Reaching Drug Addicts

I mentioned here about meeting Alexandru through a couple “random” events including a chance encounter with an Armenian man who happened to be in Bucureşti.  Of everyone I’ve ever met, Alex is the most clearly gifted and called as an evangelist; he’s got a deep passion for the lost and especially for the drug addicts.

In recent weeks, we’ve been speaking with him about helping to reach some of the addicts with the love of Jesus.  The statistics are nowhere near clear, but from what we’ve been learning, Bucureşti has around 20-30,000 men and women addicted to heroin.  We were told that at one local clinic 3000 men come for help with addictions each day, and the best the doctors can do is prescribe other drugs.  What these men need is Jesus.

Pray for God to give us wisdom in this and that he would close every door he doesn’t want us to walk through.
