Our Trip to Romania Part 1 (Bucharest)

We began our journey to Romania on March 14 at Ben Gurion airport. When we arrived at our gate, we were met by volunteers who were asking passengers to carry pre-approved care packages full of supplies for Ukrainian refugees. These included medicines and other necessities. We offered to take one and subsequently our picture was put in The Times of Israel. Some dear friends sent us a screen shot of it (above).

Once at the Bucharest airport that evening, we dropped off the package and were met by our Romanian/Eastern Europe Team leader George Popa. He arranged every aspect of this trip and we were excited to begin! The next day, we had meetings and a briefing of the trip.

On the morning of March 16, Baruch taught 3 sessions from the book of Judges for the Baptist Bible College in Bucharest. Many students were watching via Zoom and we also had a nice crowd as well. The sessions continued the next morning with studies of Luke 14. Baruch feels very blessed to share Biblical teaching with students who will then be teaching their own congregations in the future and thus multiplying the impact.

In the pictures above, you can see the setup for the teachings, some of the resources we have available in the Romanian language. Daniel, who is one of our translators and a true servant, and Alexandra who is also a translator.

On the evening of March 16, Baruch taught two sessions from the book of Ephesians at Jesus the Savior church.

On March 17, Baruch taught more sessions for the Bible college and then conducted a child dedication for the daughter of one of our translators. That evening we drove to our next stop, Targoviste.

While in Bucharest, we visited a very important and difficult place. I will share that in a separate post.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Very interesting to see and hear that people are interested to study God´s word.

  2. Even in the midst of wars and rumors of war our true servants are about doing the will of Him who sent them. To G-d be the Glory.
    Joel 2:27-30 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

  3. We have been praying intensively for this trip, and are confident that Bro. Baruch’s eloquent and clear teachings will encourage deeply those searching for truth and understanding of the Holy Scriptures. May our Heavenly Father continue using Bro. Baruch, sister Rivka, and all the volunteers of LoveIsrael.org!
