Romania

Biography

I have been involved in mission trips to Romania since 2001 when three of us made our first trip to Sardu near Cluj Napoca in the north of Romania. Now, the Corabia Foundation has been established and groups from all over Britain and, more recently, America visit on a regular basis to support the work with children and young people and within the Roma community.

I am from Bradford, West Yorkshire, and have attended the Elim Church there for the last 30 years where I have always been involved in the children`s and youth work. I have three grown up children who all still live in Yorkshire but who have made the trip to Romania on many occasions.

I trained as a nursery practitioner and later as an early years and primary school teacher. I have most recently gained qualifications in leading children and family centres. I am keen to use the qualifications and experience I have gained to serve God here in Sardu and the surrounding area.

House of Hope Children and Youth Clubs

Elim Missionaries Bob and Edith McDonald run children’s and youth clubs at Casa Sperantei - meaning House of Hope that was designed to accommodate such meetings. However, by the Spring of 2009 the number of children and teens was too great to be accommodated in the house so the construction of a family centre was commenced in March 2009.

Currently five clubs from five villages use the new centre every week with the McDonalds providing transport via two minibuses.

Three English classes are held each week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.

Each Wednesday evening an all-age club is held; Thursday evenings music and puppet workshops; Friday evenings teens' club. On non-organised evenings the centre is open for recreation and fellowship. An average of 200 children/teens use the centre weekly.
