About Emanuel

I trusted Christ as my Savior in 1995 at the Word of Life Summer Camp in Romania. That same week, at the campfire, I dedicated my life to missionary work. In 2000, God gave me the opportunity to study the Bible at the WOL Bible Institute in Argentina. After three years I returned to Romania to serve as a missionary with Word of Life. I have had the opportunity of being involved in local church ministry through Bible Clubs, evangelistic campaigns and leadership training. The burden God has laid on my heart is to serve Him among young people for the rest of my life, leading them to Christ and teaching them how to live for Him and be fruitful spiritually. Tereza and I were married in May of 2008 and we have been serving God together. In August 2011 we moved to Athens, Greece with the vision of establishing in every community a group of teenagers that will live for Christ and reach others with the Gospel.

About Tereza

I was born in Romania in a catholic family where I received a very strong religious education. This did not keep me from participating in many bad things along with my friends. All these only led me to have a stronger feeling of loneliness, disappointment and lack of direction in life. On November 2, 1995, at a WOL open-air evangelistic activity, I found out for the first time in my life that God loves me in a personal way. I understood that I was a sinner and that the wages of my sin was eternal death. I believed in Christ's sacrifice on the cross and in His resurrection. I received Him in my heart. In July 1996, at the WOL summer camp, guided by God's Word, I made the decision to dedicate my life to Him and to serve Him as a missionary for His glory. In 1997 God gave me the privilege of going to the WOL Bible Institute in Hungary for two years and for one year in Argentina. I have been involved in full time ministry since 1999. God has blessed us with 4 wonderful children: Abigail (7), Lois (4), Paul (3) and Agnes (1).
