Alexandru Danilenco, Director of MWB in Romania, shares that one of the key ways the Mission works is our partnership with local churches.
“Reaching people for Christ is the ultimate goal for both our Mission and the church. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do – or even exist at all – if it were not for church partnerships. Our presence in a community is sometimes for a short time, but the church remains and will continue to go on until Christ’s return.”
Many churches in Romania (and across Eastern Europe) don’t have the material or financial resources; this is where MWB comes in. People are not always ready to listen to the gospel unless they can see it in action – and that’s what the Mission does through its many programs.
Alexandru continued: “As well as material support, MWB gives value to the church – we tell people about our partnership with the church and invite them to the services where they can learn more about God.”
“In many communities, people would never go to church until they get in contact with MWB, so in a way, the Mission is a connecting point between the individual and the church.”
