I would like to say THANK YOU to all who have prayed for MTS and who have given of their finances and time.  Without YOUR help, this ministry could not exist.  Only in heaven will you know what your help has accomplished for the people in Romania.  Romania entered the European Union on January 1, 2007, there are many changes taking place.  These changes have already caused prices to soar and for the widows, the elderly and the poor families, this has brought on increased burdens in trying to exist from one month to another.  Salaries for those working are increasing, but very slowly and still very meager.

Without the WORD OF GOD there is no hope for the people.  Our main vision and goal is to try to provide the gospel to as many people as we can, especially in the villages that have never had a church and to those who have never heard that JESUS is the answer for them.  We do this by evangelizing, providing Bibles, giving out tracts and holding children's classes.  We are in the process of looking for Romanian pastors and believers who will be willing to go to these villages to minister and disciple new believers.  This is very hard because most people do not want to go to the villages where there is no inside plumbing, toilets, running water, restaurants, motels and other convenient facilities.  Many of these villagers have never left the area where they live and are illiterate so this is one reason they have never heard the gospel.  Pelase PRAY with us that GOD will send us workers for the harvest.  The time is short!  JESUS is coming soon and our vision is to prepare people for His coming by sharing the Word of God.  Once we find the workers, we will need sponsors to help us provide funds for their gas and other expenses.

If you are interested in going to Romania to help build or repair houses for poor families, please call or email Chris at MTS.  You can go as an individual or with a team.
