Through the events we have done and I have helped with, we have been able to see how God prepared the hearts of those people to hear the Gospel in a way that is relevant to each of them. When we organized an event for youth, I didn’t think that many would come because it is summer and I thought they would be away. About 15-20 youth came to the event. During socializing and games, they asked different questions about what we do.
Last month I met with some young people in Craiova. One of them is Sebi, who was interested in finding out why God permitted slavery in the Old Testament. He has not yet declared himself an atheist, yet has left a space in his life to find out more about God. Another boy I met and presented the Gospel to was named Adi. When he lived in Cyprus, he used drugs, yet now he wants to learn more about God. He doesn’t find pleasure in the things of the world anymore that he once enjoyed.
I am thankful that God has allowed me to live the beautiful words of Psalm 126:5-6 which says “Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
May God be blessed!
