The children in the villages of Piscu-Sadovei and Horezu-Poienari were thrilled that Mission To Serve was there again to have Vacation Bible School with them this year.  This is a special treat for the poor village children and a wonderful opportunity to tell them about the love of Jesus Christ. 

In June 2008, we had another small team of ladies from Colorado who conducted the Bible schools.  Gloria Newman and her team from Colorado did a wonderful job.  This year, Gloria brought the JESUS film in the Romanian language and that was shown more than once to the churches in Piscu Sadovei and Horezu Poienari.  After viewing it the first time, people wanted it shown again so they could invite others.  It was the first time any of the villagers had seen something like this.

We were also happy to have one of our Board members, Pete Fields, from Kentucky with us during the month of June 2008.  Pete has made many trips to Romania and preaches in many churches, teaches classes for pastors, assist in the distribution of aid to poor families and fills in where ever we need him.  Below is a picture of Pete giving gift bags to some of our village youth.

                                        SUMMER CAMP
 
Many lives were changed at the summer camp we held at the Danube River in the forest that divides Romania from Bulgaria.  For all the children from Horezu, this was the first time they had done something like this.  Most of the children were from very, very poor gypsy families who work as brick makers.  The thing they liked the most was the three meals a day plus snacks.  In their homes, they feel blessed if they have food to eat once a day.  It was a joy to see some of the teenage boys really begin to understand the gospel and express a desire to follow Jesus.  Now we need sponsors for some of these children so that we can provide food to them each month, along with clothes, shoes and school supplies.
 
I want to thank each one who has been so faithful to help uphold this work with your prayers and finances.  Without you, it would not be possible to do the ministry because it is so extensive.  We thank the Lord for blessing us with strength to accomplish His will as we visited the villages and had the VBS and summer camp to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
 
GOD BLESS YOU AND BE WITH YOU AS YOU LABOR IN HIS KINGDOM!!
