From Iasi

As I write, it is early morning and I am looking out of the window of my room as a light snow begins to dust the ground here in Iasi, Romania.

Up in the Northeast corner of the country about 25 kilometers from the border of the former Soviet Union, Iasi has been one of the primary sites of CRM’s ministry in this country since the late 80s. Our focus here has been threefold over the years: a strong, individual discipling and mentoring work among younger leaders, business for mission, and an InnerCHANGE team.

The results of this patient, steady ministry these past two decades is nothing short of remarkable. It is a testimony to the power of presence. Some heroic people have given their all to help make it happen here on the ground, and others have faithfully partnered with us behind the scenes in prayer and through giving.

The results are transformational and are already altering the fabric of this society. It is a wonderful case study of the power of Jesus kingdom and how, despite human frailty, discouragement and sometime fierce opposition, the Spirit of God can bring new life in the midst of utter hopelessness.

Deo Gloria!
