NEXT GENERATION PREPARATION
„But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;” I Corinthians
The month of May brought many days of perfect weather. This gives us more opportunities to talk to people as they sit outside, and we have enjoyed getting to know some of our neighbors. Please pray that we will have wisdom as we seek to be a testimony for Christ and share Him with those around us.
Kristy’s Romanian language lessons continue to go well, and she is progressing quickly. The teacher is impressed with how well she is learning. Our Gypsies are glad to be able to communicate a little with her. Thank you for your continued prayers for Kristy and her learning of the language.
We had a special service with missionary Ron White, who is the president of a Bible college here inRomania. With him was the Gillespie family who ministered to our Gyspies with some beautiful music. With the nice weather, we had the service outside, and many were there to hear the Word of God. They seemed to enjoy the service, and we had a good time of fellowship with our guests afterwards.
New children, teens, and adults continue to come to the services. It was encouraging to see Rebeca come to church a couple times this past month. Please continue to keep her in your prayers, as well as the other teens. There have been a few teens coming now and then, including Ionel (Yone-ell), and his older unsaved brother, Alin (Ah-leen).
A few weeks ago, we had an activity for the teen guys. Ionel, Alin (Mariana’s saved son), and Tica (Tee-ca), one of Alin’s unsaved friends, came to the activity. They enjoyed it, and it was good to be able to talk to them directly about spiritual things. It is difficult for the saved teens in Mosnita (Moesh-neetsa) to take a stand for the Lord. There is a lot of wickedness, negative peer pressure, and temptation in that neighborhood. Please keep them in your prayers. Pray for us as well to have wisdom as we seek to encourage them in the Lord.
Ion (Yone), Mariana’s unsaved husband, has been doing pretty well with the reading classes. It is very slow going for him, but he is recognizing more and more words. We keep praying for his salvation.
The children’s classes have been going pretty well. Sometimes, they are so distracted and chatty that it seems I can’t get through to them. However, the other day, they were very well-behaved, and it was exciting to see them learning. Please be in prayer for our VBS which is coming up in a few weeks.
Lord-willing, after nearly two months of nothing being done, the rest of the work on the exterior of our house is supposed to be finished within the next two weeks. Please pray for the interior items that need to be finished also.
Please enjoy a few attached photos of our special service, and one of Kristy and me. In the last picture is Ion, Mariana's unsaved husband.
We appreciate your prayers very much, and are blessed to have you behind us as we serve the Lord inRomania!
Jonathan and Kristy Heisey
