Mustard Seed Jersey Prayer Update January 2008
I do want to wish
you all a peaceful and prosperous new year but above all a year when you grow
in your relationship with the Lord.
can give thanks for a safe
and successful trip in December.
some of you prefer newsletters without pictures I am attaching the newsletter
about the trip minus the pictures to this email.)
their problems seem to have resolved as the wife has left her abusive husband
and is now with the children back in the village.
PENSIONERS – we now have almost 80 pensioners sponsored.
Our plans are now
to concentrate on fundraising to complete the money needed to build the
pensioners home in Romania.
We plan to send
our next aid lorry to Romania in March or April.
We have had some
specific requests for prayer:
pray for these needs in Romania:
- ALEX STROIE and his wife RODY for
problems that Mustard
Seed Romania is experiencing – Mustard Seed Romania has been blessed with
2 vans / minibuses thanks to an American group. But both are currently off
the road,. One used just for short trips to fetch children and pensioners
for kindergarten and pensioners meeting from the next village is probably
past economic repair, while the better minibus which was usually used by
Alex for the 40 km trip between Oradea and Cefa has developed what seems to
be an electrical fault which has been baffling everyone for weeks.
The reliable lack of transport is a huge problem and means for example
that Alex has to borrow a vehicle to purchase food for food parcels, etc.
Please pray it is quickly resolved.
- Pray for the provision of an
additional reliable vehicle for the pensioners’ home when that is open.
- FLORI - there is a possibility a
donor has been found who could give her a kidney for a much needed
transplant. At the moment tests are taking place. Please pray for God’s
blessing on all concerned.[Anyone reading this who is in touch with Flori
is asked NOT to mention it to Flori as until it is confirmed that the
donor is compatible, Flori will not know about it as she has been so
deeply disappointed in the past that we do not want to raise her hopes in
- FLORICA – she had to be asked to
leave the Mustard Seed sheltered apartment about 18 months ago because of
her violence towards the other girls; she appeared to change and was
allowed to return but sadly after a few months the violence and other
problems returned so last summer she was asked to leave again. She is now
causing problems by accusations and threats. She is a deeply hurt and
scarred young woman who was abused as a child. Pray for her for healing.
- STEFAN is the newest boy at the
boys hostel and he is having major problems settling in.
- KATHY LANGSTON needs to move from her
present apartment in the spring – please pray God provides a good place
for her and the girls. Pray too that the various procedures for completing
the adoption process for the 2 girls she fosters are completed
In Jersey there are some needs:
pray for these needs in Jersey
- Provision of a temporary warehouse
for us to use to process a large amount of clothing that we have been
promised. And that volunteers will be available to achieve this.
- Success in sourcing various items
needed for the pensioners’ home and other needs in Romania
- Success in raising the remainder of
the money needed for the pensioners’ home.
- God’s healing and strength for
various volunteers, supporters and their family members including
Margaret, Carol-Anne, Barry, Joe, Grace, George, Dennis, Jo, Pam, Phil
- Wisdom to know the way ahead as
decisions have to be taken.
- Safety and success and good health
for the small team who are loading the trailer ready for the next aid
to bless us with your prayers, We do believe that PRAYER CHANGES THINGS
God bless you.
