Hughes News #60

"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"

Dear Friends,
Last month we were able to talk with the mayor about renting booths in the markets.  We were a bit surprised when he told us that this question should be discussed with the markets’ owners because it is not within his jurisdiction.  We have not been able to talk to one manager and the other told us that all his booths are rented.  We will pursue this idea until we get a definite answer.
Last Wednesday “J” found out that her father-in-law had passed away.  With her going back to Germany for the funeral, we postponed her baptism that was scheduled for last Sunday.  Lord-willing we will be able to reschedule it when she returns to Moldova.
Most weeks David and I make new visits on Thursday and Friday and follow-up visits on Saturday.  So far, the follow-up visits have not yielded the opportunities we were seeking.  Very few people have been home and others have been less interested than they seemed at first.  We would appreciate your prayers for wisdom to know how to be diligent in our efforts without hounding people.  Please pray also for “M.”  She is a vendor that we have talked to several times.  She is open to discuss spiritual things and she sees the spiritual emptiness of many people’s religious traditions.  May the Holy Spirit work in her heart and lead her to salvation!
While most of you celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ last Sunday, we will be remembering it here in Moldova this Sunday, April 12.  Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!!
In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes
