Preporod at International Book Fair in Belgrade 2019

The 64th International Book Fair hosted over 195,000 visitors, 20-27 October. The Seventh-day Adventist Publishing House, Preporod, traditionally takes part and every year records significant sales growth. For them, the Book Fair is a significant missionary project and a special place to meet people who long for biblical truths and books that will lift their thoughts to something beautiful, eternal, exalted and everlasting.

Preporod at Belgrade Book Fair 2019As an alternative to many of the secular ideologies available, Preporod offer books that will enhance people’s everyday life. These include books about health, spirituality, life experiences, as well as children’s and positive psychological literature. Saša Todoran, who has recently taken over leadership of the publishing house, states that “We are especially grateful to God because He is working on human hearts and is preparing people to make big decisions with eternal consequences.”

Many customers from previous years returned commenting how much they have enjoyed previous purchases and that they “read our books with pleasure”. This then led to more sales with over 2,000 books sold during the duration of the fair.

The entire team at Preporod, along with the leadership of the South-East European Union, are grateful for God’s guidance and care in this initiative as they use their skills to share His message of love.
