In the small, remote village of Glinjeni, Moldova, lives a man called Alik. By trade he is a shoe cobbler. But the fact is Alik has no need for shoes, because he has no use of his feet or legs. He has not walked since childhood. Everyone knows Alik. His smile and happy spirit are contagious. His determination and lack of self-pity have become his trademark, not his disability.
Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland joined with COHEU in 2011 to become an Adopt-A-Community sponsor to the people of Glinjeni, Moldova. Because there was no church in Glinjeni, the initial goal of the team was to start one. A community outreach was held on the team’s first visit resulting in 70 people attending an open-air church service the following week. The first person to arrive was Alik, crawling almost a mile on hands and knees dragging his legs behind him.
