Mustard Seed Jersey Prayer Update April 2014


Pointers for prayer for Mustard Seed’s work in Romania:

This month we focus on our work among children & young people:

With Mustard Seed Romania:

·         Kindergarten at Cefa – most who attend are gypsy many are disadvantaged. Remember MARIANA the teacher and her assistant. Pray for ALEX & RODY who have over-all over-sight of this and all Mustard Seed’s children’s work in Romania.

·         Homework clubs at Cefa and Ateas – teacher IOANA at Cefa and another teacher in Ateas.

·         Education Sponsorship programme at Pagaia to enable able students to attend high school. Pray especially for LIDIA whose family have struggled with the very serious illness of her brother BENI – pray too for Beni for a miracle of healing. And pray for ALEXANDRIA & TOBY.

·         Talented child ESTERA – has exceptional musical ability, pray for wisdom for her parents to know the best way to develop her talent.


With FI (Fundatia Increderea)

·         Homework Club – this has been recently started thank to a donation from Jersey. Pray for the student teachers and the 12 young people attending. The children receive a nutritious meal or snack as all are from impoverished family circumstances. Pray for NELU and CRISTINA (who run FI) for wisdom.

·         Youth Club – usually on a Saturday morning run by CRISTINA. We give thank to God for a donation from Jersey that made possible the repair of the floor of FI’s main meeting room, making it much pleasanter and safer for the 30 or so Youth Club children. The children’s gratitude and excitement is humbling and inspirational as we watch their enthusiasm and acceptance of comparatively poor conditions and very little apparatus, when we compare to facilities in Jersey youth clubs.


With Fundatia Crestina Vineyard:

        Vineyard run a English Christian kindergarten, where we have

assisted with equipment and Christmas shoeboxes.


Other needs in Romania:

Pray for ALEX and RODY as they consider the possibility of expanding Casa Mabel. (The building of Casa Mabel was funded by Mustard Seed Jersey and we still provide funding for some salaries, medical care and some food each month.) Mustard Seed Jersey has recently been approached for funding to expand – pray the Jersey TRUSTEES will have WISDOM to know whether the work is sufficiently established and ready for expansion.



Our aid consignment is due to leave at the beginning of May – I plan to send another prayer update with specific details for your prayers nearer the time. Please pray for finishing off the LOADING. There have been logistical problems with the authorities re-surfacing the parking area, which has stopped access for loading. So please pray all will slot into place for BILL and his team of LOADERS.



We are looking for a replacement SMALLER LORRY for us in Jersey for collections and loading (so that HGV or medium goods licence no longer required). Please pray for wisdom and guidance.



Please continue to pray for Ukraine for wisdom and guidance that right choices will be made. We understand that many involved in the movement for change are deeply committed Christians who want God’s best for their country.


Please bless us with your prayers. We do believe prayer changes things.


In His service
