ERIC MURPHY UPDATE MAY 2017
—A Boy Named Eric
—Something Happened Sixteen Years Ago
—It’s at the Publisher Now
A BOY NAMED ERIC
A Romanian young man is naming his son Eric. What an honor. Beni Negoita wrote that it is because the name, Eric, means “leader” and it is also because of me. He went on to say that I have many “descendants” meaning that God has used me to impact the lives of many young people. What a blessing! Beni served in our youth camp ministry in Romania earlier and is launching his own ministry now. Actually, this is the second time a little boy in Romania has been named Eric, the son of Iulian Avramescu. Iulian is another one of our “descendants”.
Pray that God will use both Stephanie and me to impact others for Christ. It is wonderful to see how God uses young adults with great potential.
SOMETHING HAPPENED SIXTEEN YEARS AGO
A 14 year old came to Hungary with his father on a ministry and work team to help us in the summer youth camps. Little did we realize that God would use this experience in his life to call him into missions. Now 30, Daniel Gibson is raising support to move his wife and four children to Japan where they will serve as missionaries. Incredible!
Sounds like another “descendant” story. Please understand, all credit and glory goes to God. There are other stories like this. For example, there is a church planter serving in an undisclosed country. He attended our second youth camp in Hungary in 1990 and made a decision at the campfire service to do whatever God would have him to do. He is doing it! No, God is doing it!
IT’S AT THE PUBLISHER NOW
“O Mighty Warrior” will soon be in print. Chocked full of stories, lessons that God taught me over the years, it is a book that I have written for leaders and mentors. It is for anyone who wants to learn how God works in the lives of people. Printed by WestBow Press, a subsidiary of Thomas Nelson, it will be available soon. Let’s make some more “descendants”. God can use you to make an impact. Stay tuned for more details.
Thank you for making possible these opportunities to touch the lives of many young people in several nations. Only eternity will reveal all of the great things that God has done.
