Moldova House Meetings Day 1

After a two hour drive across very wet muddy and bumpy roads/tracks in an old minibus, we arrived in the village of Olanesti, Moldova. It was good to be dropped in at the deep end, just me and my translator for my first Moldavian house meetings!
It was great to see believers invite their neighbours into their small homes to hear the gospel, for some the very first clear gospel message they will have heard! It was a real thrill to see people coming to faith in Christ after hearing the gospel preached!

The other team members were also holding house meetings and they too saw folks accepting Christ as their saviour.

Sunday in Moldova

Good opportunities to get used to working with a translator (first time for 2 years), only a couple of slight hiccups otherwise we flowed in our presentation. Keep praying!

Tomorrow the team of 8 is divided up into pairs and we head off into the central regions of Moldova to take meetings in homes.
The Moldovan Christians have been praying and will have invited people into their homes to hear the gospel.
Please pray that God will give each speaker the right message to share.

Moldova Mission

Despite EU integration attempts in recent years, Moldova continues to be the poorest country in Europe, crippled by a high level of corruption, political instability and a failing economy. The extreme poverty, especially in rural areas, aggravates related problems like a high rate of alcoholism and an exodus of the working population to other countries, while children and elderly are left behind. However, this situation also creates many ministry opportunities, especially in the area of relief & development.

I have been invited to be involved in gospel preaching, this outreach is carried out in partnership with local Moldovan Churches, encouraging them in evangelism as they reach out to their friends, family members and neighbours with the gospel.

Please pray for:

For the preaching of God’s word, that many people will understand and respond.
For safety in travel.
For a good understanding and working relationship with my translator.
For Mark McCormick (Mission organiser) and the other team members who are also involved in reaching the Central Regions of Moldova.

The Approximate schedule for each mission is as follows:

Saturday – arrive in Moldova – possible outreaches in evening for some of us
Sunday am preach in local churches to get culturally orientated – maybe 2 to a church
pm in some cases we go out to preach the gospel in homes i.e. outreach missions starts

Monday – Saturday breakfast 8.0-9.0 Team time and feedback 9.00-10.00

Preaching in groups – on average 4 per day per evangelists 11.00-21.00

Monday debrief – final meal together
Tuesday – off home.
