Heart's Home USA
July 15, 2010

Heart's Home is volunteer/mission where a young person can volunteer about 1-2 years in a foreign country befriending those who suffer most and living a strong community and prayer life with about 3 or 4 other young people. In Romania, our friends were a mix of Gypsies, Hungarians, and Romanians. When we are at home, we have an open door policy for anyone who wants to drop by for a visit - usually children. In the afternoons, we go on apostolates, visiting our friends. We try to befriend those who are most lonely or suffering. It was an incredible experience that I can't describe in words and definitely a life-changing experience.
