A Heart for Romanian Orphans - II
Radio Guest(s) Miss Jacci Knight and Miss Sarah Berchtold
Imagine entering a hospital filled wall to wall with over a hundred babies, yet not hearing a single peep. How could this be? It’s because the abandoned infants have already learned that no one will come when they cry. On today’s emotional broadcast, you will learn what you can do to change the lives of these little ones one hug at a time.
Be sure to watch Sarah's music video "Unwanted" and Jacci's Global Hope slide show.

Jacci Knight has been involved with Global Hope since 1998, when she went on her first mission to trip to Arad, Romania. In September of 1999 she became Global Hope’s first long-term missionary, working for over four years with the children in Arad. She now works as an Associate Producer for the Focus on the Family daily radio broadcast in Colorado Springs and polishes her Romanian language skills by serving as the Director of Romanian Operations for Global Hope.
Sarah Berchtold learned at an early age that you need to be strong to be heard. Growing up she knew that she wanted to go overseas and help. Sarah first came to Romania in November 2003 with Youth with a Mission to work with street kids and orphans. She fell in love with Brasov and came back independently the following year. After the state orphanages closed down in 2005, Sarah and a friend ventured to the Brasov Children's Hospital to find the children that were still in a social crisis. Four years later, Sarah became the president of Firm Foundations Romania. She received her Romanian residency in 2009 and considers Brasov her second home.
