Mustard Seed Jersey Prayer Update for May 2023
(Written 1st May)
Dear Praying Friends
Thank you for your prayers – please continue to bless Mustard Seed with your prayers. In a couple of weeks we plan to send our 1st aid consignment of 2023 to Ukraine – please pray the paperwork requirements are all met and that the aid will be a real blessing to those who receive it in the Chernivtsi area. (This is in south west Ukraine near the border in north east Romania). Please pray for SORIN who will handle the paperwork requirements and has arranged a hauler for us.
In the last months we have been amazed at how much money we have received to send on to Ukraine. We were able to assist 80 families to have some light from solar panel units. Our target had been 50 but amazingly we received sufficient donations to be able to assist 80! Also we have been able each month to send over money to purchase food parcels which is much needed. We very much thank God for how we have been empowered to reach and help many more than we anticipated. Please pray the generosity continues as long as the need is there.
Please continue to pray for UKRAINE, that the war and violence will cease.
Please continue to pray for ROMANIA, especially the beneficiaries who would normally receive the clothing, etc from our aid consignment. We have been unable to resolve the Romanian requirements for sending textiles as humanitarian aid. We continue to assist them with funding as we are able.
Psalm 103 says “Praise the Lord my soul and forget not all his benefits” reminding us of forgiveness, healing, love, compassion, redemption, satisfaction and “renewing your youth like an eagle’s”. If you haven’t already researched the meaning behind the expression in Psalm 103 v 5 of renewing the eagle’s youth, can I encourage you to use google or another search engine as learning about it has made that verse really come alive to me.
In His service
