Are you our new vicar?

Romania Shoeboxes - WE DID IT!

A huge, huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributed in any way to this year’s appeal. We managed a new record – 873 boxes! This is an incredible total, beyond our wildest dreams. Not only are we so grateful for every single box that was filled, but also for the 40+ people who gave up their time to help sort and pack them ready for shipping. They were safely delivered on Monday morning so please pray for a safe and “event-free” journey across Europe to Reghin. Team Romania
