Moise Marian continues to press on in his ministry in Bucharest among the Gypsy community in spite of reoccuring cancer. While he is experiencing some relief from the symptoms through a prescibed diet, he needs our prayers. Recently, he shared the following update on his health:
“My last medical test results were not good, so the doctor put me on an even stricter diet. For three months, I must eat only raw food, boiled black rice and homemade bread. This diet made me loose even more weight and I feel weak. But I am thankful to God that I am not confined to bed.”
Brother Moise reports this month on his ministry:
In January we started having a 40-day prayer and fasting chain with the church. We are asking the Lord to bless the ministry this year, to make us living testimonies and to show us His will for our lives.
I thought about starting an evangelistic campaign in January to encourage the church members to get more involved. I gave them special cards on which they must put down names of non-believers from their sphere of relationships. They must pray for those people and talk to them about God. The next step is to meet again and testify as to how it is going. Then we will have several special church services and invite these people to church. After that the pastors will visit them in their homes where we intend to share the Gospel with them and invite them to church again. This project is for six months and our target is the people that were blessed with food supplies and other gifts.
I also tried to talk to different people from in and outside the church. I approached them with God’s truth. I did this with nine people. One of them is Mishu. I first met him several years ago when he came to our medical clinic with his wife. I invited him to church several times, but he always found an excuse not to come. Recently, I met him again on the street. He was very upset because his wife had died a month ago and the relatives that had come to help him with the funeral had stolen his money. I tried to comfort him by encouraging him to look to God. He wanted to know where his wife was now. He kept telling me that his wife had prayed to receive the Lord when she came to our medical clinic. He also confessed he hesitated to trust the Lord back then, but he was doing the same thing now. I invited him to church and told him that God was still waiting on Him.
I tried to preach the Gospel to the young people this month. I talk to five teenagers. They were really addicted to their cell phones and the internet. So I told them they could find Christian resources on the internet and use their time wisely this way, seeking to know God, who can solve their problems. Two of them were interested and said they would like to have a Bible. So, I invited them to church to give them Bibles.
