Missionaries in Romania, Michael and Mihaela Gravitt, have a lot going on with family and church of late. Among the activities has been the children’s church hiking trips, camping trips, cookouts with small groups, VBS outreach in a poor village, Mihaela’s brother visiting from Canada, and the fact the associate pastor was on vacation for two weeks during this busy time!
But, there is big news … three people will be water baptized. None of this, however, would’ve been possible without support. Michael is grateful for the prayers, the giving, and basically helping to keep them in Romania. Because of that support, more souls are going to heaven, and more missions-minded people are reaching the lost. When the Gravitts see the children they are able to reach and the church they are able to support, the realization comes that donors are as much a part as they are, and they could not do what they do without them.
Because of the “I Dream of a Church” campaign and City Church of Chattanooga, they have finally been able to purchase a parsonage for their family to stay in! For the first 6-1/2 years, they lived in an extremely hot 380 sq. ft. top-floor apartment. Next, they lived with a church in their house for approximately 3-1/2 years. Finally, they now have a place to stay with their family and are able to focus their money and time on the church and the ministry.
