The month of December has a powerful meaning for us: this month we celebrate thr birth of Jesus Christ and we have the opportunity to share the good news of Salvation through many ways as special church programs, giving Christmas presents to children and help those is need.
With the help of some other believers from Ploiesti we got to go caroling to many people from Coteana. It was a priviledge to share the birth of our Saviour through carols and we were blessed to see people touched by the words, songs, there were people crying and saying that no one visited them during Christmas and we just bring them joy and hope. Some people came few days later to us to ask for cds with that kinds of music, because they were deeply touched.
"It is more blessed to give than to receive"
It is a great joy to be able to give to others in the name of Jesus, especially during Christmas. The main struggle of the needy people from Coteana is having firewood for the whole winter and many of them they don't affort to buy firewood as it is too expensive. It is sad to see widows or families with children that struggle to stay warm during the cold winter. If they don't have firewood they usually go on the fields to pick sunflower or corn sticks. But you can imagine that the sticks don't give so much heat as the firewoods, so we were more than happy to be able to bless 7 families with firewood. Through this given help, we want to show the love of Jesus Christ, we want to show them that they are loved and not alone during these hard times.
Please pray for those people to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and hope of their life. Pray also for us to be sesitive to the needs of people and to show them love agains all the difficulties encountered while sharing the Gospel.
Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers!!
