A couple decades ago, the dictator Ceau?escu of Romania, with apparent political motives, encouraged adults to bear as many children as possible. Because of much poverty, the swelling birth population resulted in thousands of babies with no sustainable care by parents.
Thus, scores of orphanages were set up to provide temporary care of these children.
Now, as adolescent children are dropped from these orphanages, they have about two alternatives to survive on their own: yes — drugs and prostitution.
On Sunday, March 20, Jennifer Klotz will once again be sharing her gift of music at Our Redeemer and telling her stories of working with these children, assuring them that they are not “throw away kids” but children who are made to feel special and loved by God.
They get some life skills so that they have a fighting chance at a productive life. Jenn, in addition to singing music that includes her own songs about these children, will share both pictures and stories of her continued work in Romania.
Jennifer is the daughter of Myrin and Audrey and brother of George Bentz. She is a professional singer and her music and story would be a good reason to invite a neighbor or friend to worship with us on March 20.Share on Facebook
