Students provide Scripture for Romanian children

By July 14, 2004

Romania/USA (MNN) — Students send Scriptures to more than 37,000 Romanian children. A collaboration between the Bible League’s “Children Caring for Children” and the Lutheran schools’ annual “Hearts for Jesus” project, has resulted in thousands of students raising more than $75,000 to help send Scriptures to children in Romania.
Through the Lutheran students’ efforts, more than 37,000 Romanian children will receive copies of a hardbound, fully-illustrated Scripture book “Leading LIttle Ones to God.”

Children Caring for Children in Romania was chosen as the 2004 Hearts for Jesus project and is one of a series of classroom missions designed by the Bible League to educate children in the U-S and give them a heart for those children who don’t have God’s Word.

Groups can choose to focus on Africe, China, Colombia, the Philippines, Romania and Russia/Ukraine. Teacher resource guides with information and activities are provided to each participating classroom. Students then learn how children in their chosen areas live, and raise money to send them God’s Word.

While studying Romania, the students earn about how social and cultural problems affect Romanian families. Many church leaders in Romania are not only overwhelmed by the needs but they also lack Scriptures to minister to their children and families.
