Quick request, May 31st

Dear Friends

Can I ask you for your prayers as today I fly to Romania and on the 2nd June as Traian and I drive from Alba Iulia to Sofia, Bulgaria. We imagine the journey will take the day. Pray for travelling mercies and for the border crossing between Romania and Bulgaria.
Please pray on the 3rd as we meet with Robert & Borislav and talk about OAC and how it all works. Pray that God would have His way in this situation.
We will leave Sofia on the 4th and travel back to Alba Iulia.
On the 5th I am going to Carasebes (south’ish Romania) with Traian and the team for a day’s outreach programme. Pray that people will come to know the living Christ.
The remaining days of the trip are ‘fluid’ at present please pray that they will be used for Gods glory.

Thank you

Update April 14th

Dear Praying Friends

Here I am more than half way through my visit to Romania having stayed at Cluj with the Petrisors and in Alba Iulia with the Opruta's and team. I have also visited Vatra Dornei in the north and been with a group of Christian and non Christian teenagers to visit a cave near Alba Iulia...except they didn't tell me I had to climb a very steep hill so I didn't actually see the cave because I turned back after about 75 metres. Anyway it was a good day we visited some rocks on the way back and I was able to climb to those.

On Sunday I went with Traian to his Church and helped him lead the study at a teenage class, we studied Mk 8 vs 1-21. I think it went well.

On Monday (12th) we drove out of Alba to see an 'alternative' camp site for the teenage summer camp usually held at Bethany camp. It was acceptable.

Today Wed (14th) I am going back to Cluj and will be there until Monday (19th) Cristi and I have to see the archetect this afternoon about the new building at Bethany and then Cristi and I are going to spend three days at the camp working, 'doing odd jobs'

Please pray for strength for that!! I'm preaching in a Church near Cluj on Sunday, pray for that too (remember here in Romania it is 2 hours ahead of GB time)

I'm back in GB on the 22nd April

Thank you for your prayers
