“Through (Jesus Christ) we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of His name among all the nations.” –Romans 1:5
504 hours (give or take a few).
That’s when we leave.
Excited doesn’t even begin to cover the emotions I have for Real Truth Matters’s upcoming two-week trip to Eastern Europe on April 8th.
If you add in:
You might have a better understanding of my feelings. But any way you look at it, I’m excited to see God work.
Michael Durham, my pastor, boss, second dad and director of Real Truth Matters (so many titles), will be preaching/teaching/hosting four conferences aimed at discipling pastors so they can, in turn, disciple church planters and carry out the Great Commission according to God’s Word in the countries of Romania and the Republic of Moldova.
Through these conferences and meetings, we will also be launching the Romania Missionary Fellowship. You can read more about this exciting (!!!) new ministry when you read Bro. Michael’s blog post by clicking here.
My co-worker and friend, Joseph Durham, and I will be doing the audio and video for these conferences to put online for pastors unable to attend so they can also learn and mature more in their faith as they seek to advance the kingdom of God and shake the gates of hell. Through our time there I’ll also be updating everyone back home with blogs, FB and Twitter updates and pictures.
What you can do
Please pray for us.
- Pray that God would be glorified and His Gospel would go forth declaring His glory (literally) among the nations.
- Pray for Bro. Michael as he prepares these next several weeks and as he teaches that God’s Spirit would be the One doing the talking.
- Pray for the translator and Director of the Romania Missionary Fellowship, Florin Vasilu, as he and Bro. Michael work alongside each other to disciple these men.
- Pray for travel and energy for us (travel there and back will be essentially a two-day event).
- Pray that people would be saved and that those saved would mature in their faith and begin to disciple others.
If you feel led to give financially, that would be a huge blessing as it costs $3,500 for plane tickets for the three of us, not counting the added expenses of hosting four conferences and travel once we get to Romania.
Needless to say we need God to help us. I am praying that He moves on you to do what you can to help us begin this missionary movement that is based upon the simple method of the apostles, “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2). The early church’s evangelism was centered on planting churches where the Gospel was not. That is all we are trying to do. –Michael Durham
