A Merry Ending to 2015!


2015 ended with a Merry Christmas Celebration to more than 1,000 children and staff in 9 different Placement Center’s (orphanages), and Families in Need Food Distribution to 120 families in 2 impoverished villages, and an additional 108 gifts to children in Village Bible Club Ministry. All of the Gift of Hope gifts and food was provided by our American Home Team at our 2 annual fundraisers and with December giving ~ we are so very grateful for your generosity which blessed so many!

For the first time, Romanian Dental University students volunteered to deliver the gifts and food. For nearly all, it was their first time to visit a Placement Center ~ “I just didn’t know there were so many orphanages”, “I think we are helping the ones in need but also ourselves, our soul”, “The children were so happy to see us and the gifts from Heart of Hope, anytime I’ll be so glad to help”, “The people were so grateful for the food, this has already made my Christmas”. Though the students could not participate financially, so many seeds of service were planted!

Pray ~ Provide ~ Participate in a New Year of Hope in 2016!



The Mission of Heart of Hope is to embrace orphans, widows, children and families in desperate need with the love of Christ, ease suffering and restore hope.

At this reflective time of year, the year ahead seems full of possibility! The majority of days for most of us will be un-remarkable; filled with work, tasks, and commitments with only a few extraordinary days (both good and difficult) sprinkled in between. For the children and families we minister to the majority of their days as well are un-remarkable – except that their extraordinary days are usually extraordinarily difficult, filled with a myriad of difficulties – from loneliness, painful memories, depression, uncertainty, marginalization, embarrassment, insecurity, physical suffering and often hopelessness.

For Heart of Hope and the ministry entrusted to us, 2016 will be yet another opportunity to intentionally fulfill our mission listed above.

Won’t you join us in one or all three ways?!
