    History

    Click here for the Church's Romania Newsroom site

    Mischa Markow, a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, arrived in Constanta, Romania, in July 1899. While there, he baptized his Bulgarian missionary companion. Others joined the Church in Bucharest, where a small congregation was organized.

    In 1990 Church leaders met with Romania's ministers of justice, health and religion; the mayor of Bucharest; and members of the Romanian district council. Subsequently, the Church embarked on a project to aid orphanages and provide medical supplies to Romania. Also in 1990, Church leaders reorganized the boundaries of the Church's Austria Vienna East Mission to include Romania. This mission was discontinued in 1992 but missionaries in the Hungary Budapest Mission provided humanitarian services to Romania until the Church formed the Romania Bucharest Mission in July 1993. In July 2000 about 70 young people from 17 Church congregations gathered on a mountaintop overlooking Romanian farmlands as they attended the first youth conference since the organization of the mission.
