At the beginning of October 2014, MLI organized its fall Church Based Leadership Development intensive training for women. Between October 06th-09th, approximately 28 women came from four different areas of Romania (Câmpina – south Romania; Fetești – south-east Romania, Sibiu – center Romania, Timisoara & Carpinis-west Romania). The theme of the Conference was: “How to Study the Bible”. The speaker/teacher this fall was our dear sister and good friend Stephanie Moore from Memphis TN. Once again the time spent together at Alpiniș was special; it was a time of serious Bible study, sweet fellowship, building relationship, growing in the knowledge of the Lord, spiritual and physical renewal. Thank you so much Stephanie for your love and dedication for God and for His people in Romania. We appreciate the sacrifice you made to come all the way to Romania and serve God’s people here. About a week after Stephanie’s arrival in Romania, came John Moore, Stephanie’s husband, and together we visited the city of Varset in Serbia and few other cities in Romania where we meat different Leadership groups. Both, John and Stephanie are long time friends and dedicated partners of the ministry of Missio Link International. Thank you so much for your visit; as always you are a great blessing and an encouragement for all of us. Please take a few minutes to read the impressions of some of the participants at the leadership training.

I learned how to study the Word of God in depth, how to apply it to my life and how to easily explain it to others. I am so grateful for this opportunity to study and be encouraged by sisters from Romania and from USA to be more diligent in my relationship with the Lord. Elena Vasile – Campina

I thank the Lord for DSC_2046_1600x1067 the grace to participate at this conference where I could “recharge” my spiritual batteries. I pray God would help me apply and practice what we were taught about studying the Bible, in my personal devotional time, with my family and in the ministry where He has placed us. May the Lord bless all those who made this retreat possible! Lili Iosub – Carpinis

The conference was so well structured and presented that I was encouraged in studying the Bible, knowing that it’s a method that I could apply on my own too. I realized that many times I studied the Bible superficially and that I need to go more in depth through this inductive Bible study – to observe, interpret and apply what I study. We appreciate all you have done for us and thank you for everything you have given us! Lia Turcu – Sibiu

This was the first time I participated at such a conference and I was thrilled that I had the grace to accumulate precious information for my own spiritual growth and in order to teach others around me. I humbly admit that I need-ed it so much and I pray the Lord would help me apply it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Kati Matyas – Medias

I have been enriched through the Word of God by the study done at this conference. Stephanie’s sessions were very clear and easy to understand. May the Lord bless you for giving us the opportunity to study the Bible and to discover new things that would motivate us to apply God’s truth in our daily lives. Geta Mogosanu – Timisoara

Although what I heard here was not new, the teachings were well structured and organized so that we would understand better and have a unitary, logical and practical perspective that we could apply in our day to day lives so that we would be trans-formed more and more according to God’s image. This inductive Bible study is very practical and I pray the Lord would help us be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Carmen Acomanoai – Fetesti

Thank you so much for your continue support for God’s work in Romania. Investing in people is the best investment we can make, it has everlasting results. Your prayers, love and generosity means so much for us; it encourages us and give us strength to continue. Your partnership with us is vital, without your very important support we could not do what we do. You all are in our hearts and we pray for you! May the Lord bless you!
