I wanted to send home a quick update and a few prayer requests. Tom and I arrived safely via Chicago, Munich, and Timisoara. I included a couple of photos of the Timisoara city center, apparently abounding in new retail activity and construction brought on by an improving economy. The region seems culturally and historically dominated by the Orthodox Church, but also to be experiencing a growing evangelical presence.
I also included a couple of shots of the village where I’m staying. You can see Serbia on the other side of the Danube River.
This morning I was invited for coffee by the mayor of Coronin, whose church family will be coming together with Grace Baptist of Moldova Noua for combined worship tonight at 6:00. I included a picture of the Grace sanctuary which is expected to be full. I’ll be bringing the sermon on forgiveness that I shared during our revival series, so please pray for God’s Spirit to touch many hearts tonight.
Saturday morning at 10:00 I’ll preach for a pastors’ conference, and Saturday evening at 6:00 for a youth conference. Sunday morning at 10:00 I’ll preach for a baptismal service, and Sunday evening (also at 6:00) I’ll preach an evangelistic message for the community.
We are eight hours ahead of Paducah but, if you’re interested, you will be able to access most of the services online at:
Pastor Damian sends his warmest greetings. I send my love to all of you. Thank you for praying bold kingdom prayers for this weekend.
Un Domn. O Credinta. Un Botez. Ephesians 4:5. One Lord. One faith. One baptism.
