Buckner

John and Phyllis Carrier of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas are both over 60. They’re retired, in good health, and part of an army of seniors looking to make a difference by offering their time and years of professional experience to do some good.

The Carriers, both former educators and international travelers, found a perfect fit when they volunteered as educational consultants for Buckner in Romania. For three months, they helped research and develop a detailed plan for construction and operation of a child development center in the gypsy-populated region of Tarneveni.

Phyllis Carrier comforts a mother and child during her long-term missions stay with Buckner in Romania.
