About Summer Serve 2014

George Fox University is excited to be in a long term partnership with Word Made Flesh. Word Made Flesh is a nonprofit organization that is called and committed to serve Jesus among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor. This year we partnering with their teams in Romania/Moldova and Argentina. World Made Flesh has established communities in Asia, Latin America, Europe and Africa.

Romania/Moldova

Romania is searching for a new identity amidst its dramatic change from communism to capitalism. Romania suffers economic displacement, the AIDS epidemic, and rising ethnic struggles. Word Made Flesh Romania serves Jesus among the most vulnerable there: at-risk children, street youth and poor families. Christians from Romania and other nations come together from various local churches to seek the Kingdom of God in community. Through ministry on the streets and educational programs at a community center, they strive for a transformed society in which the poor are redeemed and empowered.

Argentina

Word Made Flesh Argentina, in collaboration with Argentine partners, is called to serve and discover Jesus among vulnerable children and young adults living in poverty. Through mutual friendships based on love and trust, we accompany our excluded friends in experiencing and knowing Jesus and a fuller life in God.  Intentional hospitality is essential to our ministry creating a space for intimacy with God and neighbor. Through Ministry Among Youth in Retiro, Encuentros, visits/discipleship, and after­‐school tutoring, WMF hopes to deepen relationships by showing God’s love and commitment to people through activities, games, Bible studies and meals together!
