Greece (MNN) — The COVID-19 pandemic forced e3 Partners to put short-term medical mission trips on hold. But Anne Lucas says they continued their work over the internet.
She tells the story of two women (named S and V for security reasons) who were refugees from the Middle East staying in Greece. “On our virtual trip we were actually able to share the Gospel with S. And she became a believer via zoom, which was pretty incredible,” Lucas says,
“About two weeks later, we were able to watch her be baptized in a bathtub, in another refugees’ apartment.”
Now, Lucas has resumed traveling in preparations for more mission trips. She returned to Greece and met S and V in person.
One day, V began weeping from the trauma she had endured. Lucas says S began to share the hope of Jesus with her. “We talked and shared with her, sharing the Gospel with her. And she said, ‘Yes, I want Jesus.’ We all broke down crying. It was so exciting.” Both women now attend Bibles studies and stay in contact with e3 Partners.
