Trip to Romania
May 4-12, 2018

The opportunity has come to return to Romania next Spring, May 4-12, 2018.

Miranda and I will be joining a team from our church who will be continuing our work with abandoned babies, gypsy villages and at-risk children in the State Group homes. Many of the LIVADA children that I've been in touch with over the past 7 years have grown up and are now livin gon their own, working or attending school and volunteering their time giving back to the Gypsy cildren what LIVADA has given to them; the love and hope of our Savior Jesus Christ.

I write to you to ask for your support through prayer and/or financial means. Whatever the Lord lays on your heart would be a precious gift and so appreciated. We will be visiting with abandoned babies that are left in the local hospital by their parents. Some return home, some stay at the hospital and some are placed in Livada's care at their group home Casa Juliana, where they receive the love and care they need in a Christian environment. These children are in desperate need of hands-on touch. Many spend hours in their cribs, neglected, quickly developing trust issues and falling behind in normal developmental abilities. Livada has a team of volunteers that visit these children on a daily basis to give them the individual care and time that the hospital staff cannot give them. We will be coming alongside them to support and encourage them, as well.
We will return to a few State Group homes where we will get to visit with the children that we met at VBS camp 2 summers ago. Livada has an after school program which provides these kids with meals, education, and most importantly the Gospel of Jesus. These children are orphans who need to know that they are loved by their heavenly Father, even when their earthly parents are not around. They need to know that they have a purpose in life and are not accidents, or mistakes, that they have value and worth. Personally I lvoe to hear their stories and come along side them and pray for them and show them the love they desperately need.

I hope you will partner with Miranda and I and be a blessing to these children as well. We will need to raise upwards of $2,600 for airfare, lodgeing, and supplies for our programs. Should you choose to support us financially, please fill out the attached form and return it to me. Checks can be made out to IBC. Please put my and/or Miranda's name on the memo line.

Thank you and may God continue to bless you throughout the year.

Michelle Wells

Above all, we covet your prayers for travel safety, staying healthy, provision of our supplies, and for God to prepare the hearts of these children so they will be open to hearing the Good News of Jesus.


Proverbs 19:17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
