La Multi Ani! Happy Women’s Day!

Today, March 8 on International Women’s Day, we want to thank all the women who have been, are currently, and in the future will be involved with Firm Foundations Romania!

Following God’s call

Sometimes, right when we think we know exactly where we are supposed to be, God interrupts our plans to show us something else. And sometimes, He might lead us somewhere else for a while in order to remind us of where He wants us to be.

FFR Christmas celebrations in Budila

Thank you to everyone who helped make Christmas extra special for these precious kids and young moms!

“Joy, Joy, Joy Down in our Hearts” for our Graduates!

The end of the school year is an exciting time with our annual graduation ceremony! The After School Program had 130 children graduate into the next school year. Each class, along with the Kid’s Club kids and the Teen Mums, performed a song or a skit. What a wonderful year for our students and teachers. Congratulations to each and every one of you. We sing proudly that we have the “joy, joy, joy, joy down in our hearts!”

Preschool Joys!

This past Tuesday our Schoolhouse in Budila opened up again to start a new school year for our Kids Club children. Kids Club is a preschool-type program for kids between the ages of 4-6, teaching them Bible stories, manners, hygiene lessons, and of course giving them time to play and have fun. Eight kids attended this first time, regardless of it being rainy and cold outside, and the program started! We are happy to say that new kids have joined the group and Silvana Hagiu, who is also the ASP manager, is now leading Kids Club with the returning help of Steffi and Katie.
It was wonderful to start again and the kids were excited to play, sing, practice their new Bible verses and listen to the story. Please keep this project in your prayers. Pray for the current and future children, that the right ones will join the program and their hearts will be touched, and for the team running the program.


We Are Thankful…

Today we are thankful for the hearts of people who give when there is a need. Two of our Kids Club families and two of our After School Program families have received new sobas this winter!

Kids Club Pizza Party!

Last week we embarked on a new experiment for our Kids Club children. What is more than normal for any other child was a first time experience for all the children in the program…not a single child in Kids Club has ever eaten pizza before in their lives!

New Kids On The Block

Last week, we introduced you to our teens. This week we’re giving you a glimpse of Kid’s Club! Seeing their faces light up when we pull up to the schoolhouse, when they learn a new song, or when they get to play with a plethora of toys is such a joy. There are some familiar faces and some new ones, but either way we feel so blessed to have a group of kids that are excited to come learn about Jesus and sing His praises!

Idaho Visits Romania

FFR is so thankful to the team from Calvary Chapel Treasure Valley for all of the time they spent working with us in our different projects!

The team began their week by running a VBS for almost 40 of our 1st – 4th grade kids! They sang songs, taught Bible lessons, played games, face painted and did crafts with the kids. Everyone had a great time!

Then the men of the team worked together to lay some cement on the outside of a home in the Roma village where we work. The foundation of the home was dirt and rats were digging their way into the home and biting the kids at night. The family had already poured cement on the inside of the home but did not have enough materials to finish the job. FFR was able to purchase the remaining materials and this amazing group of men helped to pour cement on the outside of the home to be sure that the kids would be safe.

The next day the men helped with painting an apartment and putting beds together to get ready for our first set of FFR Interns who will be arriving in August!

While the men were hard at work, the ladies in the group volunteered their time holding babies and playing with the kids in our Hospital Program.

We were so blessed that the team took time out of the other ministry work they were doing in Romania to work with us! And we thank Nicu and Silvana Hagiu for connecting us and setting everything up!
