We praise the Lord for He has given us the opportunity to give more than 150 gifts to the Kindergarten classes at the local school. Additionally we were able to give to the children of the families that we have been working with. This opportunity has allowed us to form and strengthen our relationships with the parents as well, which allows for better conversations and opportunities to share Christ. Not only that but we delighted in God’s provision through those who prayed, those who gave, and in those who were able to receive the gifts. We ask that you join us in celebrating, praying for the children we were able to reach, and rejoicing in the Lord, for the ultimate gift of Christmas has already been given to us, when Christ came down at Christmas!

With great affection and love for you, and for the Glory of the Lord, we wish you a Merry Christmas!

Our God - The Only Healer

IMG-20181222-WA0025.jpg

May the peace of God fill up your hearts in these days while we celebrate the birth of Jesus!

We pray that God will cover you with His blessings and give you joy in His presence!

Recently, I met a man named Viorel. He is 52 years old. He is part of an orthodox family and he has a very difficult situation. He has one hand amputated and because he had to work to provide for his family, the hand infected and it’s in a very bad shape. He was hospitalized a short time for investigations and now we wait for the results to see if he has cancer or not.

Please pray for his soul because I told him about the salvation that Jesus can offer and now he knows that only God can heal him physically and spiritually!

Pray for his healing and for his family because he is the only one able to work. Also, pray for his child because he also has a handicap.

We thank you for your prayers and we will keep you up to date with his situation.

God bless you and Merry Christmas!

By God’s grace we finished the foundation this summer and as fo today we started to put the first brick as walls on the building. A building multifunctional as a sanctuary for gathering with people from the village, a room for different events, a place for Sunday school for kids, mother and child room, kitchen, bathroom, two shops. One for carpenter and one for sewing (tailoring shop) Beside the rooms we are making space, rooms for teams that are coming to stay for a short period of time!

At this time we are working to finished the exterior walls, before the winter, and because we have the bricks for only that part, and the connection corners from the concrete with all the metal bars that goes into it. We still need the bricks for the interior walls which we do not have yet.

Ephesians 1:13  You, too, have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed in the Messiah, you were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,

Pray for us as we are starting the walls that we will not stop working until we are finished the building. This is a test for us, a challenge for us, however we are trusting in Him. We believed that sooner then later we will be gathering there.

Prayer request;

  • Pray for fonds to finished the entire building so we can be there as soon as possible.

  • Pray for the wether to cooperate so we can work easily.

  • Pray for the work that we started with the kids and the youth.

  • Pray for the women that are christian and non christian.

  • Pray for the people in Daneasa.

    As right now we need the interior walls, bricks that are costing us $700. 00. The metal bars and the cement another$500.00.

    Thank you for being a part of our ministry here where God is place us, and thank you for the willingness of helping hand in whatever God place in your heart.

“I rejoiced to have a special discussion time with a few women from the village this week, to encourage them and to show them that they are loved, that they have worth and that the Lord Jesus Christ loves them! 
They are very open, but at the same time, it is hard for them to understand that the Lord loves them and that He is good to them.

Pray for their hearts and souls and that God would open their hearts to Him! Amen!” Mihaela Serbanescu.

Pray for the village of Daneasa, Romania where Mihaela and her husband Daniel Serbanescu serve as PIE missionaries and church planters.

Prayer requests - Daneasa

Peace my dear brothers in Christ!

 

I want to share with you few prayer request and in the same time things that we are thankful for: we would like to thank  those who involved through prayer or actions regarding the multi functional building in Daneasa, where we have started our construction and through God's Grace, we managed to build the groundwork of the building.

 

This month we had a special event for the children at the stadium in Daneasa, where they could rejoice through plays, games, songs, bible verses and fellowship. Please pray for them so God will search their hearts and they will continue to come to the children's program.

 

Lastly, i would like to share with you what God is working through us in Daneasa: we had the opportunity to go on the streets and share the Gospel, also we have visited few families of non believers and we praise God that they received us and we were able to share the good news of Salvation. Please pray for them, that the Word of God will search their heart and they will be saved.

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
— 2 Peter 2:9

We rejoice in sharing with you about how God worked this month. With the help of God, this month we managed to finish the paperwork for the multi-functional building! I strengthened a friendship with Costel, whom I have wrote about in previous newsletters.

Thanks be to God that He worked so beautifully, in which Costel acquired confidence and felt encouraged by our time of fellowship.

Costel desires to know more about God and for us to continue praying for him.

 

Likewise, we had a blessed time of consolidation for the believers through Brother Ilie Contiu and Niky Botan, in which we prayed, praised God and worshipped together.

We praise God for the fellowship, which we had this month with the members and others from Daneasa. We were encouraged through this verse and praises be upon God!


Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Family Visits

Psalms 48:1 "Great is The Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness."

Thank you dear brothers for your prayers that you brought before The Lord on behalf of us. We feel blessed and desire to share with you how God came to help the people of Daneasa this month.
A family in Daneasa is going through a challenging period in their lives. Vali is a mother of 4 children, and a few months ago, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was operated on. Presently, she is recuperating and with the help of God, we offered  help and care through encouragement, visits and transportation to the hospital for blood tests.

Following these things, they felt encouraged and thanked God. Together with my wife, we visited another family where we share the Gospel and care for them in their needs. Adriana and her daughter, Cristina, are special people desiring to know God more. Cristina is experiencing a challenging time. We pray for her and her family to be saved. This month 2 families were helped with wood and coal for fires, being very thankful to God.

Besides service, God blessed us through equipping conferences.

God bless you and we ask you to continue to intercede for these families that the name of God would be praised.Where will my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth."
