I cannot believe September is almost over! It has been a full month, as we had lots of activities and events.
First of all, our campus is starting to look more like a playground instead of an construction area! The older kids (including Claudiu -- see next week's post about him!) helped with painting, cleaning and cutting the grass.
Also the school year started! Almost 70 kids from Darius Houses and Arad started the new school year. It was great to see how students reacted seeing old friends and classmates or teachers. We pray that God will watch over the Sunshine School this year, protecting the students and giving wisdom, patience and energy to the teachers!
We had an American team visit us one week this month. Some of them are board members and others were here in Romania for the first time. Together they visited families and RCE projects, participated in building a roof and at one of our community events. It is great to see how God is bringing people to work for His ministry!
The community event the Americans participated in was a dinner for local businessmen. We invited members of the community to come see the ministry and its projects, to meet some of our kids and in the end to be encouraged to help sustain RCE long term. It was a nice to have dinner together and to be able to talk to each other. We hope God will touch hearts and will bring people to support this ministry!
