The end of the lecture phase has come!

The past three months we have had some amazing teachers visit us at our school in Cluj, Romania. In the first picture is Graham Powell, a New Zealander coming to us from Canada and bringing with him his testimony of deliverance from strongholds. During the week that Graham was teaching I experienced some deliverence myself from certain fears. It was a powerful week and I learned so much about how to fight the spiritual battles that we find ourselves in every day, that we many times don't realize.

In the picture to your left is Bob a Menonite Pastor from Pennsylvia. God used him to communicate the heart ministry and has resparked my interest in the Old Testament and in Jewish tradition as it points to Jesus. Bob is such a wise guy! Also through his teaching God revealed to me some amazing things about grace and how I can't work to maintain my salvation. Jesus died for my past sins, the sins I commit today and the ones I will commit tomorrow. Such AMAZING grace! Its hard to explain without writing a novel, but God really touched me through Bob's words, so much so that me and some other students decided that we wanted Bob to baptize us--that night!

Cool. I am also a Mennonite. I hope I get to meet Bob.

"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
