    The Beginning of Mana

    The Beginning of Mana

    A group of young christians saw the misery of the street children and wanted to do something about it. They didn’t have financial resources. They didn’t know influential people. They didn’t have diplomas or professional experience. Even social work was unknown  territory.

MANA

“Mana” is a Romanian nonprofit organization. It’s not political and it’s independent of Romanian, foreign, state or private corporations. “Mana” emerged from the free initiative of the founding members. “Mana” is currently fulfilling its task of supporting families in the care, support and development of children in difficult living conditions. The Mana Association also runs a farm with animals, including for therapeutic purposes.

TESTIMONIALS

A lot was different than expected, but that’s exactly what opened my heart. I was allowed to learn from people whose hearts are devoted. I was received, inspired, challenged in my thinking and doing and directed and brought everything closer to Jesus. I am grateful to have had this experience.

It was a blessed time with an incredible amount of experiences. I felt at home in no time. I am grateful and have great respect for the people who do this demanding and valuable work.

If I were to describe my time in Romania with a few adjectives, “fulfilled”, “blessed”, “grateful” and “simply beautiful” would be at the forefront. In February 2019 I was in the boy’s house for just over 10 days. What I remember particularly positively is the morning prayer with the team. What is helpful in such an assignment is an open eye for the needs of the people around you, the willingness to tackle no matter what job is involved and a good sense of what is important and what is important. And with all of this, you should always be aware that God is the one who enables you to do something for him in the first place.

In autumn 2018 I visited the “Caleb” boys’ home in Timisoara, Ianova. I was warmly welcomed when I arrived. My duties included household chores, renovation work and childcare. I particularly liked the evening devotions with the children. A Bible text was exchanged, prayed and sung. I am very thankful to God that I was allowed to be here and could collect so many beautiful and valuable experiences. ”

My first visit to Timisoara, Ianova was 3 years ago in the boy house “Caleb”. I don’t know what I expected anymore, but I know that the stay touched me very much, everything. I could have packed my things on the spot to do more. Since I have a family, the following assignments were rather short trips. I then tried to fly to Romania every 3-4 months, sometimes with family and sometimes with friends. In the meantime, all the boys have grown dear to my heart and we like to tackle them regularly.
