Mustard Seed Jersey Prayer Update September and October 2018

September  21st  2018

LOADING TRAILERS:  This coming week (24th – 27th) we will be loading the packed boxes, bags etc onto trailers ready for shipment to St Malo on 29th then on to Romania, God willing, arriving the following week.

Because we experienced some major logistical problems last time we are especially concerned that all goes smoothly and ask for your prayers.

*       Give thanks for the willing volunteers and pray God’s blessing on each one and then pray the onward journey with a Romanian haulier goes well.

*       Also please pray Alex in Romania is successful in fulfilling all the requirements for paperwork regarding registering the aid consignment in Romania.


CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES:  We are also getting ready for the Christmas shoebox appeal and again ask for your prayers that all will go smoothly.

We give thanks for premises for the appeal kindly made available by the National Trust of Jersey.

Again we ask for your prayers for Alex in Romania as he commences the lengthy process of registering the planned donation months in advance.


LOOKING AHEAD:   With Brexit looming, we ask for prayers for clarity and wisdom as nobody knows just how this will affect the sending of humanitarian aid to Romania from a source outside the EU.


I have had no specific requests from Romania to share for your prayers. But as the weather starts to get colder, it is inevitable there is anxiety among those we assist, so please remember them in your prayers, that there will be sufficient to meet needs.


We remember the challenging words of Jesus (in Matthew 25):

“For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.”

They will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 

He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 


In His service
