We had a fabulous time at Children’s Camp!!!
We had enough money left over from the youth camp in July, that we were able to make a children’s camp, too! Praise the Lord! It was mostly because not as many orphans were able to come to youth camp this year due to other activities, so we opened youth camp up to paying participants.
Our children’s camp in August was in the town of Rotbav, Brasov county in the middle of Romania in the mountains. We stayed in an old house for 3 days/ 2 nights with 16 kids from Garcina, where we do village work, and we visited some towns in the area. We used a curriculum from Samaritan’s Purse, The Greatest Journey workbooks that we received with some shoebox gifts. In it are 12 lessons, with story, verse to memorize, and activities, and we did the first two. Pray the Lord will continue to speak through the studies as we use them with this group of kids! Thank you!
We also took the kids to visit a fortress and an old town in the area. The fortress was in Rasnov, and the next day we went to the town of Sighisoara to visit. Sighisoara is an old town that was bustling with trading artisians in the 1600s, with historical records dating as far back as 1200s. It was a good chance for these kids to visit these places, because they don’t get to visit many places; even with their school, excursions are rare. They enjoyed seeing the sights in their country!
“Cetatea Rasnov” -the livable fortress. It is a tourist location now, arranged how it
would have been in old times. In Brasov, Romania.
