Dear Praying Friends, 06-06-2021
“I’m saved! I’m saved! My sins are forgiven!!” Those are the words that Lyn, Livia, and Mihai had the joy of hearing from the lips of Gheorghina, Livia’s 74 year old sister. Gheorghina had promised God about 25 years ago that she would repent and get saved if He helped her through a serious surgery. He did but she didn’t. Then, about 7 years ago, when Livia got saved, Gheorghina remembered her promise, but she continued to resist. Recently her health has taken a turn for the worse, even spending about 2 weeks in a hospital for evaluation. Livia has been witnessing to her sister for 7 years. On Friday she called Lyn and they went to visit her again. Gheorghina was trying to understand, apparently not realizing that she knew all that she needed to know. So Lyn called Mihai, who lives just around the corner. He went over the simple Gospel again and Gheorghina began to pray, telling God what she knew; that she is a sinner and that she wanted His forgiveness. There was a pause and then she broke forth with great emotion and joy and tears as she exclaimed “I’m saved! I’m saved! My sins are forgiven!!” After a time of rejoicing, as Lyn was leaving, Gheorghina hugged Lyn tightly saying, “Thank you for loving me from the first day that we met.” PLEASE PRAY FOR GHEORGHINA. She is still not well physically and is looking forward to the day when she can come to church to thank everyone for praying for her all these years.
Also, I have a very special prayer request. Please pray for little Ana (age 4), daughter of Uțu and Roxana. She has a serious intestinal infection that will require several weeks of difficult treatment. Roxana is now home on maternity leave, so she’ll be able to take care of Ana during this time (the treatment is done at home).
BTW, services went very well today!
