The funeral service of Pastor Vasile Gherman who was executed by the Securitate 25 years ago

This is a video recording of the funeral service of Pastor Vasile Gherman who was executed by the Securitate 25 years ago because he did not back off when asked to stop evangelizing in the South-East of Romania. They made it look like an accident, but the bullet wound to his head was clearly seen by people at the funeral. Only 14 months later the anti-communist uprising of December 1989 put an end to the totalitarian regime with its feared Securitate. But even after the 1989 change of power, Mrs. Gherman, his wife, received anonymous threats discouraging her to ask the authorities for a post-mortem examination and an inquiry into the cause of death. So the family put it to rest, trusting in God’s justice rather in that of humans.

    Multumim pt aceasta postare! Am privit cu lacrimi in ochi filmarea si ne-am adus aminte cu durere de acea zi in care am primit vestea plecarii premature dintre noi a celui ce a fost fratele pastor GHERMAN VASILE!Dansul a fost pastorul Bisericii Baptiste din Drobeta-Turnu-Severin si v-a ramane vesnic in amintirea noastra!Eu sora Geta Zvinca aveam atunci 20 de ani si impreuna cu sotul,parintii,bunicii,surorile,matusile si fratii care s-au stans la aflarea vestii la noi acasa am plans si ne-am rugat sa nu fie adevarat si daca era am rugat ca Dumnezeu sa aiba in grija Lui pe sotia fratelui ,sora Lidia care ramasese cu 3 copii minori de crescut.In casa bunicilor mei era atunci adunare si pt ca locuim la strada principala E70 ,nu era zi in care fratele pastor trecand spre Orsova sa nu se abata la noi sa ne rugam,sa cantam sa ne incurajeze .Chiar si la miezul noptii era de multe ori prezent cu noi la rugaciune!Nu pot sa uit ca tot timpul era cu zambetul pe buze si cand mergeam sa vizitam batranii ,bolnavii,fratii care erau mai izolati eu duceam diplomatul fratelui.Am avut ce invata de la acest om minunat care desi avea in primire 13 biserici nu ne uita pe niciunul.Alerga de dimineata pana noaptea tarziu sa tina unite bisericile si pe frati.Noi asa l-am cunoscut si ar fi multe de spus dar ma opresc aici si Dumnezeu sa va binecuvinteze pt ceea ce faceti .
