July 1-12, 2020 VBS Camp Trip to Romania
We are now accepting applications for our July 1-12, 2020 VBS Camp mission trip to serve orphans and at-risk children in Romania.
The team will be taking 40 kids from the Point of Hope Development Center to the Harghita Christian camp in the mountains of Romania. The children will once again be going to Camp Harghita for a week of exploration of their faith. This will be ACF’s 12th year doing a VBS styled experience with children. Being the most established of all the camp experiences, the ACF team will build on these relationships and the budding faith of the children. The team will have the privilege of planting seeds of hope into their lives that will reap a harvest in the whole Roma community. Everyone will have the pleasure of ministering to at-risk children in this serene and peaceful setting in the beautiful Carpathian Mountains.
YOUR TRIP LEADER: Tim Oloffson
Tim is the co-founder and Executive Director of Another Child Foundation. He started as our Executive Director in 2010. Tim is married to Theresa and lives in Wyanet, Illinois. Tim & Theresa have 2 children (Jared & Brittany) who both have traveled with ACF to Romania number of times. Tim has lead nearly 30 teams to Romania over the years. Tim believes that the international mission trip can sometimes be a catalyst in a persons spiritual life. He believes these trips are much like going to the eye doctor. These trips can open your eyes in new ways and you see the world more clearly. You will see the world as Jesus sees the world.
