In June, Pastor Stephen Campbell and four other members of IBC Bonn embarked on a journey to support the ministry of the International Church of Bucharest. Planning for the trip began shortly after the IBC’s Ministry Leadership Conference in Lisbon at which Bill and Naty Tully shared of the continuing needs at their church due to the ongoing war and the diminishing donations.
Along the way, several other IBC churches got involved, including Hamburg, Darmstadt, Wiesbaden, Bratislava, and Budapest. In total, six IBC churches contributed gifts, letters, and finances to support our sister church in Bucharest. The team felt that it was only able to do a very little. “It was only a drop in the bucket of what is needed,” one team member said. But we should praise God that, according to Naty, “It was the right drop in the right bucket at the right time.” There is still much to do, but God has always proven Himself faithful to supply our needs when we need them. God was very gracious to all.
