Did you know that every single donation and prayer makes a difference for our missionaries and those they are helping? Our goal is to ignite hope one relationship at a time.
The following story is shared by our Friends in Romania and shows how one relationship was changed from your support.
| “Maria was a former student from Gura Riului, gifted, perseverant and hard-working. Born in a humble family, she strived to do her schoolwork fast, so she could help her parents with the farm animals and in the fields. She excelled in school and graduated from Sibiu University (IT Engineering) with honors.
Along with her best friend Mioara, Maria was tutored in English during high school. There they had the opportunity to hear a testimony and their tutor pointed them to the love and calling of Jesus. They always listened intently, and whenever time permitted, they wanted to watch “a special movie.” (Ex: Fireproof, Courageous, War Room, etc.)
It was presumed Maria and Mioara’s parents never allowed them to attend camps or youth meetings, but they continued to keep in touch with their tutors, even after graduation. Before getting married last year, Maria visited them with her future husband.
Recently, Maria came to a bible study. Since most of the other participants are current or former students, it is the hope that Maria will soon participate regularly. Please continue to pray that seed of righteousness sown in the hearts of students bears fruit. “
