Craciun Fericit!!

That's Merry Christmas in Romanian, and that is exactly what this team will take to over 300 orphans in Moldova in T minus 26 days. Yes, you heard me correctly...we leave in 26 days! On January 4th, 23 people from Tennessee, Texas, and Oregon will head to Moldova and meet two other teammates who are already working there. Our mission? To share the Hope of salvation that was born in a manger in a tiny little town called Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. Yes, we will bring crafts and games and warm clothing. But more importantly, we bring the one true Love they really need that is powerful enough to heal every scar, fill every lonely place, dry every tear, and bring joy to the most abanodoned child. We covet your prayers for this trip.
