Project "The Fig tree" - Lotus Therapeutic Center Gherla

Another moral-educational project takes place in the Gherla Penitentiary, the Lotus Therapeutic Center, a project titled "The Fig tree", a motto: "Have patience with me, God has not finished my corners all the way"
Project "The Fig tree" - Lotus Therapeutic Center Gherla

The project addresses to women deprived of liberty in the Lotus Therapeutic Center within the Gherla Penitentiary and is coordinated by the pastor of the Church of the Living River Church Cluj-Napoca, Romeo Popan.

We live in a society in which values are negotiated, virtues become relative and morality has regressed. This phenomenon of moral devaluation has direct consequences on the dignity of the human being. That is why this project aims at recovering people through the teachings of the Bible and bringing it into the stage of fruitfulness.

The project consists of 13 themes alongside 13 weekly meetings each theme having a direct link to the purpose of this project.

During the project, the themes will be based on the ”Fig tree”, the story from the Bible, and we will discuss about the purpose of a fig, which are the favorable and unfavorable conditions in the fulfillment of the purpose, the need for care by a gardener and the fruit harvested.

The project started on February 12, 2019. We propose that at the end of the project, the present women should directly affirm the desire to change their lives and make measurable steps in this regard.

  • Love in Christ

    My dear brothers and sisters, Grace and peace from our Heavenly Father to the whole church. We thank God that He answered our wish and prayer, and our meeting was possible. God knows we need messengers like you, that are willing to share His great and unfailing love.
  • I want the Bible to be the compass of my heart

    I will start by writing this testimony, that on this side of the correspondence there is a man who has done wrong by earthly laws, a man who is paying with 9 years of his freedom, a man who is accused of sinning greatly, a man (if he can still be called that) who is still asking in all humility for forgiveness and salvation, a man who is seeking peace with God.
  • I know the Word of God but I wish I know it better, to think about it and receive it in my soul

    Every time the danish group visit us I feel a great joy. I would like to correspond with some of you and discuss about life, destiny and of course about our faith in Jesus Christ. I am 31 years old, and when I was 16, my life took on a wrong way.
  • What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?

    Thank you for sustaining and for encouraging me through the biblical courses you had . Not so long time ago I was interned in Colibasi Penitentiary, but I've never doubted the Word of God, because I knew that God was all the time with me, and when I prayed I gave him thanks for everything.
  • My sinful soul rejoice when it got to know God

    I met you, in a place called “hell” and my sinful soul rejoiced when it got to know God and hear of His Love for humans, and of His great sacrifice -the only beloved Son. If God made this sacrifice for all people, my answer is that I want to be like you, not to be ashamed of myself, to become a child of God, to return Home to my Father, and to do what He wanted me to do.
  • He made from me a new man

    Blessed be our Good God because He takes care of the siners like me, who searches Him and finds Him.The biblic course that I made by correspondence with you made me very interested in the Word of God and it made from me, what I didn't expect to do, he made from me a “new man”.
