As the parks are full of people here in Medias during the summer, God challenged us to start do street Evangelism once again. We started to go out each Saturday evening in the central park, singing, and talking with people. We notice that people enjoy listening!
Last week we had a team from Switzerland together we went to Vitro Park and they sing, did pantomimes, share testimonies and the gospel. People were very attracted when an artistic Romanian girl painted Jesus with only her hands. We went there to discuss with people and also pray for those who were open to receive prayer. There were people in the park who were glad to have someone to speak with and listen to their struggles. Most of the time street evangelism is more simple then we imagine and it’s important to not be shy, but rather be open and discuss with people.
Short term summer-outreaches: Romania, Ukraine, Republic of Moldova and India have just come back and they have many stories to share it with us. I would like to give you a glimpse…
“My name is Flori. I am 21 years old. I was for 2-nd time in India. India is a colorful country, very agglomerated with hospitable and creative people and very smart. I was visiting the slum one day together with other of my colleagues. As we walk on the path of that poor area the Indians curiously came to greet us and shake our hands. They were very glad to see white people. Besides the appearance and face features there is the same need- to be loved and accepted… and the need to know the true God. I felt honored to see that we’ve been coworkers with God and see how He spoke through us. When I shared in the families we visited how God healed my mother from cancer, I saw the smile on people faces and some glimpse of hope. The gospel break every wall which is raised, it’s touching hearts. The gospel was shared in India through me, but it can be shared also through you… What do you say would you like to step out on this ground with God?” ( Flori, India’s outreach leader)
“This month a decided to dedicate it to God for mission. I went to Ukraine. I learned to serve those around me and see their needs before mine. Most important thing I learned to listen to God’s voice!”(Adriana E, part of Ukraine outreach team)
