Joh 16:24  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Gen 13:15  For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
Neh 2:18  …And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.


A brief history must be understood before the blessing can be fully digested.  The Logan family and the Sutek family came to Romania four years ago in Oct. 2004 to do what we could for the Lord in the short time before the false prosperity and materialism swept across eastern Europe and also before the rapture.  We began a church in a home but within 8 weeks we had rented a store front building for a decent price.  We paid rent until our contract expired in Aug. of 2007.  The new contract doubled the rent and put it far out of range for our budget.  In anticipation of this we renovated a cow barn on the Logan’s property (they also rent) and made it a beautiful church.  I would give $100 dollars to have some “before” photos of that cow barn. You just would not believe it.  It is more than sufficient for us but………………….it is out of the city.  We have virtually not grown since we moved out there.  It is just not at all convenient.  Via our vans we have been able to maintain our membership and attendance but we have prayed and asked for property of some kind which we can own inside the city of Brasov. Many of you have also prayed for this.  But this became increasingly more IMPOSSIBLE.  The prices of real estate have become some of the highest in any country in the world.  We prayed on and some of you prayed on.  God specialized in the IMPOSSIBLE.

 God chose to move upon the heart of a very rich man in Brasov to give us a building on a bit more than an acre of prime property.  Although we have not had proper opportunity to clearly witness to this man we do fully intend to. At present he is a Pentecostal. This is probably the second most common church affiliation here following eastern Orthodox. This building, though quite rough at present, can and will be renovated into our new church.  If the good Lord can use us to turn a cow barn into a nice church…the Lord can do it for us again.   Photos of this land, building, and our first work day here can be enjoyed via the internet at http://www.streetpreaching.com/pics/report/sr2008-11-17.htm. This building is ideally located for our ministry and we intend to make the most of it as soon as possible.

 While I am on that subject we invite anyone to email us and request to be included in our email list to receive the SWAT reports sent out with photos about every 10 days or 2 weeks. They are all archived on our website and provide a near complete history of our ministry in Romania more than four years ago.  Email is gsutek@streetpreaching.com  Web is www.streetpreaching.com help yourself.

 We continue with our regular evangelism through the fall and into the winter.  With Romania joining the EU and materialism flooding the region, this ministry continues to get more and more difficult.  We have 17,000 college students on our city and that seems to be the most fruitful of fields available to us. Many in our church spend whole evenings in the dorms visiting and evangelizing. We have a very high quality group of 6-8 college students in our church and four of these are in our Bible institute.  We praise the Lord for the opportunity to advance these serious students of the Word of God in the truths of that great book. With this new building it should only enhance these opportunities.

 We are all well and looking forward to the opportunities the future will afford us to serve our great King of Kings and Lord of Lords…the Lord Jesus Christ.

 Call us sometime on our US # that rings in Romania but costs you near nothing.  1-850-390-4003 but remember we are 7 hours AHEAD of New York City time.
