Rachel and Marius.
Today at the building site Marius, one of the beneficiaries, told us his emotional story about his family. Marius is terminally ill and so he explained that it is important for him to provide a house for his two children. He told us about his faith and how he feels it is important to have fun and be humorous as "what will be will be".
At the end of this touching story he offered his orthodox beads, (similar to prayer beads) to Rachel as a way to remember him and our time in Romania. Marius' story made it even more evident how important the work with Habitat for Humanity is and the impact their work has on individuals here.
