As the New Year started out Mike was invited to a retreat with a church from Ploiesti to speak to their youth on relationships with parents, professors and church leaders.
It was a wonderful weekend full of hikes in the mountains, fun in the snow and great discussions as students wrestled with applying Biblical principles to their relationships.
I, Mike, was very encouraged by the fact that in the leadership of this group there are 6 people who had been involved with the student ministry in Ploiesti and were now were integrated into a local church and are using their gifts to serve university and high school students. It gave me a sense of how the student ministry across Romania is truly helping to prepare students to enter the church and serve there. Please pray that each year students would graduate from the university and seek ways to serve in their local church!
