Health Fair in Braila

Health Fair in Braila
This morning Dawn and I went to visit with a team who were here conducting a health fair in front of the Hotel Triain which is close to the city center. We went to offer our help if it were needed and to see a few friends from ServingHIM Medical Ministries who were sponsoring the event. This was an interesting morning as we soon found out that they had this event well defined and we were not really needed at all. So, we tried to engage a few people who were there and shared some time encouraging the medical team. ServingHIM has been coming here for several years and they have become very efficient at...

Funeral for Brother Iosef Stefanuti

Funeral for Brother Iosef Stefanuti
Yesterday we attended the funeral services of Brother Iosef Stefanuti. I refer to him here as brother because he was that to me in Christ. This mighty man of God was remembered and memorialized by the hundreds of people who attended the service at Holy Trinity Church in Braila.

The service was simply beautiful and the Holy Trinity Choir sang a few songs which I know made Brother...

One of God’s mighty saints has been called home. Pastor Iosef Stefanuti passed away today at around 5:00.

I can recall our first meeting at the Diaconia Medical Clinic where he served the people of Braila after his retirement from the pastorate at Holy Trinity Church. Dawn and I were in town looking for an apartment and met Iosef and got to hear a little testimony from him about how...

Gene Lamberth Shares at HTBC
Today at Holy Trinity Church in Braila, Gene Lamberth shared a great sermon with us about the depth and greatness of the salvation experience. He discussed it in the terms of being saved in spirit, body and soul. Gene, whom we have had the pleasure of meeting and talking with about our ministry endeavors here, is a retired dentist from Texas and is connected to Diaconia Medical Center. He has been here in Braila for a few weeks now uplifting and under-girding the staff at Diaconia. He and I have had a couple of discussions already about how we might be able to come along side of them in ministering to...

Meeting of the Minds

Meeting of the Minds
Yesterday I had a good meeting with some of our friends at the Diaconia Medical Center. This organization is trying it’s best to develop a unique combination of professional medical services and a sincere form of Christian ministry. So, how do you go about that and achieve a good balance between the two. In our meeting, Gene Lamberth and Peter Dragusanu who are representatives of the clinic, expressed their deep desire about ministering to their patients spiritually as well as physically. I tried to give some input about our possible involvement as ministry partners.  So, the brainstorming...
