Ruxi is part of a team that evangelizes and disciples students from various universities in Bucharest, Romania. She has had some major health problems over the past few years, but in spite of the physical and emotional burden, she presses on to engage students with the gospel. In this report, Ruxi gives a brief update on her health and then shares about her ministry endeavors.
I have just started a very aggressive treatment. Please pray that I will be able to bear and endure it, as the doctor expects me to feel very sick. Please pray that the doctor would have wisdom in the treatment she prescribes.
The highlight of this past month was the opportunity to befriend and witness to my new neighbor. I invited her over for dinner one Saturday, and afterward we took a walk in the park. We got to know each other better and had a good time. I also invited her to come to church with me, and to my joy she accepted! She came the next day on Sunday morning and then attended our small Bible study group. In the small group we discussed the gospel, and two people shared their testimonies. I was so glad that the Lord gave us this wonderful opportunity! My neighbor then came to visit me another afternoon and met one of the sisters, who invited her to the student evangelistic retreat in July. I am amazed at seeing how many opportunities the Lord has given me in the past few weeks not only to witness to her but also to introduce her to other believers who befriended her as well. Please pray that the Lord would work in her heart and cause her to seek Him. I gave her a New Testament and several Christian books. Please pray that she would read them, believe on Christ, and be saved.
We continued our outreaches in the dorms and are grateful for each opportunity to share the gospel. On my most recent visit, I had a very long discussion with a guy; even though he had many wrong ideas, he listened to the gospel. Even when we got ready to leave, he still wanted to talk and came even to the subway. I am always amazed when I see young people who would stay with us for a long time to listen to the gospel! Indeed, the fields are ready but the laborers are so few. Please pray that all these seeds planted will bear forth fruit for the glory of God and the salvation of many souls!
Recently, I had the great joy of witnessing the baptism of a woman with whom I have been studying the Bible for the last two-and-a-half years. I am so encouraged as I see her determination to follow Christ in spite of the problems she has with her unbelieving husband. Over time, I have seen how God keeps strengthening her steps on His path. May the Lord make her a light for her lost husband and give her wisdom to raise her children!
