We held two outreaches; a couples outreach and a youth outreach. Both were meal events where local church members invited their friends to come and hear the Gospel presented through preaching and testimonies. As a result, there were 108 decisions to trust Jesus for salvation, 54 requesting follow up visits to take the next steps in these new relationships and 44 requesting more information.
Christian and I have seen wonderful responses to the Gospel here in Moldova. Though our events are only half done, we have seen some 250+ respond to the Gospel message by praying with us to begin a relationship with Christ! Here in Moldova, the evangelical churches are growing, though slowly.
We have seen a great joy and excitement by the believers as up to 80-90 % of those attending the evangelistic outreach dinners are not yet Jesus followers. The Lord worked powerfully Sunday night as Christian and I both had events in separate places. Close to 90-100 people responded to the Gospel! The memberships of the two Baptist Churches in Carpeneni is less than 100 members. As in the past, this form of evangelism is proving fruitful.
Please continue to pray for the events of this week in Moldova and Romania. Also, pray for the follow-up in Moldova as the local believers make “home visits”. Pray the pastors and church leaders will faithfully follow-up.
Also, please pray for the $4500 needed for our Siberia outreach coming Nov. 1-10. Psalm 124:8 “Our help is in the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth.”
Rejoicing and Believing,
