...one who waters will himself be watered. (Proverb 11:25b)
Your generosity and support have been the blessing in many ways. This New Year, I want to thank you for all the collaboration and hope to continue for a long time to come. May God bring us more wonderful opportunities to work together for His Kingdom. December was a busy month with many activities. We had Christmas preparations with children, home visits for children, blessing them with Christmas gifts and our Shoebox Ministry. The children worked very hard for their special Christmas program and, through their incredible performance, served the body of Hope Church.
I want every child to know there is a God who loves them. As God showed us His love by offering us His most wonderful Gift! We visited homes, giving the children shoeboxes, demonstrating that it is more blessed to give than receive.
With these gifts, God has given me a new opportunity to start ministering to a new group of children in the Draganesti area. I think God wants to give me a new challenge this year with the new group of Roma children. Sometimes, I do not understand why God calls me to the Roma children, as they have many different beliefs and customs. I recently spoke with someone that does not like Roma people. That person asked me if I like them. My answer was, "I love them, because God loves them. He put love in my heart for these people and this is why I work with Roma children". I accepted them as they are because God accepted me as I am !
Pray for all the children who have heard the gospel and benefited from these gifts to receive the Lord Jesus in their lives
To have new ideas and creativity for children in 2019
For Roma children to be accepted by other children
For me to be guided by God in his plans, not mine
