Team will work in small villages and towns in the most Gospel-Needy area of Romania. In the mornings we will be giving out food bags to designated poor families and widows, fitting folks with reading glasses, Bible distribution, and minor medical and medicine distribution. We believe good deeds create good will which create good opportunities to share the Good News. Afternoons we will be doing children’s VBS in churches, homes, and parks. Some of this work with kids can be done in English, although we provide translators for our teams. Children are out of school this week. In the evenings we will hold evangelistic meetings in village houses or small churches.
Housing is in a clean, comfortable hotel and meals are great. You will probably gain weight! Romanians LOVE Americans. We provide translators to help us.
Who? We need those who can work with children, preach, teach, give testimony, sing and play instruments,
fit eye glasses, distribute medicines to the poor, and hand out bags of food to very poor families and widows.
We really need some medical folks. Doctor, nurse, pharmacist, eye care professional, dentist. These social
ministries open the door for sharing the Gospel and church planting in some very Gospel-Needy areas.
Compare this Gospel-dark area in Romania that receives almost no mission assistance to areas of Central
America like Guatemala (98% Christian according to Operation World) that are overrun with short-term

How much? Cost is $2,095 from East Coast USA – all inclusive. Price may be more from Central US,
West Coast, and Alaska due to airfare. Cut us a little slack on cost, because airfares are pretty hard
to estimate this far out. Flights will go into Bucharest, Romania.
OPTIONAL SIGHTSEE EXTENSION.
November 2-5 JERUSALEM "PEOPLE'S PILGRIMAGE" is a BUDGET Trip for $750. Yes, $750!!! You
will never again be able to go to the Holy Land for this price. Most Holy Land trips are $3,000- $5,000.
Includes airfare to Israel from Romania, extra cost of airfare to fly home from Tel Aviv, 3 days and 3 nights
in Jerusalem including hotel 8 minute walking distance to the Old City, breakfast, lunch and dinner each day,
and roundtrip transport from Tel Aviv airport to Jerusalem hotel. Included also are two guided half day
walking tours (by me!) which will include the Wailing Wall, Garden of Gethsemene & Mt of Olives,
Damascus Gate, Garden Tomb, Old City shops, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Tower of David, City of David,
Pool of Siloame, Pool of Bethesda, St Anne Church, and more. All entry fees included. You will have time
for some additional time for shopping and exploration on your own.
Disclaimers. You will need to come to Israel with one checked bag, and one carryon. Other groups usually
tour the entire Holy Land. We ONLY visit Jerusalem. Hotel will be 3 star – NOT 5 star. Clean but very basic with
two to a room and a great breakfast. If you want to be pampered, pay the big bucks and go with the
Professional Tour group companies. Meals will be outstanding. Tour will be walking. Hear me!!! LOTS and lots
of WALKING. Jerusalem is on a mountain. If you can’t walk 5-8 miles a day with hills, steps, stairs and
sometimes uneven paved rock surfaces, then this trip is NOT for you. Please do not sign up.
Summary Costs and Dates. You serve in Romania October 25-Nov 2. Then you go to Jerusalem November 2-5 and fly home to USA on November 5. Total cost is $2095 Romania ONLY. $750 more if you choose to go to Jerusalem = TOTAL COST for both is $2,845
Since 1991, I have led more than 150 trips to Romania involving over 3,000 people. Nobody has more experience leading groups into Romania. I promise you an excellent project that is well-organized. We will EXCEED your expectations.
What next? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 907-440-4974 and tell me of your interest. Or fill out the form below and send it. I'll send you an application. Return the completed application with $50 deposit. Your first major payment is due Aug 1, 2020 for $1,000. Trip cost goes up $200 if Aug 1 payment date is not met. This is because airfares tend to go up after early August. The balance is due October 1. My book, Equipped for Adventure, has a chapter on "Funding your Trip" that will help you raising the funds. (although the tourist portion of the trip should not be paid for with raised funds). It can be ordered at www.wmustore.com or www.amazon.com
