Missions Monday. Afterschool Care in Romania

Teacher's Statement from Mission WIthout Borders on Vimeo.

I have been promoting the #GiveABackpack appeal on Facebook, Twitter, and this blog and want to share a view of the bigger picture this week.  It's NOT just giving a backpack to a needy child once a year.  Mission Without Borders is there year round working with local churches sharing a holistic gospel.  Many churches are providing hot meals after school, a safe place to do their homework, encouragement and tutoring.  Sharing Christ and lifting people out of poverty are both a process.  Both take time, a lot of love and encouragement,  and providing the tools for growth ( a Bible, Bible classes, a hot meal, tutoring, job skills, school supplies)
"Their homework improved, they were better prepared...the change was obvious.  We saw it clearly"- principal from a Romanian school where students received backpacks

You can tell from the video that the backpacks and encouragement really does make an impact in the lives of these children.  Won't you consider how you can help in this appeal?  Each backpack filled with supplies costs around $25  I have set up a GoFundMe page where you can donate and every donation will be MATCHED.  This is an easy way to maximize your giving to this great cause.  I have also started a giveaway where YOU can win a $50 Walmart gift card for your own school supplies.  By sharing this important work, you can earn entries every day!

If you want you can also donate directly to Mission Without Borders.  Whatever you choose to do- whether giving or sharing this appeal- please know that it will positively impact the life of a needy child.  Thank you!
