BRASOV, ROMANIA

Nestled in the southern Carpathian Mountains, Brasov is a city of both beauty and fatalism, a post-communist city of intellectuals where failure is not an option and brokenness is never admitted. Steeped in the ancient traditions of the Eastern Orthodox Church, many Romanians claim to believe in God, yet few really practice their faith or have experienced the reality of grace or a relationship with Jesus.

The evangelical Church stands out here—a community of people who admit their own brokenness and mirror the selfless love of their Creator. Working with a local church plant and the Transylvania Center for Leadership and Development (TCLD), the MTW team focuses on relational ministry and leadership development in the community. They mentor young families, work with business people, teach English language classes, and work with students at the local university and elementary schools—all while sharing the love of Christ and hope of the gospel.

Pray for two women, Monika and Andrea, who have recently come to faith against the odds in a hard-to-reach, largely atheistic European city.

Pray for Monika, that God would continue to heal her, give her a new purpose, and protect her life from physical harm, and for Andrea, that she would grow deep roots of faith and be a witness to those like her—unlikely subjects—of the reality of the grace of God.
