I have a passion for the youth and the younger generations because I believe they are
at a prime age to change their lives for the better, as well as the future of our Church
here. Discipling the current youth is something the Lord has blessed us with the ability
to do. My wife Nicoleta and I, as well as my brother-in-law Alecs, and his wife Ancuta,
are the leaders of the youth ministry here and we have assumed full responsibility of the
ministry, as the Ebeels who started this ministry felt God's call back to their home
country. For our youth ministry we host Bible studies, prayer nights, and game nights
for the youth that regularly attend Hope Church, as well as reach out to youth who do
not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and try to encourage them to join the
community that we have built.
Furthermore, we also planted a Church in the nearby village-Maruntei, and we have
seen God work in people's lives there as they have come to accept Jesus as their
Savior. One of the members of our Church accepted Jesus as her savior and got
baptized, and we praise God for this as he works in the hearts of all people. Also, we
have different weekly activities like Sunday worship, kids ministry, and prayer times.
Lastly, we have some exciting news- we are currently in the midst of renovating a new
building and we need prayer support as we prepare to move to a bigger space in order
to better serve the community here. We are praying that a bigger space will allow us to
reach more people and better disciple those who are members of our Church.
Additionally, we continue to reach out to the people here in many different ways so that
we can expose them to Jesus and the love He holds for all of us. We are trying to make
a big difference by doing many different things like passing out calendars we made with
scripture on them to the community, empowering teams of students who come with
various organizations to show them the ministry here, as well as getting them involved
in serving God, and renovating the new building that we hope to move our Church plant
Lastly, pray that God would instill in these communities and the world- a deep desire to
know and follow Him and, pray that God would work in the hearts and souls of the
people here so that they could come to know Him and be saved by His redeeming
grace. Pray that we would continue to lead people well, and pray for wisdom and growth
as we build our ministry and seek God every step of the way.
Thank you so much for your support of our ministries! All are welcome at our Church so
spread the word, and come for Sunday service and see how you can get involved!
