Dear partners ,who have joined here in Corabia to our mission, it has been some time since I sent the last Update regarding the work here. During this period I spread the gospel message through four ways:
Our city is mostly composed of neighborhoods with houses, but in the center, we have apartment blocks, where until now we have emphasized the preaching of the gospel. Last months, together with my wife, I shared New Testaments that included an invitation to our meetings every Sunday. The Lord has given us permission to see that there are people interested in reading from the New Testament. At one block we put the invitation and the New Testament in each mailbox, when we left, the postman was coming in to deliver the mail, from the door of the block Ițve heard the conversation between a man from that block and this postman. The postman asked permission to take the New Testament to read.
Pray that this man who reads the Bible to return to God and be born again.
This year, we had two weeks of VBS with the kids. The first VBS was in July, and the second in August. Again, the team I worked with was my family, Cornelia, Damaris and Tiby. This year the generation we work with has changed again. It is the third generation in which we invest, through biblical education. The main themes of these two VBS were “How animals and men became evil” and “Punishment or redemption”. Naturally, these subjects were presented in a way that children could understand, through biblical stories. Cornelia taught them songs and Tiby was responsible for organizing the games, Damaris took care of the projection.
Pray that these children will grow up in the fear of the Lord and be saved.
With God”s help who works through His believers, seven children were helped this year with school bags and supplies to start the new school year well. Cornelia is the one who coordinates this project. My contribution is only prayer and encouragement. In our area, children from poor families have a fairly high school dropout rate. Our goal with this help is for them to go to school and learn to read so they can study the bible
Pray that those helped will not drop out of school.
“What you say is true” “yes, it is true, because it is an exposition of the Biblical text” “I know, because I also read the Bible”….. These are some quotes from conversations with people who do not go to the church. These are reactions to the messages I post on the facebook page or privately on messenger. I started doing this because I noticed that when I went to preach the Gospel, I met very few people and almost none of them were willing to listen to me. My goal is for more and more people from Corabia to hear the good message of reconciliation with God through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray that these people who are listening to the posted messages will be saved.
