One long cool summer – tramping through Albesti with joy and color

on

Albești Valley seems at first sight a poor, sad and hopeless place; still – at least for a week – it was conquered by joyfull dreams and warm hugs from Romanians, Swedish, Blegium and Dutch people, and, more important, from our Heavenly Father.

That’s because we see Albești Valley as a place where God will bless people, children and families.

These sweet drops might be too small to take away the bitternes of the lives Albești poor people, but we believe that God can multiply each little act of love invested in the community …

(Thanks to Lars Bauwens from the Belgium team for all these beautiful pictures!)
