Christmas Boxes

Thank you Thank you Thank you–Multumesc, Multumim!  I have 257 box: 88 for boys, 104 for girl, 4 boy/girl, and 60 boxes that were made for specific children.   This year we did something new.  My mom asked me for names and ages of some kids so she could get some family members to sponsor children.  Well, her excitement grew and so did interest.  Soon, folks from Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York and all over North Carolina had asked for children.  I sent pictures and short stories about the children.  Now, some folks wouldn’t let the shoebox size limit them and the boxes are much bigger!  (My brother’s family being the biggest offender!!!!!!!!!) It shows how much the folks connected with their “kids” and how big their hearts are.  The recipients will love it and I wait to see how much trouble I’ll be in with the other kids.  There is some thing really special about getting a box with your name on it and finding a note inside written to you personally. Depending on the reaction from the kids and families, we may have to do this again next year!

I also want to say thank you to my home church: Church on the Cape in Wilmington, NC for the boxes they sent.  They are beautiful.  Thank you to all of you who sent boxes from PA.  You are a blessing to all of us here.  Each box was packed with love and a prayer and every child will be thrilled to get his or her own box.  Each person who made a box has shown love to my children here in Stroiesti; you have shown the love of Jesus Christ.  Thank you.

That moving box is the one from my brother's family!!!!!! But who's pointing fingers..oh wait, me!

We will be passing out boxes on Thursday, December 23rd at our Christmas program. The kids have learned Christmas carols, including one in English, and poems.  Ana and Ancuta wrote a poem call The Christmas Alphabet.  Please pray for us as we prepare for this special program. 

Thanks again for all the wonderful boxes. The kids are so excited to get them…they have been asking me for months!!! Merry Christmas.
