Ken and Mary Afman of Plainfield Township recently spent two weeks volunteering in Romania. They went with a group of 14 members of LaGrave Church to work in Ozd, Romania, which is located in the Transylvania area.
Ozd is a small rural town of about 350 residents who travel by horse and wagon, and their cows walk down the dirt village streets out to pasture. Under the auspices of Bonus Pastor Foundation, the group dug ditches, built a three-sided storage building, and worked in a 500-year-old castle (pictured). In previous years, the group has rehabbed an old grainery into a dormitory and treatment center for recovering alcoholics.
