Five Ohio Free Methodist Churches worked together to raise start-up funds for a family to begin ministry in Romania. According to Mission Match follow-up information from the churches, "This has been an exciting partnership for the Ohio churches. The churches that participated definitely experienced an increase in missions awareness and participation in their respective congregations." The family supported by these funds wrote, "It is truly amazing to look back over the last few months and see how God has provided. ... Now the real work begins. ... However, we must not forget the most important work, and that is praising our Lord. ... What a great God we serve!"
