The Pentecostal Union is the central church office which we work from. It’s the Moldovan equivalent to Assemblies Of God offices in Springfield, MO.

    Moldova is a dependent country with little natural resources. Many have given up because of the hopelessness they feel for a better tomorrow. God uses missionaries and associates in Moldova to be carriers of hope for a better life, built on Jesus Christ as the Rock for the foundation.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

To give you an idea of the size of Moldova

Hebrews 13:16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others,

for with such sacrifices God is pleased.


Having lived under the oppression of the former USSR, adults are very suspicious of each other and more so of foreighners. It takes time to connect with Moldovan’s in a meaningful way. We find it is more productive to enable local pastors to reach out to the people of their surrounding communities.

Some Facts

The UN has declared Moldova as the poorest nation in Eurasia. The Average salary is roughly equal to $285 USD per month.

Moldova has serious human trafficking, drug and alcohol problems.

Because of a high poverty level, many families have members working in other countries just to make ends meet.

Moldavia declared independence from the former USSR in 1991 and renamed their country Moldova.

The largest city is Chisinau (key-she-now) with a population of about 670,000 ; about the size of Milwaukee Wisconsin. The population increases significantly when college students come from villages during the school months.

The official language is Moldovan which is mostly Romanian.

Most people speak two or more languages. Romanian, Russian, French, Ukrainian and English are few of the common ones.

Ministry often begins with loving on the children. When children come, the adults are not far behind.
It’s heartbreaking to hear sometimes the suspicion that, “Americans are just trying to buy us.” 
from some Moldovans.   All we are doing is simply -
 1 John 3:17-18 -  Anyone who has material possesions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with just words or tongue but with actions in truth.
