Sadly, we have learned that brother Frank Gribble has passed away a few weeks ago. He was our speaker at youth camp last year, and had enjoyed many years of mission in Romania together with our church in Piatra Neamt. We enjoyed his wit, his stories, and his devotion to the youth, and he will surely be missed!
Please keep his family, his wife and two sons, and his church family in your prayers ! Thank you! 🙏
It’s that time of year again, time to start planning for camp! We are looking for 65 sponsorships for youth who want come to our youth camp August 27- September 1, 2018 in the mountains of Northern Romania.
This will be the fourth year that we have taken youth from our county, together with our church Sfânta Treime Baptist Church in Piatra Neamț to Youth Camp. This year’s theme has yet to be decided, but sure to be fun with great leaders and mentors!
You may send donations of $120 to:
My Brother’s Keeper, PO Box 11, Roxbury PA 17251. Please make sure you write “Avadanei camp 2018” on the memo. Thank you for helping us! The kids thank you!
Did you know that a Christian camp is a great way to jumpstart a youth in coming to church? We’ve seen that a lot!!

We want to thank each of you for praying for us and the things we do here in Romania. We are each weak, but it means a lot to have you praying for the work that goes on through our church, Sfânta Treime Baptist Piatra Neamț to affect the lives of many children and youth in our county. We feel as though many of you are right there with us!
As we have served in this area, we’ve kept in mind the verses from Dan. 1:8-16 where Daniel and his friends want to feed on different food. We hope that some of the children and youth from villages, orphanages, and our city will decide this as well for their lives, not to be defiled with the culture around them but to seek something more holy. We hope the same for you, thank you and blessings for the New Year!

Thank you to all who were involved in the Christmas celebration and in preparing and distributing the gifts to the children in the village ministry of Gârcina!! 😊⭐️🎄
Special thanks to GUMC PA , MBK , and GCC of Willow Street. !!
We have been on furlough in the States, but in our absence, friends from our church organized a program in the church of Gârcina with songs, poems, and a skit. Afterwards, shoebox gifts were distributed to the 60 kids in attendance, and they also gave an additional 20 boxes to children in a neighboring village of Negrești. Many of the kids from Gârcina in attendance have been to our Saturday program at least once, some coming more frequently.
Thank you for your involvement in packing shoe boxes gifts!!!
Along with fall comes the back -to-school schedule, which affects both of us, Luci in his 2nd year of nursing school here in town, and I helping with English homework among the kids we know. 🙂 Emily has grown, she is now almost 1 year and 5 months, and had a fabulous summer with all the activities we had for the kids, also a great time with Lily, our babysitter. 🙂 Here is an example of our week this fall:
Monday- 3-4pm Becca tutoring at Elena Doamna Orphanage, 8am-3pm Lucian at clinicals
Tuesday- 3-6pm Becca tutoring at Casa Ray Orphanage, 8am-3pm Lucian at clinicals Wednesday- 3-5pm Becca tutoring home, 8am-3pm Lucian at clinicals, 6-8pm prayer meeting.
Thursday- 3-6pm Becca tutoring at Casa Ray Orphanage, 8am-3pm Lucian at clinicals.
Friday- 3-5pm Becca tutoring, 8am-3pm Lucian at clinical.
Saturday- 3-5pm Village kids program in Garcina, 6-8pm Lucian at youth group (leading along with 2 other guys).
Sunday- 10-12 church, 6-8pm church.
Also every morning, Lucian meets with youth from villages of Negresti & Garcina at 7-8am for breakfast & prayer before school. Ones who come to youth group &/or have been with us to camp. They have read through the book of John & Proverbs, and have started Matthew. Pray for the kids we know to come to an understanding of the saving knowledge of God & his Son. Also for us as a family to remain steadfast and to continue growing in patience and sharing. Thank you.
With Lily, our summer babysitter.
