My wife was with Raluca, Samuel's wife at the children's program and we were amazed that so many children attended and enjoyed together!


We went to an equipment program that brought us much joy and enrichment as being of a pleasing character to God, His Glory for them!
Also, we had the honor to have brother Cornel and Gabriela Stef family together with Teri at the church program! We are so thankful for the encouragement that came from the Lord through them.

God is faithful in his promises!

Our brothers and sisters, we want to thank you to all of you who support us and our ministry in prayer. Glory to Him for all his blessings and victories.

We salute you with Psalm 37:5 "Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you". We are very grateful for the way God works in the lives of Florina and George in order to make them in His image.

They continue to come to church with their children and are encouraged by the Lord in all the aspects of their lives. One special reason to pray for Florin is for the power to stop smoking because he wants to stop but he can't do it.

Also, we went to visit the husband of Maria, one of our sisters in Christ, to tell him about Jesus and about His love, to encourage him and we wanted him to see that he is not alone. He had a malign tumor and he went through a surgery recently. The doctors told him that he has only three weeks to live but after the surgery he was quite ok and started chemiotherapy. Please continue to pray for him because only God can bring peace and healing.

At the end of this message, we want to thank you as family for your prayers. We had some issues lately but we could see God's comfort and faithfullness. My wife was very sick, she went through a surgery and now she is ok, praises to God. We are grateful for your prayers and please continue to join us in prayer for my family and for the ministry.

God bless you!

One Soul for Christ

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. - 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

WhatsApp Image 2019-02-01 at 20.26.57.jpeg

A victory of the Lord Jesus and our joy is that a man, husband of one of our sister in Christ who was baptized two years ago, returned to the Lord.


Florina & George Vlada have two children. Through God's grace, Florina returned to God two years ago, since then, she prayed to the Lord for the salvation of her husband and peace in her family!


Big tests in her family, many and many fights with her husband, but we continued to visit them whenever they needed, to encourage them, to pray with them, and so God worked in the heart of the husband and with great pain in the soul, he realized that he is a sinner, he understood that without the Lord Jesus a man can’t have salvation!

The husband didn’t want to have to see any repentants before, or to hear about God, saying that he doesn’t need to know about Him! We spent more time with them both, we told them the gospel in many times, they saw Jesus by our example as a family, and now they are willing to study with us the Word of God. They understood the importance of reading the word and the importance of pray in their relationship with God.

Glory to the Lord for this victory and thank you for your prayers!

Prayer requests:

  • Pray for this family that the tests that will come upon them as Christians will also be encouraging that they now have a hope in our Lord Jesus Christ!

  • Pray for their family, for their children, and their lives to be changed and shaped according to the will of God!

Christmas is a Season for Giving!

We praise the Lord for He has given us the opportunity to give more than 150 gifts to the Kindergarten classes at the local school. Additionally we were able to give to the children of the families that we have been working with. This opportunity has allowed us to form and strengthen our relationships with the parents as well, which allows for better conversations and opportunities to share Christ. Not only that but we delighted in God’s provision through those who prayed, those who gave, and in those who were able to receive the gifts. We ask that you join us in celebrating, praying for the children we were able to reach, and rejoicing in the Lord, for the ultimate gift of Christmas has already been given to us, when Christ came down at Christmas!

With great affection and love for you, and for the Glory of the Lord, we wish you a Merry Christmas!

Our God - The Only Healer

IMG-20181222-WA0025.jpg

May the peace of God fill up your hearts in these days while we celebrate the birth of Jesus!

We pray that God will cover you with His blessings and give you joy in His presence!

Recently, I met a man named Viorel. He is 52 years old. He is part of an orthodox family and he has a very difficult situation. He has one hand amputated and because he had to work to provide for his family, the hand infected and it’s in a very bad shape. He was hospitalized a short time for investigations and now we wait for the results to see if he has cancer or not.

Please pray for his soul because I told him about the salvation that Jesus can offer and now he knows that only God can heal him physically and spiritually!

Pray for his healing and for his family because he is the only one able to work. Also, pray for his child because he also has a handicap.

We thank you for your prayers and we will keep you up to date with his situation.

God bless you and Merry Christmas!

“I rejoiced to have a special discussion time with a few women from the village this week, to encourage them and to show them that they are loved, that they have worth and that the Lord Jesus Christ loves them! 
They are very open, but at the same time, it is hard for them to understand that the Lord loves them and that He is good to them.

Pray for their hearts and souls and that God would open their hearts to Him! Amen!” Mihaela Serbanescu.

Pray for the village of Daneasa, Romania where Mihaela and her husband Daniel Serbanescu serve as PIE missionaries and church planters.

Prayer requests - Daneasa

Peace my dear brothers in Christ!

 

I want to share with you few prayer request and in the same time things that we are thankful for: we would like to thank  those who involved through prayer or actions regarding the multi functional building in Daneasa, where we have started our construction and through God's Grace, we managed to build the groundwork of the building.

 

This month we had a special event for the children at the stadium in Daneasa, where they could rejoice through plays, games, songs, bible verses and fellowship. Please pray for them so God will search their hearts and they will continue to come to the children's program.

 

Lastly, i would like to share with you what God is working through us in Daneasa: we had the opportunity to go on the streets and share the Gospel, also we have visited few families of non believers and we praise God that they received us and we were able to share the good news of Salvation. Please pray for them, that the Word of God will search their heart and they will be saved.

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

We rejoice in sharing with you about how God worked this month. With the help of God, this month we managed to finish the paperwork for the multi-functional building! I strengthened a friendship with Costel, whom I have wrote about in previous newsletters.

Thanks be to God that He worked so beautifully, in which Costel acquired confidence and felt encouraged by our time of fellowship.

Costel desires to know more about God and for us to continue praying for him.

 

Likewise, we had a blessed time of consolidation for the believers through Brother Ilie Contiu and Niky Botan, in which we prayed, praised God and worshipped together.

We praise God for the fellowship, which we had this month with the members and others from Daneasa. We were encouraged through this verse and praises be upon God!


Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

Family Visits

Psalms 48:1 "Great is The Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness."

Thank you dear brothers for your prayers that you brought before The Lord on behalf of us. We feel blessed and desire to share with you how God came to help the people of Daneasa this month.
A family in Daneasa is going through a challenging period in their lives. Vali is a mother of 4 children, and a few months ago, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was operated on. Presently, she is recuperating and with the help of God, we offered  help and care through encouragement, visits and transportation to the hospital for blood tests. 

Screen Shot 2018-03-10 at 18.42.15.png

Following these things, they felt encouraged and thanked God. Together with my wife, we visited another family where we share the Gospel and care for them in their needs. Adriana and her daughter, Cristina, are special people desiring to know God more. Cristina is experiencing a challenging time. We pray for her and her family to be saved. This month 2 families were helped with wood and coal for fires, being very thankful to God.

Besides service, God blessed us through equipping conferences.

God bless you and we ask you to continue to intercede for these families that the name of God would be praised.Where will my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth."
