Ciprian, Eve, and Arame Droma
Romania and Middle East
Ciprian and Eve were each in the Middle East from 2012 until 2016. They got married in the Middle East on July 1st, 2016. Ciprian held meetings in his house for Bible reading, prayer, and worship. He also wrote and recorded Christian songs and led worship often for two local churches and an international church. Eve was involved in projects related to linguistics, particularly for the purpose of Bible translation. Together, they led Scripture-based groups to help people recover emotionally and spiritually from the effects of traumatic events. Among those who participated in such groups were people who fled war zones and surrounding areas.
On June 15th, 2017, little Arame Fanica Droma joined the family. Praise God! On August 3rd, 2017, they moved to Romania. They believe that they are lead by God to work among Ciprian’s relatives, who are gypsies (Roma) for the next 5 to 6 years. More than 20 of them have gotten baptized in the past ten years and many more are seeking the Lord. Ciprian and Eve will do the same type of work that were doing in the Middle East: Bible reading meetings, trauma healing groups, music ministry, linguistics, etc. Eve is working on a written and audio translation of the Gospel of Luke into the Silversmith gypsy dialect. Ciprian is attending an online Bible college in Bucharest, hoping to be ordained as a pastor at the end of his studies.
With the Lord’s help, they pray and plan to return to the Middle East for about a month each year, starting next spring. Perhaps, in the future, they may return to the Middle East for an extended period of time.
We want to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ with all of our lives and go wherever He calls us to go and do the good work He is giving us to do.
“For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.” Eph. 2:10
