Join your friends on Sunday, September 16, at Cornerstone Church, Highway 61 and 44th Avenue, Goodview, to meet a life-changing missionary from Romania! Steven Beattie, former Bible smuggler and co-founder of East Europe Aid Association, is visiting Cornerstone Church to share stories and current news about the organization’s tireless work in the name of Jesus at 9 a.m. Sunday school and at 10 a.m. worship service. Steven’s wife, Genovieva Sfatcu Beattie, grew up in communist Romania during the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceauşescu. As a child she was persecuted by her teachers at school for being a Christian, but learned to stand firm and trust in the Lord. After being expelled from the university, Genovieva lived an exiled, barren life in a church. Later she traveled all over Romania with a Christian children’s choir she started. She survived several attempts on her life, but in 1980 she was rescued from Romania by Jimmy Carter and given political asylum in the United States. In 1985 she married Stephen Beattie, whom she first met in 1973 when he came to Romania as a Bible smuggler from England. Stephen and Genovieva have been involved in mission work for over 30 years. In 1987 they founded Eastern Europe Aid Association and they now have their own mission center in Northeast Romania. Eastern Europe Aid Association provides spiritual and material help to Romanians living in Eastern Europe and Israel, with special emphasis on children’s work. Genovieva’s videos of radio programs, her books and songs of Bible stories and teachings have been viewed over 600,000 times in 134 countries or territories on six continents. Learn more about this wonderful ministry on Sunday, September 16, at 9 and 10 a.m. at Cornerstone Church.
