HeartCry missionary Lore Gal has served on the university campuses in Bucharest, Romania, for many years. Her ministries have included evangelism, discipleship and spiritual mothering. We rejoice that Lore that will be getting married in a few week. In her recent report she shared the following:

We are at the end of the university year and students are officially on vacation. As we look at the whole year we are encouraged that in spite of the Covid virus situation the Lord worked among the students, drawing them to Christ or growing them spiritually. God gave us wisdom on how to use the current situation for His Kingdom. Since the beginning of the lockdown, we organized online conferences about hope in Christ in the midst of fear. We invited speakers from all over Romania to have Gospel presentations.

One of the students who came to the ski camp was very touched by the Gospel presentations and after the event she continued to come to an evangelistic small group. Her first question was, “How can a man be saved?” She was glad to hear that forgiveness of sins is given by grace through faith in Christ and not through our own merit. After the lockdown she attended the online conferences and continued to read the Bible and ask questions. When she finished the gospels she said the verse she liked the most was John 3:18, “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” We thank the Lord for His work and continue to pray that He leads her to repentance and faith in Christ!

One of our freshmen shared with us this testimony about her first year. “The student ministry helped me not to feel lonely in such a big and new city. After I got to know some of the believers, I realized this is my place, near these students. I had wonderful fellowship with them and felt a part of one family that serves the Lord. They were my spiritual family in which I needed to grow in faith and the teachings of the Bible. Different activities helped me acclimate with my new identity in Christ and become bold in being a daily testimony to people around me. Osceb made me feel at home.”
