Awhile ago, I was encouraged by a friend. He told me that what I do is really important. This encouragement came during a time when I felt a little discouraged and tired.
On one of the days that went to offer people calendars for 2021, some children came to me asking for calendars. I told them that I would give them some if they knew how to read. They read it letter by letter, but they didn’t know who the Lord Jesus is. Following a conversation with them, I was able to present the Lord Jesus to them as Savior. They rejoiced greatly, and I continued to talk with them and respond to their questions. Yes, it is important that any human being would hear the Gospel, so that they can be saved (Romans 10:14-15)
Discipleship with those who are interested
After I share the Gospel, I invite the people to come alongside a local church from Craiova where I serve and for a study group in order to grow spiritually. Ana, always thanks me that through me, she was saved from a crisis. After about 6 months, I directly approached her and told her that her heart needs to be connected to the Lord Jesus, not to me, who can disappoint her. With time, she began to let go and to apply this principle that the Lord Jesus should be who is connected to her heart, not a person. I rejoiced that her, as well as other people have started to apply these values in their lives.
Continuing to serve, on a day that I was taking garbage to the dumpster, I met a little girl named Maria who was warming up a sausage by the fire of garbage. When I saw her, my heart was broken and it hurt. After a few days of searching for her to offer her some food, I found her. One evening, I forgot some books that I had bought in the car and when I got out of my car to search for those books, Maria appeared with her friends. I rejoiced greatly because I had something prepared for her and her friends. I offered it to them with my whole heart and I also told them that I was sorry that I couldn’t offer them anything else, but one of her friends said that what I offered was very much! I saw the hand of the Lord Jesus at work and this refreshed me very much. I saw the sovereignity and richness of His grace in ministry! To Him, be the praise!
- For people to be aware that His sovereign grace is a blessing
- For God to show me humble people that desire to be saved
- For the Lord to take care of my personal needs, as well as the ministry needs.
- For God to raise up people to pray more for the ministry that I do.
