December 2014 newsletter- Pray for the Avadaneis

Hello friends,

 

Here are our projects for December :

20 Dec, Saturday  2-5pm  Christmas Program with carols and gifts.  We’ve been blessed with giftboxes from a church in Ireland to give to the orphan children in the two State Orphanages.  Our small group of volunteers was challenged with low funds for gifts this year until we received the news of the boxes, praise the Lord!  Now we will have enough for juice and a sweet for each child during the party, as well as the boxes.  We will share these when we go with other volunteers from our Church for carols and a skit about Christmas.

25 Dec Orphan children in the homes for Christmas, along with church at 10am.

31 Dec teenager New Years Eve gathering.  We are bringing some young people from the State Orphanage in town to a New Year’s Eve gathering with our church’s young people.  We’ll have games, a special meal, and time for socialization.

 

Luci and I are doing well at getting settled and finding our place.  We are back in Romania after getting married in Sept in US(in Aug was the Romanian wedding) and spending some time in the States.  We’ve been catching up with the families at church here and explaining our plans.  In addition to a prayer group that meets every Wednesday that we are involved in, we have found a group of young adults that meets every Saturday night for a time of sharing and spiritual challenge.  We will have guests in our home the week of Christmas, Johnny & Rebecca Weixler friends from America, and they will help with our activities the week they are here.  Pray for safe travels for them!

 

Thank you to churches Zion United Methodist Church of Peach Bottom, PA and Eldred Church of God, Eldred PA for their special collections and crafts and activity pages, we will be using them to fulfill our commitments for Christmas activities with the children.  So far, the kids at the orphanages in town have been practicing  for a program with songs and poems for Christmas, and they’re excited to be involved.  We will be bringing a group of orphan children from the State Orphanages to our church to share the program we have practiced, and afterwards they will go home with certain families in church for a Christmas meal.

Please keep us and the activities with the children in your prayers.  Thank you as you remember them.

May the peace of the fulfilled prophecy fill your hearts as we remember Jesus’ coming to earth.  Let’s give thanks together for the gift of God’s Son who has experienced this earth and offers us mercy and hope.  May the Lord warm your hearts.

  1. Prayers to you! It was wonderful talking with you on the telephone. Thank you for sharing how you are settling in as well as prayer requests and how to get your newsletters. I am looking forward to sharing with First Church of God, Eldred PA. We continue to pray with you and I (Robin) have spent extra time in prayer as I finish knitting booties. Blessings from Dale and Robin.
