Members of West Linn Lutheran Church have begun work on building a mission trip to Romania using Thrivent Builds International in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity and Global Village. We have established this as an intergenerational event and the hope is to encourage high school students to join in on this mission. Global Village will host our trip - our identification # is GVT 19618
Dates: July 25 - August 5 or 6, 2018
We have chosen a location for our Thrivent Build/Habitat mission trip to Romania in July/August of 2018. Buftea Romania. We will give you more information about this site as it becomes available. Register for this event by clicking the Register Here button above.
Visiting our Partner in Sacele!
The first part of our trip will connect us with our partners of 15 years in Sacele - with Pastor Lazlo and his community. Those who have currently expressed interest are excited about this component as we seek to further our relationship through face to face, people to people contact.
Poverty housing and substandard living conditions expand beyond the United States. Families and communities across the world experience the hardships of not having a safe, decent place to call home.
From the deserts of Africa to the rain forest of Vietnam, or the mountains of Montana to the tropical beauty of Hawaii in the United States, Thrivent Builds Worldwide can take you on a journey of truly living generously. No special skills are required. All that's needed is a generous heart, a positive spirit and a genuine desire to make a difference.
We see this service project in partnership with our friends in Sacele Romania and Habitat for Humanity as a part of our mission statement to serve all people. In serving all people we feel it is important to meet them where they are and to enter into their story. This cross-cultural, cross-religious connection serves to further our deeper connection as fellow human beings.
