Welcome to 2022! 🇷🇴

Greetings from the Avadanei’s! 🌺 May you start this new year with hope as you grow in your faith in the Lord! Here is our summary of events from 2021; this year we hope to continue the same programs using the Gospel of Matthew in our kids clubs, some curriculum from Child Evangelism Fellowship, have some excursions for kids in summer, and hand out Christmas shoeboxes. Blessings to you and yours!

Isaiah 43:16-19 16“I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea.
17 I called forth the mighty army of Egypt with all its chariots and horses. I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned, their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick.
18 “But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. 19 For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” 🌾🌿
