Mercy mission to Moldova

CHISINAU, Moldova — This small, former Soviet country, sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania, is considered the poorest nation in Europe.
It’s also ground zero for human trafficking on the continent, according to faith-based nonprofit Justice and Mercy International.
A team of 11 women from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., traveled to Moldova recently to assist an organization called Beginning of Life.
 The organization, overseen by Moldovan Christians, works in the country’s public schools, speaking out about the dangers of human trafficking. Beginning of Life encourages children to follow their dreams without giving in to the temptations of drugs and prostitution.
“Our mission is to serve women who have never been served by creating relationships with them, showing them the love of Christ and having a chance to grow as sisters in Christ together,” said Alex Shumate, a member of the Woodmont Hills Church of Christ in Nashville.
The team also distributed bags of food to hungry families in Moldova.
