Romania Bucharest Mission Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Twenty years is a short period in the long history of the country of Romania, but for Romanian Latter-day Saints, two decades is enough time to completely change their lives. On July 12, some of those members joined about 300 returned missionaries in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Romania Bucharest Mission. A similar gathering occurred on July 13 in Romania.

The Romania Bucharest Mission was formed in July 1993 with John R. Morrey as the first mission president. Prior to that time, Romania was part of the Vienna East and Hungary Budapest Missions. In 1997 the mission boundaries expanded to include the country of Moldova and in 2012 the name of the mission was changed to the Romania Moldova Mission.
