Personal Testimony of Josiah Harry.

My experience in Lipova, Arad, Romania was one that I will always remember. It was delightful to see God in action through His Holy Spirit, stirring the minds of people to make a decision to accept him. I came into a body of believers who were reserved and did not express much emotion, and the first few nights bordered on being somewhat challenging.

However, before the end of the seminar, those same people who at first did not display any sentiment to satisfy my western way of thinking were at ease with saying “Amen.” I definitely viewed their response as a positive step. I realized that if I affirmed these precious souls as it related to their identity in Christ Jesus, they could not help but to lay bare their offerings of thanksgiving in plain sight.

The people were the friendliest I have met, and the culture in general was undemanding and easy to get acclimated to. Also, the food was terrific--the best I have tasted in my life!

My time in Romania solidified my purpose, which is to “to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn.”
