|Sphinx in Split|
|Elder Winfield and Lovre Kolega|
We were able to meet Mišo Ostarčević and his wife Ankica at church last Sunday. Mišo is a Olympic Gold Medalist who played for the former Yugoslavia basketball team and was also a NBA scout for the Boston Celtics. He was a close friend of Krešimir Čosič who was the first member of the LDS church in Croatia. The Ostarčević's were baptized by Krešimir in 1974. They live in St. George, Utah, but also have a home in Zadar where they come back to stay every summer. They have a grandson in Utah who is preparing to serve a mission. Ankica told me that he would love to serve in his grandparent's homeland of Croatia. With Krešimir's influence and example, church members of the ANM (Adriatic North Mission) will grow to multiple generations who will serve the Lord by going on missions. This ripple effect will continue because of one man's decision to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Remarkable, isn't it? We think so.
