Forty-two Franciscan University students served on their ten-day break, October 13-20, reaching well over a thousand youth in Romania and Slovakia with the message of God’s love. Here is some of the feedback from the teams:

“It was the most beautiful experience of serving – to have the kids so open!” – Team in Cluj, Romania

“How do you do relational ministry without speaking Romanian?! Through the language of love, by letting their love be received” – Team in Deva, Romania

“The mission trip showed us the universal Church: Mass, worship songs.” – Team in Bardejov, Slovakia

“The hospitality was so warm, so giving, so kind. We received more than we gave. The moments of having fun were the moments to share the Light of Jesus.” – Team in Nove Mesto, Slovakia

“We had to communicate with the heart.” Team in Zakovce, Slovakia

Thanks be to God for all the graces received, for all the time, talent, and resources shared!
