RHCC Moldova Trip #1: Risipeni

June 21 - June 28

What is the work we will do?

On this trip we will do a week-long summer camp in the small village of Risipeni. There is a shelter in this village that houses orphans that were displaced due to the closing of the Falesti Orphanage. This is a rural and poor village with many vulnerable kids.  We will have Bible study groups, music time, arts and crafts, and recreation. There will also be large group worship. These kids are truly precious and will steal your heart as you pour into their lives.
 
What will our schedule look like?
Each day consists of breakfast & devotional time at the Team House, where we stay in the larger city of Balti. We then travel to the community center in Risipeni where we spend the day with the kids doing camp activities. Dinner is back in Balti as a team.

There will also be opportunities to debrief with the team about experiences and see some sights in the capital city of Chisinau.

Prep for Trip

The team will have several meetings that will include prayer, country/culture overview information, travel prep, team building opportunities, in-country activity planning and our own mental/spiritual preparation for a trip like this. Attendance at the meetings is strongly encouraged for the greatest benefit of the team member and the team.  There will be a debrief meeting when we return to the states.

When are team meetings?
