Alex Palade, one of our university missionaries, is a passionate evangelist who longs to bring people to Jesus. Fearless in his approach, he faithfully plants gospel seeds wherever he ministers. The following are a couple of his encounters last month.
Irecently met an Orthodox man named Eduard. His mother (a Romanian) and his father (a Muslim)are currently living in Syria. Eduard told me that he was feeling lost, and he had this emptiness in his heart. He didn’t know how God saw him or how he could be saved. I shared the gospel with him, and he listened to me very carefully. In the end, he told me he wanted to come to Christ. I shared with him my personal testimony, and he asked me about baptism. I explained to him why we are baptized and that we are baptized after we believe in the Lord Jesus. He asked me about the significance of the cross, and I then invited him to come to Providence Church the next day, as I was going to preach about the cross. He came to church and understood the message about the cross of the Lord Jesus.
That night, my daughter felt very ill, and I had to call an ambulance. I could feel that there was a spiritual battle. While the doctor was seeing my daughter, my wife and I were able to share the gospel with Ms. Felicia, who had come there with her daughter. She listened to me quietly, and when I shared with her from the Word of God, she began crying. It was wonderful to share the gospel with a person who had no idea how she could be saved.
