Tuesday morning we drove from Bucharest to Constanta, where the conference for church planters from throughout Romania is being held. The conference began in the evening, with music by a messianic congregation from Bucharest. It was lovely and certainly made us feel at home!
The room was totally full, with the overflow sitting out in a hallway with a computer monitor to watch. We received a very warm reception. The conference sponsor, The Bible League of Romania, hired cameras and the entire event is being Live Streamed. Here is the link for the first session:
From there, you will be able to find the other links for the subsequent session.
Baruch taught on Megillat Esther. The translator was Timothy Mitrofan. I was told by several Romanians who are fluent in English, that Timothy did a fantastic, accurate translation. We are so thankful for him. He is the Director of the Bible League in Romania.
One thing I took away from Baruch’s message is that G-d uses bad to draw us closer to Him. Those bad things give us greater knowledge of His love and His power. We must never forget that!
The second thing I took away from the message is that G-d’s plans and purposes will be accomplished. The question is whether we will participate in the blessing. If Esther had not participated in G-d’s plan, He would have used someone else. Let us all be like Esther and be obedient to be part of G-d’s plans!
Where we are staying does not have internet, so I’m sorry not to be sharing this as quickly as I would like.
