Romanian Ministries Update

Dear Friends at the Philippian Fellowship,

 

Thank you so much for your faithfulness in helping us to spread the gospel here in Romania.  Thanks for your prayers and support in June and July.  I would love to see you guys in September, I will be in the northeast for a few days bringing Corina to WOLBI in NY.

 

The Lord has given us many opportunities for ministry this spring and summer.  What a joy to have all our children home for the summer and ministering alongside of us.  At the beginning of the summer, our oldest son Michael asked Alina to be his wife, (she said yes).  We are excited about the opportunities the Lord has placed before them, using their medical and sports professions to give forth the message of the gospel here in Romania.

 

We hosted many different groups that came to assist with the new church construction in Valea Argovei, and leading weeks of camp and VBS in four different ministry locations.  In the spring Kristin purchased a new tablecloth, white with black outlined flowers.  I suggested that we should have all our guests sign their name and color a flower or leaf.  You see the result of 78 overnight guests in the beautiful artwork they designed on the attached picture.

 

Camp Eli was again a blessing to many, we hosted 880 folks this summer with different groups, and took nearly 300 of our own children, teens, leaders to camps as well.  We are thankful for the opportunity to host these children who are truly thankful for the opportunity to spend a week in a wonderful setting among God’s people who love them.  A special thanks to the different teams that gave of their time and resources to come and help us lead these weeks of camp.

 

We have just begun a new believers class at church with people who have decided to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.  Many of them are youth from within our church who were challenged this summer with their need to publicly proclaim their faith in the Lord.  Pray with us for this group of 14 who have just begun.

 

We are so thankful for the Godly heritage of those who have gone before us.  My godly grandma Fannie went home to be with the Lord August 11 at the age of 97. She faithfully served the Lord (taught second grade SS class for 60 years) and was looking forward to going to be with Him.  Thanks for all your encouraging words during this time.  It is difficult to be far from family during times like this.

We love you and are thankful for your investment in our lives and the ministry here in Romania.

Dear Philippian Fellowship and Waldoboro Baptist Church
    Thank you very much for supporting our ministry of spreading the Kingdom of God in our country.
    The Lord has been gracious and merciful with our family in the last period of time. On 13th of August, this year God gave us another gift in our family, named Patrick (3kg, 49cm). Although the surgery was complicated and lasted very long God took care of us, providing a doctor to intervene and take care of Stefy. When we got out of hospital that doctor told us that we had a lot of good luck because he was present in the room, but we praise God for that.
    Patrick is very healthy, Stefy is very well recovered, Sami is growing very fast and learns to speak, and I thank God for giving me wisdom and patience in taking care of my family. Please pray for us to be a good parable for the other families in the church.                                                Gratefully, David and Stefy Harlea1 2

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, and supporters of the ministry,
    We thank you again for letting your heart moved to support us in prayer and financially, in these past two months.
    From 29th of June to 4th of July we had the teenagers camp and we were blessed to see many campers committing their life to Christ. These teenagers from Fundulea, Valea Argovei, Florica Sinesti and Piteasca expected the camp with enthusiasm for fun and fellowship. But as the camp ended more of them were grateful for the way God searched their hearts and touched them with his love. I thank God that in this teenage period of their life when this world is the most attractive, God’s love was made irresistible for them. Seven of these teenagers were from Sinesti. We pray and try to disciple those of them who are willing to follow Christ.
    One day I had a chance to meet two missionaries sharing the gospel in Bucharest and the Lord blessed us to become good friends. One of them is David (first from the right, in the teenagers picture) who comes to serve with us in Sinesti, with children and teenagers, starting two months ago. I praise God for David’s big help and for seing their encouraging ministry focus on evangelism and discipleship.
Vanea, our brother from Fundulea, had many complications with his health. For aprox. 9 years he had an infection in his right leg and the hospital was his second home. We prayed for healing but God had another plan. When the antibiotics didn’t work anymore the only solution left was amputation. The doctors were avoiding this, but the last doctor who treated him was moved in her heart by God. She wasn’t a believer but she told us with tears how she had a dream, 3 nights in a row and how she really must do something to help Vanea. The Lord showed Vanea that He is in control of his situation and we saw how he passed over all this tragedy with hope.
    As I visited Vanea many times at the hospital I had the chance to share the gospel to his room mates and get friends with some of them. I praise God for this privilege. Nothing can be compared with the joy of bringing hope in a desperate heart, or faith in a doubtful person marked by suffering and pain.
    In the places were we minister, we also had the chance to minister to people needs with haircut. The Lord provided all tools that we needed and a couple of us ( Ady, Robert and Gina ,from Fundulea, and I) who had this ability, organized a couple of days in which we called people at church and offered our help. We held this in 4 churches and a good number of people came. While cutting their hair we talked with them, then pray and gave them a New Testament. Praise God for the privilege of serving Him.
    I thank God for you and your heart for our ministry with us. Please pray for us to be faithful in ministering to the spiritual needs of our church.
Gratefully David and Stefy Harlea
