Clothing donation to the village 🌸

We went on Thursday to the village of Gârcina (30 min away from our house) to share 8 bags of clothing with some needy families. It had been a few months since seeing them, last time was before I had the baby, and it was good to catch up! Some took a supplementary course at school during Easter break and did well. Keep praying for the kids’ salvation who come to our program 🌸🌸🌸🌸🙏🙏

Christmas shoeboxes at Ion Creanga Orphanage & two new villages 🎁

On Dec 19, we were able to share 25 shoeboxes at the Ion Creanga Orphanage with the children & youth who were involved in our program. They were so joyful to see us & for the present! We continue to pray for their growth & development even though we can’t go physically to see them on account of restrictions for volunteers.

On Christmas Day, Luci and our pastor from the city church visited a village church an hour away for their Christmas service. They were able to share 40 boxes with the children who were there from that village and the neighboring village. These villages both have established church plants, but no children’s ministries. We are praying about what we can do for the children of that area in the future. Thank you for making a box and sharing the Love and Light of Christmas!! 🎁🎁

Christmas Shoeboxes in Village of Gârcina

On Monday December 21, we shared 25 Christmas shoeboxes with the children in the village of Gârcina, along with 2 bags of groceries per family donated by the village church. Thank you to those who made a box!!🌟🎄🙏🥰
These kids have been most regular in coming to the kids program this year. We hope the Lord continues to teach them His ways as they grow older. Plus some older girls we have known for a number of years, they used to come when they were littler. 🥰🙏
(Two families I didn’t get their pictures; one I forgot to snap while talking😒😆, and the other was working I had to give her quickly on her break.)🙏🎁
