Graeme and Bequi serve at Oastea Domnului, an evangelical church in Chişinău, the capital city of Moldova.
Most of the Moldovan population regard themselves as Orthodox Christians and are largely unaware of the true gospel message. There has been significant gospel growth in recent years and Oastea Domnului is a church family made up of born-again Orthodox believers.
Graeme and Bequi are passionate about equipping and discipling believers to be those who can rightly handle the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). Graeme’s role involves preaching, leading bible studies, leading one-to-ones and evangelistic outreach. Bequi's primary ministry is to support Graeme and look after their three children, Iona, Joshua and Ella. She is also involved with evangelism and discipleship among women and children.

7 March marked a year since the first person in Moldova was officially diagnosed with coronavirus. A year may have passed but, unlike many countries in the West who are seeing ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, the situation here remains pretty bleak.
In recent weeks, Moldova has seen its highest levels of COVID infections and death rates since the pandemic began, mainly due to the highly infectious British variant being here. In February, many of our church family got ill in quick succession and we had to stop church meetings in person for a while. Thankfully all made a recovery but there are only a few of us now who haven’t had COVID symptoms. Meaningful and impactful government restrictions are still few and far between. The availability of vaccinations for such a poor country also remains low as we rely on generous neighbours such as Romania to donate any surplus stock. In fact, a recent report said that if Moldova continues vaccinating its population at the current rate, it will take until 2029 for 70% of the adult population to be vaccinated!
