11/17/21 Covid Update: Currently Romania is requiring proof of covid vaccination for entry, even though they did not require that during the summer of 2021. Romanians have told us they think that requirement will probably be dropped before next summer, but there’s no guarantee. Romania has changed its covid rules very frequently.
The picturesque side of Romania: a place where cars and horse drawn carts share the same roads, castles form the backdrop for modern cities, and the beautiful countryside is still farmed by hand. The dark side of Romania: aging Communist-era factories, high unemployment, Gypsies treated as the unwanted minority, and abandoned children caught in the human trafficking industry. However, there is a real openness to the Gospel in this country where less than 8% of the population are Protestant Christians. The children especially are quick to respond to God’s love and forgiveness. So, gear up for tons of kids’ programs! From churches, to a Gypsy village, to a camp for poor children, you will have an opportunity to share the Gospel with those who are most willing to hear it!
