Aaron & Ana Stafford

Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Aaron was born and raised in Northern California. At 23, he encountered a father’s love for the first time in his life as God began to fill the empty places of his heart. Aaron is passionate about worship, evangelism, and leading people into the healing presence of Jesus. 

Ana was born and raised in the heart of Romania under one of the world’s harshest communist regimes. Her family smuggled Bibles into their home and faced strong persecution for their faith until December of 1989 when communism fell. She was then 16 years old. Her entire life has been about loving Jesus and leading people into His presence. 

In 2002, God brought us together from opposite sides of the world to a Youth With a Mission (YWAM) School in Chico, CA. A couple of months after the school was complete, Aaron got his first plane ticket to Romania and fell in love not only with Ana but also with Romania. In March of 2003, we said our “I do's!” and began working together with YWAM Cluj-Napoca, Romania. 

Through the gift of adoption, God gave us two amazing children. Emma, whom we adopted in Romania in 2007, is a worshiper and an influencer. Together with a friend, she started the “Let’s be Real” podcast in order to bring the Kingdom to their generation. In 2020, God blessed us with Josiah. He is all cuteness and the answer to many years of prayer!

After serving with YWAM in Romania for 15 years, the Lord called us to Bethel to attend BSSM and learn how to bring revival back to Romania. After 5 years in Redding, we moved back to Romania in January of 2021.  

Our vision is to see revival break out in families and to raise up revivalists that bring revival fire into every area of society. We want to see men, women, and children passionately pursuing their full potential in Christ, husbands and wives committed to loving and raising powerful children, orphans becoming sons and daughters, and strong marriages and families equipped and empowered to bring the Kingdom of heaven to earth!
