Mission Trip to Bucharest & Mioveni, ROMANIA FEB. 13-MAR.5, 2020

I returned to RO for the 4th Bible Study-Fasting conference. In 2017 it was a 3-day meeting, in 2018 to 2020 there were 3 seven-day meetings. I count a fast day as 24 hours. No food is eaten during the 7 days by those who fast. In the week before leaving Bucharest I spoke in churches: twice in Messianic Assembly and in Antioch Assembly and Maranatha Baptist Church. On Thursday before going to Mioveni which is near Pitesti I spoke on fasting to about 15 pastors gathered in Alexandria Baptist Church. Pastor Ioan Tone of MBC gave me 800 tracts. Most of them I gave to others to distribute. I bought books & magazines & tracts in Stephanus bookstore in Bucharest before going to Mioveni and distributed the tracts & magazines & booklets in Bucharest. Most of the books I distributed to Christians. The 7-day conference in Mioveni was blessed. The difficulty of the fast was well worth the blessing that Christ offered us. Some from a sister church in Bodalest came to the conference. During the conference I spoke in 2 other churches. I believe this conference was an encouragement to these 3 churches. For this reason I came to them. I taught Revelation 12 to 17 and on fasting.
After returning to Bucharest I returned to Stephanus BS to buy again books. The tracts, magazines & booklets I distributed in Bucharest. Some of the books I gave to Christians and some I brought to France. We have scheduled in Mioveni a fasting conference for 3 days in early August after our week of camp in Rucar which we have had for about 17 consecutive years. We will continue our study of Revelation.
I am thankful to those who prayed for this mission trip. We can now pray for the seed sown, for Jesus Christ to use & bless it as He chooses.
“Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke.” Isaiah 58:6.
