Amber, Dave, Ruth, Ben, and Celeste (l to r)Welcome to our web site! We appreciate your desire to learn more about us and the ministry God has called us to in Romania.

Our family is serving as part of the Baptist Mid-Missions (BMM) church planting team located in northwest Romania. Our focus is evangelism, discipleship, and outreach among the Roma (Gypsies). There are over 2 million Roma living in Romania today. The Roma are largely unchurched and widely discriminated against. Thus, they are often treated as outcasts, which means the opportunities for ministry are endless. Currently we are working alongside teammates Luke and Kim Warner and Nicki Carr with a church plant in the village of Luncsoara, one hour east of Oradea.

We have two daughters, Celeste (23) and Amber (20). Celeste is a 2022 Studio Art graduate from Cedarville University. She married Benjamin Veenstra on May 14, 2022. Amber is a junior at Miami University (Oxford, Ohio). She is working toward dual degrees in East Asian Languages and Cultures and International Studies. We were appointed by BMM in July 2006, and we completed deputation in July 2009. We completed our third term in May 2021, and we returned to the field in June 2022.
