Only the Beginning
The team made it back safely. Even though we are all back sleeping in our own beds, getting back into our normal routines, and resuming our everyday lives, a small part of us is still in Romania.
We are proud that the home that we built for Mihai and Mona is a physical reminder of our hard work. We are humbled by the small part we have played in bringing hope to a family and community. As a group, we already shared with each other about the change this experience had made in each one of us. It is a change for the better.
But this is only the beginning. Many of our team members said that this has been a reminder to be more thankful for the many blessings that we have here in Germany. Others said that we must learn to love others and not judge them because of their appearance or circumstances. And some team members are even considering how they can make a difference in their community and other places in the world where the needs are great.
We all have the ability and the power to share what we have to make someone’s life better. We don’t have to wait until we are 30 years old. We don’t have to wait until we have a lot of money. We don’t have to make elaborate plans and involve a lot of people. It can begin tomorrow with a simple act of kindness or a small sacrifice to help someone in our community. As a team we hope this will encourage you and remind all of us that we can make this world a better place. The Oradea Projekt is living proof!
