Romania 2014

Satisfying finish

We enjoyed a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Sunday.

Romania Crosswalk 2014

After Friday nights excitement in 18 people getting saved I was ready to come home…that was good enough for me! But there was more to come.
We knew that the pastor of Elim Bucharest was expecting us to minister in his morning meeting… But didn’t know that it Bucharest would include many people healed, words of knowledge flowing, a last minute preach at a Vineyard church, loads of young people filled with the Spirit, and a congregation kneeling in surrender to the call to mission, with Alan clambering over rows of chairs to pray for folk! Oh… And a special dinner paid for by mafia!!
Here’s a few pics-
Sunday morning, Alan shared a testimony & Mike preached…. Many came forward and indicated that they felt Gods power touch them and physical improvement had begun.

Awesome night

A truly great night.

Romania Crosswalk 2014

The pic is just before 18 people get up out of their seats and come forward to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour!
Not bad considering the meeting was only publicised 5 hours previous!!

Arrested by the Spirit (18 more respond to the Gospel).

Today was a day of contrasts. First thing in the morning we were interviewed on the radio.  We were looked after by the team at radio S O S Pliostei.

Then we walked into the city with the vice president of the assemblies of God Mikhail Mandola.  Ploiesti was tough, people refused tracts, ripped up tracts and said they were not interested. Others were more responsive and chatted to us.

image

Then it was a long trek through small villages till we reached our destination Buftea.  We were stopped by the police again and had good interaction with folk along the road.

We reached the church in Buftea at 7:30 for meeting starting at 8pm. Still sweaty and dusty from the road we both shared the good news with a congregation that was steadily growing as the meeting went on. This meeting had been organised at a few hours notice but the Holy Spirit was clearly at work.

We both had a real sense to really go for it and leave people in no doubt about the love of Jesus expressed through the cross. We were not suprised when 18 people responded to the challenge to give their lives over to Jesus. We live in exciting times and are believing for more in the last two days.

Broadcasting Live

Straight off the road. Showered then live for over an hour on the radio.

Reached our destination ( SOS Radio Ploiesti) after a gruelling trek in the hot sun and finishing with a thunderstorm!!!
Then straight into the studio for a 1 hour programme….Come on!

In the right place

We have just made it to the edge of Ploiesti we are currently taking shelter from a thunderstorm in a local restaurant.

A church in Ploiesti where we should have been fell through…. So we ended up with Christian Centre Nehemiah.
Pastor Jurgan invited us to stay with him and his family without hesitation!!
A Dutch couple leading a Church in Campina…the church building has just been built by Jurgen himself.
We shared out their meeting last night and afterwards had the privilege of encouraging Pastor Jurgan and Dana over some supper!
These guys are doing a brilliant job…. Reaching out and caring for local kids who are neglected by their parents!

Stumbled and Humbled.

As we came down from the mountains we found ourselves living on the edge. No food, no money, nowhere to stay. Even our bottle of tree sap syrup had run out. Tracts were running low as we passed 1900 given out.

However we had  a number given to us by Dan from Brasov,  a Dutch pastor in Campina,  who didn’t seem to be answering his phone. Around lunchtime we got through and it didn’t take long for Jurgen to say yes; even though he was incredibly busy with a children’s outreach and had no idea who we were.
Today Mike fell over with the cross in the main road. I saw him stumble ahead of me, His foot slipping on an unfinished bit of tarmac and he fell to the right into what could have been on coming traffic!!
No real damage, just a few small cuts & grazes. This is the first time in six years anything like this has happened!
Once again we are humbled by God’s protection!

image

As we arrived in Campina we were whisked down to Nehemiah Christian Centre for dinner and met Jurgen and his wife Dana who gave us dinner.
Then it was back to their house to shower and change. We had a great time at their midweek meeting. There was a real sense of the presence of God among us and we met some of the team who serve in this great church.

Later we went back to their house for supper and were able to encourage and speak into their lives and ministry.

2 more respond to the Gospel.

Just a brief update. Valentino and the young guy with him responded to the good news of Jesus. Praise the Lord.

Reprint and a mountain conquered

A late start, a long climb and close encounters of the furry kind.

Thanks to the help of Dan & Gabby!

We gave out so many tracts leaving Brasov today it was looking like the reprint was too little..

A little awkward sometimes but nothing stops Alan from witnessing!!!

It was now time to start our ascent 3000ft up to Predeal….stopping for a bit of refreshment halfway up we were told by a manager, “be careful of the bears, they have a habit of climbing over the barrier!” We thought he was joking until he showed us the photos he took of the previous day

Alan & I (Mike’s writing this one) tried hard to find the Pentecostal church in Brasov but a few wrong contact no.s, dodgy church website details & turning up at the church only to find the building half built!!!….we decided maybe God wants us somewhere else, Hello!
After praying ( it helps!) we found the New Frontiers church. The pastor took our flyer thought about it and then gave us a spot in the meeting to encourage the folk
