I volunteered over the past year at an institution for children with severe disabilities. Each day I had the privilege to spend time with the children who live there and the staff. I was able to get to know the children’s individual personalities, and the specific activities that each of them enjoyed.
So I said ‘yes’. And then I panicked. What had I got myself in for? Running a summer camp in a village? I didn’t even speak Romanian! What was I thinking? I was no dance, music or art expert and I had never ventured into village life since moving to Romania.

Melanie Gray, a returning volunteer at Firm Foundations Romania, invited Sarah Vienna to speak and sing at her church’s Women’s Breakfast. Sarah had the opportunity to share her testimony of how she followed God’s calling which led her to Romania. The event was meant to inspire and affirm the women in England to follow God’s calling.

We increased our After School Program team to four Romanian teachers and now have 130 children being helped. The Kid’s Club continues to grow with up to 13 children coming.
