Romania

Love in Action Ministries had the privilege of traveling to Romania in the Autumn of 2012 at the request of our international ministry partners. Travel to impoverished countries such as Romania always manages to put things in perspective for us as Americans and Westerners. For all of the economic anxieties that pervade our culture, it is crucial to maintain an attitude of gratefulness and to resist taking for granted the many blessings that are bestowed upon us. Being in such an advantaged position, Christ compels us to extend our love, resources, and faith to all of His children who are lacking — not just locally, but globally as well.
