Must get some sleep. Romania trip was wonderful. The people. The food. The Hotel Magnus. E3 Partners.
Our team of 32 North Americans along with our talented translators, shared 1200+ Gospel presentations. 330+ first time professions of faith in Christ. I was really happy to be able to do follow up visits with brand new believers, encouraging them, praying for them. I sampled rose petal jelly, sweet-boiled walnuts, fresh fruit off of trees in courtyards we passed through.
In an earlier post, I mentioned that I visited with a woman named Neculina. Well, I did a follow-up visit on Thursday. She said she had prayed and asked Jesus to be her Savior after we left on Wednesday. Then she read the Bible - Gospel of John - like I had asked her to. She now wanted me to talk to her husband. She woke him up from his afternoon nap and brought him outside. I talked to him for quite a while. He had a lot of questions and pushed back a lot on the whole salvation by faith alone (no works required for salvation). I gave him a Bible and a pair of reading glasses. Then I used those free gifts to explain to him the free gift of salvation. He finally got it. Prayed to receive Christ. We showed him how to read and study the Bible. He was extremely grateful. His name is Marin - 78 years old!
More later - I'm so tired...
