September 2017

With God’s help during this time, I was able to serve the brothers and sisters, and anyone else we connected with. May the Lord be praised for all the opportunities he gives us. Through the grace of God, this new school year I was again invited to teach at the public school in the Village of Nou. I say this is grace because I am able to take the Word of God into the world where it needs to be made known.

I believe it is God who opened this door, and I pray that God would use me at the school to be a blessing for the students and the teachers. This year I have nine classes from first to eighth grade. One of the best things is that we have the freedom to create the curriculum without other impositions. In this way we can go in with the Bible, open and read it, and learn the truths for our life. We then learn songs by which we bring praise to the Lord; we learn to pray together asking the Lord for wisdom and help. It is wonderful to see how a class of students memorize and recite “Our Father” and sing God’s praises. Another wonderful thing is to be able to open the Bible for the teachers, and to provide answers to various problems. We pray that the Lord would work and make this Word fruitful in the hearts of children and teachers.

Another joy is that we can help many families in Nou, to send their children after the 8th grade to learn a vocation or to go to high school. We pay their transportation by bus every month.

I was surprised to see this year that the Lord put it on the heart of many churches and associations to help with necessary funds. We thank the Gracespring Church for the help they sent, and we pray that the Lord would bless you. We meet with these students every week, to teach the Word of God, sing together and pray for them and their families. There is a great opportunity that weekly we would have 20 youth from non-believing families, who can be exposed to the truth of God. May the name of Lord be blessed! May He work in their heart to know Him as personal Savior!

Thank you. God bless you for everything you do for us.

I want to thank God for the richness of His grace on us this month. We are so glad to announce that we had the first wedding in our family. We believe that, according to the Word of God, He makes all things beautiful in their own time. Andrei, one of our sons, was blessed with a wonderful wife, Ema. She is a gift from God for Andrei and for our family. “Any good and perfect gift comes from the  Father of Lights.” Praise His Name! We had a great time at the weeding and at the reception. We pray that God would keep them in His love all their life, and that they would be a good example for other families.

At church, we are glad that God adds to the number of the saved, and we pray that He would keep us all in His grace. After the baptism last month, the Lord brought a new atmosphere in our worship team. Sister Anita who was baptized, joined this team and is filled with joy and enthusiasm to serve in this way. All the others are sharing this joy. We pray that the Lord would bless them all and that their serving would praise the Lord and would determine others to glorify Him with all their heart.

Prayer Requests:

-           For Andrei and Ema, that the Lord would be with them in their marriage

-           For the worship team, to remain enthusiastic in this ministry

-           For the sick: Brother Nicolae (has both legs amputated) to remain faithful even in this difficult situation; for Brother Ghita (who hardly can see anymore) to be helped by his family

 

Thanks for all your support, and we pray that the Lord would bless your ministry.

July 2017

With God’s help, we organized another evangelistic event in the public school, through which we showed the love of God to students and teachers. Each of the 200 students received a packet of food items and school supplies. Everyone knew that this act of love comes from God who cares for all our needs. We had an open door with the teachers; we talked with them about the goodness of God toward all people. The fact that we were welcome in the school is also an act of God who works in amazing ways.

April 2017

Celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus was a blessed time, through everything that took place in church and outside. The days before Easter were days when we got closer to the Lord through prayer and fasting, and fellowship, a time of meditation and searching of our heart, asking the Lord to make us holy and to help us be more dedicated and filled with love toward Him and each other. The brothers and sisters responded well in the way they prayed, visited and helped each other. It was also a time when families gathered and spent time with each other. One of the families gathered all their children and close relatives, and enjoyed a special time together, talking about the Lord Jesus to relatives and friends.

March 2017

First I want to praise God with all my heart. He is the only one worthy, for the wonderful way in which He worked during this time in our lives.

By the grace of God, in March we had a great opportunity to evangelize, with many people hearing the message of the Gospel. Together wit h other three churches in the area, we prepared through prayer and fasting, and God worked in a wonderful way. We shared a meal together, and then had an evangelism service.

Updates from January

January began with a week of prayer among many of the churches in our area. We took turns meeting for prayer in these churches, and thus enjoyed the fellowship with brothers and sisters in various places, praising God together and bringing our request before Him. Although it was very cold outside, the brothers and sisters came to prayer. These were evenings filled with blessings in which we felt the joy of the presence of God with us, which encouraged us to prayer.

News from September

First of all, I want to thank God for the wonderful way in which He worked during all this time, in us and through us. Praise Him! This month we focused on two aspects: prayer and visits to those who came to the baptism last month, and the new teen group that started school. There were some families that invited us to visit, and we did our best to respond promptly...
