Dan and Julia are the campaign directors for a first-time campaign in Cluj-Napoca, one of the largest cities in the country. ?The leader of the pro-life movement in Romania is astonished they achieved such an amazing task of doing a campaign in a textbook fashion and wants to know how they did it,? said Robert Colquhoun, the international outreach coordinator for 40 Days for Life.

Around 600 volunteers have participated so far in 40 Days for Life ? and there are 10 different cities interested in hosting their own campaigns.

The March for Life in Cluj attracted around 5,000 people and was a stunning event. All the different denominations participated ... which is not an easy task to accomplish.


?There are many shy Christians in Romania,? Robert said, ?so 40 Days for Life is certainly counter-cultural and counter-intuitive for them. Many people are amazed that the Orthodox believers also came to pray and they have had a real talent encouraging Christians to pray together, ecumenically.?

He said they?ve run a textbook campaign, ?which sets a great precedent for the country, and I expect many spiritual fruits and blessings as a result.?
