Six People Baptized in Chisinau, Moldova's Capital City
God is at work in Chisinau Logos Christian Church. Proclaiming the Gospel by conducting Bible studies, children’s programs, Puppet shows, orphanage work and through church planting, six people recently joined the church through water baptism. Everyone celebrated in this joyous occasion, when we saw the results of the work from our brothers and sisters serving our Lord there.
“It is a special day for us as a church and for these new brothers and sisters that are following our Lord’s command and getting baptized today. It is a very special day for every one of them, a day they were looking toward and prayed for. We need to have this kind of celebrations more often, at least each Sunday,” – Pastor of Logos Christian Church, Vasile Rusnac said.
Two people that were baptized, Nina and Tatiana, came from the city of Comrat, where a new church plant is underway. It is a city in Southern Moldova with a predominately Turkish population. God put His light in that city through a congregation committed to studying and proclaiming His Word.
Ivan is from Chisinau and was also baptized. He heard of the Lord from his wife who was saved and baptized last year. Since then he started attending our church, and just one year later made the decision to follow Christ.
Artyom and John are orphans that heard about Jesus from our people who worked in their school and invited them to attend the church and our Summer English Camp. One day John came to the church and said, “Pastor, I want to repent and to trust Jesus with all my heart and to follow Him.” We prayed with him and he trusted Jesus for his salvation.
Artyom trusted Jesus when we were talking with him in our van about his life. He said he wants to believe in Christ and follow Him in water baptism.
Eudokia was saved when our youth went door-to-door visiting people in the village of Tirnova, in Northern Moldova. Bible study groups were started and new people were introduced to Jesus. Eudokia has six small children. Her whole family, including her husband, started visiting our church regularly. She became part of our church body and is ready to serve the Lord.
After the baptism we had an hour of fellowship and celebration. Everybody personally congratulated the new church members and got to know them better. We are looking forward to see how God will use these brothers and sisters as they serve Him by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ to others!
