Many people may think of Romania as Christian nation, but the reality is, Romania is officially a secular country. While it’s true that a large segment of the population consider themselves Orthodox, church attendance is reaching record-low levels, and children are at risk of not being introduced to the Gospel.
A large number of Romanian families are also struggling to make ends meet, and oftentimes, fathers from impoverished rural areas leave the country to look for work elsewhere. According to UNICEF, Romanian children without a father figure at home are at a higher risk of dropping out of school and ending up on the streets.
Thankfully, our ministry partners in Eastern Europe work closely with local champions to introduce children to the Good News by providing a safe space for them to connect, play and learn about the Gospel. Oftentimes, these children share the hope of the Gospel with their families.
As summer approaches, we have the opportunity to support local summer Bible camps. The cost to introduce a single child to the Gospel at camp is only $20!
Despite the hardships faced by the children in Eastern Europe, our ministry partners are sharing incredible stories of local champions who are making a difference in children’s lives through the Gospel. These are some of their stories.
They are working tirelessly to make sure Romania's next generation is turning towards God and given access to the Gospel. 2018 summer camps are about to begin. We need your help before June 30th so we can equip these champions with the Biblical resources and the training needed to reach children at camp. Your renewed support of $80 can help four children experience the love of Christ this summer!
At $20 per child, the cost is little, but the transformation these children will experience is of incredible value.
