Monthly Prayer Notes

The Romanian Aid Foundation – June 2019

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.
Plans are being finalised for two deliveries to Dorohoi this month. On the 13th, Richard and Linda will leave Lampeter taking a load full of items from west Wales, Richard’s 100th aid delivery to Romania. The Horley team will be sending a truck from the Billingshurst warehouse on the 29th June. Packing volunteers are always appreciated at both locations.

Give thanks …

1. For the continuing supply of useful items being offered to our teams.
2. For Richard’s 100 incident-filled but disaster-free trips.
3. For another two tons of rice and oil from a charity in Wales.

Please pray …

1. For a clear understanding of how Brexit will affect our aid deliveries.
2. For safety and God-speed for this month’s lorries.
3. About our warehousing activities, staff and buildings alike.

Asociaţia Neemia – June 2019

Catalin Tudosanu lives in a village some 20 miles east of Dorohoi. He has been a cripple for many years but always has a positive attitude. He works as a cobbler and his primary means of transport has been an old hand-propelled tricycle. Now, following the arrival of surfaced roads in the village, the use of a mobility scooter becomes a realistic option. Our team in west Wales was able to source one and Catalin is delighted.
Most of the items that we donate are things like clothing, food and household essentials but from time to time we do get offered larger items. Another such donation was a large larder-fridge which completed the final part of its journey to Sendriceni on a horse-drawn cart.
The preparations for the annual children’s camp are underway. The camp is in the eastern foothills of the Carpathian range and is operated with a Christian ethos. We usually take about 40 children aged 10-15, selected mainly from those families registered with AN, plus a few ‘Church’ children to show them the ropes. Our group will be there at the same time as a number of children supported by Dorohoi social services, and there is usually good interaction between the two groups. Once again the camp accommodation has been sponsored by our south Wales team and the Horley team has agreed to cover the cost of transport.
Security cameras have been installed at Casa Neemia. These cover access to the building and the surrounding area but do not intrude on the privacy of the residents. The images can be viewed remotely which Beni finds useful for checking whether the polytunnel has been closed properly!

Give thanks …

1. For warm temperatures and plenty of rain which have given a good start to the growing season.
2. For the resources to make 183 donations to households during May.

Please pray …

1. For the children’s camp taking place during the 17th-22nd of this month; for those with leadership responsibilities and for a safe and happy time for the children.
2. About the current political instability in both Romania and the UK.
