In July Proclaim! celebrated the 20th year of Mercy Street Rhythm and Blues band, with a ministry tour Croatia and Serbia. Mercy Street Rhythm and Blues was originally created to minister in open air concerts all across former Yugoslavia. This ministry team, including the reuniting of some original members, performed and proclaimed in city squares and public venues in a record-breaking Europe heat wave!
This last concert of the tour was in Subotica, Serbia — familiar territory for Mercy Street through the past 20 years. Proclaim!-Croatia (Ima Nade) Director Branko Kovačević says this was the largest crowd to date at an event there, resulting in more new contacts for the church. Thanks to God’s faithfulness, and our prayer and donation partners, Proclaim has had a history of co-laboring in countries like Croatia and Serbia as God builds His church around the world.
