Hughes News #75

"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"

Dear Friends,

We are back in Moldova after our furlough.  We squeezed a lot in those last couple of weeks before saying goodbyes and boarding our plane.  The Lord gave us good flights and after about a week we felt fully adjusted to the time zone here.

Last week we held a VBS at the Gross home.  We were excited to see 34 different neighborhood kids come throughout the week.  There were several who had come in previous years, as well as about 10 that we met for the first time.  For the week we averaged nearly 21 children a day.  Romanian is what most of the children speak, so I had my first opportunity to teach in that language.  I taught two days and David the other three.  His lesson Friday explained that Jesus is the only way of salvation, just as the ark was the only safety in Noah’s day.  No one took the opportunity to talk more about salvation.  We pray the Holy Spirit would continue to use the Word and that He would bring fruit in their hearts.

We are encouraged by the attendance to our weekly services and by the occasional first time visitors. We will repeat our VBS program in Soroca July 31-August 4.  Please pray that we will find children to come and that the Lord will use the week for his glory.

In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes

For Prayer:
1. Jacob’s family members S (health), M (spiritual condition)
2. Upcoming VBS in Soroca (July 31-August 4)
3. Wisdom as we make decisions for the upcoming months

For Praise:
1. Smooth trip from the US back to Soroca
2. Good first week of VBS!
3. More people at services, more visitors
