I’ll never forget the time when I first heard about Romania. It was in the late 80’s and I was around 8 years old. A lady came to visit our church and share her story about being a missionary in Romania. She told us about the thousands of babies and children that were being abandoned and then placed in horrific conditions in children’s homes. The disturbing photographs and videos of these neglected babies will stay with me forever.
It has been almost 30 years since the first exposure of these Romanian children homes, but a report by the BBC News, says that these neglected children, who are now adults, are still suffering. Many of these neglected orphans are homeless and living in underground slums and sewers, hooked on synthetic drugs known as ‘spice’ or ‘magic’.
It is safe to say that there is still a great need in Romania and Romanian Christian Enterprise (RCC) are fully aware of the damage that was done all these years ago.
Rachael, my friend from Faithful Mommy blog, is currently serving the Lord on a mission trip in Romania. I was able to chat with Rachael on the phone last night and she explained to me that the majority of Romanian’s are Orthodox Christians. Rachael and the team are forbidden to speak about being filled with the Holy Spirit or being ‘born again’.
Please uphold Rachael in prayer as she takes the gospel and love of Jesus to the broken people of Romania. Pray also for a move of the Holy Spirit and divine opportunities for Rachael to share the things of God both openly and freely.
