Romania Newsletter March 2019
Dear Brothers, I greet you with God’s Word: “That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.
Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim. Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.”
The photo is taken on the way to Mioveni Prison. It's already seen spring comes and now the mountains are beautiful with their snowcaps. Whenever we pass the Carpathians we think of the grace of God. We think of your faithfulness through which you make possible to cross these mountains to proclaim the Lord's mercy to those who are behind bars. Thank you for your prayers. We have a very good relationship with education officers. In this unit we spend three hours with two groups of detainees. It is a blessing that our work is appreciated. Praise God! We meet people open to a changed life. We often agree that a successful reintegration relies on a changed character, besides the importance of keeping a good relationship with the family and getting a job after the release. The new program in MCiuc Prison is very effective in this direction. We are approaching the end of the course and we can say we have achieved our objectives.
Brother Hutu sent pictures about his ministry. I give the glory of the Lord for his beautiful family. They serve the Lord together. It is a a beautiful example of Joshua 24,15.
Several volunteers of the team have asked me to send their good wishes to all of you.We pray for you, especially for the health of Fedi Davidovics.
With love in Christ,
