I hope this email finds you well and still serving and loving the Lord!!
This Pandemic did a lot of changes in the way we act, feel, and even think, making us work harder to serve, to love and meet for fellowship, in the way that BIBLE teaches, and not how we see fit.
“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart full of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 “I thought about my ways and turned my feet to your testimonies.” Psalm 119:59! The Holy Spirit guides us as Christ’s disciples in this process of introspection and enables us to look to ourselves in the light of God’s holiness and forgiving grace. And as leaders we are to do the same with Christ’s body! Although serious introspection can be painful and uncomfortable, it also makes us more aware of God’s grace. The Holy Spirit reveals hidden weaknesses and sin to us during introspection. Then we realize that we can only meet God’s standards by His grace!
In this process of Spiritual Growth, I have registered with 4 other young man from the church, to a 8 mouths Apologetic Program, everything will be online, all the teachers are from Romania. My desire for this year is to raise up the next generation, and to have them trained at a high level. Please pray for us in this process, because most of them didn’t finish high school, and it will be hard for them, that is why I am in, to be close to them and help.
There is another young adult that started to go to Bible Seminary this year, and he is very excited about this decision. Praise God for all these changes, He has a bigger plan for us in the near future, and that is why we need to be prepared.
Please pray along with us!!
As church we’ve started the 2022 year with 40 days of prayer and fasting asking the Lord as king David did in Psalm 119 “The unfolding of your words gives light it gives understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts. Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees. Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.”
In these 40 days of prayer and fasting we meet every evening at 7pm to finish up the day in prayer!
By God’s grace our church can minister alongside with a team of 3 missionaries from our church that are right now in South Sudan! The goal is to bring the Good news of the Gospel but also to get socially involved. The goal for this mission trip is to bring them N.T. in their language, to present the movie with the life of Jesus, to dig several wells, make school benches, and renovate the local school! Please pray for protection as the team has one more week to stay in South Sudan!
Something that is always hard to do is discipline, so please pray for us as we need to make some disciplinary decisions! We pray for repentance and restoration and help them do so by counseling and redirect their focus and passion on the beauty of God’s fellowship!
We are so bleesed to minister to a goup of 13 wonderfull young families! After studying “The art of marriage” we began “The art of parenting”.
Thank you for praying and supporting the ministry here in Romania, Fundulea !
