Because the rain from yesterday was gone, the streets of Pécs were bustling with people as Team Eastern Europe headed out to do ministry today.
The Lord had so many divine encounters in store for us. At a park where we did our first drama, one of the students had just sat down on a bench as an elderly lady who spoke English came and sat next to her; this led to such an encouraging conversation. At the same time, another group of students was talking to a deist. They got to show Christ’s love to him and ask some good questions to lead him closer to the truth.
At our next drama site, God did something miraculous. Yesterday, a group of our students had talked to a woman in a purple shirt and a man who had come to Pécs to stay with family but ended up on the streets. The students led the woman to the Lord, but the man seemed resistant to the gospel.
Before we left, our translator was able to tell them about a few places that could help. Today, we saw the same lady in the purple shirt again! She was bursting with joy when she saw us! She could not wait to tell us that 30 minutes after we left, the man found a job, somebody offered them a cheap place to say, and somebody else did their laundry for them. The Lord provided for their needs. God is faithful!
As the team headed back home, we stopped to get fagy (ice cream), and sitting on the bench across from us was the same man from yesterday! We got to show him Christ’s love and give him some fagy . God let us see His work come full circle.
Besides these crazy miracles, one of the sweets moments of today was dinner time. Music floated through the air as the team gathered to eat garlic bread and spaghetti. We all felt like family whether we were passing the garlic butter around, singing worship music or washing dishes. This reminded us of earlier today when one student said that he was so thankful for our "giant tiny family."
We push back darkness together every day. We celebrate victories together every day.
We eat together every day. We worship and pray and laugh and read Scripture together every day. We really are a "giant tiny family."
Thank you all for your prayers. Please be praying for our travel to Romania tomorrow. We cannot wait to see what divine encounters God has in store for us!
