Mihai and Carmen Bocsa have been placing abandoned children in Christian families for two-decades. Join us to celebrate the over 100 orphans restored to families through their good and faithful efforts.
Rev. Ioan Balog is the Baptist Pastor of several village churches in Romania. Nicoleta is a teacher. God blessed them with three children, Bianca (23), Andrei (20) and Beni (14), before they adopted Darius (6) and Claudiu (5).
Darius was abandoned in a dirty stairway of a block of flats. He was 18 months old. Claudiu was abandoned at birth and never saw his mother again. The boys met in Darius House. Then, by God’s grace, the Balog family answered the call of God to ‘care for the orphan’ and took both boys into their family. Darius speaks for Claudiu, who is non-verbal, and he introduced them in their new environment as ‘Me & Him’ (YoYo & Bob). The nicknames stuck and today the boys not only have new lives but new names that speak not of abandonment and loss but of love and hope. You will be blessed to meet YoYo and Bob and hear their story of Amazing Grace.
