Merry Christmas and blessed New Year!

Because of His love God created us , when we were HIS enemies far from HIM dead in our sins ,HE came to save us ,to give us a new life ,a new name,a new position in Heaven. HE gave us a place in HIS Royal family,and all this because of HIS love.
Christmas speak to us about God's love,God who came in the flesh to die for us .
Isaiah 9/6 We were in trouble and God gave us a child ,a Son was born to us.
But HE is not just a Child but :" Wonderful Counselor,The mighty God, The everlasting Father,The Prince of Peace." He is Emanuel- God is with us!
We love you and we are praying for you here in Chisinau ,Moldova!
God bless you,
Pastor Julian ,Natella and the Church in Chisinau!

We are in Istanbul!

God is great and faithful! We were led to come to Istanbul after we had some
visa problems in Moldova. We are praying that God will lead us and help that we will have a year visa in Moldova. We have total peace about the situation ,we know that Jesus builds HIS Church,we are just tools in His hands. Please pray for our precious Church there. They are doing great walking by faith with God in their call. We are preparing for Christmas with carols and we are planing to invite people to come to sing and celebrate with us the birth of Christ Jesus our precious Saviour.Also we are going to have a team of 4 people from Baku ,Azerbaijan coming to stay with us for one and half month.Please pray for their trip and for their time in Moldova that will be for the glory of God .Natella with the ladies are preparing handmade Christmas gifts and will participate with them in a Christmas exposition. They will sell this gifts and the money they will have will help someone to go to European Conference in Budapest. Please keep this in prayer also.
How I told you we are in Istanbul with the Church and we are doing very good enjoying the time with God and the team here .We have very good time with people in the street sharing with them the Gospel and love of God.
Few days ago I was speaking to a young man in the park and at the end I invited him to come in the evening to the Church . He came ,we were practicing together for Christmas singing carols ,after with Niyazi were staying with him speaking answering his questions till 12.00 at the night. He came to stay with us and were continuing fellowship . In the morning at 6.00 we woke up and continue speaking.When he left for school he said that this was the best day in his life. Praise God !!
There are so many people like him in this city and in this world who are looking for someone to care for them Psalm 142/4"no man cares for my soul".We care because we have the One who is love living in us. HE made us able to care , to love ,to seek the lost.
We love you very much ! Please pray for us for our trip back to Moldova ,for Christmas time and for our time here in Istanbul. We are planing to come back here in January. Also for the conference with Pastor Matti Sirvio in Moldova in February. If you will like to come please let me know.
God bless you ,
Pastor Julian and Natella

Claudia Schneider-God is good!

God is good! He really IS!!!

Sometimes I don't realize how He is working in me, but later, when I look back, I can see it. God blessed me very much in these past months – in so many ways.
- When I was on holiday with my parents I had the possibility to pray for my mom together with her and it seems there is a way open now that I can continue to do so, even if it will be only over the phone (as I am in Moldova and she is in Switzerland).
- God speaks to me through His word, which is awesome! Lately I listened to a message about the character of God, and the preacher emphasised how much God longs to have fellowship with me. And it is my choice if I want this or not. The next morning I had this thought: God says thank you for what I do for Him! This was a very revolutionary thought for me… because although I know about His grace and love I still had the conviction, that He is the one who commands, and I have to do. But now I start to understand that He is not like this. Suddenly I see that fine part of God who longs to be loved by us… it is hard to describe, but wonderful to meditate about it!
- I don't see enough support coming in for me at the moment, and I really struggled with this. I started to pray about it, and to proclaim that He will care for me. The situation is still the same, but now I have peace in my heart and I am sure that God will provide everything I need – it is so good to have a Father in heaven in whom we can trust.
- A little thing that really showed me God's love. While I was home I was invited to a wedding. I knew what I would wear, but it was cold and I needed to have a jacket which fits – but I did not have. On the day of the wedding I got up and started to think what I could wear and suddenly I had this thought in my mind: "Don't worry what you will wear!" and I said: "yes, Lord, you are right" and I was calm. Then my mother came and suggested that we could go to ask the neighbour if she has something. So we went, and instead of getting just a jacket, I also received a very nice dress to wear! When the other girls I went with started to talk about how long they tried to find the right thing I could tell them how God provided for me!
Thank you for praying for me. I know that this is the most important thing for my ministry here. Please continue to pray for the salvation of my parents and healing for my dad (he has cancer). Many greetings from Moldova .

Seeking for living water?

God is faithful!Many people in this place are looking for answers . They are looking for someone to satisfy their thirst.There is such a joy when they find Jesus .I think that we have such a privilege to share Christ with people and to be coworkers with God.Romans 10/13-17, people need to hear in order to believe,to hear the Word of Christ in whom name they can be saved by believing in Him.People need to hear and God call us to go to tell them. Thank you for praying for the lost ,and for that you obey God by going out to preach the Gospel! God bless you!
