Brent and Nora’s calling to ministry in Romania
Hello! My name is Brent and this is my wife Nora. We are from Birmingham, we have been married since 2006 and we have two young sons. We are part of the leadership team of Word of Hands, a Christian BSL Fellowship in Birmingham launched in 2009.
About out calling to Romania…read from this Bible: Ezekiel 47:1-12
Before we got married in 2005, we received a vision from God for our ministry based on Ezekiel 47:1-12. I share these verses in brief; there is the temple in Jerusalem, facing the East, and as the water flows out of it, the water becomes into a deep large river flowing towards the East, and into the Dead Sea. When the river water reaches the Dead Sea, the sea becomes fresh, produce trees with lots of leaves and fruits. There will be more of kinds of fishes in the sea. The fruit is for food and the leaves are for healing.
In 2012, God called us to move to Romania to reach out to the Deaf community in Nora’s home town, Constanta. In the West of Romania there are a few Christian Deaf churches, with their own Deaf leaders, and in the capital of Romania, Bucharest, likewise where there is a Deaf church with its own Deaf pastor. In Constanta there is no such access for the Deaf people and there is no fellowship. There are less than 10 qualified interpreters in the whole country, so there’s limited access to events, conferences, hearing churches.
We feel that God is calling us to go there to support the Deaf community by: Learning Romanian sign language and teaching the hearing people deaf awareness Improving social activities and creating opportunities for the Deaf people to enjoy life Sharing God’s love for them through practical help/hobbies/sports/testimonies Outreaching the isolated Deaf people, Deaf children of hearing parents Run Deaf Alpha courses and hopefully one day set up a fellowship in Romanian sign language
When do we move and what happens from now until then Our plan is to move to Romania in August 2015. Until then we want to raise as much awareness and support from our friends and churches in the UK/abroad as possible.
So if you would like to hear more about our ministry you can contact us to arrange a visit. We would like to keep you informed with the updates, so please leave a message with your email address so we can email our latest newsletter. Word of Hands will support and release us to do God’s work in Constanta.
In order to give our full attention and effort to this ministry we will need your support in prayer and financially. If you feel prompted by God to donate towards our ministry in Romania, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to give you the bank details. Any donation would be greatly appreciated, either as a one-off or on a monthly basis.
We would really appreciate your prayers as we are preparing for a big adventure for all of us as a family. Thanks for watching and for your support and prayers. God bless you!
