Our purpose is to proclaim the Gospel to people from an Orthodox background that probably have never heard how to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.We will do evangelism in the commune of Poiana Mare (Dolj), a remoted place in the extreme south-west of Romania. Together with local church members we want to connect with people and preach the Gospel in an area where far less than 1 % of the population are born again believers.
Available for: Singles Couples Groups
• Prayer – during team devotions and prayer walks on the street
• Evangelism – personal conversations with people on the street, home visits, organized meetings for children and youth ministry
• Possibly some practical work – helping sick people or widows at their homes; voluntary service for the benefit of the community (for example collecting garbage from the park)
• Encouraging local believers – sharing with them our lives, our testimonies and our songs
You should have a heart for the lost, without fear of a spiritual battle, and enthusiastic about sharing the Gospel with whoever we will have the chance to meet. All participants should be physically fit, able to cope with irregular meal schedules and a hot climate. 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.
Team members will probably stay in the local church building. Please ensure you have your own sleeping bag and air mattress. Toilet facilities may be 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 and may have a rotating "kitchen help" schedule for you to be involved in.
