Grace Baptist Church of Topraisar, Romania was started in our living room with a hand-full of believers looking for a place to worship together. Since then we have witnessed souls saved, baptized and lives dedicated in serving the Lord more faithfully. We have had the privilege to conducted Summer VBS's, Boys & Girls clubs and hosted several work teams and church groups. Currently we are running around 10 adults in attendance, Brenda started a Ladies Bible Study last year, and we have plans to start a Men's Prayer Breakfast and Bible Study. Please pray for us as we continue reaching out into our community and neighboring villages to share the gospel with the unsaved.
Our Ladies Bible Study is called, Echoes of Encouragement. We meet every Friday afternoon to be an encouragement to each other, sing hymns, do a craft, game or activity and study God’s Word together. Some of these ladies are not able to attend a regular service in the Baptist church, so they come to this with their husband’s blessings and enjoy the time together. We also started the Secret Sister exchange that the women appear to really enjoy! They are encouraged to pray for their Secret Sister and once a month give her a small gift, note, or chocolates to remind her sister that she is being thought of. During special holidays, (Valentine’s, Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas) we like to have a banquet or party planned where the women are encouraged to invite friends or family to attend in hopes of reaching more women in our community.
