KIDS AND TEEN OUTREACH
Two weekly outreaches are held where they have the opportunity to learn about Jesus Christ and to develop a good support group of Christian friends their age.
Numerous camps are held during the summer in the isolated village of LAZ.
Kids, teens and adults are able to get away from all distractions and concentrate on God.
There are over 57,000 children in Romania, living without parents in State institutions. Many grow up dreaming to be accepted and adopted into a family.
We work to encourage Christian families in Romania to adopt. By sharing and making aware this huge problem.
As Christians, we believe it is our duty to look after those in need!
We are the hands and feet of Christ.
God has blessed us with energy, resources and possibilities to reach out and lend a helping hand.
Counseling, standing up for the weak, helping a need, keeping a family together… whatever God opens our eyes to and puts on our heart, as Christians we believe it is our responsibility to take action.
Although many times some things we do may be unseen, God knows and always provides wisdom, resources and ability.
