Troy and Heidi Darrin will be visiting Evangel on Sunday March, 20.
Troy and Heidi are missionaries in Moldova — Europe’s poorest country. After years of being a closed country, Moldova is now open to the gospel. Believers meet freely and without fear, committed young pastors are ready to be trained, and the church is experiencing new growth. Through leadership training, church planting efforts, MAPS construction teams, and Convoy of Hope outreaches, their goal is to reach Moldova for Christ. Now is the time for . . . The Moldova Mission!
Thank you for worshipping with us today!
If you are visiting us for the first time, please stop at our Welcome Center after the service. We would like to get to know you better and give you a special thank you gift. Our Welcome Center is located in the back of the Sanctuary.
