Sandi Radoja sent the following message in an effort to help the nuns at the Nativity of the Mother of God Monastery.

The pictures above are of a Tiger Truck, and we are appealing to you to help deliver one to the Nativity of the Mother of God Monastery in New Carlisle, Indiana. The nuns there maintain and farm several acres surrounding the church and nunnery. The Tiger Truck would greatly help them in their daily chores.
When Dave Tumbas, Chief Financial Officer for Hy-Tek Material Handling, Inc., in Columbus, Ohio, read a story in the American Srbobran, he realized how much the Tiger Truck would help the nuns. He went to his company and solicited a donation. The entire cost is $11,000. Hy-Tek said they would donate the first $4,000.
Tumbas pledged to match every donation to raise the remaining cost.
This means we have a $3,500 challenge.
Please send your donation today for the Tiger Truck. Make checks payable to
NATIVITY OF MOTHER OF GOD MONASTERY

Tumbas will deliver the truck as soon as the $3,500 goal is met. (If donations exceed $3,500 excess money will also go to the Monastery.) A story will appear in the American Srbobran when the truck is delivered to New Carlisle.
We would like to meet our goal before April 15, 2011 so the Tiger Truck will be delivered before the planting season. Thanks for your interest, and we hope to hear from you with a donation in any amount.
In case you missed the final game of this year's basketball tournament, you can watch it now. Fr. Marko Matic opened the game with a prayer, followed by National Anthems. Thanks to all players from both teams for an exciting game.

The next issue of the SRBOBRAN will have photos and results from all game divisions plus trophy winners.
The doors of the Iconostasis and Church are left open during the entire Liturgy on Easter Sunday, proclaiming the "Light and Joy of the Resurrection". At the conclusion of Divine Liturgy the priest proclaims "Christ is Risen!" and the people respond "Indeed, He is Risen!". Also sung throughout the service is The Paschal Troparion, the Great Hymn of the Resurrection of Christ. This Great Hymn of Pascha will be sung repeatedly in the weeks to come.

Dressed in their Sunday best, three and four generations of families attended Divine Liturgy on Easter. Beba Rudman and Zoran Andrich passed out colorful Easter eggs that were donated by Kolo Sisters.
Look who was busy in an Easter egg challenge in Florida? Our very own Father John and Protinica Mirijana were happy to compete. You may also recognize the Nogulich's, Mihajlovich's, and Peter Puhar! Florida photos provided by Jelena Mulin.
Hristos Voskrese! Christ Is Risen! Indeed He Is Risen!
