This week's Happy Sunday post is devoted simply to this darling couple and the work on which they are about to embark, as well as to the other stalwart members of the Church here in Romania.
Brother and Sister Radu are Romania's first senior couple to serve a mission. They have been called to serve in the Bern, Switzerland LDS Temple for 2 years, starting tomorrow.
My heart is so full of joy, seeing this sweet couple dedicate their time, money, and energy to serving the Lord and His children. They are a tremendous example to the other members here in Romania, and evidence that the Church truly has grown and developed since entering these borders in 1990.
There are so many wonderful, faithful members in this country. The Radus, I'm sure, are the first of many senior couples from Romania who will go forth to share the gospel as represents of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And this is Andreei, a young man from Ploiești who was here in Cluj a couple weeks ago for a joint Cluj-Ploiești youth activity. At the activity, he showed off his own "I'm a Mormon" video that he made himself. This video alone speaks volumes to the incredible faith and strength of the youth here. Andreei is currently waiting for his mission call and undoubtedly will serve with all his heart, might, mind, and soul wherever he is called.
And ye shall go forth in the power of my Spirit, preaching my gospel, two by two, in my name, lifting up your voices as with the sound of a trump, declaring my word like unto angels of God. (D&C 42:6)
