BRIAN & CYNTHIA FOUTS
While studying at Calvary Boise’s Ministry Discipleship School, the Foutses felt a burden to be foreign missionaries. As they prayed for God’s will, He focused them on Romania where they moved in 2005. View the most recent video update.
God called Natalie to Romania during a short-term mission trip in 2005.
New Beginnings is a humanitarian ministry of Calvary Boise and Calvary Chapel Bistrita that takes abandoned Romanian children and places them with a loving Romanian family. The children are then raised within a Christian household and attend CC Bistrita. We provide for their needs both practically and spiritually in an effort to raise the next generation to impact their country and culture for the Kingdom of God.
The Daniela Foundation was created to serve the poor and hurting of Romania. Currently, it helps to serve the practical needs of the village of Sat. Patroaia-Vale by providing food and clothing. The ultimate goal of this outreach is to be a lighthouse on a hill, providing spiritual nourishment to a country with deep-seeded roots in traditional religion but lacking in true relationship with Christ. In faith, the Daniela Foundation has constructed a two-family home to house a missionary family willing to disciple a local family who feel called to shepherd the small town.
If you were to ask a group of average Romanians if they are Christian, they would respond with, “Of course we are. We are Romanian.” About 87% of the population is Romanian Orthodox, but their religion is more a social identity than a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. In this warm, welcoming culture it is vital that missionaries get to know individuals personally. With that in mind Calvary Boise sent Brian and Cynthia Fouts and Natalie Bridges, who ministers with them, to Bistrita a north-central city with a population of about 80,000. The Foutses pastor a church while Natalie works in an orphanage. Everything they do aims to point people to Christ.
