The month of November was a blessed month. God is the one who gives us strength to accomplish His will. In this sense please pray that we will understand His will more and more.
As you already know I am a member of PIEI
(Partners In Evangelism International) organization and this year the president of the organization , Cornel Stef with a group of people visited us. I was the one who administrated their time here. His purpose was to encourage the missionaries and also to see how he can find other partners for the ministry in south of Romania. It was a blessed time and we pray that this partnerships will grow and will bear fruits for the kingdom of God.
The ministry with the kids in Maruntei is a good ministry. We pray that the kids will receive the Word of God in their lives and will take it in their families.
I coordinated a group of 45 persons for the youth event in Alba Iulia hosted by the Harmony church. The purpose of the conference was to expose those who were not believers to the Gospel and to encourage the christians as well. The theme was You are loved. It was a good experience and we pray that the Word of God will find good soil.
For my relationship with my wife it was very good the conference I attended to. It was a family conference. I praise God for the wife He gave me. She is a really blessing for my life and together want to serve the Lord, our Savior.
Thank you for taking time to read our news and also for your prayers. May God bless you.

We could feel His presence in our lives and in our ministry. Phill, Dave, Ceryl and Ada from Canada visited us and helped with the ministry.

Through this team God gave us a container which we arranged it in order to run our activities here.

 We worked very hard to finish it. We put it in a brother’s yard. The people from the village were asking what is all about and it was  a good opportunity to tell them about the purpose of the container. Now we meet with the kids inside of the container and we have a small kitchen to use it. Also we have prayers meetings and a soup kitchen project. We praise God for all of those  who donated for this project and  made it possible.

 We gave some food bags and also organize 2 events:  Eye glasses project and Canada has talent event for the young people in Draganesti.

 Please be in prayer for the lost people , for those who attended to this projects that they will see God and seek God .

September 2017

Blessed is our Lod Jesus Christ!

We want to share with you God’s work in us and through  in the month of September.

An important event that took place and which I coordinated it was the youth meeting from Alba Iulia. Around  40 teenagers  from our ministry area had ( believers and non believers) the opportunity to hear the Gospel. Three persons said that they want to give their lives to Jesus. Please pray that this desire will remain in  their hearts. Dani Buzurin is from Maruntei and   attended to this conference. His family is not opened but we pray that God will change their hearts. Pray for him also that his desire  will grow after God and he would be an authentic believer.

Also I did a lot for planning their time here in Romania for our canadian partners for the october month.

Thank you for your prayers and support!God bless you!

August 2017

We praise God for how He works and His plan is wonderful!

We would like to share with you new things that happened in our ministry.

t1.jpg

As we told you we attended to a kids and youth camp. It was a blessed time spent with those that we know personally.

There were 8 teenagers from Maruntei who attended. It was a good sign for us because the parents trusted us to let their children for5 days in a christian tent camp in forest. God protected everyone this time but we could see that even they understand some things that we tried to explained to them still is so hard to take a decision for Christ. So consider to pray for these young people tobe lightened by the Holy Spirit.

This month we had the PVT program, so we were able to work with some of the parents and their children. We did visits praying and sharing the Gospel. We could see on the people’s faces the joy that someone is listening to them and loving them.

We gave also food bags to those in need. Pray that the hope of Christ to shine in the life of the people in Maruntei. And if you know someone intrested in oversea ministry, Maruntei village is a good place to come.  And not good becauseis something good in it and because it is in need of the light of Christ.

Pray also for our family that we will do only those thingsthat are according to His will.

 May God bless each of you!

July 2017

Praise be the Lord!

We thank God for how He brings people to help us in the ministry in Maruntei.

The month of July was a blessed month and a busy month. God gave us energy to accomplish all  the planned and unplanned activities. We had teams from Romania, Holland, America and Switzerland who came for short term and served alongside to us.

We had 10 young people from Cluj, Romania who organized four days of VBS. It was an intensive time  with many children.

The children were good listeners during the program and enjoyed the games. The team from Switzerland also worked with the children. They had  songs , a skit and games for the children. The team from Holland had two days of ministry in Maruntei.

As you can read our newsletter you see so many acitivities for children. We invite you to pray that each kid to understand and to receive Jesus in his life. Pray also for the parents to open their hearts and the Holy Spirit will convince them and they would accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

The team from America did a good work also. We visited several families, prayed together  and shared the Gospel. Also they were blessed with a bag of food.

In the last week of the month my wife was a leader in the kids camp organized in Slaveni. It was a tent camp. The theme of the camp was The Kingdom of God. Three children from Maruntei were able to attend to it. There were 45 children . Please also pray for these kids  that they will have desire in their hearts to follow Christ.

Thank you for prayers and supporting us!

 

May 2017

It was a good and a busy month serving Him. This monthI was focused on the ministry in Draganesti and also in Maruntei.

In Draganesti I prepared those who expressed their desire to be baptised . Weekly I met with them ( three young girls) and helped them to understand what mean to walk with the Lord. On 21st of the month they got baptised. It was a good and blessed time to see this girls declaring their faith in Christ. It was a big joy for me to baptise them.

April 2017

Christ is risen!

I am happy to serve our living  and almighty God.

It was a good and a busy month serving Him. I was involed in organizing the fellowship event  after the Easter day.  The members of Hope church and their friends were invited for fellowship. We invited a  young couple from Maruntei to spend time with us and to see how “the repenters” can have fun. It was a good and blessed time and they appreciated our invitation.

February 2017

We are very happy to work for God. It brings us much joy in our hearts. At the
same time, when we are out doingministry, we see how difficult it is to
impact a whole community without a team. This is why this month I worked to
establish a partnership with a group of young students from Cluj, a city in
northern Romania. These students are open to come and help the ministry in
Maruntei. Please pray that this will be a fruitful partnership and that God would
begin preparing the hearts of those in Maruntei.

Updates from January

The month of  January was a blessedmonth and I saw God’s faithfulness in everything!. At the begining ofit I attended to a conference in Bucharest. Even I was having a cold and my body was so weak my soul found it very refreshing.  After this I came home and tried to arrange my weekly schedule. It wasnt easy because of my niece and sister situations.  I took my niece to an appointment in Bucharest to see a doctor. He rescheduled her for the month of February.Please be in prayer for her.

News from December

This month is known as the month of the
presents and indeed it was for our ministry.
The month of December was a very busy month.
At the beginning of the month we worked
together with 3 sisters from First Baptist
Jonesboro. We visited a few families . These
families were the poorest in Maruntei and it was
a big joy to bless them in the Name of Jesus with
food bags but also telling them about God’s
love.
