|Yesterday I was able to make it up to Constanta for their morning English service. It was a blessing to see the other missionaries up there, and to see the children in the home. Then in the afternoon I was in the Turkish meeting at Kadriye's house. The house was full. We sang for about an hour, then for over an hour four of us preached. Everyone loved it. |
Recently Brother Ralph gave a copy of the Old Testament in Turkish to the preachers up there. They've been preaching from the books of Psalms and Isaiah every day for the last couple of months. New homes are opening up in new villages in Romania. I believe they're going to about twenty villages now.

|I think it's been a couple of weeks since I wrote last. After ten years our old computer monitor finally quit working. We were able to get a new one, though, thankfully. |
Brother Nasuf is now travelling to his own villages again in his new car. His son-in-law is also a preacher, and now that they have reliable transportation they want to start some more churches. Recently, one of the new believers from Varna moved back to his village, which happens to be near a village where Nasuf already has a church. This new believer said that he wants a church in his house. It looks like the Lord is opening new doors for new churches out there. Remember to pray for Nasuf. He'll need some extra money for fuel each month. His church continues to fast and pray one day a week. Recently a woman who had been out of church for eight years came back. In one of the village churches two ladies walked into the meeting from off the street. They enjoyed the meeting and came again the following week. That day they professed faith in Christ Jesus. Prayer works.
In our village there is a boy who visitted church about two months ago. He came to the meeting twice and asked for prayer. He has epilepsy. Yesterday he told us that he has had fewer seizures, and less severe. When he was in the meeting he recorded the hymn singing on his cell phone, and says that he listens to it every night. He asked why he cries every time he hears the hymns. One of our believers told him, "Don't worry. That's just the Lord softening your heart. Keep on listening to the hymns and come back to church." Pray for him, and pray for all our churches.
