying that the Lord will provide both here and there for a long and fruitful ministry. Croatia is a really good place to raise kids. My children miss it and are sincerely thankful they had that opportunity. It shaped them in ways that makes them different from many of their peers ... different in a very refreshing way. Get ready to make some of the best friends you'll ever have! Everything good to you all and may our good God lead the way for you, provide for you, make things clear to you, reveal his beauty to you in new and wonderful ways, and may he open doors for ministry for you that lead you to people of peace ... those golden disciples who will be key entry points to the kingdom for many, many others. May the Lord give you all you need for today.
