Glorified be the Lord for His great power that accompanied us this month in our missionary work. The Lord is the Only One who deserves the honor and the glory for everything we did here. We believe that it is essential to constantly study the Word of God in a small study group. Every Friday evening, we gather to let God teach us how to apply the Gospel’s truth that is preached each Sunday morning. At the beginning of this month, I attended a conference organized by the Baptist Community in Oltenia, together with my wife. Brother Viorel Iuga was invited to preach from God’s Word. We enjoyed the quality time we spend, the spiritual food we received as well as the fellowship with missionaries from different villages in Oltenia. We spent a great time with Brother Cornel Stef who visited us accompanied by two other brothers from America. I received many advices, both personal and professional for which I am very grateful to the Lord. We thank God for the people who support us and invest in us. With God's help I also served in the Juvenile Prison from Craiova. We used different methods to share the Gospel to the children and teenagers there. Please pray that the Lord raise up people to join us in His work. As you know, we would like to start that after school program as soon as possible but we still don’t have someone directly responsible for this project. Oltenia needs people who make themselves available to God! We thank God for your support in the mission in Comani, for your prayers and involvement in the fulfillment of our projects. People are blessed in different ways, which shows the goodness of God. This way people in our community were very thankful when they received clothes from of HOPE FOR COMUNITY Association. We are very thankful to the German that is part of ADOPT A FAMILY project. This project gives people the opportunity to help a needy family by supporting them financially (with food, scholastic materials etc.). Veselas is a family in our community which has been part of this project for approximately 4 years. We thank God for the faithfulness of this German family! A family in a neighbor village was very blessed to receive wood for fire. We are thankful to the brother who has sponsored this action. I was pleasantly surprised to see that after I called for church’s help to support this poor family, all those who attended the Sunday service went home and each of themhave prepared all sorts of food. I must mention that many of the people who helped are not even members of the church. Please continue to pray for us and thank you for standing beside us in everything we did this year!

October 2017

Blessed be the Lord for the power that He gives us every day in His work. It is His Grace who strengthens us when daily trials come upon us and when we are facing difficulties. This month we were blessed by feeling the presence of God when you are in His will.

      At the beginning of the month, God gave us the opportunity of hosting a team of brothers and sisters from England, led by brother Nigel Worth. Not only did I host them but we worked together to spread the Gospel among people here in Comani. We made home visits to the people who use to come to the church, but we had the chance to visit other families too, who do not normally come to the church.

 I was glad to see how God changed people's hearts in a way that impressed them to tears and many of them prayed. Please pray that God will break the chains which keep the people as slaves of the sin.

     We also organized a special event where people received reading glasses for free. We also used the time we had so that every person who entered the building had the opportunity to hear about the forgiveness of sins in the Name of Jesus Christ. We also had a meeting with the women and they were encouraged to surrender all to Jesus. We were impressed by the way God works. My wife invited around 12 women, but she prayed that God would make it possible for the women He wants to be there and listened to the Gospel to come. We were pleasantly surprised to see that more than 30 women took part in this beautiful event specially organized for them.

The children were not left aside. We also organized a special programs for them. According to their age they could hear about Jesus by listening to Bible stories, they played and they had various practical activities. Pray for them that the Lord change their hearts. Bring in front of God the need for an after-school program, a program we want to start but still can’t because we haven’t found a person who wants to be involved as a teacher in this project.

This month we celebrated the Thanksgiving Day and we were glad to praise God for the goodness He had shown to us this year.

Please pray for the Divine protection over my whole family, for the people to desire the presence of God in their lives and daily consecration for church members.

I realized that for a better and more efficient organization when we have big teams, we need a minibus. So pleas pray for this need together with us and we know that at the time decided by Him, it will be fulfilled.

 We thank you for your support and for your prayers! Thank you for being part of what is being done here in Comani! May God help us not to get tired of working for His Grace, each one of us in the way we are involved.

May God bless you!

September 2017

We praise God because this month He gave some wonderful experiences in His work here in Comani. We are confident that the church grows visibly by studying the Bible in small groups. Therefore, this month we began a small group where we meet all the people who want to know God better by studying the Bible. Let God work more and more in our hearts as a church and give us the desire to get closer to Him!

This month, a group of young people from Cluj responded to God’s call and came to Oltenia in Comani to serve God. There was a special program organized for the children. We also did home visits and the people were very happy to talk to us about God. On Sunday morning we worshiped Lord through prayers, singing and testimonies and brother Vlad preached the Gospel. Also, through this group God made it possible for the people to receive food and clothing. Glorified to be the Lord!

God calls us to proclaim the Gospel to people, and this month we served together with a group of brothers and sisters in Icoana. We walked the street and shared invitations to a church event where people talked about Jesus and received reading glasses in the name of the Lord.

We thank God for making it possible for a group of children to receive strollers and stationery at the beginning of the school year. 
This month we had a WR team with us. With God's help, we hold English lessons for the children in the village for an hour and a half every day.

We thank to those of you who are involved with us in the ministry work in Comani. Even if you are not physically here with us, you are still involved by carrying us in your prayers, and that is what makes you a part of what God works here in our village.

Please continue to pray for our family that the Lord will keep us safe and the church will grow both spiritually and numerically. Pray that God will send more missionaries, for us to be able to begin the thermic insulation of the church’s building and that God will send a teacher for the after school program we want to begin.

Blessed be the Lord! May God be with you in everything you do!

August 2017

Bless be the Lord for the grace that He showed us to be allowed to work for the enlargement of the Kingdom of Heaven.

In August we had the joy of having among us our brother Nelutu Bec. He shared with us the Gospel and he advised us to show our love to the people around us through our deeds.

 This month we had PVT. We hosted three families and there was a program established by the Draganesti church. One day we had the opportunity to do home visits, and we tried to present the Salvation trough Christ regardless of the problems people faced. We also had a lunch together during which we shared wonderful things that God has done for us, the way He called us to serve Him in Oltenia, but also projects we are involved in. Another day we served in Craiova where there was a street evangelization organized. Every American family was accompanied by a novel who helped with the translation. We shared New Testaments with every family on a certain area and we also talked to them about Christ. Brother Michael Daily has been with us for two days and we have enjoyed spending time together.
Please pray for the people attending the Coman church and especially for Vali, the woman whose husband was in jail. God help her not to make hasty decisions about her marriage, a marriage that doesn’t seem to work well at that moment. Pray for her husband, Bebe, to be saved by God. We are convinced that things will change altogether if he comes to knows the Lord. Pray for us as a family that the Lord help us live our life depending on Him every day. We would like to be a light among the people in Comani and have wisdom in relationships with people. Also may God protect our family.

We thank those of you who are involved in the work in Comani and those who carry us in your

daily prayers.   
 

Be blessed by the Lord!

July 2017

Blessed be the Lord!

Our greatest desire is to see people committing to God. This month we proclaimed Christ's love in different ways among the people in Comani.

At the beginning I had the grace to work with a team from Texas lead by brother Keith Wiliamson and brother Tim Owens and over a period of 9 days we had different activities. We made home visits trying to encourage through the word of God those who are on God’s way, but also shared the Gospel to the people who didn’t know God. We had a special evening for women in which we shared our experiences with God in our personal life and preached from His word.

For five days we had a vacation Bible school with the children from the village and once again we had the opportunity to learn wonderful things about The One who created the whole universe. They were fascinated by the way lessons were presented but also by the other activities they had during the program. We shared the Gospel with people on the street and among young people by meeting them on the football field in our village. We played soccer together, but we also had the opportunity to tell them about our Savior, Jesus Christ. At the end, everyone received a soccer ball with the Gospel written on it.

It was a blessed time in which the people from Comani could hear again about the forgiveness they can receive through Christ. We thank God for brother Vlad and sister Alexandra and for their help. They served the Lord by helping with the translation.

We also made home visits with the help of a group of Swiss brothers who confessed to the glory of God how He changed their lives.

There was a team from Netherlands we enjoyed working with. They worshiped the Lord with us at the church service, and one day some of them visited people at their homes.

We glorify our Lord for the children camp in which my wife also served for 5 days. It was a tent camp involving about 45 children.

Thank you for all your support! May God bless you, and don’t forget that you are part of all that the Lord is working here in the Comani.

Please continue to pray for us that the Lord give us wisdom in working with people, for the physical and spiritual protection of our family, for the believers to live in holiness, completion of the church construction and people who commit to joining the team here.

June 2017

In Draganesti City Central Park took place an event dedicated to children. We also attended this event with some children from Comani. Around 30 children from Comani enjoyed this event together with around 100 children from other missionary points. The event was organized in collaboration with PVT (Parents Vision Trip). We were glad to host some people from this organization for 3 days. Together with people from PVT, we served God in Craiova for one day. We walked on city’s streets, telling people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the afternoon, we split into teams that spread on multiple streets to put the New Testament into people’s mailboxes.

May 2017

Blessed be the Lord!It is only by His grace that we were found worthy to be His fellows in the mission field inComani. We all share God’s will, that none shall perish but have eternal life, through the salvation in Jesus Christ. We are grateful to God for sending us help in preaching the gospel. This month a team that works in partnership with Hard Cry came to help.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
I’ve stared the month of December by
going to a youth conference in Alba Iulia.

Comani. The theme of the conference was
Anchored in Jesus Christ. It was a blessed
time and one girl decided that she wants
to start a life after His will.
In partnership with our brother Lanny we
organized an evangelistic event. where
around 145 people came.

News from October

We thank God for HIs faithfulness that He shows
us everyday. The month of October was a

learn from it. We continue our children ministry.
