Blessed time together, some youth were in our youth camp over the summer and we were glad to get to see them!! Luci did logistics, Rebecca was part of the worship time, and the rest of the team worked well. Over 100 youth. Guest speaker was from Bucharest a colleague of Teo’s from Seminary. Held at our church. Biserica Baptista Sfânta Treime Piatra Neamț. 🙏⛪️

A guest from PA🍁

Thankful to have Amber Halteman visiting for a few days Oct 24-27. 🙏 From Blue Mtn BIC in Roxbury. She followed us in our daily tasks in the four days she was with us. We had our village program in Gârcina, children’s program at the state orphanage, and a special breakfast for the youth at church. The themes for those were “David & Jonathan” , “10Plagues” and “Generosity “. She’s a great helper & great with kids!!!! We hope she’ll come again! 👍😊💓💓

Harvest Celebration in Garcina village! 🍁

On Sunday October 13 we had the village church’s Harvest celebration. A number of churches do this in the area, to give thanks to the Lord for the season’s harvest & to come together in fellowship.🙏😇

Ours was well attended, there were 16 kids, their parents/ family members, and a good number of brothers and sisters from the church & the city church. The message by Brother Marin was to use the season of summer & fall to the fullest, spiritually, and literally. We were pleased to have guests with us from PA, Joe, Kelly , & Gail who enjoyed the day with us.

We had sarmale, juice, and yummy homemade treats 😇😇😀😀

Children’s program this fall in Village of Garcina

So far in children’s program this fall in the village of Garcina, we’ve learned about David & Goliath, David & Jonathan, & David the writer of the Psalms. Today we had three new kids! Six total. Smaller numbers than past years but persevering for their benefit. Pray for the children to have patience, understanding, & a listening heart
