Mama Tatiana finds Rest 🙏
With a heavy heart, as we try to trust in God’s plans, we announce that Mama Tatiana from the Casa Ray Orphanage is with the Lord. There was a fire in the hospital’s intensive care unit on Nov 14, where she was recovering from Covid, that started from faulty connections and spread rapidly. She had been doing better with her oxygen levels, but only God knows why this happened. She died, along with seven others in her room, almost immediately from smoke inhalation. The fire was rapid. She was 67.
Ten patients passed away total. The doctor on duty had severe burns from trying to save patients, and was transferred to Belgium for skin grafts. Let us keep all those families affected in our prayers, the Gavril family, their children grandchildren, the children in the Casa Ray home, the doctors & nurses, and those that were wounded. The Lord binds up the broken-hearted!!!💞💞💞🙏🙏🙏😞😞😞😞
Covid Cases Reach Casa Ray Orphanage
We heard in beginning of November from the orphanage Casa Ray in Dobreni that there were 5 kids and 4 workers who tested positive for COVID. The workers include Mama Tatiana, Tata Mihai, Madalina si Matei Gavril. Mama Tatiana entered the hospital since Thursday Nov 5 with low oxygen levels. The others had been in isolation 14 days, separate from the rest of the home. Everyone got over it thankfully, except for Mama Tatiana. 😓🙏
We do English at the Casa Ray Orphanage and take them to summer camp, and other activities but haven’t been there since March 2020 because of restrictions. They need our prayers! 🙏🙏💖💖
Summer update 2020
“This is what the Lord says: ‘You say about this place, “It is a desolate waste, without people or animals.” Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither people nor animals, there will be heard once more 11 the sounds of joy and gladness, the voices of bride and bridegroom, and the voices of those who bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord, saying,
“Give thanks to the Lord Almighty,
for the Lord is good;
his love endures forever.”
For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,’ says the Lord.“
Jeremiah 33: 10-11
🙏🙏We pray you are making this unprecedented time useful & trusting in the Lord to reveal his promises that there will be good to come. He is always faithful and never changing from beginning to the end.
With cancellation of all our children’s meetings this Spring, have taken this time to teach our children the Easter story in a meaningful way, we’ve played more, done more crafts, and have been more intentional with correction. It’s been a fruitful time! If you are a parent, we pray YOU can also parent with the help of the Holy Spirit so God’s love fills our/ your house. We pray in this new normal we can find ways to reach out to those in our corner of the world and encourage them in their belief in God. How can we pray for your family in this time?🙏🙏🙏
Our camps are cancelled for the summer, because of meeting restrictions at the campgrounds and distancing. We are hoping to do some outreaches over the summer in some villages.
Outreach at the Ion Creanga State Orphanage in our city has been cancelled since March, waiting to hear when we can start visiting again. Looking forward to teaching them stories from the flannel graph again. 🤗🤗🤗😁😁
Praise God, we had an online meeting with a church in Lancaster in early May and it was encouraging and fruitful.💖
Praise God, our home church in Piatra-Neamt has had open-air sermons for three weeks. In two more weeks they will hold indoors. May our church and the church members shine God’s light 💖
Please pray for Cristina, a teenaged helper of ours, as she decides what to do after high school. She helps us at the IC Orphanage. 💖
Please pray for Anita a worker from Casa Ray Orphanage, who was diagnosed with Covid two weeks ago. She is feeling better. 💖
