Jonathan and Kristy's July Prayer Letter

„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 1:27

We are very grateful for your prayers for us this month. We truly believe God works through your prayers! July was full of busy times, ministering, completing the finishing touches on our hall and baby’s room, unpacking and washing baby things, and trying to get everything ready for our little boy’s arrival. Although there were several delays and things that slowed us down on the house work, we praise the Lord that we were able to finish the hall and baby’s room before his arrival. :o) Everyone at church, and even our neighbors, are excited about the birth of our child. He is due August 5th, so we are expecting him to come any day! Please pray for an uncomplicated birth, and for Kristy to get a private room and be able to have the baby room-in with her the whole time.

Ion (Yone) is still admitted to the hospital, but should be getting out soon. He is doing some treatments there for a spot on his lungs. The Lord is working in his life and calling him to salvation. We don’t know why Ion keeps waiting. Please pray for him!

Adi (Oddy), came to one of the services the other week. His unsaved wife, Lusi (Lucy) has been coming sometimes too. My dad was able to talk to her specifically about her salvation. She is certainly thinking. Please pray that she will get saved.

For one of our services, a lot of children came, and they were not being well-behaved. They kept disrupting things and messing with the cars. Thankfully, this doesn’t happen every week, but it is frustrating having to have someone stand guarding things outside, instead of being able to participate in the church service. We would appreciate your prayers about this situation. For another service, the children were very good! :o)

A couple that was living next to the church building came to our services a few times. The woman, Ica (Eek-ah), showed particular interest, staying until the end of the services. After talking about salvation with my parents during a visit, she received Christ as her personal Savior! This couple just moved back to her village, but she said there is a church there that she would like to go to. Please pray for Ica’s spiritual growth.

A few teens have been coming to the teen classes, so that’s a blessing. Rebeca comes occasionally, although she sometimes seems to have an attitude. Please pray that she will grow in the Lord. Romica (Roam-eeka), the son of Alina (Ah-leena) who recently got saved, came to one of the teen classes. He paid attention very well, and seemed to want to learn. Alina has been growing spiritually and has also expressed interest in learning to read. We are hoping to start classes with her after the baby comes.

Please continue to pray for Alin (Ah-leen), Mariana’s saved son who is not living for the Lord. His new wife is only 14. :o(

We asked prayer for Radu (Roddu), one of the drunks in the Gypsy neighborhood. The other week, he got bit by a dog, and his leg was bleeding badly. I let him use my phone to call an ambulance. Although the ambulance didn’t want to come to the Gypsy neighborhood, Radu seemed to appreciate my help. It would be a great testimony if he would get saved and live for the Lord! Please pray for Radu.

We can’t thank you enough for your prayers and support for us and our ministries. Thank you for the encouragement you are to us!

In His service,
Jonathan and Kristy Heisey
P.S. Enjoy the before and after pictures of the hall and baby's room. :o)
