Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
As I wrote last time, we had the joy of baptizing Sister Paraschiva the last Sunday in September. She was very glad and also very nervous. She shared with us that this is what she wanted to do since her youth, but because of the opposition from her husband, baptism was delayed for years until now. We rejoiced together for her, and we pray that God would help her be faithful to Him until death.
Another project from September was the partnership with six young women who spent three weeks with us. They are part of the 45 youth group from the USA who participated in an international missionary project. For eleven months, they visit eleven countries. Their goal is to serve the Lord through a variety of activities for God’s glory. Romania was the second country they visited part of this project. Together with the girls we went to the senior home in Ocna Mures, had activities for children at church and also did home visits to the elderly and the sick in the village. During this time, I fought to have a day of activities for children at the school site. I eventually got to set this up on the last day the girls were with us. The school let us use one of the big classrooms, and the English teacher corralled students until the room was filled. It was a great opportunity with a strong impact on the students and on the teachers. Praise the Lord!
- For Sister Paraschiva’s spiritual growth
- For Alin who went to France to work, and does not want to keep in contact with us
- For the children who participated in acitivities this month
- For the senior home in Ocna Mures
- For my family, for spiritual and physical health
In His Service,
