Nursing Ministry

A mobile clinic in a poor area is always a blessed time.
First of all for the ones who serve the Lord. Secondly for the people who come and then look for redemption with a sincere heart.
ECM, together with Holy Trinity church and the Romanian American mission organized free consultations for the people in Budesti. The event was advertised amongst the people we have there each Sunday. Many came and waited patiently or not outside of the Christian Centre we rent. And I say many keeping in mind that there’s a heat wave over Romania at the moment. But God is good to us and to people who have not, yet, anything to hope for.
The ECM team helped with glasses, nursing, traffic control, driving and kids time, all for the glory of God.
A free pair of reading glasses as well as a copy of the New Testament meant a lot for some people who laid down everything that was bothering them. When asked for a prayer request many burst into tears and said the desperate situation they were in.

I understood that people are raising false objections when it comes to their own relationship with God. An “I don’t have the time” or “I can’t do it right now” means a different thing. It’s actually a sad bitter question called “Why?” which derives in “Why am I poor”, “Why is it happening to me?”, “Why do good things happen to bad people?” and so on.
I had no answer. I thought, who are we to question God? It does come naturally to be angry for many things. But we are but creations and He is the Almighty. Job had many questions and he was a righteous man. But in the end He broke down and said: “I know my Redeemer lives”.

Pray with us for the people in Budesti to come to the realization that our Redeemer does live, He is the True God and in Him there’s eternal life.
And please consider these verses from psalm 37
“Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers!
For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.
Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.”

In Christ,
For the ECM team, Ana Vasile
