Salvation is the Mission

          "For so the Lord has commanded us, saying, “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”" -Acts 13:47

          When I was looking at mission trips, I hadn't ever thought that God would have me travel almost half way around the world to serve him. I thought maybe some place closer, that didn't involve flying over an ocean. Yet here I am, writing this letter to tell you about the amazing opportunity I have to serve the Lord in Romania this summer.

          I'm going to be serving with the Global Encounters 2015 Romania team, the trip will be a duration of three weeks, June 19th – July 11th. I am looking forward to getting to share about God's love and grace to the Romanians, as well as the spiritual growth that God will be doing in me.

          Here's a glimpse of what I will be doing the three weeks in Romania:

Week One: church-based VBS in the mornings and schools in the afternoons.
Week Two: outdoor VBS in a Gypsy village. Lots of unsaved kids attend!
Week three: working as activities directors for a camp for poor kids. So much time for relationship-building with kids who need love!

          By now you're probably thinking, “Wow. That sound awesome!” You too can help share a part in this amazing opportunity! I need prayer and financial support. In order for me to get there and back in one piece I need about $3,500 (by May 1st) and lots of prayer! 

          If God is leading you to help financially, Go to this page, fill out the form and select that you would like to assist “Barclay, Deanna”.

          I'm so excited for this journey that God is leading me on. 
          God bless you all!
