Day: March 16, 2012
Today we conclude a week of teaching and ministry here at Emanuel University in Oradea, Romania. While many other schools are struggling to maintain their mission focus and support base, Emanuel has continued to stand strong and attract excellent students from throughout this region.
An excellent business school, school of social work, music and theology give Emanuel a broad appeal to college students who want to prepare for their life’s work in a committed Christian environment. George Tissiere and I have spent over fifteen hours in teaching time in the classroom and many extra hours enjoying the fellowship of students, faculty and administration.
I love both teaching and preaching, so in addition to the time in the classroom, I have been able to preach in chapel for the students and at the midweek service at Emanuel Baptist Church. Even working through translation, there was a great connection with both groups and the Lord blessed with His favor. There are some extraordinary men and women here doing excellent ministry in this part of the world.
Tomorrow we leave here and begin our trip on to India where we will be teaching at a pastors conference down in the southern part of the country. Thanks for all who have been praying! We have seen the effectiveness of your intercessions on our behalf!
