Arcadii & Natasha Crescuic
Church Leaders in the village of Calimanesti, Moldova
Grace has been working for several years with Arcadii and Natasha in Calimanesti. The work is draining, and the Orthodox Church is against it. Please continue to lift them up in prayer.
- The number of leaders in the church has grown. Pray for Igor (who is in training to be a pastor) and Elena, their daughter Felicia, Mariana, Alexander, Liuda and other leaders “that God will give them new power, wisdom, love, patience, and spiritual light”
- “To increase everything we do in the ministry.”
- For removal of the barriers keeping people from coming to God- “shame, disbelief, love of sin,” and opposition from the Orthodox Church and school teachers
- Pastor Victor travels to Calimanesti Sunday afternoons to preach and Wednesdays to hold Bible study with the local mean and boys. Please pray for open hearts and attentiveness.
- Space needs in the church building, especially with the elderly eating lunch there during the week
- How to be salt and light amongst hurting people living in extreme poverty and often struggling with alcoholism
