The Vision (6/2/11): Romania Mission Update

We received the following email update on Wednesday (6/1/11) from Sam Waldron through Grace RBC in Mebane, NC:
Brothers and Sisters,
I want to write and thank you all for your prayerful support of the ministry God placed in my hands here in Arad, Romania. The public portion of that ministry is now complete. I spoke for about 30 minutes on Friday night, taught four times Saturday at the conference, and spoke in three different churches on the Lord's Day. Though speaking through translation is quite different, I have reason to thank God for his help and assistance in each of these ministries. The conference was very well attended. The meeting hall on Saturday at Mircea's church seats about 60 and was quite full for all 8 sessions on Saturday. Though I had slept well the night before, jet lag prevented my sleeping at all the night before the conference. I am therefore constrained to give much praise to God for the way he sustained me all the day during the conference.
Let me ask you to intercede especially for Pastor Mircea Aioanei and his church. He seems to be a fine pastor. The facilities of his church are very presentable even by our American standards, but he faces the challenges any small work faces. Please pray that God will add to their numbers and provide for the needs of Mircea and his family.
The Lord Reigns, Pastor Sam
