I am on the verge of embarking on a mission trip to Hungary and Romania in January-February 2017. I had the opportunity to go to the same nations in 2005, and it was the best mission trip I have ever been on. (That previous trip is summarized on this blog site in the category Hungary/Romania 2005). I request your prayers. Romania is still very receptive to the Gospel and recent mission trips were blessed with hundreds of converts.
The beauty of the trip is that I will travel with the same mission organization as before – Partners In Missions International (PIMI). Their website is http://www.PIMI.org
This trip will feature a crusade/evangelistic atmosphere, and it will consist of about fifteen pastors preaching the Gospel. We will be preaching crusade evangelism based in Oradea and the surrounding towns. We will also attend and contribute to a pastor’s conference in Satu Mare.
Bob Ward was the president and founder of this wonderful ministry of nearly twenty years. He has gone on to be with the Lord. The president is now Elijah Morar, from Romania, who works very hard in both Romania and in the United States of America. The Romanians are one of the finest people groups I have ever met, and they are very receptive to the Gospel. They are kind and respectful to their guests.
I covet your prayers for the following:
1)Logistics- airplane flights and tickets, hotel accommodations, luggage and connections. I pray not to be rushed.
2)Health- I pray for good health throughout the trip. The weather is very cold this time of year. Their latitude is the same as Minnesota. I just heard prior to departure that there is lots of snow right now! I pray to be well rested with a minimum of jet lag.
3)For the Great Commission to be accomplished in a powerful way. For folks to be gloriously saved. We pray for professions of faith, baptisms and rededications. We pray for our preaching to be anointed and for souls to be touched for eternity. We pray for excellent interpreters who accurately convey the original meaning of our words.
4)For love, harmony and unity with our mission team. For doors to open up through new relationships and new Christian friends.
5)I pray for conditions at church and home to enable the entire trip to go smoothly.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
A complete narrative of this trip will be provided on this blog site at the conclusion of this trip.
In Christ, Pastor Steve
Pray For Revival In America!
