Idea: May Prayer Meal

During the month of May, our family will be learning and loving all things Serbia. While we’ve not been there (yet), a very special friend is living there and as we learn about that beautiful land and her people, we will also be celebrating our sweet friend who we miss and love big!

As I emailed with my friend about what kinds of food they eat, she shared that they don’t necessarily have a “meal” like we would think of, but there are some great dishes that we can prepare and maybe piece together for our May prayer meal. Here’s a few recipes that I found that sound yummy, different and fun.

Cevapi – a yummy sausage treat served on yummy bread, not a bun apparently!

Kiflice – who doesn’t love a croissant filled with yummy! I’m thinking I’ll make this easier by using pre-made croissant dough (don’t hate on me!)

Goulash – this looks yummy but as I sit on my porch in 80 degree weather, I’m thinking I’ll wait on this until fall – my friend will be living there for another year so we have plenty of time!

Vanilice – and a little yummy treat too!

As we enjoy the yummy Serbian delights, we will also be praying for that beautiful place which has captured our dear friend’s heart. Here are specific ways that you can join us in praying:

1. That many Serbians would be released from the bondage of “religion” and set free to a relationship with a Jesus Christ!

2. That our dear friend and her teammates, would have great success, focus, and opportunity in sharing the truth with their friends and neighbors.

3. That the gospel would take deep root in the hearts of all Serbians.

Have you had Serbian food before? What’s your favorite? Share your ideas and Serbia knowledge with us as we pray for Serbia and enjoy the yummy food and culture this month!

March Irish Meal Plan

img_4897.jpg

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up in a couple weeks, this month we will be focusing on Ireland and spending time praying for the work that is happening in Ireland as well as enjoying their yummy food. This would be a great month to dive in and welcome your little ones to “International food” as you might already be serving some of these yummy treats around your home and it might not be quite as “weird” as say Kefta or Tagine or Turkish food…

Facts about Ireland & St. Patrick’s Day

  • 91% of Ireland’s people are Christian yet only 1.33% claim to be evangelical 
  • Over 4 million people live in Ireland
  • 44 different people groups live there with five of those being unreached people groups.
  • St. Patrick was actually born in England but was kidnapped and set to Ireland at the age of 16. He escaped and returned to England; however, in a dream God told him to return to Ireland. He entered the priesthood and returned back to Ireland in 433AD where he died in 461AD after 30 years of missionary work.

Praying for Ireland

  1. Pray that the Gospel will penetrate hearts of those trapped in religion. 
  2. Pray for workers who are building relationships and working hard to share the gospel in this beautiful land.
  3. Pray that the work that St. Patrick began would continue and many would come to know Jesus Christ.
