In the Leca village, 20 children are enrolled on MWB’s child sponsorship programme. Three of those sponsored children live with their parents, Victor and Cristina, in poverty in a small house in difficult conditions.
Through their children’s involvement in MWB, Victor and his wife became Christians, and Victor went on to become a minister at the Church of Cantemir. Boris said, “I have known Victor for many years. I remember one Sunday he opened his heart to Jesus. My wife and I became their mentors and help them to grow spiritually.
They lived in a lot of poverty at that time. After a year Victor was ordained as deacon in the Church of Cantemir. He was one of the first volunteers helping me with MWB activities. His wife, Cristina, started helping as a volunteer at the day camps for children, too.
“Their desire to get involved in expanding the Kingdom of God grew more and more. They were very grateful that during the most difficult period of their lives, MWB was with them.
This motivated the young couple to help others as well. A few years after serving in a dedicated way, Victor was ordained as pastor. He helped with Mission work in the neighbouring villages. Seeing people’s need for God, one day he said to me, ‘Brother Boris, I want to start a group of disciples in Leca village, so that through the children, we can reach the hearts of their parents, grandparents and other people in the village.’
“New doors were opened to other families in the village, and it became necessary to plant a church in the village to serve them. An old, small house was bought, and with God’s help, the door and windows were replaced.
“These volunteers, Victor and Cristina, are ready to move to Leca village and to serve there and to be a light for the people there.
“Victor and Cristina are an example of how MWB's work can help and save souls, as well as grow workers and plant new churches.
