Moldova is a very poor country in Eastern Europe, between Romania and Ukraine. There is very little paid work available and many people leave the country in search of work.

We support Ruslan and Larisa Telpiz and their family. Ruslan is the pastor of a Baptist church in the village of Gotesti. His ministry includes leading Sunday services, preaching, baptisms, pastoral care of church members and involvement in outreach and evangelism in the village and surrounding areas. The church also runs an after-school day care centre for vulnerable children, providing a meal, games and craft and help with school work, in a caring and supportive environment.

Ruslan was instrumental in planting a church in the nearby village of Chircani. He helps the leaders, Igor and Tanya. Larisa oversees Gotesti Church’s work with women and children.

Members of St Michael’s Church regularly visit Gotesti and Chircani, helping with children’s summer camps, going on pastoral visits to people in their homes and encouraging the church members and leaders.
