Today we want to share a praise. We jumped up yesterday to 76% of our monthly/ annual financial needs now met. Lord willing, we are praying that the rest of our needed financial partnership will be committed by the end of the year so we can move to Bucharest in early 2015 after our little guy is born. Thank you to all of you who are praying for Bucharest this month. Tomorrow is the city's 555th birthday.
Some of the least-loved people in Bucharest are found in the “placement centers” which house children and adults with severe disabilities. Conditions can be extremely poor and the vast majority have no one to visit them or keep track of their well-being. Government workers at these facilities are often sadly disinterested in the well-being of the residents.
- Ask God to bring hope to those who are forgotten, malnourished and mistreated.
- Pray for justice and change where there is corruption and negligence.
- Intercede for residents that they might have the opportunity to hear and experience the Gospel of Christ.
As Jesus passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.” ~ John 9:2-3
