Greetings from Moldova! December 2008, Chisinau, Moldova

First, I would like to wish you: “MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLESSED NEW YEAR!”.
We are glad to know that: “EMANUEL” – God is with us ! Thank you for continuing to walk with God by faith in this very important time in our history. We are called by God to be holy because HE is Holy. We are to be separated from this world even though we live in this world. We are not of this world but we are born of GOD for GOD. We are to live for Him as He gave His life for us. We have a high, heavenly and holy calling to walk by faith with God, and stand before God being occupied with His business to win souls and make disciples. Praise God! Thank you Lord for such an amazing life with you!


Mal 3:16 “Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.”
I am very thankful to God for the opportunity He gives us to hear His word every day and to be in fellowship with His children! We meet almost every day to have fellowship in the Word of God to pray, to sing, to evangelize and to visit people. I can see people growing because God is working in their lives. It is great to be with God! I can see people’s desire for God and His word and how they make decisions by faith to trust God for their needs.

Grace House
I have chosen to call it by this name. I like to think that God wants to give grace because we need grace. This house is a place where teenage girls from poor families have an opportunity to stay and have a place to sleep, eat and have the opportunity to study in a school. There are ten girls in the house from different places of Moldova. They are young and many of them have no idea what to expect from the future. We are going there every week (Tuesday) to sing together, share the Word and have fellowship. Some of them are coming to the church services. I would like to ask you to pray for them as they are here with us that they will make decisions with God. Also pray for the two ladies who are caring for them.

Also twice a week Nina Moleva our precious sister from Baku was doing English classes with them using passages from Bible.

2Co 5:18 “And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation.”

We are always amazed by how God is bringing people before us. They are very open and many times we see people coming to Christ. People are worried about the things happening in the world and are thinking about what the future will bring. We bring hope, joy and security by telling them to believe in Jesus Christ. He holds the future. He has everything in His hands.

We continue to do evangelism every week by faith and are waiting on God. Please pray as we have started to do evangelism in the universities. Yesterday we had a very good time sharing with a few of the students, and they have many questions! God is so faithful to give them the right answers!

Mission trips
Isa 6:8 “And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said here am I; send me!”

Odessa, Ukraine

We are very glad to be in the right place at the right time. God gave us the privilege to spend few days with the Body of Christ in Odessa. It was a precious time with many great divine appointments in evangelism and great words from God. I was very blessed to see the hunger after the word and the way they live with God. Please pray as we are planning to visit again in Odessa and be there with God’s people.

Corpaci, Northern Moldova

Igor and Natasha are very precious friends for us here in Moldova. They love the Finished Work message and are always glad and grateful when we come to visit them in their village.
This time we were not just spending time together but we went out to speak with people about Jesus. It was a time of joy and encouragement. Igor was very glad to see that God is faithful to bring people before us. I was also preaching in the Pentecostal church there in the village.

Pro 25:25 „As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.”

This Fall God blessed us greatly by visitors from
Hungary, Umid Irgashaev from Turkey, also : Nate, Austin and Roger from Colorado, USA and Oleg and Alex from Baku, Azerbaijan.
Thank you all of you for your love and that you came to bless us and encourage in our walk with God . You are welcome to visit us !

Nina Moleva, from Baku, was with us for 3 months in Moldova and in all this time she was a
tremendous blessing for us and for the Church. She is now in her way to Medvezegorsk , Russia, to join Pastor Misha and Aigun . Thank you Nina for giving your time to God and to us here in Moldova!
Please pray for her as she needs support for her trip and time there in Medvezegorsk .
