"Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."
Dear Friends, God is so worthy of our worship. I praise Him for life, and His sustaining graces, not to mention His great Salvation. This last month was my 33 birthday. Similar to other birthdays I’ve had here in RO, I was very sick. I had pneumonia and was able to stay home from work for a week. All of us have been struggling with health issues the whole winter long, and would especially appreciate your prayers for good health.
An additional prayer request would be for God to grant me a new residency permit. Mine expires in less than 2 weeks and we are going through some of the necessary preparations before we give the authorities my application. Praise God I’ve lived in Romania for around 7 years now.
Also we praise God for providing more 180 DVD’s to distribute. (www.180movie.com) We have been asked to translate www.geniusthemovie.com , but we’ve been quite overwhelmed with sickness, work, and the other things of life. May God help us get it done if it’s His will.
This month I’ve got three videos for you. The first is an interview with an atheist in the center of our city. During the interview he reveals the real motive of atheism: He doesn’t want to believe in God. It is in Romanian and can be seen here:
The second is an interview with a guy named “Freddy” in Brasov. Freddy has a Christian background, and discusses why he’s not right with God. Among his objections is the issue of election. Praise God for His grace and wisdom in how He helped me handle it. This one is English and I hope you take the time to watch it. As an encouragement to you and praise to God, Freddy has since gone to church with the guys I was out sharing with. You can see the interview here:
Lastly, is a sermon God gave me the opportunity and grace to preach in church. A friend of ours from Jordan came, so it gave me a well appreciated excuse to preach in English. The sermon is an exposition of Romans chapter 2 and can be watched here:
The English starts at about 6:18 and you can start at that point by clicking here:
Feel free to like and share these video’s. Also if there is anyone interested I’ve prepared DVD’s, one with English street evangelism, and one with Romanian. If you’d like either please let me know and we’ll try to figure a way to mail them to you.
I’ve been recording sermons from church and posting them on my Youtube page here:
Again please keep my family’s health and spiritual health in your prayers, especially Andrea as she carries our new little baby on the way. Please pray for God to build His church and make it beautiful, as well as pray that God would build our family and make it beautiful for His glory and our joy. And particularly pray with us that God would provide support for me to just work 1 job, and use the extra time doing more evangelism and the work of an evangelist.
Jonathan, Andrea, Hannah, Demetrius, & baby
1 John 3:1 ASV Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are. For this cause the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Iată ce fel de dragoste a arătat Tatăl, la noi, că noi ar trebui să fie numit copii ai lui Dumnezeu, și astfel suntem. Pentru aceasta cauza lumea nu știe noi, pentru că nu-L cunoștea.
