From smuggling Bibles behind the Iron Curtain to openly sharing the gospel, for over 60 years Mission Without Borders (MWB) and churches in Romania have together firmly trusted God to lead them through both safety and peril, to ensure the gospel is spread and people’s lives are transformed.
Samuel, pastor of the church in Simleul Silvaniei, said, “We’re extremely happy to partner with the Mission in the glorious vision of leading people to Christ and supporting them to know Christ more and to overcome their circumstances.
“Prayers, volunteers, spiritual counseling, practical help, and infrastructure are some of the things we gladly share with the Mission. Summer camps, after school programs, food parcels, clothing, school supplies, furniture, scholarships, birthday parties, special celebrations, self-sufficiency projects, love, dedication, and more – are things that the Mission blesses our communities with.
MWB's partnerships with local churches is key to our strategy to have the greatest impact ina community.
Timotei, pastor of the church in Victoria, said, “Seeing families overcome their difficult circumstances and have their lives changed through the partnership we have with the Mission is just amazing.”
Marius, pastor of a church cluster in Valcea county, said, “It’s not just about the programs the Mission carries out, it’s also about the relationships that are established.”
Working side by side with churches in sharing the gospel is a key part of the way that Mission Without Borders works. Alexandru Danilenco, director of MWB in Romania, shares more about the importance of church partnerships.
