MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... support Brian Johnston as he teaches English and music at the Protestant Theological College in Cluj, Romania. Brian leads two choirs consisting of theological students. Choir means they can practice their English and share their faith through music. Karikas Orsoly, a second year student, and a member of the girls' choir writes, " In this choir we can develop and learn beautiful songs. Through singing we can express our feelings. Everybody has the same importance and is treated with equal respect. I like that we learn religious songs, in which we can glorify God who has given us all incredible gifts."
