We started our working in Eastern Europe in 1999 through our partnership with CERI (Children's Emergency Relief International) to bring the Gospel, winter boots, & the joy of the Lord to thousands of orphans in the beautiful nations of Moldova, Transnistria* & Ukraine. In 2013, the Lord led us to begin a partnership with Grace Baptist Church in Benderi, Transnistria. Each summer, a team from our church travels to Grace to lead a Bible camp for kids. The Gospel seed has been sown in the hearts of hundreds of children & their families during the weeks of these camps, & trusting relationships continue to widen & deepen each year. We also provide modest monthly support for Rev. Dorel Iseneau, who pastors in Moldova, & Rev. Peter Korotash, who pastors in Transnistria.
If you would like to know more about making an eternal difference in Transnistria, you're invited to join us for an informative lunch meeting (please bring your own lunch) immediately following Worship, Sunday, July 23, 2017. Our flexible plans for Mission Transnistria 2018 include leading the 4-day Bible camp at Grace & a 1-day Bible camp in a neighboring village. Our flexible trip dates are July 27 - August 5, 2018. Estimated cost is $2000/person. Please remember everyone can pray, most can give, many can go. Please be faithful in the way(s) the Lord leads you. If the Lord is leading you to join our team in 2018, download an application & return it to our office.
*Transnistria is officially recognized as a political state by a small number of other countries. This beautiful area just east of the Nistria River is home to proud, Russian-speaking people. In Russian, the country is called Pridnestrovie. It gives us great joy to serve the people of Transnistria/Pridnestrovie.
