New location in Romania | YWAM Craiova

Adriana, Bogdan Family (Mihai, Ema, Timotei&Sara), Daniel, Flori, Cristina
It’s been almost three months since we moved to Oltenia (South West of Romania).
Craiova is the main city from this zone, with about 300 000 people, and only 0,3% evangelical (like in the Balkans).

We are grateful for everything we’ve achieved before moving here. The Lord surprised us with the transportation, through two people that offered to take us here. We rented a house ('glory house') for our center, with 5 bedrooms, at 2 kilometers from the city center.

Our vision is to help our generation to know the Lord and to fulfil God's calling for His glory, and to bring transformation to society, and all nations!

God encouraged us with Isaiah 43:19: See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up... I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

With God's help we have already the minimum necessary for living in the house; beds & mattresses, plates, and other things that we have received in the last hour when we needed them. We still need a washing machine, vacuum cleaner, some furniture, and other things for the office and classroom...

So far we’ve enjoyed the fresh vegetables (cheaper than in Transylvania), receiving visitors (from the city and other places and even from Medias), and seeing the city (it has a beautiful center and many nice parks).

In the beginning, we prepared the field in PRAYER and prayer will remain a priority for us, but with our first team (from ProMission Festival, we lead the team for tree weeks in august) we also did research, evangelism, organized a kids camp, and a VBS, and served in a prison and in some local churches.

We look forward to organising the first Discipleship Training School in this autumn, (19th of Oct), focus on Prayer and Pioneering, with outreach in the Balkans.

In spite of the fact that many young people move from Oltenia, our prayer is that this area will become one that its people are joyful for living here and also this land will be a land in which people ”let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”(Amos 5:24).

Thank you for your support. We still need your prayers for:
Health, protection and guidance
Finances to complete equipping the house.
Bogdan family, as they move into an unfurnished apartment next to the base, before the DTS students will come.
Cristina, a husband
Daniel, Flori and Adriana (they will join us in October as staff), to have a good start and monthly support.
More DTS students.
Finances for house rent & administration

For the glory of God and His Kingdom,
Mihai & Ema Bogdan and Cristina Suciu
