The second city we visited was Targoviste. This is a very important city and is probably best know for where Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu, the former Romania president and his wife during the communist era. They were found guilty of genocide and executed on December 25, 1989. You can find much information about it on the internet.
Claudia, who is part of our Romanian translation team and translated for Baruch’s messages, arranged the guided tour. It was very informative and even those Romanians traveling with us learned some details about the events leading up to the arrest and trial of the former President.
In the afternoon, we visited with a very special family. They have many challenges, but their love for the L-rd and their trust in Him shows through. They were such a blessing to us.
In the evening, Baruch taught at Efraim church. His topics were the role of the Mother and the role of the Father. The next day, Shabbat, Baruch taught 4 sessions on the book of James (which is Yaacov in Romanian [and Hebrew]). That night, after Shabbat, we drove to Timisoara to begin another time of teaching and interviews.
We were also very happy to have Tomasz, our Polish-language translator, with us for the first part of our trip!
