What is your ministry?

Our ministry in Makfalva is to preach the gospel of Jesus in a secular culture. We were called by God to move to this village and to be witnesses for Him. We do this with our everyday lives, through our Sunday church services, through the children's club and camps that we organize, and through every relationship we have with the people. I am a preacher and the pastor in our church.

When did you trust Christ?

I decided to follow Jesus as a child. I grew up in the church in a Christian family. As I grew and learned, I came to an understanding of who God was and what Jesus had done for me on the cross. In prayer I confessed my sins and asked Him to be my savior and Lord.

What have been the defining moments of your Christian walk?

My family and my church had a great impact on my faith. The yearly, international Christian camps that I attended and the people I met there strengthened my faith and broadened my views. My mentors and heroes in the faith have greatly helped me in deepening my faith. The sins that I have committed as an adult and the process of repentance has also been life changing. My wife and my kids are also constantly refining me.

What do you hope to gain from participating?

It is always motivating to see how God works in the world. Seeing that gives us courage and strengthens our conviction to serve Jesus where we are. I expect that the Forum will help me with my struggles and that I will be able to learn from other people’s experiences. I would like to encounter new ideas that I can implement in my context. I hope to make new contacts with people with whom we can serve together in the future.

What is your leadership role or what were your past leadership roles?

I was a youth leader in my local church.

Why should someone invest in your ministry?

I am young and settled with my family in the place where God wants us to be. We have a clear calling from God to serve Him, and we want to obey that call and serve Him with all our lives.
