Romania Outreach Mission News
We were delighted to welcome our visitors from Romania this past September. Our coordinator with World Vision Romania, Ciprian (Cipri) Tehei, his replacement, Cristina Constantinescu and two current high school students were on hand to share the successes of the program, visit local sights and meet with all of the sponsors from the congregation.
The four were introduced during the worship services on September 15 and spoke individually with members in Fellowship Hall. They had memorable local experiences at Red Rocks’ “Worship on the Rocks,” attended the CU/Air Force football game, attended the Colorado Symphony and took a day trip to Breckenridge.
Prior to the visit, nine students were in need of sponsors. Thanks to Rockland’s generosity, this need was met and we can fulfill our commitment to sponsor a total of 45 students for the current school year.
