In honor of our One Year Anniversary Celebration, we are replaying episode 003 with Rachel Ross, founder of Forget Me Not Ministries, our Romanian partners!
Hey Change Maker! My guest this week is Rachel Ross, founder and executive director of Forget Me Not Ministries, a nonprofit organization that is educating, embracing and equipping the Roma for Christ.
Rachel Ross is an adoptive mama with two beautiful children, Izabella and Izaiah. She is a graduate of Lincoln Christian University, and the founding director of Forget Me Not Ministries in Tinca, Romania. Rachel is working with the Roma gypsies to equip, educate, and empower them in order to prevent abandonment, abuse, trafficking, and child marriages. God gave Rachel a heart for the abandoned and for Romania in junior high, growing up in Las Vegas. He has taken her on an incredible journey over the past 17 years living in Romania, and after she began working with abandoned babies and children, her passion grew to help break the cycles the Roma community are often caught in, allowing families to stay together and the number of orphans in Romania to decrease. Rachel’s heart is to keep Christ at the center of all Forget Me Not projects and truly believes that personal, community, and generational transformation are possible with God.
ABOUT FORGET ME NOT MINISTRIES:
Based in Tinca, Romania, Forget Me Not Ministries is working to break the destructive cycles of poverty that the Roma are trapped in due to racial descrimination, lack of education, and an absence of jobs. Each program is designed to bring dignity and empowerment to the Roma by showing them that they are capable and worthy.
