Comarnic

Comarnic is a town located in the Carpathian mountains. Besides the main street and a few others, any other road seems an adventure to take. They are hard to get to. It’s the same with the people. Easy to talk to and to get to at first, agreeing with anything you might tell them or give them, and short after getting back to their old ways from which they don’t want to come out. This is what the Best News in their lives does to people. Some can’t wait to hear it and some just run and hide from the Truth that reveals their lives. The Outreach we had in the middle of July brought to church more people that we’ve expected. But at the follow-up visits they soon became too busy or too distracted to pay attention to anything even remotely related to God.

In most cases, it’s very convenient to call yourself an orthodox: you’re not faced with the Bible – not many have read it or are advised to read it – you’re not supposed to go to church that often – you’d be a fanatic – and as long as you keep the "holy tradition" of the church you’re fine.

We are visiting now a granny who cares for 4 children – both kids’ parents died. Each time we would open our mouth to read God’s word, she would interrupt and say something bad about the late daughter in law or about something that broke in the house. We’re persistent, but not pushy.

And most people we meet in Comarnic are like that.
As we said before, we’re not giving up on Comarnic.
Pray with us!

“Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38)
