Miracle upon miracle

Hey sweet friends,
Today’s blog post is from Rosilind,  director of our Good Morning Girls- Croatian, Bosnian & Serbian branch. I can’t wait for you to read her amazing testimony of how God is working in that area of our world!

No words can adequately describe the feeling I have as I look back on the past 2 years of leading Good Morning Girls – Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia. I am more convinced than ever before that literally nothing is beyond His power to reach this region formerly known as Yugoslavia.

In the fall of 2010 when I stumbled upon this blog: Good Morning Girls. I had been searching for an online Bible Study for a few years and had been unsuccessful in finding one that I felt really ministered and encouraged me. I decided to join up.  And that first session was wonderful, since then I have taken part in their studies each season.

Then I began praying about starting a Croatian/Bosnian chapter of Good Morning Girls.  I really felt God placing it on my heart. I have a real desire to reach out to women, and this would be a great way of reaching out to women that fit perfectly with my family’s unusual lifestyle and schedule. Soon a small group of 12 ladies from my congregation in Croatia joined the study.

A year later, after wrestling over whether to break during the summer book study, the Lord impressed on me to keep going. So I did, even though in my heart I thought, “It’s summer time. Who is going to want to do a study while on vacation?”

That’s when our small group of a dozen ladies exploded to over 100 and beyond the borders of Croatia into Bosnia and Serbia.

 Doing the James study last summer!
 

Over the past year, I have met with and emailed many of the women in our groups and this is what they’ve said to me:

“Good Morning Girls is the first study of its kind to come to this region.”

“I live in a region where there is no church close by for me to attend on a regular basis. Good Morning Girls has given me the encouragement and fellowship I need to stay strong in the Lord.”

“Please, please, please never stop leading these studies!”

Our children learning about Jesus from the GMG Kids studies!

And this from one of our leaders:

“Good Morning Girls has been a blessing to me since the day I joined a year ago. It opened the door to meet new sisters in the Lord who have been a great encouragement to me. Regular study with the SOAP method has brought me back to a new, healthy way of studying God’s Word, which I love with all my heart. Good Morning Girls has become such an integral part of my life that I no longer spend a lot of time on my Facebook wall. I spend most of my time on Facebook in my group, sharing together with the ladies and praying with them. My faith is stronger, my time with the Lord fuller and life with my family calmer. I am thankful to God for this way of fellowship and study of the Bible.”

Two years ago, I was desperately crying out to God for an avenue to minister. Like Edurne, most of my time is spent at home with my children and I honestly didn’t see that I had any value as a missionary. God opened the door for me to reach into regions where I will likely never be able to go and offer them them the fellowship and encouragement they are desperate for.

We now have six leaders, a full team of translators, a full team for graphics, and 115 women from Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia studying the Word together.  We have started a blog where we translate the blog posts from the studies and a Facebook page with almost 200 likes.

It started out as simple act of faith to encourage the women in my small congregation, that in a year’s time would envelop an entire region.

Miracle upon miracle.

There is no greater joy nor anything more satisfying than seeing women’s lives turned upside down for Jesus Christ.

That is the greatest miracle of all!

    Hi, Ladies! I live in Russia and I have been participating in GMG studies since last September. I speak English, but some of my friends don’t. I saw some reading plans and study guides in Russian, but couldn’t find any blog posts or groups or chats in Russian. Do they exist? Can I find any page where my friends can follow the study?
    Thank you for doing this! God bless you!

    • Ohh sweet Natalia!!

      How I love to hear from you!:) We do have a Russian translator but at this time we don’t have a Russian GMG branch started at this time. :) (wink, wink) If this is something that God lays on your heart and you’d like to discuss it further, please contact me at LoveGodGreatly@gmail.com. :) I’d be more than happy to speak with you!!! :) Much love!

  5. Rosilind, I absolutely love the title of this post. Thanks for sharing your story with us. It’s so awesome how God is knitting our hearts together all around the world as we dig into the Word together. Yay! Praying for my sisters in Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia today. Hugs
