Robin and Aaron Bruski, originally from Loganville, moved to Romania after first visiting on a mission trip through their church, First Baptist Church of Loganville, before deciding to move permanently.
“They went over on the missions trip, came back and prayed and prayed and felt led to go themselves and serve the people there. They packed up themselves and their kids and moved,” Loganville resident and friend of the family Kim Randal Smith said. The family is well known in the local community.
They now live three hours from the Ukraine border and are in a position to help directly by housing refugees from the Ukraine. Through their Mission, Belief in Motion Inc, and their church, they are able to provide housing for 60 refugees and any contributions raised will go directly to help the families, mostly women and children, fleeing from the war zone.
“Thanks to Robin and Aaron for opening up their facilities and thanks to our church members from Koinonia 29 opening up their homes, we have lots of room to shelter people from Ukraine. Some acquaintances that were supposed to arrive today are still there trying to figure out the best way to come,” their Romanian daughter-in-law, Alexandra, wrote on her Facebook page. “Keep them in your prayers as many hard decisions will be made in the next few hours and days. The important thing is that we are ready and have lots of room for those in need, and many people willing to help in the best way they can. We have room for 60 or more people.”
If you want to join in supporting this cause you can do so by donating through Belief in Motion Inc and be assured your contribution will make an impact.
“Whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. Glorify God by serving others with compassion. Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit,” Alexandra said.
Ronnie Kendall, the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Loganville, said if anybody has trouble donating through the Belief in Motion Facebook link, can do so through the church.
“Reach out to First Baptist Loganville and they will tell you how you can donate to the Bruski’s (Belief in Motion) through the church,” he said. “They are a wonderful, godly couple whose ministry does wonderful things in Romania! Please know anything you donate will be put to the use designated on the post!”
