Concert for the Children

Each fall, we take a bus load of kids from Stroiesti village to Dorohoi orphanage, and this year was no different.  The kids and teens in the village gathered fruits, vegetables, and milk for our meal together and collected enough to leave over a week’s worth of potatoes and vegetables for the 130 kids and teens at the orphanage.

This year, we were given the opportunity to be joined by Continental Choir and Band.  They joined us for a little bit and taught the kids some songs and played some games with them.  Then they went to lunch and to get ready for the concert.  I then had 60 kids from Stroiesti and Dorohoi by myself!!!  Thank God for the teens.  The Stroiesti teens stepped up and helped with the craft project; they really got in there and helped the younger kids.  Many thanks to them.

After a super lunch, prepared by my hubby, we went to the concert.  Almost all of the children and teens from the orphanage came to the concert and there were others from local churches as well. The concert hall was full.  The concert was amazing.  I didn’t expect something so great and I don’t think the kids did either!  The kids and teens loved it too.  It was great music for the soul and I recognized many of the songs from Klove–only in Romanian!
