Un-finished plates are purchased from the manufacturer and the team decorate them as well as making other fancy things before going onto the streets to sell them.

Traian and some members of the team were invited to Constanta by a church for outreach ministry at the end of May.
They visited several schools and orphanages as well as Open Airs on the beach and in parks.
We will return in 2007. If you are interested and would like to join us e-mail Paul Wakefield for details. (Address at bottom of Intro. page)

The ministry in the schools through the puppets remains very popular. In 2006 demand was greater than supply, there is not enough time and person power to visit all the schools that would like a visit. A puppet play is presented containing the full gospel message and re-inforced by Traian and Corina talking to the children and singing. Tricks and memory verses can also be added to the programme. Please pray for more full time workers.

During 2006 the three childrens clubs continued to grow averaging 45 children per club. The programme is lively and varied and enables the children to develop a relationship with God. The clubs are held on a Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings in the Baptist and Pentecostal Churches in Alba Iulia and in the village of Sintimbru in a church planted by The River of Life church. A high percentage of the children are from non-christian families. We thank the Churches for their support and use of their buildings.

Again this year we had two childrens camps and a teenage camp for those who are more mature. The two childrens camps were very well attendned and full sponsorship for the camps was raised. A varied programme was very well presented by the team. Help with the craft came from England. People committed their lives to the Lord, renewed their relationship with God and asked for foregivness for their sins.

The teenage camp was a huge success. For the first time this year we had enough people to make a seperate camp for teenagers. The contents of the programme were the same but the applications were different.

A few weeks after the camps we organised a praise party to gather all the children and teens together and re-inforce the messages of the camps. The River of Life church building was seized and the chairs rearranged. We bused the audience in and a terrific time was had by all.
