Bruce Chadborne went on a mission trip to Romania with the Emmanuel Covenant Church of Nashua, NH. The Church was partnering with Gheorghe and Maria Medrea who are based in Arad, Romania. Much of the work of the 2007 Trip revolved around orphaned children and children of poor families including Roma (gypsy) children. One family they assisted had relocated in Chier, Romania from Ukraine. The Team, consisting of several college students and a few native Romanians who served as translators, ran several “VBS” programs for the children in Tamova Zarand, and Secas. The Church undertook a successive trip in August, 2008 and the ICCF provided a donation to the Emmanuel-Maria Foundation to be dispersed during that trip.
