This IMPACT team will work with Dana and Brandi Bates and VIATA (“Life” in Romanian) Program, a youth ministry sent through Young Life and located in the mountains above the impoverished coal-mining town of Lupeni in Jiu Valley. VIATA serves to help build a sense of community and hope for better life in this economically depressed area, where people seek work, basic needs, and a vision for the future. We will work to support a summer camp for high school and middle school aged children, where they are taught outdoor skills, rock and rope climbing, and Christian values. The team may also partner with Romanian youth in a project to improve their community. For more info on the ministry visit: www.new-horizons.ro

In Ukraine we work with Nita Hanson and God’s Hidden Treasures ministry to encourage them and build relationships with the least and the lost in that community. This organization has been growing in scope and now encompasses wheelchair, orphan, medical, spiritual, village, and outreach ministries. The team will have the opportunity to serve in many of these areas alongside Nita and GHT staff. “Our mission is to serve the needs of the poor, afflicted and the orphaned; and to bring Gods love through personal relationships in the name of Jesus Christ.” For more info on the ministry, visit: http://www.godshiddentreasures.org

The IMPACT team will be working alongside of Orlando and Silvia Japas and the Unión Bíblica Staff and volunteers to share Biblical values with the young people of Honduras. The people of Honduras are living through a time where children are growing up learning from cycles of family disintegration and violence. Unión Bíblica works in public schools teaching children a different way of life based on the gospel message. This year there may also be opportunities to minister alongside Unión Bíblica staff in high schools with their “No Mas Violencia” (No More Violence) program. The team will have opportunities to minister within schools, get to know the local church, and form bonds with inspirational Honduran Christians.
