Crossing the border from Romania into Moldova was the first time I really felt like I was passing behind the 'iron curtain.' This former communist nation had evidences of days past with numerous concrete block buildings and Soviet-era lookouts at the border crossing. Maybe the signs in Russian style Cyrillic lettering added to the flavour for us.
The people were hungry for the Gospel though and it was great to minister with a pastor who not only had a church in Cahul, Moldova, but he was planting another church in Galati, Romania not far away. Pray for this nation that God would move where many women are unfortunately the victims of human trafficking.
