Last year, we moved to the town of Baneasa, a city in the region of Dobrogea, where, on a fifty miles radius there is not one evangelical church! Baneasa is surrounded by tens of villages that do not have know Jesus as their Savior. We joined a team of church planters in the region and together we are envisioning that the entire region will be evangelized by the year 2022! In the southern part, we saw the need of building a ministry center in the city of Baneasa which will serve as a base of operations from where we will help reach the surrounding communities with the Gospel.
We have already found favor with the local authorities and were offered facilities to start a medical clinic for helping the community with the medical needs. Through a recent medical outreach, we were able to meet and serve over 800 local people! Before Christmas, more than 1200 children, parents and teachers attended our Christmas outreaches in public schools and theaters.
As a result, we are conducting services on a weekly basis in a village public school.
The Baneasa Community Center, once is built, will help hundreds of abandoned and neglected children through feeding, literacy and after school programs, as well as adult literacy and job training, temporary shelter for trafficked victims, discipleship and ministry training. They will be assisted by the national leaders, students from the Missions School short term missions teams and missionary associates. Therefore, the ministry center will provide housing for ministry workers in the rooms assigned for this purpose.
The building phase will cost 150,000.00 dollars but more than the funds, we need the prayer of every missions minded partner! The building lot has already been purchased, the plans are already drawn, marked and approved, all is needed are the funds to build!
Thank you for your partnership in reaching the lost of Southeast Romania!
