Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Romania is our adopted home! We have been traveling to Romania since 1991 when the communist regime was overturned. We did the FIRST Christian Concert in Romania after the revolution. In 2004 my business partner Jerry Rankin and I bought land in Romania and built a Christian camp for the underprivedged kids in the area. We are passionate about the following:
Vio and Estera (means Esther-from the Bible) have been serving children ages 2-21 for 15 years. During the school year they travel 1000's of kilometers each week teaching in the rural kindergartens and doing "GOOD NEWS BIBLE STUDIES" for children in the small villages that make up the the area of Transylvania (yes, Dracula's old stomping grounds). Because Gas is so expensive in Europe, their gas bill is double their salary - over $800 per month just for gas! They recently adopted a child from an orphanage to raise as their own. We purchased some land for them several years ago and built a Christian camp in that area, right next to a Gypsy village.
During the summer, anywhere from 200 - 700 kids attend a week long camp. Those that come are Gypsies, orphans and children through High school age to learn crafts, hygiene, Bible study and of course - Sports. The number of children affected depends solely on the funds raised to do the camps.
They rescue the worst of the worst from state run hospitals and take them home, feed them, educate them (to the best of their abilities) and give them a life undreamed of before. These are the children with Cerebral Palsy, and major mental and physical handicaps that are simply warehoused until they die. They are neglected, in poor health and most were never even held while they were babies. Unless rescued, the girls end up with a worst fate (as you can imagine). Human Trafficing is rampant in Romania, We did a camp for them this year at our camp in Transylvania - WOW!
