Merchant to Romania
Business as Mission in Post-Communist Eastern Europe
DayOne Publications, 2009
The year 1989 saw the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe. In Romania, a bloody revolution toppled dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, ending with his execution. Following these dramatic events, Jeri Little, a young entrepreneur from the white-collar business world of Orange County, California, felt the Lord was calling him to move to Romania to use his business skills in missions. This is Jeri’s amazing account of how the Lord has used Church Resource Ministries to birth a variety of business enterprises in Romania. This revealing narrative is laced with cultural and historical insights as Jeri describes each small step of faith in his journey towards establishing ‘businesses as missions’ in the former Communist bloc. This is a gripping tale of how God has used business in Eastern Europe as a vehicle for reaching people with the good news of Jesus.
