Moldova is one of the old ‘Soviet bloc’ countries about which little is known in the West even today. These pages talk of a Saviour determined to save those shut away in closed institutions in Moldova, and of the effects of revival in Romania and Moldova in recent years. They speak of a God who still uses the puniest of instruments to demonstrate His power and glory.
“In the West, Christians sometimes equate the kingdom of God with big crowds and big money. This book reminds us that God works powerfully in poverty, darkness, and loneliness—to the praise of His glorious grace. Both those interested in the progress of the gospel in Eastern Europe and those who simply desire to grow in their faith will find inspiration from these accounts by Maureen Wise.”
Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“This account of God moving by His Spirit in Romania and Moldova makes humbling and thrilling reading. Having had the privilege of visiting the latter country, I warmly commend this work, and may it create a desire in our own hearts for the Lord to visit us again in power here in Wales.”
Rev Wyn Hughes, Pastor, Heath Evangelical Church, Cardiff
Converted at the age of 17 through reading the Bible, Maureen Wise was soon given a burden to pray for Communist countries in Eastern Europe. Having trained as a social worker, she visited a number of those countries prior to 1989 and then went to work in Romania soon after the Revolution and subsequently in Moldova. Many of her students in Romania were literally children of a recent revival. A spiritual awakening in Moldova was also the background to her work in that country where she and her friends witnessed the power of God to save, to bless and to provide.
