A Christian mission organization is using education funding as a way to get university student into Christian service in eastern Europe. Mission without Borders' Carol Marriott says they're trying to raise the money to send students the university. "The cost of a college education in Romania, for instance is just phenomenal. Right now we're looking at sending 449 U-S dollars to put a child through the University of Romania. What that covers is their tuition, their books, and what the government calls school taxes." Marriott says they're encouraging students to get involved in Christian work. "One of the things we're trying to do is we want to get them to make a commitment to the mission for a certain amount of time. That maybe they'll bring their experiences back and work in some of our field programs." Marriott says the program is a great way to help educate Christians, enabling them to be better leaders in their communities.
