Westminster Biblical Missions Eastern Europe News

Rev. Douglas Schlegel and Rev. Howard Sloan returned from a recent trip to Szék, Romania. The trip started off on a high point with a confirmation service for a young woman named Emőke Vigh. Over two Sundays and the six evenings in between, Rev. Schlegel and Rev. Sloan brought messages from the Parables in the Gospel of Matthew. Through parables like the Sower, those in attendance were called to genuine faith in Christ and away from formal religion.

The preaching was well received. The amazing thing is that the livestreams from a few of the nights had almost 2,000 views with viewers from Hungary, Romania, Ukraine and elsewhere. Pastor István’s reach is well beyond the small village of Szék. There is tremendous potential for growth from this small village and the Gospel labors of István.

One important development in the ministry is the opportunity to rent a small facility in Gherla (Szamosújvár in Hungarian). There is already interest in this town for a weekly Bible study and possibly Sunday services. Szamosújvár is 16 km from Szék. It is a larger town with more opportunity for growth.
