" And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him..." Col. 3:17
In this informational letter, we would like to introduce you a little closer to our voluntary ministry "Maranatha.” We would like to also share a little bit about our ministries history.
Sometime around the mid 80's, a Christian musical group was organized in Moldova. They participated in their church "Philadelphia" and they held services in other churches.
In the beginning of 1990, God gave freedom to preach the word of God in Moldova and in the former Soviet Union. Our group started to do more and more missionary trips in Moldova and neighboring countries, setting the foundation of our ministry.
In July of 92, we had a first trip to Siberia, in cities such as Tumen, Tumsk, Camerobo, Habarovsk and other regions in the Far East. In present time, our old friends stayed behind to work in those churches that our ministry founded. On 29th of November, 2000, the ministry "Maranatha" was established in the city of Tacoma, Washington. The ministry has only 2 important goals:
1. To support the word of God around Moldova and the neighboring
2. To support orphanages, families with many kids, street kids and disabled.
In our home town, Moldova, Balti, our missionaries have been rented a place to provide support for many starving, freezing and ill children. By organization of Sunday school, many children started to attend these Sunday school services. In November of 2000, our missionaries, gathered for about 170 children. These children were well fed, provided with warm cloths and an opportunity to attend Sunday school. On Christmas of that year, some of the children brought their parents for a church service. Few parents and its children accepted Jesus Christ as their personal saver. In the future, with God's help, we are planning to open a church in that region.
Today, we are being asked to support a Christian radio broadcast around Moldova, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. We are also trying to help the people in the house of disabled in the town Drokia, Badyshani in Moldova.
