From a diverse yet highly sensitive part of AGWM’s Eurasia region, AGWM team members share news of forward motion of God’s work to save, heal and deliver. Though social distancing orders prevent AGWM personnel from visiting communities they previously served in, believers indigenous to those communities are stepping forward and being dramatically used by Jesus. Following is one such story, shared by AGWM personnel.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the kingdom of God continues to advance among the Roma (also known as Gypsies).

Before the lockdown, Vasily (name changed) spent several days with one of the new house churches. Vasily was exuberant when he shared what happened: Six people were baptized in water, two were set free from demonic possession, and one was commissioned to start a house church in a nearby village!

Perhaps the most encouraging part of Vasily's time with this Roma house church took place after his meetings with them. After a full day of meetings, he and five Roma believers traveled to two different villages where they preached the gospel to other Roma and prayed for the sick and demon-possessed.

Our hearts long to be with Vasily and all our dear friends in his area. But we have been sending recordings of short sermons and keeping in touch by phone with various house churches and leaders. We also keep in touch with our Muslim friends.

Please join us in praying for the Spirit of God to continue powerfully touching the hearts of Roma and Muslim friends as local believers reach out to them virtually. Pray also for health and for supernatural strength and peace for them and for all our team members.

How encouraging, in the midst of this worldwide upheaval, to remember Jesus' words: "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14, NKJV).
