Pathway to Joy Ministries (PTJM) reaches out to these suffering children and communities by providing them with food, clothing, shelter, medical care and other critically needed assistance, all in Christ’s name … God is using our efforts to transform the lives of children and families as they receive Christ’s amazing offer of forgiveness and hope.
Children's Hospital The local children's hospital currently has an average of 70-90 abandoned infants and children ages birth to six, who suffer from inadequate nutrition, abnormal development and proper identification documents. Unfortunately, lack of sufficient government funding prevents many of these children from being integrated into the state foster care system. God has called us to provide loving care and protection for several of these forgotten infants and children.
Recognizing that the root of the social problems in Romania today are due in part to the presence of sin, we see our focus upon the spiritual needs of the people as our best preventive measure against future child neglect and abandonment and the scriptural means for a brighter future for all Romanians! Since 2004 PTJM has planted three churches in three gypsy villiages in Romania that reach out to over 3,000 families.
