Monthly Prayer Notes

The Romanian Aid Foundation – June 2018

RoAF is essentially a faith-based organisation that relies on prayer. Below and overleaf we offer some prayer pointers, but please feel free to add your own items as they come to mind. Prayer is our connection with God’s ultimate power source and, without prayer support, this work would achieve nothing of lasting value.
 
Once again, two lorry-loads of ‘goodies’ will be heading out to Romania during this month. There is a diversity of items, all of which will address the particular needs of people. We are grateful for the regular supply of food and clothing, and also for those ‘one-off’ donations such as musical instruments, solar panels, carpet tiles and a bulk supply of commodes!

Give thanks …

1. for the miracle of adequate stocks to fill each lorry.
2. for the generous gifts that allow the trucks to keep rolling and underwrite special events such as the children’s camp.

Please pray …

1. for the safe arrival of the lorries leaving Billingshurst and Swansea during the next two weeks.
2. about the longer-term implications of an ageing team of supporters.

Asociaţia Neemia – June 2018

The construction stage for Casa Neemia is now substantially complete and we start on the process of obtaining the final approvals. Those temporary residents who have been helping with trying out the facilities and helping with its maintenance will be considered for longer term accommodation and we will be looking to find the right people to occupy the remaining rooms. We need to define some expectations and house rules, and establish a longer-term management structure for the house.
Preparations are under way for this year’s camp which is to be held during the period 18th to 23rd June. Once again the campers will be enjoying the facilities at Camp Cristia near to the famous Voronet monastery. Some 40 children will be chosen from amongst our beneficiary families, together with a few more from ‘church’ families to show them the ropes whilst five leaders will, hopefully, keep them in order. Groups from elsewhere in Romania also attend the camp at the same time and this allows all the children to learn something about areas that they may not be familiar with. Once again, we are grateful to our supporters in south Wales who have provided the majority of the sponsorship for this holiday.
This week we will be exploring an opportunity to further publicise the needs in this part of Romania. We have had an offer of video expertise to illustrate not only our work but also the spiritual needs that our present workload precludes us from addressing adequately.
In addition to these special activities our normal work continues, with the distribution of aid, visiting our beneficiaries and helping people in difficult circumstances. This can only continue through the support that we receive and once again we pass on the thanks of all those who benefit from the generosity of our supporters.

Give thanks …

1. for the evidence of new crops already growing well.
2. for the hope and encouragement that each lorry brings.

Please pray …

1. for this year’s Children’s Camp at Voronet,
2. for the video initiative illustrating the spiritual needs in this area.
