New Grace Church - Mission Romania

I recently returned from my first trip to Romania. The trip was life changing for me.  I appreciated having the opportunity to serve Ukrainian Refugees in Bucharest. I also had an opportunity to preach at a local church in Romania.

I am so thankful for everyone who helped support my trip.  I could not have made this trip without your help. 

I’d like to share with you about a great opportunity that I believe God is leading me to – an opportunity to serve people in Romania on a another mission tip. That’s why I’m writing…I’d love for you to be a financial and prayer partner in this mission with me.

In April, I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Romania with Matthew 25 Project. The war in Ukraine is a terrible humanitarian crisis. As I watched news reports and saw what was happening to the people of Ukraine, I knew I had to find a way to help. 

Here are some scenes from my trip.

Matthew 25 Project is partnering with local missions and relief organizations in Romania to provide support to Ukrainian Refugees in Bucharest, Romania. Matthew 25 Project offers complete logistical coordination for our team, on-site support, and connects us with invaluable partners in Bucharest. They have worked with local churches in Romania, developed relationships and gained acceptance among the community there. I am excited for the opportunity to serve with Forward Edge.

My team from New Grace Church will spend most of our time focused on helping Ukrainian Refugees in Bucharest. We will also help pack and load trucks headed to Ukraine to help feed hungry families in Ukraine.  Above all, we are devoted to serving the local people and developing relationships with them! This was Christ’s model for evangelism and we are excited to be a part of the Great Commission in Bucharest. 

You can help me and the New Grace Missions team by being a part of our prayer and financial support team. As I prepare for the trip, I need your prayers for safety and God to work in and through me, and I want to humbly ask you to consider supporting me financially. The cost of the trip is $2500. Any amount would be great, but if you would be willing to contribute $20, $50, $100 or more, it would really help me to reach my goal!

Matthew 25 Project is helping members of our team raise funds for our mission trip through coffee sales.  Our supporters can buy gourmet coffee from around the world on the Matthew 25 Project website and a portion of every sale generated by our team will help fund our mission trip to Romania. Everyone loves coffee! Right!

I look forward to letting you know how the trip impacted my life when I return!
