The Family and their Ministry – ID 41
This couple founded the River of Life Care Home Ministry and have between 15-21 mothers with young children, a staff of 9, and many ministry outreaches including care of elderly women and camps for children and young adults. The home is for mothers who want to keep their children and babies and not abort or abandon them. The children range in age from newborns, toddlers, preschoolers and up. These women have no financial resources or social support system, little or no education or job skills and are medically and socially at risk. They also care for their own two children who live with them on the property. (Photo of some of the moms and children at our home. Click to enlarge)


Over the years the ministry has helped more than 140 women and children. The family needs someone to help care for their own two children (born 2005 and 2008) and perhaps help a few hours in the afternoon with learning activities and playground supervision for the children in the Home. This is a wonderful opportunity to help others care for their children, be responsible for their lives and enter in to the culture of Romania.

Note: If you feel led to come on board alongside us in a longer term nanny type role, helping us with the children as well as household chores so that we could be freed up to be able to spend more focused time on running the ministry, please prayerfully consider this and please contact us. Thanks!
