Hunedoara Church Plans

New Church in Hunedoara, Romania

This is where it all begins.  Here is the sketch of the new church building that will be constructed this year in Hunedoara, Romania.  This sketch is currently being converted to professional drawings that will be used to obtain permits.  It will be a one story, roughly 50′ x 100′ building.  The construction will leverage…

Tornado in Deva, Romania

Talk about a bad Monday.  On Monday, August 26th, 2013, a tornado tore through the city of Deva in Romania.  In the process, it severely damaged the roofs on the orphanage we support with its surrounding buildings.  We praise God that none of our leaders or any of the children were hurt physically by the…

Small Deeds

“A Small Deed is better than a Grand Plan”   I heard this quote recently and it made me think about how we should be living our lives.  I don’t want this blog to be full of preaching or my opinions, so I will stay focused on how this quote applies to the work we…

He is a fearless evangelist.  I remember stories of his van almost being…

Readers

For years I’ve been delayed in creating a website or blog for one simple reason.  The reason is that I know the audience will be very diverse.  Its really quite difficult to share information when the audience is so broad.   Most of the posts will be directed towards the audience of people who support the work. …

Ioana Testimony

Ioana is 7 years old and lives at the Deva orphanage.  Pastor Viorel asked a few of the orphans to testify at the dedication of the orphanage in Hunedoara.           This little girl is the youngest of three gypsy sisters who came from the state orphanage shortly after they were taken into custody.  The girls…

Hunedoara Orphanage Worship

The worship in Romania is excellent.  The room that we use for church service in Hunedoara was not big enough to hold all the people who came to the orphanage dedication.  The weather was great, so the service was held outside.  The video will give you a good look at the outside of the orphanage…
