Riches in Romania (Faith Finders)
- Rebecca Parkinson
Jenny's parents have always been able to give her everything she wants until her dad begins a new job working for a Christian charity. As Jenny struggles to come to terms with their new lifestyle, her family is invited to take part in a farming project in Romania and Jenny sets off on an adventure that will ultimately change her life! As Jenny and her brother David spend time in a small Romanian village they make friends with the local children and begin to realise that friendship can break down barriers of wealth, language and culture. However when Jenny's precious locket goes missing it seems that everything has gone wrong, until a guard, previously in the Communist regime, teaches her the secret of forgiveness and encourages her to set about putting things right in her own life. It is hoped that this book will introduce children to life in Romania. It aims to show how many of us have become so caught up in materialism that we have lost something of the purpose and the wonder of life. It also aims to show how the love of God breaks down barriers and that forgiveness is the only way to live happy and fulfilled lives.
