Our student, Aleksandar Vladisavljev (1976-1916)

    On the 31st of March, after a short and very difficult illness, our dear student and brother in Christ Aleksandar died. He was in his forties. The funeral was held in Novi Sad, Serbia, Aleksandar’s hometown. Some of our students and other representatives of the Institute were there. On the 11th of April, a students’ worship service was held at the Institute as a remembrance of Aleksandar. With deep sorrow in the hearts of many among us, we still have hope that one day we will see our friend again, together with our Lord.

New project - Bible for Youth

As a continuation of the project of giving away Children’s Bibles to the children of the lower grades of elementary schools, there was a need for translating a Bible for Youth into the Croatian language. This Bible is intended for children in 6th to 8th grades. In Croatia those grades are the upper grades of our elementary schools. Biblijski institut will also work to help with the distribution of those Bibles, so that many kids will receive their Bible.
