December 1999… Christmas trip to Romania with Remember-the-Children… the beginning of a new chapter of my life that would grow to include some of the most amazing people I will ever meet.
From that first mission trip, my love for the children and house parents of Caminul Felix has grown into relationships that will last a lifetime. I was amazed at how the house parents gave up the life they had to live at Caminul Felix and become parents to numerous children that needed them… needed their love… needed their guidance. God is the foundation of Caminul Felix and the families there. Through the love and teachings of the parents and the church, the children learn about God and His love for them.
As I continued to go on mission trips there, I watched those children grow into teenagers and now they are grown, some are married and having children of their own. My own life has been tranformed because of my experiences at Caminul Felix and through the love I’ve received from those there that have become my ‘family’.
