In Holy Subversion, I briefly recount the conversion story of my father-in-law, Florin Trifan. Bro. Trifan was a Communist party member in Ceausescu’s Romania back in the 1970’s. Sent to spy on a Baptist revival meeting, he heard the gospel and trusted Christ. He then abandoned Communist ideology and eventually became a pastor.

In 2007, we were fortunate to have Corina’s parents visit us here in the U.S. The videos below (part 1 & part 2) are of Bro. Trifan giving his testimony at our church (I’m the translator). I encourage you to listen to his story.

Bro. Trifan is currently battling throat cancer. He has been through an operation, three rounds of chemotherapy, and he will start radiations in the next few weeks. Please pray for him and for our family during this difficult trial.

    I’m battling cancer also. I will pray for you and your family. God bless.

    What a beautiful testimony your father-in-law has! We will definitely keep him (and your family) in prayer. Cancer seems to affect every family, and our’s is no we understand.

    Thank you sharing your heart and thoughts with the rest of us–we’re always blessed!
    In Him, Linda
