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.

April 2015 Pro Vita Medica News

Our ministry is going well, with many women benefiting from counseling and being turned away from abortion.  At the hospital, where counseling has been occurring, a private counseling room will be in use now.  We have been working at this hospital since 2005, and with this new facility, it will make it better for doing our work there.  Though the room is not large in size, it will be ours in which to meet with our clients.  We are grateful for this development and appreciate this opportunity.
