|"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"|
In the last few weeks, the Lord has put our team in contact with a few more believers in Soroca. Because of their ties to churches in other cities, the extent to which we will be ministering to them is unclear. We need wisdom to know how we can best encourage them in their spiritual walk.
In January, we began a midweek Bible study and prayer time. We are meeting at our apartment each Thursday. David and I plan to trade off teaching responsibilities each month.
We have adapted and translated a religious survey and plan to begin using it this week. When asked, many people here state that only God knows if they will go to heaven. Our prayer is that the survey will open doors to show individuals from God’s Word that they also can know about salvation.
Lord-willing in two weeks Viola will begin teaching a ladies Bible study. The lady who expressed interest in a study is not from Moldova, so Viola will be able to teach in English. She is eager to begin looking at Ephesians with Stephanie and “J.” Would you take a moment to pray for the study?
Hundreds of people pass through Soroca’s two open air markets every day. We would like to rent a booth in each market for a week in order to contact people and share the Gospel. However, the administration of one market told us that we must get permission from the mayor’s office. We hope to get the rest of our materials together this month and submit our request.
In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes
