Back to Bucharest!
In answer to many prayers over the last year we are delighted to announce that we all have tickets and passports in hand to return to Romania August 25th! We are in the midst of packing, last-minute experiences for the kids, and preparing to say good goodbyes. While the wait has felt long at times, looking back we are amazed by the many opportunities the Lord gave us in the last year for growth, training, partnership development, and family.
God worked in a wonderful way over the summer as we met with individuals and churches to share the ministry God has given us. We spent the last two months in Michigan and were overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of our church family there. We had the privilege of sharing with the kids at the South Church VBS in June where we spent 5 days sharing about Romania, why we should all care about missions, how someone becomes a missionary, and how we are encouraging Romanians to become missionaries. It is our prayer that some of the 300 children we spoke to will one day become missionaries themselves.
Next month Bucharest celebrates its 555th anniversary! We love our city and desire to see God’s Kingdom bringing transformation to the 3 million residents. Here’s how you can be involved! Together with our city team we’re asking God to raise up 555 people to pray for Bucharest each day of September. We know that the foundation of revival is prayer, and are convinced our prayers will bring hope and new life to this needy city.
Our team’s goal of 555 intercessors is ambitious and will require a lot of help. We are eager for you to pray with us and ask you to invite others to pray.
If you will be one of the 555, please send a quick reply to let us know and you’ll receive our calendar with prayer points for each day of the month.
