Every summer more than 200 international participants visit Moldova for our “Love Moldova” programme. Over a two-month period of the summer, we offer a variety of exciting options for two-week outreaches in Moldovan villages. Teams come alongside local churches as they run children’s programs, sports camps or construction projects, sometimes staying in one village, sometimes travelling from place to place. There are usually also possibilities to work with youth or to visit and help poor families and neglected elderly. All these are used to share God’s love and truth with the people of Moldova.

Join other teenagers who are excited to grow in their faith and share the hope of Jesus with others! The purpose of this Village Outreach is to challenge teenagers to live out their faith by helping local churches in their ministries with children and elderly in Moldova.

This missions opportunity involves partnering with local churches to organise a day camp for children, visiting elderly people in their homes, and possibly helping practically.

This video will give you an insight into Love Moldova outreaches.

During the children's day camp you will be organising games, doing crafts, sharing a Bible story, puppets, drama, singing songs, and more. You will also visit and encourage families and elderly in their homes by listening to their stories, sharing testimonies, distributing food parcels and Bibles, and possibly helping practically. You will most likely work in two different churches and villages.
