Today, we served in two churches that are dear to our hearts. First, we went to the village church where my father-in-law pastors. It was great to see old friends again and I enjoyed the opportunity to bring a message of encouragement and challenge from God’s Word.
This afternoon, we came back to the city and I preached at Emanuel Baptist Church (pictured left). During the time we spent in Oradea, Emanuel was our “default” church whenever I happened to have a Sunday morning or evening free and was not preaching somewhere. Corina grew up in this church, so we enjoyed seeing friends that we have missed the past few years. It was also a great honor for me to be invited to speak at this church!
Thank you for praying for us on this trip. Please continue to pray for the kids. They are having a hard time with the jet lag, and by extension, we aren’t getting too much sleep either! I will be teaching at Emanuel University this week, and I look forward to spending some time with the pastoral theology students. Pray that our time is fruitful.
