In the face of opposition from the Orthodox Church in Fieni, Florin Stan shares the following story of how God turned disappointment into joy.

“Before the VBS, we made a phone call to make sure that everything was OK. The authorities were very distant and told us that the approval to use the auditorium was no longer valid, because the there was pressure from the Orthodox priests. As we had given out invitations to the VBS, we went there to wait for the children and to find a solution, because we couldn’t use the auditorium anymore. There was a park in the neighborhood, and we thought that we might have the VBS there. Several children showed up and there was also a young lady with two children. We had talked to her before the light of the gospel had started shining in her heart. I explained to her what happened and she said she would bring her children to the VBS in Fieni. She did so and the Lord continued searching her heart.

She came to church on Sunday and burst into tears on several times. She said she realized now how wrong she was and that she regrets now the way in which she had lived her life. On the other hand, she said she couldn’t believe how simple everything was. Now she is intensely reading the Bible and has quit smoking. Her salvation is a good sign for the ministry in Pietrosita.”
