"So should your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
"By God's grace, in 1999 Raul Costea came to Lisa to design the Jesus film. Being in the organizing committee of the Orthodox church, I went to see what it is. I knew Pocaitii are 'false prophets' and I asked my brother Raul to prove that they are not part of those prophets. Raul answered me and offered me a Bible to read and find answers to other questions of mine. Later I visited Hope Church and I was invited to take part in meetings in Perieti. I began to study God's Word and I discovered another world. It was actually the real world of God after which I longed. In 2000 I was invited to a youth conference, held at Alba Lulia. I saw my life also like the leper. I give thanks to God who healed me from that. Immediately after my conversion, I began to distribute Christian literature and tell people about the love of God and their need to be saved. I worked in Bucharest a few years but I felt that my place is not there. I wanted to be in the middle of the Olt people and serve them. I decided to quit that job and get more involved in missionary service in Olt county. I served four years in the orphanage of Grace Church in Slatina, then God spoke to me through Matthew 5:16.
In the summer of 2011, we decided to return with the family in Lisa and serve in pastoral circle Perieti. Together with the family, we are involved in discipleship and evangelism projects. Cristina works with children and teaching the Bible. Ion gives sermons at the church in Perieti. We also have a study group and prayer in Lisa.
