Calvary Fellowship Church is returning to the Transnistria region in Moldova from October 4th – 13th, 2019 and will partner with local missionaries to encourage and share the Gospel with orphans and young adults. This year, the team will conduct a VBS at the Popenki Orphanage as well as host an event for Christian families who have adopted children out of local orphanages. We will also hold a number of events for young adults who are part of a Christian mentoring program. As you can imagine, orphaned children in Transnistria have few options as they grow and enter adulthood. Our partnership with local orphanages and Christian organizations offers hope and opportunity to these young boys and girls.
Calvary Fellowship Church has enjoyed a partnership with the Transnistria region of Moldova in Eastern Europe over the past seventeen years. Transnistria was part of the Soviet Union and the people there have been ravaged by economic and political sanctions, which have left the church and the people of this region with few partners and resources. Past trips have focused on encouraging our brothers and sisters in Christ, who have struggled since the break-up of the Soviet Union.
Our goal is to be salt and light in the name of Jesus Christ and to help some of these forgotten orphans and fellow believers to realize that God has not forgotten about them and they are important to Him. We want to continue to build lasting relationships with Transnistria orphanages by running a VBS, interacting with the children and staff and supporting the evangelistic efforts of local church workers.
Our team will also attend local churches and visit with some of the children who are part of the Help The Children Ministry, which focuses on placing orphans into Christian homes and educating teenagers who are aging out of orphanages on how to care and provide for themselves. Team members will also have an opportunity to participate in English Clubs, an outreach for young adults, organized by the local churches.
We ask that you would keep our team and the children of Transnistria in your prayers as we raise the $10,000 needed to support our projects. If you are able to give, please fill in the Donation section below. Please add "Transnistria" and the name of the team member you are supporting in the gift notes field.
Thank you for being a blessing to the team and to the children and adults we are going to serve.
