Our purpose is to support local church planting projects in their ministry to very poor people in several towns and villages of Romania where most of the population have never heard how to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.As a small team we will travel in two different areas of Romania and be part of the evangelistic Christmas celebrations in local church planting projects.
Available for: Singles Couples Families Groups
In each town the church leaders will introduce us to the specific spiritual needs of that place and the vision of the local congregation how to reach out to the lost. We will have fellowship with local believers and participate at evangelistic events of the churches, on the occasion of the Christmas celebrations. This will be also a great opportunity to discover how to become more involved in these ministries in the future and to build long term relationships with devoted Christian communities in Romania.
All participants should be physically fit, able to cope with cold weather, irregular meal schedules and long travels. Participants will need to be team players with a teachable heart and a willingness to submit and grow. Being flexible, forgiving, encouraging, and having a good sense of humor is essential.
We will stay in local church buildings or families. Please bring your sleeping bag with you. In some of the places toilet facilities may be very basic and shower facilities may be primitive and/or limited. There may not be laundry facilities.
We will provide the meals in partnership with the local church or the OM team and may have a rotating "kitchen help" schedule for you to be involved in.
