What if you’d never slept in a bed?

This year students from 16 different countries who currently live in the UK, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland boarded buses for “Project Compassion” in Serbia.

Students engaged in several work projects one of which was renovating a home and providing beds for a very special Roma family whose 9 children had never slept in bed.

I can not describe the excitement on these little faces when we showed them a picture of what their beds would look like. We are incredibly blessed to be allowed to serve alongside international students to help make moments like this possible.

During the week our staff and volunteers are had incredible conversations with students and the depth of community built during the week is amazing. Year after year we see transformed lives and students anxious to return and bring their friends.
