We are Lucian and Becca Avadanei, a young couple bent on orphan ministry. We met while both of us were involved in ministry to Romanian children, and decided to team up in our efforts to help orphans and abandoned children discover who they are. Now, we are serving together in Children and Youth Outreach in Romania under the organization My Brother’s Keeper Ministries. Follow us on our blog and learn how you can pray for the children.
Glad to be back in Gârcina weekly. 🥰✨ We arrived in Ro July 10 and glad to be getting back to projects. We will start a theme eventually, but just to get back in the groove in the village we played games & talked about what we can learn from the Apostle Paul and the quality of generosity. 🙏🙌🥰
First time back at the Ion Creanga Orphanage on 16 July Lucian had a pizza party for them! The kids were glad he was back and ready for the weekly program! 🤓📚🥰
A joint VBS for these groups is set for Aug 24-26. 🥳🙏🦩
Was lovely to meet Juanita Byler, Sam & Katrina Peachey (MBK board members), Rufus & Lydia Peachey, Bob Plank & his wife, Steve& Mary and others in State College in April. Thank you for listening to our story! 💕May you always stay close to Jesus! 🥰🥰🙏🙏🙏
Our friend and coworker Melissa Osborne Ghitun and her husband Bogdan are working with Ukrainian refugees at the mission school Kairos, in Suceava Romania, which is close to the border between Romania & Ukraine. They’ve seen over 200 refugees/ day when it all started, now it’s about 40/day. Pray with us for strength for the volunteers, material things will be provided, and peace for those fleeing their homes. Thank you! 🙏🙏🌿💖
We arrived safely in PA March 3rd 3am EST and we’re adjusting to the time change. Everyone is healthy and travel was good. We have some visits with family & friends planned until our departure in July. Also we have secured a vehicle for our stay 🙏🙏 Thank you for your prayers! 🙏🤗
This year in 2022 we are basing our lessons on the Gospel of Matthew. So far at the Ion Creanga Orphanage and in the village of Garcina, we’ve had messages on God’s protection during Herod’s acts of jealousy, on Jesus’ baptism, Jesus’ temptation, and the Beatitudes (Mt 2-5). The kids are really good & listening and answering all the questions really well😊👍 -that’s a bonus!😅🙏 they really like the games we play too; we’ve been having some creative ones!🥳
