After the conference that we had on October 15th, students from Ploiesti, Oradea, Galati, and Brasov and I did personal evangelism on the campus. We made teams of two and shared the Gospel with 50 students. Ten of them wanted to talk to us again. Some students told us to leave the campus because we didn’t have any authorization and we were a sect.

I met two freshmen and we talked about their worldviews. Then I asked for permission to share with them about my worldview and then shared the Gospel with them. They didn’t know that Christ had been punished for our sins or how they could make peace with God. This was something new for them and they thanked me for telling them all those things. When I left, I saw them reading the Gospel tracts I had given them. I was so glad to find some young people so open to the Gospel.

Another student also had a friendly attitude. He was smoking a cigarette and drinking his coffee. I shared the Gospel with him and he was surprised to hear what God says about sin, hell and judgment. I told him about Christ’s sacrifice and how he could be reconciled with God. He said he wanted to. He had a New Testament that he had received from an Adventist colleague. The young man told me that all those things were new to him.

I went to Ploiesti for an evangelistic outreach. We had a prayer meeting first and two students from Angola joined us. I talked to the doorman and he was very open to the Gospel message. He understood for the first time in his life that he was an immoral person and that he was going to hell. It was wonderful to tell him what Christ had done to forgive us.

Paolo and I talked to three students.  One of them felt the burden of sin, but the other two said they were agnostics. When burdened one understood that he was in a dangerous situation, he tried to say that there was no hell. I could feel the battle for his soul. After hearing the Gospel, all of them admitted that they were going to hell and were eager to hear how they could escape eternal condemnation. The burdened one said he wanted to be born again, but he also loved sin. He had read from the Bible and knew he was not pleasing before God. In the end, another one said he would start reading the Bible.

I went to the students’ campus in Brasov, where I met a couple of more students. They didn’t know they could know God through Jesus Christ. After I told them what the Bible says about sin, they realized they were going to hell and were eager to hear the Good News. They said they were curious now to read the Bible. It was a pleasure to talk to these two young people. May the Lord have mercy on them!

I met a German young man. He was our son’s roommate in college. My son invited him to visit Romania and our family. I had been praying for this young man who used to be an atheist. My son explained the Gospel to him and his heart started seeking the truth. I shared the Gospel with him and he realized he was going to hell. I told him how Christ was punished in our place and that he could only be saved through repentance and faith in Him. He was very open to the Gospel message. He is reading the New Testament and he is also looking for a church, where the Word of God is being preached in München. I was glad to see this young man seeking God.

I also shared the Gospel with two more students. They didn’t know they were murderers, adulterers, enemies of God and dead in their sins. They understood for the first time that they were going to hell and they were willing to find out how they could escape it. I told them about Christ’s sacrifice and that we can only be saved through faith in Him. It was a pleasure and a comfort for me to preach the Word of God to these young people.

I talked to young man and he believed that God had a good opinion about him, because he just felt so. He believed that God was only love. I told him that God could not consider the guilty “not guilty,” because He is a holy God. I couldn’t go on because he couldn’t listen to me anymore.
