Brother Danut Opris is responsible for the administration of the church in Draganesti-Olt. He and Florina Cazan have also started a new work in the village of Coteana. The location is a hard field because of the witchcraft and strong Orthodox opposition. This past month he sent this testimony from a recent experience in the home of an unsaved family.
Home visits are part of my ministry. I visit the church members to counsel them, to rebuke or correct them, and to encourage or help them. Recently, our church helped a non-Christian family with financial support. Their daughter needed mouth surgery. After we helped them, the girl’s mother stopped coming to church. The believers did not appreciate her negative response and were grumbling that the family had turned their back on us after we helped them. I told my brothers that this family might not come to church in the future, but we must not be upset if someone forgets the good that was done to him or her. We helped this girl for the Lord’s sake and not for her parents’ sake. We obeyed the Lord and must not be sorry for that. I am glad that God’s name was honored and the operation was successful.
