Reaching Romanian Orphans for Christ

I am 21 years old and a student at Moody Bible Institute going for a degree in Children's Ministry. While attending Moody, I learned that the vast majority of a child's social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual development is directly tied to their parents. It was almost immediate. I couldn't stop thinking about all the children in the world who have no parents, and now God has made it into an insatiable desire to take up the cause of the orphan. With my heart burdened for the fatherless, God has been and continues to do amazing things in my life. Most recently, He has blessed me with the opportunity to serve in Romania with Heart To Heart International Ministries as part of my internship requirement for my degree.

Due to a corrupt government and a bad economy, Romania has been left with thousands of abandoned children living in government institutions. Living in these government institutions has left these children unloved and neglected, in need of medical, educational, and spiritual development.

As part of my involvement with H2H International, I will be uniquely ministering to Romanian orphans in all stages of development. Starting at the earliest stage of abandonment, H2H missionaries and teams like the one I will be serving on, care for infants and toddlers abandoned in hospitals throughout Bucharest. As the babies grow into children, H2H is there at several state-operated orphanages, providing tutoring, mentoring, Bible studies, special classes, and one-on-one care and guidance to these precious children.

Please prayerfully consider supporting my internship to reach Romanian orphans for Christ. This is an amazing opportunity to not only make a difference in the life of an abandoned child, but also in mine"”I have no doubt in my mind that this internship will change my life forever. I have never been overseas and being able to serve orphans in this way will be the culminating experience of all that I have praying about and working so hard for in college.

1)  Pray for God's provision. Pray for me and my time with the ministry. Pray against Satan's attacks Pray for open doors and open hearts. Pray for boldness in witness. Pray for times of rest and refreshment. Pray for good health. Pray for the unity of the team. Pray for God's guidance in all decisions. Pray for faithfulness in prayer and reliance on God.

2)  Share this information with everyone you know! God could put it on anyone's heart to support me in my internship. Please consider giving others who may not even know me a chance to be a part of God's ministry to orphans in Romania.

3)  Give financial support for the expenses of my internship. At the present moment, this is my most urgent need. Because I applied to the internship later than most, I am to raise my support in less than half the normal amount of time. I pray that the entire cost will be covered by the end of May.

However you feel led to support me, I cannot thank you enough! May God bless you all!
