Rebecca Dan Walsh, the founder and
President of Casa Shalom
Rebecca is originally from the United States. She has spend half of her life living in Europe. She was born and raised in Maryland along with her eight siblings. She will tell you her mother is the most amazing woman who could always out work them when they were kids. Becky's wholesome up bringing has been a blessing to her. She was not afraid to tackle difficult tasks or responsibilities when reaching out to the people in Eastern Europe. In 1981 Becky went to Germany as a missionary. During the cold war and until the Revolution in 1989 she was active helping needy people in most of Eastern Europe. She has amazing stories to share that will inspire anyone wanting to live a life of faith like she has the last 36 years.
In 1996 she founded Casa Shalom and for 13 yrs. ran a children's home with a team of dedicated Romanian workers and had many volunteer teams come from the U.S. and Ireland to help with the projects.
Casa Shalom continues to reach out to the needy families in the villages in Romania where they help hundreds of children with food, clothing, shoes and children with medical problems. Their goal is helping families so that their children can stay with them and not end up being abandoned. Healthy children need to live in healthy families. When they help a family they are helping them to also become independent and learn to use their skills to provide for their families.
We are in the final stage of completing a safe house for women which will be a refuge for women who need assistance in abuse cases and other situations. This project will be administrated by our partners in Nepal and Brazil. We are so thankful for their expertise in trafficking and this will let us continue to work with the poor people in the villages. God's ways are so amazing. I love the way God leads us and brings us in contact with the perfect people to lead and direct a ministry.
Please pray for the visas for the couple from Brazil who will be running the house here at Casa Shalom for women. They have been working on trying to get their Romania visas for the last six months. Pray there will be a breakthrough for their visas. Amen!
