About Sarah Vienna Music & Ministry:
After spending a few years away from music to focus on the ministry of Firm Foundations Romania, Sarah Vienna rediscovered her love of singing and writing music after turning a poem written by Steffi Vogel (Vice President of Firm Foundations Romania) into a song. “Unwanted” was written about a boy in the orphanage who wanted one last hug as Sarah and Steffi were leaving his room, and the song has become a theme song for FFR and the volunteers who bring comfort to any child who longs to be accepted and loved.
“It is the vision of Firm Foundations Romania and Sarah Vienna to blend two passions into one driving force. Describing the ministry through music is a unique way to further spread the message of what God is doing in Romania,” concluded Jennifer Peterkin.
“Sarah Vienna’s songs tell the story about the children in need, the volunteers who answer the call to come help this need, and the hope that is being spread through Firm Foundations Romania.”
