LEAD OF THE LORD
Sitting in a church service on Sunday I noticed a late arrival and made a mental note that I would greet him after the service. But, the pastor did something very different giving an invitation for salvation and for people dealing with serious problems in their lives. What was different is that he was leading a communion service at the same time. It was a special moment. Sensing God leading me to speak to the man, yet, I hesitated. Stephanie and I were visitors ourselves. Still, God was strongly urging me to go over to him during the invitation. [Why was I hesitating? Oh me. I’m sure you’ve done the same thing.]
He was so appreciative of me reaching out to him, but he did not want to go forward because he said he was there for the first time. I told him that I was visiting also. Blew him away! I told him that God impressed me to talk to him. In a few minutes I found a church member to reach out to him as I hung around to help out. This Navy guy was so, so appreciative. He needed a message of love that somebody cared enough for him to reach out to him. This is what he told me. Praying that God will do a great work in his life.
COSTA RICA YOUTH CAMP
Cris Vidaechea, director at LIFE Costa Rica, did the evangelism because I had an issue that we could not be there for the camp. Though I it was disappointing I now see that God used this opportunity in Cris’ life for good. 13 salvation decisions and all of the campers went forward at the campfire meeting as Cris spoke again. Great to see God use Cris! Way to go!
LIFE ROMANIA IS FULL STEAM AHEAD!
Best way to describe what is happening in Romania right now. They are on fire for God! I recall when Iulian first went back to Romania after his seminary training in the States that a few of his supporters wondered aloud to me, “What will Iulian do when there is no youth camp?” Well, he and his team are so busy now I am concerened that they are getting enough rest. But, I remember those days in Hungary years ago. The ministry there grew and grew just like it is in Romania. Pray for Iulian as he comes to the USA soon to raise funds for the summer camps.
There is an opportunity to add two additional weeks of summer camp in southwestern Romania which is in great need of evangelism. Funds are needed for these two camps which will be in mid-August 2017. At least $11,500 is needed for each week of camp in Romania which will now total 11 weeks counting one week for MIA College in July. Great needs, more than $100,000, but there are great opportunities. Pray asking what God would have you to do to help.
Oh yes, two more groups are needed for camp this summer. June 23 - July 1, 2017 in western Romania and July 14-22 in southern Romania. “What would I do?” Thanks for asking. Whatever your skills and talents allow you to do. You could teach conversational English, help with sports, prepare and lead some afternoon activities for the campers, you name it. Maybe you are musical. We always need people to come to hang out with the campers. This is very important. They love it! And, you will be blessed beyond measure.
