The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). – Matthew 1:23
During the holidays we visited families to read together from the Bible, we read about the events that happened around the birth of the Lord, especially in Luke 1 and 2, together we enjoyed what the Bible says, how God prepared the coming of the Lord Jesus by sending John the Baptist to prepare the way, before the coming of the Savior. Then I read about the obedience shown by Mary, the mother of the Lord Jesus, and about the birth of the Lord that was announced of old, a perfect plan by which God would redeem His people. We rejoice over the people who have heard the gospel and pray for their research.
With God’s help, we had activities with the children of Berindei, with approximately 20 children between 7-10 years old present, where we discovered together God’s great plan to save the world from sin. To go through the entire narrative about God’s creation, fall and redemption, we had 4 meetings with biblical lessons and songs. We talked about God’s perfect creation, after that through man’s disobedience sin entered the world and the perfect relationship it had -a man’s relationship with God was interrupted by sin. God intervened with the solution to redeem us and prepared a way to restore man’s relationship with God. In His perfect plan, God has each of us in mind and chose as His only Son, not only to leave heaven but to give His life as a ransom for each of us. He did this because He loves us!
With God’s help this month I visited 10 families to give them food and Word for the soul. We were amazed to see that God full of love and mercy is still looking for people to turn their eyes to Him. In two families I saw how God personally searches for men, Săndel took the Bible to his workplace and reads from it, Nicu had a dream through which God calls him to Him.
- We pray that every child gets to know God more at the weekly meetings and through them we reach the hearts of the parents.
- We rejoice in the people who have heard the Gospel and we pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to them in a personal way.
