And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” — Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)

By God's grace, I spent 17 blessed years serving as a missionary to Romania and Moldova with For God’s Children International (2004 - 2021), including 12 years living in Romania (2004 - 2016).  During that time, God opened many doors of ministry as we worked together to share Christ with hundreds of institutionalized and at-risk kids.  Many seeds were planted, and lives changed, after hearing the Good News of Jesus!

A NEW DIRECTION

In 2021, I felt God calling me to start a new ministry outreach focused solely on providing long-term one-on-one discipleship and mentoring to Romanian and Moldovan young adults.  I especially felt a strong burden for the hundreds of young adults I know who have left, or are leaving, the state-run orphanages and are struggling to transition into adult life, as well as the severely marginalized Roma (Gypsy) population. Listening to this calling, I joined on as an affiliate of New International in June of 2021 to begin this new ministry outreach. 

A NEW MINISTRY

I am currently leading a growing team of Romanian, Moldovan, and American volunteers and ministry partners as we work together to reach Romanian and Moldovan young adults who have no one actively discipling them.  Since the young adults are scattered throughout Romania and Moldova and often move, even to other countries, a good portion of this ministry occurs online.  This allows us to follow them wherever they go, ensuring long-term and consistent discipling and mentoring.  I am in contact with up to 8 young adults almost every day, discipling them alongside a small team of volunteers.  Some of our online meetings last for 15 minutes, and others last for one to two hours, depending on what they are going through and what we are studying.  If possible, we do our best to connect the young adults to healthy churches and ministries in their area, though this often doesn’t exist.

The overall goals of this ministry are to make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20) and train Romanians and Moldovans to make disciples who make disciples (Matthew 4:19).  I cannot wait to see how God will answer prayers and expand His kingdom through these young men and women!  God is working!
