(Romania)–Elsewhere, although Romania was freed from the bonds of communism over a decade ago, its shadow still remains. That’s according to a missionary who lives in Bucharest. Eddie White is speaking from first hand experience with trying to support the evangelistic church there. “You would think that after 11 years, that a country would be able to turn itself around with freedom. But unfortunately, the biggest problem that Romania is dealing with is corruption. The same people that were running government offices under Communism, are still in government office.” White believes that because of the struggles to survive, people are turning to the hope of Christ. “Romania is a country right now of opening doors and planting seeds. I’d love to tell you that Romania is in revival, like South America, but it’s not. There’s a sense of hopelessness there. Pray for God to open the doors, for the seeds to be planted, and for and for the young people to see that God is there for them.” White and his family are currently staying at D&D Missionary Homes in Florida while in the United States.
