Children’s Day 2019

We had the privilege of sharing the message “You are Special” by Max Lucado with 60 kids for Children’s Day June 1 this year.

Children present were from the Ion Creanga Orphanage, Elena Doamna Orphanage, village of Garcina, and our city.

We had games, songs, skit “Your Are Special” with leaders, pizza, cake, and a fun talent show!

We are thankful we could have this type of activity with the kids we work with , at our church Biserica Crestina Baptista in Piatra Neamt. Thankful also for the volunteers of youth from our church. 🙏

Anniversary Celebration in the village

Sunday May 12 was a celebration for 10 years since the inauguration of the village church in Garcina. We were happy to have Eduard Teodorescu’s choir from Ploiesti visit for the occasion and praise the Lord together with the church! ⛪️🙏😇
There were a number of children from our children’s program who came & their parents. We ask God to bless them. 🙏

Sponsor a Child for CAMP!

We love being able to take children and youth from our town and surrounding area to camp in the summer!! It’s a great way to jump start them in their faith and relationship to God and others. This year we are having a Youth Camp August 26- 31, 2019 in the beautiful mountains of Voronet, Romania, theme is yet to be decided. We hope to be able to take 65 participants along with 20 leaders from our home church, Biserica Baptista Piatra Neamt. The fundraising for the entire week is supported by us through My Brother’s Keeper, as our church doesn’t have enough funds to be able to offer scholarships. Each year, there are a number of teens from Casa Ray Orphanage, from villages in our area, and from another orphanage in Piatra Neamt, Santa Maria, to whom we offer scholarships to so they can come and enjoy with us!

If you would like to get involved, we are accepting donations of $120 per camper until Aug 1 to be sent to:

My Brother’s Keeper PO Box 11 Roxbury, PA 17251

Please write “Avadanei camp 2019″ on memo line.

God bless you for your involvement!!!

One camper’s reply when asked what he likes about coming to our camp, ” I like this camp very much because it is a Christian Camp and we can find out more about God!”

Children’s clubs for 2019

We’ve been doing our kids clubs weekly since January after Christmas break ended, in the village of Gârcina Fridays and the State Orphanage Ion Creanga Saturdays.

In the village we are learning from a Youth Alpha course, and the kids like the videos. It’s on the basics of Christianity. They have been answering the questions and we have a discussion afterwards. Last Friday’s lesson was on getting lost, and was helpful to have a discussion on that. In the orphanage we are using ”The Greatest Journey” workbooks by the Samaritan’s Purse and we have 15-20 kids who come regularly. The study is on the basics of Christianity and also has some lessons on Zaccheus, Goliath, and the apostles.

Please be praying for Cristina, a girl from youth group who has been helping us in these kids clubs. She has a great servant’s heart. Pray she comes to a saving knowledge of the human state and God’s grace, and Jesus’ sacrifice for us.
