Romania Paintings for Livada Send Off

In June 2014, I went to Romania to work with the Livada Orphan Care (LOC) orphans. The beauty of the ministry and country inspired me and I wanted to paint scenes of Romania. When I was praying one morning, I had the idea to paint these scenes of Romania and donate the final pieces to Livada to raise money for orphan sponsorship. I sent the paintings to Texas with my Aunt Candy and Uncle Dale this week. I am so excited and am praying that they will be able to raise enough money to sponsor an orphan for one year.

Paintings for Livada: Romanian Woman with Cane

When I was on the missions trip with Grace Church serving the Livada Orphan Care ministry in Romania, the beauty of the country inspired me. I had the idea that when I got home to Arkansas I could paint these Romanian scenes and donate the paintings to Livada to raise money for orphan sponsorship.

We drove everywhere from the group house to the places and people we would serve for the day. As we were driving, I kept holding my camera against the car window and snapping pictures along the road side.

I got so many great shots, but this old Romanian woman with a cane really stood out to me.
