Felipe and Janelle deWaard-Silva

  • Evangelism and church planting

The click of an unlocked door marks the beginning of another busy day at Fǎrǎ Limite Climbing Gym. Chalk instantly covers hands, and clouds of chalk dust fill the air. Music blasts as kids scale the walls for the next seven hours. Cheers of encouragement and warm embraces provide a glimpse into the family they’ve built here, a stark contrast to many of the kids’ lives outside the gym walls.

In partnership with the New Horizons Foundation, Felipe and Janelle work with Roma youth in the Jiu Valley to build trust, perseverance, character, and courage through rock climbing. In a town where poverty forces many parents to move away for work, this ministry provides youth in the neighborhood of Dallas, Romania, an environment where they can experience safety and respect, develop life skills, pursue education, and come to know the love of Christ. Felipe and Janelle are also planting a church in Dallas, Romania.
