Baba Lina, Kayla, and Baba Lucretia
The situation in Calatele is somewhat better as Fery, Basca and Danut remain faithful. Sadly, Mircea and his family left for Germany where they will likely beg for a living. When we arrived on Thursday, Silvana informed me that Danut’s daughter Alina was to be married that weekend. Alina is 17 which is considered old for marriage. Danut had tried to wait as long as possible, but many gypsies were insisting on buying her for their sons. In a culture where selling your daughter is profitable, Danut chose to decline any money, and instead asked the family only that his daughter be treated well. Thankfully, we were able to visit with Danut’s family and pray for Alina on Friday night. I loved getting to introduce Kayla to this very special family.
Nicu is now helping with the youth service at a Pentecostal church in Huedin on Saturday nights and has also been asked to do some of the preaching on Sunday evenings. While we were in Sancraiu, Nicu invited Kayla to attend a youth meeting with him and Leo (Nicu and Silvana’s son). Kayla was able to play guitar while the youth practiced their songs for the Sunday evening service. On Sunday evening, I was asked to give my testimony and Kayla was asked to sing. Silvana and I noticed many of the women weeping as Kayla sang Amazing Grace.
