Preparing for an outreach to Romania

*This document is for mission teams of any size and individual travelers. Some information may not apply to every visitor but please read everything*
 
Sample packing list for romania
  • Bible/journal
  • Small flashlight with batteries/there can be a lot of walking in the dark
  • Personal toiletries
  • Towel and washcloth (depending on how large your team is)
  • Chap stick and lotion (your skin gets drier if it is cold)
  • Long underwear (if visiting during the cold months)
  • One long skirt for women /dress pants for men
  • One pair of work pants or pants that could get dirty
  • One pair of tennis shoes/walking shoes
  • One pair of shoes that you can wear in the MUD if visiting in spring or late fall!
  • Warm winter jacket, scarves, mittens, hats, etc. (Winter is Nov 1st-April 1st)
  • Some kind of carrier for your money and passport (Frontpack/Moneybelt)
  • We do not suggest bringing expensive jewelry (outside of wedding rings)
  • It is a good idea for one or two of your team members to apply for and bring an
    international driver license in case there is need for an extra driver
A few helpful suggestions:
  • Pack for at least half the amount of time you will be in Romania. (Example:
    10-day trip/5 days of clothing)
  • Be prepared to re-wear jeans
  • Bring enough undergarments for the duration of the whole trip
  • Laundry: There are no such things as laundry mats in Calarasi, and there is
    always a chance something could be wrong with the washer and dryer in the
    ministry apartment. So, be prepared as if you could NOT do laundry.

your team towards having an unforgettable and impacting experience in Romania
