NUMBER OF SPACES OPEN
Coronavirus Update: this trip was originally schedule for June/July. Because of all the travel and event restrictions due to COVID-19 we have tentatively rescheduled it for July 18 – August 9. We are in the process of confirming this with everyone involved. Check back soon for updates. All deposits, payments, and donations are refundable if the trip has to be cancelled because of the coronavirus crisis.
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!
