In the midst of war, our missional staff are working hard to help and serve in the name of Christ!
Jay Benfante, one of our newest cross-cultural staff, recently moved to Prishtina, Kosovo. Just four days later, he was flying to Romania to help Serve the City, a Communitas partner, serve refugees from the current war between Russia and Ukraine.
Together with a network of churches and nonprofits, many have banded together to serve, house, transport, feed and clothe refugees coming over the border into Romania. Jay has been helping facilitate a partnership with UPS (yes, the United Parcel Service!) and Serve the City in western Europe to help bring tons of goods to Romania for refugees. Ukrainians and others are flooding into Romania, trying to flee the war as early spring in Europe brings unrelenting cold. Workers continue serving nonstop, day in and day out. They continue to need our help and support.
