3 years ago, in 2017, a Romanian sister living in Canada discovered my Christian media ministry. She contacted me through Facebook and told me about a brother named Savencu, who is an evangelist and has many powerful and edifying experiences with the Lord during his life in ministry. The sister audibly recorded the materials and asked me if I could convert them into videos and post them on my YouTube channel. Knowing that it would be a very large amount of work on my part, and in front of the computer, I was not willing to accept this challenge if I wasn’t 100% sure that the challenge came from God. I responded to the sister by saying that I would pray, listen to some of the testimonies from the brother, and then give her a response.
As I started to listen to the testimonies, my heart became all the more convinced that these testimonies were from God, and that they neededto get to thousands of people, therefore I started to work on creating videos. After I finished all the work of editing and processing, I posted the testimonies of Brother Savencu on the Internet, and the results were beyond my expectations. Tens of thousands of people, believers and non-believers accessed these testimonies on my YouTube channel and were touched by God.
In these videos, Brother Savencu, who has had evangelical experiences for several years inministry, recounts the experiences of many people who returned to God and how their lives were changed through his missionary work. Through Brother Savencu, dozens of people have returned to the Lord. Some of these testimonies are incredible! In one of the recounts, Brother Savencu shares how in one day, while in ministry in Bulgaria, God urged him to enter the house of the most dangerous mafia leader in the city where he was. He entered by saying to the bodyguards who were protecting the building: “I have information for your boss. If I do not give it to him, you and he will be dead.” He entered the house, began to share the Gospel, and the mafia boss, together with his wife, repented and left their previous lifestyles of doing bad.
This experience appeared even in the Bulgarian press. In 2019, approximately 2 years after publishing the testimonies, through Sister Alice, the woman who sent me these testimonies, I was able to talk with Brother Savencu on the phone, asking him to come to Craiova, for a missionary trip. It was only possible one year later, towards the end of 2020. Brother Savencu, together with his ministry partner, Stelica Buliga, came for a week to Craiova, for ministry work in Dolj and Olt Counties. On this trip, they visited many different places: Craiova, Căciulătești, Coțofeni, and others, where unbelievers heard the Gospel and many souls surrendered their lives to Christ. Likewise, we organized a pastoral conference, where we gathered pastors and church leaders, having Brothers Savencu and Buliga equip them in evangelism and instructed them regarding the mission field.
There will be another conference organized in the future, when they will return to Oltenia. These brothers use the “Andrew Method.” What does this methodentail?Every member from the church will have a prayer list, with names of family members who are dear to them, and who are also unbelievers. They will pray 9 months for these people, and after 9 months, a missionary campaign will take place in that church, in which, every person on their lists will be visited by the evangelist brothers, and they will be presented with the Gospel.
This method brought much fruit in the missionary work of these two evangelists, by seeing many people returning to God through their work. With them staying a week in Craiova, I was able to put them in touch with many pastors and Christian leaders, so, in 2021, they can easily organize a more ample missionary campaign in the area of Craiova. With the help of God, we are planning that in 2021 to invite these brothers again tothe area around Craiova, and together to bring the Gospel to as many unbelieving souls, as possible. During this time, due to COVID, a part of my ministry has moved online. The Bible tells us,”As long as it is day, we must do the works of Him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.” (John 9:4) For 2 years, I had very little time for the media ministry, due tome starting the work amidst the Rroma. Now, during the time of all the COVID hysteria and restrictions, I do not desire to stay away from the work of God at all, but I desire to use all my time to do His work, even through the media.
Due to the media efforts from the last few months, I have seen the following results:
- Partial revival of my YouTube channel: Due to the inactivity for almost 2 years, many subscribers were no longer active (I had over 85,000 subscribers), because I was no longer posting content on my YouTube channel. Now that for almost 2 months, I am posting daily, over 500 new subscribers have been added in the last month:
- Over 200,000 views in the last 30 days, from the date of which I write my last update
- Over 21,000 viewing hours of the content in the last 30 days for the almost 500 posted video clips on one of my two YouTube channels.
The data from above, I took from Creator Studio, and it can change from month to month or even sooner. In order to be updated on the performance of my channel, please subscribe tomy channel!I continue to desire to merge the work of evangelism on the platform of media, as well as to be more efficient for the Lord in the virtual world, but also on the field.
Thank you everyone who prays for me and my ministry, as well as to those who have given of their time to read this ministry update. May God bless all of you!
