Story

On Tuesday night (23 Jun 2020), serious flooding which descended on several towns and cities in western Romania, completely destroyed the home of Dani and Nuța Oprean in Oravița.

If it had taken place while they slept, they would have been killed. As it happened, Dani got out with his laptop and wallet, intending to return for as much as he could retrieve. But it was impossible to get back in, with levels rising too quickly and the torrents dangerously fast. Even when they returned to clear up yesterday, the water came up to their waists.

When they did return, they discovered that literally everything had been destroyed and/or lost. They escaped with their lives but little else.

Dani is one of the most dedicated and servant-hearted people i know in the world of Langham Partnership (and that is saying something since there are MANY). He is a pastor and academic theologian - he is a Langham Scholar, who completed his doctorate in the UK, he is a writer (and so has links with Langham Literature, and above all, is the Preaching Movement Coordinator for Langham Preaching Romania. He works 3-4 days a week, tirelessly travelling around Romania to support individuals and groups in their development as preachers.

I would love it if as many of us as possible contribute funds to support the family prayerfully AND financially. The situation is urgent as well as distressing.

    Hi everyone, Time for an update TWO WEEKS on from the disaster. FIRST of all, a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has given so far. It's been a tremendous effort and real encouragement. It is staggering what setting up a simple webpage (which literally took only a few minutes) can achieve in a short space of time. SECOND, the clear-up is nearly complete. Nothing at all was retrievable. EXCEPT for just 1 book (see photo)! Meanwhile, Dani has kept up his teaching. So let's have another BIG PUSH this week to get over the target! Thank you! Mark

    Thank you SO much to everybody for your kindness and solidarity in this project, with many of you knowing very little about the Opreans or the situation in Romania and yet STILL willing to give. It is SUCH an encouragement to us all here. But even MORE of a special blessing to Dani and the whole Oprean family. SO... let's GET THE WORD OUT and reach the target!!
