Missions Area: Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest is the capital of Romania and is one of the most populated cities in Europe. It’s more than 400 years old. Several lakes are located within the city. The city is split into several different sectors and is governed by a mayor.

Believers there need to be taught what it means to daily follow Christ—at work, in the home, on vacation, etc. A big part of this need also includes boldness in evangelism—how to talk to neighbors about Jesus in a way that is not divisive or watered down. This is what the Armstrongs are teaching them.

Additional information and activities are in Fall Mission Friends Leader, pages 26–45, the October leaflet of Fall Mission Friends at Home, and First Steps in Missions, vol. 24, pages 14–20. Missions Leader: WMU Annual Planning Guide 2018–19 has planning helps.
