Sorin fought hard to bring the Gospel message to their village in an adapted manner. He started with a music festival - Youth Music Fest (http://youthmusicfest.ro/) - which now brings together more than 600 young people each summer. Sorin & Mihaela also began weekly programs for the kids, and music week-ends for the teens.
