our ten days in Romania, we covered over 2200 miles, gave 12
concerts and ministered to countless thousands. The southern
portion of Romania boasts a Christian population of less than
0.08% - making it the equivalent of many of the middle eastern
countries in the 10/40 window.
Although technically considered a “Christian” nation, the
people are under the control and oppression of the Orthodox
Church. A sadistic mixture of religion, animism and witchcraftthe
Romanian people live in fear of the priests who seem to control
all aspects of daily life. For a few coins, a priest will place
a death curse on someone, or cause a mysterious illness to
It was into this darkness that God enabled us to bring His life.
Many of the places we ministered had never hosted a Christian
concert before and in one such village the local missionary
had been working for two years and had only baptized four people.
The evening we ministered there, God increased that tiny church
by over 400%!
were also the first American’s ever allowed inside
Romania’s maximum security prison. We were given two hours
and told “Do whatever you want”. Walking into a room of nearly
100 unrestrained convicts was a bit nerve wracking, but we shared
our testimony of the accident and with each word we spoke and each
song we sang the men’s hardened exterior seemed to melt. By the
end of our time there many of the men were weeping and when we
gave an invitation over 95% of the men prayed to receive Christ.
It was as if a giant floodlight had been switched on, because
what, mere moments before, had been a room filled with all kinds
of perversion and evil was now filled with the light of Christ.
Of course, no trip to Romania would be complete without ministering
to the orphans and Gypsies. Our first Sunday in Romania we
went out to a tiny village, up in the mountains, where there was a
Gypsy settlement. The local missionary had already picked up a bus
load of orphans that morning and together we trekked the several
miles up to the plateau where the people were gathered. Throughout
the “Service” many of the people were crying and when we
concluded nearly 100% of those present gave their lives to
in all, we are thrilled to report that over 500 people gave
their lives to Christ during our time in Romania - Something
that would not have been possible without your support. We are
still in the process of cataloging everything that happened and
will be placing more stories and updates online as we are
able, so check back often!
As you know, we will be ministering in Greece and Israel in
February and are already planning our next trip to Romania -
hopefully in May. Each of these mission outreaches costs
anywhere from $10,000-$15,000 so please be praying as to how
God would use you to help spread our message of hope and healing
to the uttermost parts of the earth!
