Comarnic

"Not to us, Lord, not to us but to Your Name be the glory, because of Your love and faithfulness." Psalm 115:1
We praise God because in December we prayed over changing our approach to the people in Comarnic. And thus came to life the Kid’s Club, a place where kids can learn for free English and Spanish play together and do crafts.

We are excited to meet every two weeks, for now, with kids who want to make a better use of their time, on Sunday morning, at 10 am. The young people in Campina help. It’s a beautiful fellowship. God reminds us though that behind our excitement there’s a very fierce spiritual battle, for every soul, for every man. The enemy roars like a lion, the apostle Peter tells us. In deed he does. Last time we met the 11 kids 2 weeks ago. Now, 11 is a lot for Comarnic, a mountainous little town with people that don’t want anything to do with repented ones, with people of “other religion”. Yesterday morning we had fewer kids. And now we know why. It seems that the priest in the neighborhood found out about our kids club and he simply forbid them to come to any of our meetings.

No matter how ridiculous may seem the priest’ threats and interdictions, we must realize that in the orthodox countries – such as Romania, Greece, Russia – and especially in small places like Comarnic, the word of a priest weighs a lot and his influence is very high. May our God still the waters in this place!

We are not discouraged. We don’t want to be discouraged. In a very strange way, we are happy. The Gospel does disturb and leads to persecution. We are living the Matthew 5 verse; we are blessed to suffer for Christ’ Name.
Will you pray with us that the Lord would establish His Word in Comarnic? May His light shine in the dark corners of Comarnic’s heart!
“He will bless those who fear the Lord - small and great alike.” Psalm 115:13
