Missionary to Hungary

Ministry Description

I serve in the Bible Institute as the Dean of Women, encouraging and helping the ladies in the student body to grow during their time here - not only in their knowledge, but in their relationships with God and with people. My desire is that, when they leave, they will also dare to impact others. It is a great privilege to hear their testimonies and to see how God is currently working in their lives. As the Dean of Women I’d like to be available for them, and to become a support to whom they can confidently turn to with their joys and sorrows. Besides counseling and discipleship, I lead devotions and meetings for the girls. I am grateful to God that I can take part in such a wonderful ministry, and that He is forming my life as well through this.

About Monika

I was born in Transylvania, Romania into a church going Christian family. Since my childhood I had opportunities to hear the gospel, and I was eight years old when I entrusted my life to Jesus Christ. Not long after that I dedicated myself to serve God. Since my decision I have had many ministry opportunities. In the beginning I ministered to Sunday School kids, then joined the work of Awana clubs, where there were huge opportunities to share the gospel. My college years played a major role in the formation of my personality and my spiritual growth. God gave me Christian friends whose lives were great examples for me, and I had a growing desire to serve the Lord full time. A dream of mine came true when He lead me to the Word of Life Bible Institute in Hungary. From the first moment I fell in love with the place and the people, and I spent there two wonderful years as a student. After spending another year at home by the grace of God I was able to return as a Word of Life missionary. Since September 2004 I have been serving in the Bible Institute as the Dean of Women.
