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. He and his family arrived in Iasi in 1993 to begin the adventure of a lifetime.

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 mission" in the former Communist bloc: earning money locally to fund ministries and plant churches in Romania and in neighboring Moldova. 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.

101 Basic must literature for every Missionary

The book of Jeri Little has been more than very exciting, it was energizing and thrilling on all pages, giving witness of how God deals with His people who have surrendered not only to His calling, but to His leading on an ongoing basis. The theme is to surrender to His leading and Merchant to Romania is truly a great example to the answering of His leading and to the Power of the living God.

Through his narrative, Jeri is an immense witness and motivator. As I am about to finish my book BREAKTHROUGH, Merchant to Romania challenges me to God’s calling, leading, listening and following.

Merchant to Romania should be mandatory reading for all who are in the mission’s field, or who seriously plan to walk on the narrow path forward. It is a book of timeless and historical quality, glorifying our Lord and God. Thank you, Jeri.
