The May team jumped right into action after arriving in Romania early on Tuesday, May 10.
Here are some quick updates from trip leader, Mike.
Tuesday: Flights were smooth, connections were great, the weather is beautiful and we just had a wonderful meal prepared by our hosts. This afternoon we are off to visit a group home in Gherla, a small town about 40 minutes from Cluj.
Wednesday: We spent the morning in orientation and program preparations before heading back to Gherla where we met a number of the younger kids who will attend the upcoming weekend mini-camp. Our team did a little presentation for them and then we walked to a nearby park for some games. Everyone had a good day.
Thursday: We divided up into two groups and went to two different schools in the city to do crafts and Canadian presentations. This afternoon was spent with children and teenagers from an orphanage in Cluj. We decorated cupcakes and delivered them to a couple of group homes in the area.
Friday: we head to our first mini-camp weekend retreat.
Let’s continue to remember this team in our prayers as they work alongside of our Pas Cu Pas staff and volunteers, reaching out to so many Romanian children and youth in need.
PS — A big “happy birthday” to twin team members Alex & Max!! We hope being in Romania with old & news friends was a pretty special, memorable way to celebrate.
