Your Last Breath
As you take your last breath on this Earth your eternity will have already been decided. That decision was your choice. You only have two choices, Heaven or hell, when deciding your eternity. Every one of us has to make this choice, the government will not help you, your parents and friends cannot help, nor can any amount of money make this decision for you. As believers, we are called to tell others about Jesus and share the Gospel with them. That goes for all of us, not just pastors, Sunday school teachers, missionaries and so on, we are all called to share the Good News.
I do not say all this to convict you but I write to remind you of the seriousness of sharing the Gospel and ask you to begin praying specifically for our summer evangelism outreaches better known as Love Moldova. The outreaches begin in June and run through the end of August with eight weeks of intense evangelism all across Moldova. The outreaches include village/children’s programs, river adventure, trekking, construction, boys & girls camps, and several others.
These outreaches are our main way to reach the least-reached in Moldova with the Gospel. We will have over 30 teams going to 60 plus villages and coming into contact with 5000 to 6000 Moldovans. That is a lot of people in a short time that will hear the Gospel. Some of these people will hear the Gospel for the first time and others will have heard it many times, either way people will repent and come to know the Lord. So as I was saying their eternity hangs in the balance and no one knows when their last breath will be. They have to make a choice and we as an OM team must open our hearts and spread the Gospel and His love in order to make a positive difference maybe ending this continuous downward circle of poverty, alcohol and darkness. We are to be a light for the lost just as Acts 13:47 says.
For this is what the Lord has commanded us:
I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth. Acts 13:47 NIV
I ask you to begin praying specifically for our OM team, the mission teams coming to serve with us, and the people of Moldova. For our team pray for our hearts to be pure and full of God’s love so our minds are directed to say the right words when talking to the lost. Also pray for the logistics of the entire summer, giving everyone rest when needed and for the programs to be prepared in a timely matter.
Please pray for the mission teams arriving from all part of the world. Pray for their safety, their health and an understanding of Moldovan culture. Pray that they will be open to being flexible. Pray that they arrive with their hearts open to hear from God. And most importantly pray for the people of Moldova. Pray their hearts are softened and they have a curiosity to want to hear the Gospel. A willingness to want to know about God like never before and pray that any blinders the Orthodox beliefs has will be broken.
The Lord is doing a mighty work in Moldova and this summer will be no different but I have to wonder what could be possible if we are all prayed up, our hearts are pure and clean and our eyes are focused on Him. God is good, all the time God is good. Please take a moment and look at this photo collage, look into the faces of these people for they are lost, dying and going to hell, they just want someone to tell them the Good News.
Will you promise to pray with me and our team every day from now until the end of August. If you commit to this I know you will be blessed for there is power in prayer like you have never seen or felt before. Please pray with me for the lost because they may only have one last breath. Also, if you have read this and you are unsure about where you will spend eternity send me a message we can talk more. Thanks for your time and prayers, be blessed.
