story Day 1 – Chinari


The village of Chinari, which is near Targu Mures in Romania, is a small rural community on the Mures River. On visits to this part of Romania we regularly visit a church there on Saturday evenings. The music is loud, the praying is loud, and the joy of the Lord is visible ‘big time’. This is a Roma (Gypsy) Pentecostal church located high up on a hill in a very poor village outside of Chinari. Doug is usually asked to preach and assist in the prayer ministry. In this photo parents bring a child forward for anointing and healing prayer. We are thankful to Pastor Relu, his wife Nana, and their children for warm hospitality and encouraging friendship. Please pray for this ministry.
