Even if I finished Baptist Theological Institute (Baptist Bible College) in Bucharest, my eyes weren’t yet opened to see the great need of loving those I had nothing to expect something back from ( the poor and those with disabilities). God began to show me this need, through a visit, that some category of people long- the need to be loved.
During the mission on streets, after we’ve told them the Good News, we prayed for a paralyzed girl who had mental disabilities and told Him this girl can’t be born again, but God told me that I only have to show her love! Since then, the desire to love those categories of people grows in my life more and more. Here it is another family.
Alin’s family (photo) lives very poorly, on the verge of starvation. He told me he doesn’t want to change his religion, but we told them the Gospel this month and talked with the kids.
It’s so wonderful to watch the discipleship group God gave me this period. Great news is these people started to want to discover the truth from the Bible. Every one of them asked for a Bible to read it at home. I noticed their answers during group sessions came by their personal findings.
They started get up the courage and believe in Christ’s Truth. Mr. Peter (Pătru) surprised me very pleasantly. He feels loved by the Christian community from Hope Church (Speranta) in Craiova. As a result, he started giving gifts. One day we met him down town and he gave the girls in our mission sweets for them to eat. An act full of love!
This month I had the opportunity to meet my mentor, Cornel Stef. He gave me precious advice about what it means to be a missionary for Lord Jesus Christ. We served together in the villages around Draganesti-Olt and in Craiova. I can guarantee after spending time with him that he is dedicated in serving the Lord and the missionaries. I thank to the good God that He helps me understand the truth in a practical way!
Prayer requests for the next period:
- For the discipleship group to grow in their relationship with God
- I’d like to organize this month a day camp with the Roma kids in Craiova
- I’d like to organize more youth meetings in Craiova
- I’d like to give 100 New Testaments
- I’d like to work more in spreading the Gospel
