Sorin Prodan, pastor of Providence Church of Brasov, Romania, gives us an update of the growing church.
Our ministry in Brasov is growing continually. There is a sense of God’s presence and a spirit of fervent prayer in our people. We completed our forty days of fasting and prayer on the last day of February. Each person confessed how the Lord touched his or her life in specific ways or areas. Our focus was on seeking the Lord and preparing for a great harvest. Prayer has become a sweet time. I am happy to see more than seventy percent of the people attending our prayer services.
The preaching on Sunday morning has been powerful. I began preaching through the Gospel of Luke, which has been the backbone of the teaching in our church, and occasionally, two of the other brothers will preach on some specific needs. We are also training new preachers, who give short messages and exhortations during the prayer time or on Sunday morning. On Sunday night, we continue to study the parables of the Kingdom from Matthew 13.
Our church is in great need of a new location. Our current rented building has been crowded for the past few months whenever we meet. Because of this, we began looking for a place and eventually found one of the best properties in the whole city. It is located right by City Hall! The owner has completed the project with all the necessary approvals, which took him several years. We have met with some construction companies and have received some estimates regarding the costs. Now, we are praying for guidance in the decisions that we must make about the property. While we feel excited about what the Lord wants in this most strategic point in the city, we feel unworthy of such blessing. Please pray for us!
