Kent Olofsson, a participant in the Romania Scripture Blitz, recalls the following memory warmly: „I remember placing a New Testament on the bedside table of an elderly woman at a nursing home. I could not understand her words because she speaks Romanian, and my interpreter was not in the room. But the woman’s whole body language signaled gratitude. She held her New Testament to her chest with her arms folded. She bowed to me and the words coming from her mouth were expressions of gratitude and joy, and the words went straight to my heart. I was very moved.”
