Lazareni - Fundatia Caleb - The Caleb Foundation was founded in 2001 by our dear missionary friends John & Suzie Fenlason who had an incredible passion for the gypsies in the village or Lazareni, Romania. Throughout the years John and Suzie have encountered many difficulties in their attempt to help the Rroma people. Nothing stopped them from showing their love towards the gypsy people in a way the gypsies understood it. Like: providing food and clothing for the little ones, help most of them build safer little modest houses that were much better than the huts they had before, providing electricity for most villagers, providing a place where the kids could attend kindergarten and school, teaching the men to provide for their families, starting a little church where their faith was strengthened every Sunday. Due to health issues our dear friends John and Suzie had to return to the USA in 2011 when they entrusted the work in Lazareni to us, the New Life Christian Center form Oradea. One of their dreams came true in September of 2013 when we were able place on the property two units equipped with toilets and showers. During these years there have been four attempts to drill for water as the village never had drinkable water, or no water for that matter. Unfortunately each attempt had the same undesired result. The water issue is still unresolved however for the shower units we were able to put a huge tank in the ground and the mayor who has seen our desire to help the gypsy kids integrate in the public schools, will provide the water. We will continue to love the gypsies in the same manner our friends did, as we’ve seen the incredible transformation of the whole village over the years. There is still lots of work to be done and with the help of God and people willing to volunteer, we dare to see a great future for the Rroma people of Lazareni!
