|Dejan & Renata|
By the way, if you take a look at the picture of Dejan and his wife Renata and daughter Bianca, it is hard to believe that at some point he had lost hope. It is hard to believe that most people did not believe he had a future. He is living proof that with God all things are possible! His life is one of the many reasons why we sponsor Teen Challenge programs. Each human life is precious and it gives us great joy to see lives restored.

Anyway, Dejan's dad and brother made new beds for the Dennis Griffith House. We drove up to the mountain village where they live to visit them and to see the work shop. The beds are custom made, beautiful old fashioned quality that is hard to find nowadays. They will last a long time, no doubt. We decided to help Teen Challenge Slovenia to pay the bill for the new beds. They were 650 euro short of the total bill. We have donated that amount last week. Thank you everyone for your faithful gifts. By the way, Jan is planning to go to Slovenia again later this month.
We just LOVE practical projects such as this one. It is even better when local businesses can benefit as well. The men in the program (who sometimes slept on the streets for years) are happy with the new beds and Dejan's family did a great job.

Don't forget our current projects:
* We need 3,500 euro for the purchase of a passenger van for Teen Challenge Netherlands
* For 20 euro (25 dollar) you can send someone in Ukraine to summer camp
