Upon returning today from our eleven-day mission trip to Moldova and Romania, I have been gripped again first hand as to the purpose of Southeastern College. We exist to train workers for the vast harvest fields at home and abroad. “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few”- Jesus Christ.
We have seen firsthand how our graduates are bringing in a great harvest on these fields. Along with other members of Landmark Church, senior student, Vadim Popovici, and alumnus, Dustin Smith, and their wives accompanied us on this mission adventure 5,500 miles from home.
We were met on the mission field by three Southeastern alumni missionaries. Evangelist and Camp Builder (Camp Christ’s in Romania) Pavel Clipa, Church Planters Shanna Pascaru and her husband Victor and Church Planters, Nick and Candy Corlata, who both pastor soul-winning churches.
Our team conducted four evangelistic crusades in places where the gospel is not proclaimed. The team preached and shared testimonies in seven local churches, encouraging the pastors and their families. Our team led a three-day Vacation Bible School in a poor village, with 70 children attending.
A clinic was conducted to train pastors and missionaries in local church ministry. A meeting was held with the administrators of the Baptist Theological University in Chisinau, Moldova to discuss joint missionary ventures in the future. A local church that was planted by Southeastern alumni, Chip and Elizabeth Henley, is completing a new sanctuary and educational facility outside the capital city of Moldova, and we were able to encourage the pastor and his wife.
All in all, Christ was glorified, over 150 souls publicly professed faith in Christ for the first time, believers were encouraged, and scores of commitments were made for service to Christ.
Southeastern exists for this purpose and may the Lord add His blessing upon our passion to produce more workers for the field.
