Born in Boston and raised in Northern California, I am a musician with a humanitarian focus. As a Romanian resident (not a citizen), I can proudly say this country has become my home away from home due to the beauty of the country and the apparent need to assist the widow and orphan.
In 2001 I attended a school called Youth With a Mission (YWAM), a six month training where you learn more about God and missions before going on an outreach. During this time, I was introduced to a whole new world of missions. YWAM led me to Romania, which became my boot camp to develop my relationship with Jesus Christ and to train me as a leader.
God brought mentors into my life every step of the way over the past twelve years. FFR has become like a child of mine. I could never fully leave Romania as this country has become my home, my identity, and my family. The distinction of FFR from other organizations is that we lead with love. Every child we touch becomes family, and every volunteer that joins our team we embrace no matter what religion or personality. We are leaders with passion, heart, courage, and unity.
My message that I would want to leave is that you only need Jesus Christ’s approval in your life. I want people to be inspired, encouraged, and intrigued by the unique call that Jesus has for each person. I want people to feel motivated to step out of their box to do something they thought they never could do. I want people to be left thinking that God is doing amazing things through Firm Foundations Romania. For more information follow my blog at www.sarahvienna.com
