Preaching the Gospel in Many Different Ways

Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” (Matthew 25:34-36)

Pastor Victor, his wife, and his church do unique relief work ministry in some of the poorest areas of Moldova. They’ve seen that as people experience the tangible love and care for their physical needs, they respond well to hearing about their biggest need—their need for a Savior.

Pastor Victor said,

Missionary evangelistic work and preaching the gospel has many different ways as the Bible tells us. We are feeding and dressing several families during a year—both believers and unbelievers. Regularly we provide food and clothing for the orphanages.

Feeding the Poor

Sometimes people do not have bread on the table to feed their kids, pay for medicine, or pay the utilities. They are in prayer for people like Pastor Victor and his team to help. Sometimes the team even covers the cost of a funeral service because they do not have the funds to cover it. Other times they pay for the urgent medical needs in case of an accident.

Summer Camp

Running a summer camp for people in poor areas may seem like a frivolous and silly way to help, but it’s really a strategic in-road for relationship-building and gospel conversations in Moldova.

Recently, Pastor Victor and his team ran camps in five locations. They feed the kids three meals a day, do Bible studies and games, and do an evangelistic music program.

Throughout the events, they preach the gospel over and over while many kids and their parents listen. Many received Christ!

Medical Work

During the medical work outreach trips, Pastor Victor and his team evangelize the local people in the villages and hand out Bibles. On a recent trip to three different villages, many people repented, and they are now looking into starting churches in those regions. With God’s help, they believe they can start a church in those areas.

About Evangelism and Caring for the Poor

The work in Moldova (an eastern European country) involves reaching a population of 3.5 million people with the gospel.

Currently, more than one thousand villages in Moldova have never had a gospel witness. Pastor Victor is working hard to spread the good news among the Moldovans through evangelism and caring for the poor. Victor provides for the needs of poor people with food, medicine, and other things. He also trains new disciples for future ministry and works with orphanage families.

This outreach is done through church planting in six rural villages, discipleship, weekly children’s camps, and providing clothing for the poor and disabled as funds are available.
