Top Business as Mission Company's Story comes to Book - Merchant to Romania

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 missions' 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.

Several times we've featured Jeri's businesses, including Little Texas on the website. You can find out more about the book and order a copy at http://www.merchanttoromania.com/

I had the privilege of meeting Jeri at Little Texas in Iasi Romania. I was there to ask him some questions about being salt and light in Romania. I appreciated his candor and hospitality. His business there is great and he has brought something uplifting to the area that I could see on the faces of his employees. Congratulations, Jeri!
