This morning, I called my friend Alex Grigorescu to see how things went last night after I left open-air preaching. (I love street preaching, but I had to leave early: “Man of Steel” had just opened in Romania, and it needed me to go watch it.) Anyhow, Alex told me the preaching went well, but then he said, “Listen, brother, I have something to encourage your faith.”
Alex then began to tell me about his trip to the market this morning. On his way to pick up some fish, he saw an old beggar woman hunched over and unable to stand up straight. As he walked by her, Alex felt something in his Spirit. God wanted to do something.
So instead of merely giving her a New Testament or a tract, he asked her, “Crezi ca Iisus este Domnul? Do you believe Jesus is Lord?” “Da. Yes,” came her reply. “Crezi ca Iisus pot sa te vindeca? Do you believe Jesus can heal you?” “Da,” she said again.
