Short-term workers Rebekka and Markus, from Switzerland, spent three months serving with OM Romania. Rebekka shares an emotional testimony after an outreach with the OM Transit team:
During the days in the little town of Amara, we visited neighbouring villages where we were blessed to meet so many lovely people! One day we visited a blind couple and two elderly women. Their families and neighbours heard that a team of foreigners were coming and they all gathered to meet us and listen to what we had to share. We sang songs, prayed and shared the Gospel message.
At the end of the programme, while saying our goodbyes, we saw tears in their eyes. The elderly and the blind said they all felt nearly guilty that they couldn’t go to church anymore because of their age and disability. Their desire to have fellowship with God’s children was so great!
We tried to remind them that the church is not a building but the people who serve the Lord. It deeply moved them that God had sent the church to their home, and that these young people came from all over the world to pray for them. Indeed, to them, we were a miracle!
Oh, what a feeling it is to know you can be someone’s miracle, just by allowing yourself to be in the right place where God is calling you to be!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” – Romans 8:28 (NIV)
