Prayer Requests!!

When I go to the village I see so much need.  The greatest need the people have is for the Salvation that only God can offer through His Son, Jesus Christ.  This should always be our first prayer for the people in Stroiesti,  all over Romania and around the world.  Below is a list of additional prayer requests from Stroiesti.

1.       You may remember that Olga broke her leg in September.  She recently got her cast off and unexpectantly needs another surgery.  She is in much pain and cannot walk.  Currently, she is using a walker.  She is only 34 years old and is pretty much confined to one room. Please pray for healing, as well as the means for the family to pay for the surgery.

2.       Olga’s son, Bogdan has crossed eyes.  A donation was made to have his eyes corrected and the surgery was planned for the first of January.  He is so excited about this, unfortunately, because Olga cannot walk; she is unable to take him for the surgery.  His father cannot take him because then there would be no one to care for the animals on their small farm.  We looked at me taking him alone and I would need power attorney, this cannot be done before I leave in January.  Also, although, my Romanian is much better than it was in October, I still do not know enough to discuss such serious things with the doctors. Please pray Olga will be able to walk by June, so that Bogdan can have the surgery.  Also, pray that the surgery will be successful and that Bogdan will have patience until June.

5.       Pray for a successful Christmas celebration on Dec. 27.

6.       Please pray for my continued improvement in Romanian and the ability to retain during time in the States.

7.       Finally, as many of you know, it is my heart’s desire to have a children’s center and live in Stroiesti and not have to commute from the city of Suceava. This would be place for the children to come after school for a warm meal, to do homework, bible studies, English lessons, computer lessons and a safe, warm place to play especially in the winter.  This will also be a place for teams to stay on short term mission trips.  This desire has been confirmed by others who want a Christian presence in the village. Recently, we found out that there is a piece of land about the size of a soccer field near the village center for sale.  The cost is about $40K (based on the exchange rate).  Once the land is bought, we will be able to apply for grants from the EU to build the center, playground, etc.  Currently, the only things on the land are a well and the basement from the previous home.  We pray that God will provide the funds for the land if He wants us to have it.  Please pray for God’s wisdom and guidance on this issue for all of us.
