How thankful we are that we have a faithful, unchanging God controlling our lives. His wonderful Word gives us great stability in uncertain times. Covid 19 has brought difficulties, challenges and new opportunities using technology for Bible teaching and gospel outreach.

Below are a few details of assembly work for praise and fellowship in prayer about "What God hath wrought" in Romania. It is very important to underline that it is not our work, it is the Lord's work, and it is the Sovereign Lord who has worked and continues to work to His praise and for His eternal glory.

In late January 2020 and early March, before the lockdown restrictions, we were in Italy for ten days of Bible teaching in three Romanian speaking assemblies. We arrived back in Romania just before strict lockdown restrictions were imposed. As we could not travel, time was spent in personal Bible study, ministry meetings using Zoom for assemblies in Romania and Italy. We also checked literature for printing and regular Bible studies using a mobile phone with a new convert who just requested baptism. Sue has kept busy teaching English in our home to children and young people, when possible, due to the COVID 19 restrictions and checking literature translated into Romanian.

Last December, we received 100,000 calendars for 2021. These are sent to different areas ready for believers to distribute along with a gospel text and a tract to personal contacts and during gospel outreaches. There is a need to print different Gospel tracts for other occasions. The print runs for each lot will be 100,000.

During the Winter and Spring months, systematic Bible teaching will continue in Prahova and further afield. God willing, monthly studies on Saturdays will commence in the East of Romania in Gala?i and Tulcea.

Please Pray for us as we will be involved with different brethren in Moldavia (N.E. Romania) in a new gospel outreach initiative amongst the many assemblies in rural and urban areas. In the context of a rapidly changing world in general and Romania, this will be a long term work. In parallel with this, we are making preparations for this year's tent ministry.

Goods sent out for the tent work, and the people living in isolated communities is much appreciated. Those who receive the goods are very grateful and thank everyone for the hard work in purchasing, packing, and sending them.

May God bless and encourage you all as you work faithfully for Him in your various spheres of service.
