Earthquake Rocks Croatia

Image
  J ust received news that another earthquake has  Rocked Croatia   Just received word from many of our extended  H i S  PRINT Family and friends that Croatia was hit by another round of earthquakes. These, however hit much closer to those we love than the ones in April that hit near Zagreb; and did significant damage to homes,  businesses,  and streets in our home away from home Sisak and surrounding cities and villages. Praise God that the initial reports say no fatalities and very few injuries from the actual quakes, but the uneasiness and fear has caused anxiety among many.   I am reaching out to ask for your specific prayers for our brothers and sisters in Christ across this region and for prayers for the many friends we have made there who have been affected by this natural disaster. As I am typing  this,  I am getting reports from there that more quotes are happening. Many of the buildings there are very ,  very old and major damage can occur even with the smallest of earthquak

2020 Update: Global Reach

  Global Reach December 7, 2020   Below is a recap of what is going on today with the equipment provided by you through  H i S PRINT  in The Balkans, along with a look into the history of where this has come from, written by our In Country Discipler and native Croat, Stefan Birac: Receiving an email, phone call or text in regards to equipment is a privilege.  Growing up and playing baseball, here in Sisak Croatia, I remember we use to have only a dozen baseballs in the clubhouse, couple of bats, and gloves that needed some love. I remember having a glove that had jeans patched. Good times for sure. During practice, if someone would hit a foul ball, we all would stop the practice and go look for that ball. If it took 30 minutes to find it, we searched till it was found.  Today it is amazing to witness that Croatia has a Little League established.   Ten years ago, David offered full Little League equipment to suit up 4 teams.  It was like hitting a brick wall.  No one had the vision; Lit

  I started writing this blog multiple times and ended up writing something totally different than what I intended, which was to give you a ministry update. Actually, a lot has happened with me physically since I first started writing this blog in September. I went on a short trip up to Kansas City to meet with FCA on shipping needs they have and when I returned, I ended up in the ER with severe abdominal pain. I was admitted into the hospital and placed on IV antibiotics for the next 3 and a half days. Praise God the medicine worked, and surgery was avoided. So let’s get started with an update!  Houston Update A lot is going on with the ministry and we are so blessed to watch it all unfold. I am so excited about the next path God is illuminating before us, that I must contain myself and travel at His Pace and not my own.  Last month at our H i S PRINT Board meeting, it was so encouraging to be talking about local ministry for the first time, along with our global ministry. We are taki

Wasn’t sure how to share this with you all, but felt it needed to be shared, something that me and my sister and two brothers are extremely proud of.    This past Monday, August 24 our parents, Charles and Cora Moss, celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary! Yeah you read that correctly, 72 years of marriage. Since my folks live in Indiana near my older brother and we have recently had to move them into a full time care facility, most of the family was not able to celebrate this wonderful event with them. My Pop is 91 and in failing health. Pop has recently suffered some small strokes and is living in the hospital area during rehab, while mom is living in their small apartment. Because of this, they have not been able to spend much time together. But on this special day the staff bought flowers, decorated the chapel and wheeled Pop down to visit with Mom to celebrate their 72 years together. Although saddened that I was not able to attend, I was blessed immeasurably by the pictures ta

Coach Antonio Poljak Sisak, Croatia The H i S PRINT family, and me personally, are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear brother Coach Antonio Poljak in Sisak, Croatia. For several years, Coach Antonio served the ministry of H i S PRINT as our local in-country coach and the coach of the Sisak Storks Little League baseball team. Coach Antonio also served as our Croatia Warehouse Manager and shipping operator. He held that position until the middle of 2019. We would not have been able to help the thousands across The Balkans and Eastern Europe without Coach Antonio's hard work and organization. He was dedicated to everything he did and led with a servant's heart that was unmatched.    Coach Antonio served his country in war during the early 90's and was called into duty to serve with the Croatian army in Afghanistan for several months in 2009-10. He and his wife Tanja have two children: a daughter Ejla (22) and a son Borna (18.) Antonio walked this earth for 52 years and

I forgot to mention on my birthday post that this was the first year in 12 that I have spent my birthday at home in Texas (not overseas on a Mission Learning Opportunity in The Balkans.)  It was nice to be at home for a small, peaceful, quiet celebration.  Although I miss my brothers and sisters overseas and they have taken care of me on my birthday those 12 years, it was good to be with my bride and just veg on the couch!
