Believe and do not search!

This is the popular phrase in an orthodox enviroment like this in Romania. I had the priviladge of being invited by a orthodox profesor from the University, to the international congress for young orthodox . He is my age, but he is very open to dialogue with an evangelical and recognizes that the orthodoxy lacks a personal aproach to Jesus in an every day commitment to follow Him and that orthodox people dont know the Scriptures.

At the congress I saw over 250 young adults and I could really see the need that they have in understanding and experience the transforming power of studying the Scriptures and that God calls them to a personal, lively relationship with Jesus our Lord.

My goal is to be ecumenical and address this need for the orthodox students at the seminary, with this orthodox profesor that invited me. I mannaged to meet this orthodox profesor through Otniel Bunaciu, a university profesor at Baptist Theological Institute in Bucharest.

Pray for an open door where me and this profesor can encourage and bring the seminary students to a personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus and to study the Bible.

 

I thank you all for your prayers and to the Lord because the prison ministry in Craiova started. I am part of a team of ten persons and we go with ethical and social educational programs for the prisoners. My role is to observe a teaching material and teach it to the prisoners, but also, with tact, to give them a taste of the truth of Gods Word that can bring them into salvation.

Pray for this ministry, as we want to gain our trust as a team that represents Rock of Ages Christian Organisation, and also to build up relationships with the staff of the prison and with the prisoners.

Also pray for a planned trip in 20th of August, a trip that is part of a program that I want to implement among the Craiova university and highschool students. The program is called AFECT Life Exchange where I want to give to the young adults the opportunity to visit beautiful cities from Transilvania. Many students have not traveled to Transilvania. I planned to spend three days with a church for a exchange of experience in Târgu Mures, and the posibility to know the beauty of the culture, thorugh different interactions with christian students, cultural events, games, visiting touristic areas and fellowship.

 

I can do what you can`t do. You can do what I can`t do. Together we can do great things!                                                                                                  Mother Tereza
