Our Romania short term trip partners with missionaries Christian and Marie Burtt and Anchor of Hope Ministries in Bucharest Romania. The Burtts are
supported by our church as one of our many full-time missionaries. Their mission is simple—to positively affect the lives of Romanian orphans for Christ,
through love, care, discipleship and mentorship. A simple caring touch can transform the life of an abandoned orphan. Anchor of Hope focuses on providing
vital human contact to dozens of “warehoused” children, along with Christian mentorship for the older children. Christian and Marie have asked their Auburn Grace
Family to send a team to help with a Vacation Bible School at an orphanage nearby. The children at the Robin Hood Orphanage are not allowed to leave the facility to
attend camp, so we will bring the VBS to them. The week will include training and visiting kids in other locations nearby, possibly a baby hospital. Most children are
elementary school age. Your role is interacting with a child. Human touch and kindness transforms, and that is something we all can do!!!
