PRAYER LETTER FOR
Wednesday, July 14, 2004
Dear Pastors and Churches:
I greet you from Kentucky at the time of this writing and pray that God
is blessing you all in every area of your lives for Him!
I am told that attendance remains constant on Lordís Days and Wednesdays
in Bocsa and that Brother Raul is bringing good messages. Continue
to pray for him and for the meetings there, please.
Except for one Lordís Day (due to illness) Brother Raul and Brother Aurel
have been able to travel regularly to Oltenia for Sunday evening services
there. I understand that the faithful ones have continued faithful
in attendance. I am looking forward to baptizing some there when
I return to Romania.
There has been continued interest in our literature as expressed by some
requesting our materials repeatedly as well as some making requests for
the first time. This literature ministry has put us in contact with
two churches (?) which we understand want to go independent. I am
anxious to return to Romania to meet with these folk and assist them as
I am able, as they may need Scriptural baptism and organization.
A request that I come to preach has been received from some in that country.
We already have an invitation from at least one unaffiliated Baptist church
there to bring our literature and preach there. Please pray about
this matter. It will involve being away from Bocsa for at least a
Since my last writing, I have preached to the following Churches in the
U.S.: Faith Baptist Church (Elder Richard Turner), Kirksville, MO: Pleasant
Plains Baptist Church (Elder Timothy Hille), Pleasant Plains, IL: Berea
Baptist Church (Elder Lyle Thomas), Stonington, IL: Baptist Church of Brimfield
(Elder Fred Gebbink), Brimfield, IL: Salem Missionary Baptist Church (Elder
Billy Holbrook), Willow Hill, IL: West Milton Baptist Church (Conference)
(Elder Mark Clark), West Milton, OH: Grace Missionary Baptist Church (Elder
Bob Hopkins), Holly, MI: Home Baptist Church (Elder Dan Gordon), Mt. Morris,
MI: Grace Baptist Church (Elder Randy Graber), Fairborn, OH: New Testament
Baptist Church (Elder Joe Gadd), Norwood, OH: Faith Baptist Church (Elder
Ansil Campbell), Covington, KY: Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church (Elder Tom
Ross), Chesapeake, OH: and the Midland Missionary Baptist Church (Elder
Harry Balmer), Franklin, Furnace, OH. It seems that God has helped
in the preaching, though I have no knowledge of anyone coming to saving
faith in these meetings, and the Churches have certainly treated me as
royalty! My heartfelt thanks and appreciation to these and all the
Churches I have been privileged to preach to thus far this year!
I still intend on flying out of the States as near to the 15th of August
as is possible Ė all according to the will of God, of course. I must
pack some books for the English Language Bible Institute in Romania and
ship them while in Mantachie, Mississippi. Also I must rent a truck
and move the few things we have stored there to Denham Springs, LA.
Please pray also regarding these endeavors!
I see I am out of space! Please accept our appreciation for your
faithful financial support and prayers on our behalf and on behalf of the
work in eastern Europe. I urge you to continue in earnest prayer
for us and for the work there!
In the cause of God and truth,
Curtis and Janet Pugh
