Team Eastern Europe woke up this morning again to a hot breakfast at the Charis House followed by time in worship, teaching, and prayer. The team has been learning about walking in the power and favor of the Lord. We set out with gusto—ready to push back darkness for the glory of God.
Arriving at Oradea, we were able to use a different tool to evangelize: street evangelism. Many deep conversations with people began with the simple action of giving them a “cadou.” We learned the word “Cadou,” which means “gift” in Romanian, so we could tell people that the tracts that we gave out are gifts for them.
After we walked the streets of Oradea, we had the opportunity to do the drama at an orphanage. As soon as we climbed out of the bus, we could feel an instant connection with the children. After dancing with them for a few songs, the team did the drama. The children's attention was captured. One of the team members got to talk to a girl who poured out her heart about how her best friend had passed away a while ago and many other things. She said she knew that God loved her, but she didn’t think Jesus was with her. She seemed hopeful that the gospel would be true and almost decided to accept Christ. She is so close. We are thankful that seeds were planted, so please pray for her and all of the other children with whom we were able to engage. We ended our time there with music and a time of playing soccer.
After a full day of ministry, Team Eastern Europe came back to where we are staying. The Charis House brings hospitality, refreshing scenery, homemade meals and a heart to serve the Lord together. Our giant tiny family seems to be stretched across the world as we meet more and more brothers and sisters in Christ.
Thank you for your prayers! We have one more official day of drama ministry before we prepare to head home. Please be praying for miracles to happen tomorrow!
