Camp of the Good Shepherd provided a Christian camping experience to just over 400 children this summer. The children came from 7 different Placement Centers and 4 impoverished villages. The love of Christ was lavished upon these deserving children by Romanian and American volunteers committed to loving ‘the least of these’

Heart of Hope volunteers meet so many different needs to so many children at Camp of the Good Shepherd. The encompassing message is the eternal life and love found only in Jesus Christ to walk through this life’s joys and darkest moments and into eternity. We thank our ‘home team’ that provided so many sponsorships for children in need to hear the gospel and have hope restored.

Suffering Eased!

Summer saw two compassionate, professional teams come to use their skills to help children in the Placement Centers!

The Aadland Dental Team served one week in partnership with the Dental University of Sibiu.

Dr. Kristine Aadland, Dr. Dan Wilson, and assistant Elana Nagy provided healing to 55 children from 2 different centers and mentoring to a dozen dental students. Their compassion and dental treatment to the children and patience in teaching techniques and skills to the students was a blessing to all!

July saw the arrival of the second Pediatric Therapy Team this year. This 6 person team was from Florida and provided an amazing amount of treatment to children at 2 different Placement Centers. The team consisted of physical, occupational, and speech therapists. They persevered under challenging circumstances to bring comfort and treatment to children classified as ‘mild to moderately handicapped’ and children classified as ‘moderately to severely handicapped’. They were assisted by Romanian medical and psychology students who gained critical experience and practical mentoring from this wonderful team of therapists. The team expressed in words their life changing experience by serving with us in Romania ~ and the children expressed in smiles their life changing experience with this team!
