Monthly Prayer Notes

The Romanian Aid Foundation – June 2021

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.

The Horley team has assembled the next load. We hope that it will leave Billingshurst in June, once the documentation is complete. We await the opportunity to continue packing and sorting at Horley Baptist Church on Friday afternoons.
In south Wales, some 500 boxes are awaiting the outcome of the first load; hopefully this will clarify any need for repacking or relabelling them.
Both teams have many helpers and donors wishing to unload their homes of accumulated items, and we look forward to re-establishing our collecting and packing activities.

Give thanks …

1. For progress with packing and documentation despite the difficulties.

Please pray …

1. For continuity of support and enthusiasm as activities ramp up again.

Asociaţia Neemia – June 2021

In Dorohoi, AN has completed the compilation of the documents for the load from Billingshurst, and has submitted them to the customs authorities in Iasi. We are waiting for feedback and approvals, and then we can convey the authorisation to the Horley team. The experience of this first delivery under the new arrangements will help to determine how to move forward with future consignments.

We have been able to continue with our help for local people within the terms of the relevant restrictions, albeit at a reduced level compared with previous years due, in part, to declining stocks of suitable items. Despite this, we were able to help 142 families last month. The Romanian government is planning to lift most restrictions during June, but we cannot anticipate a return to the previous levels of activity just yet.

Give thanks …

1. For the resources to continue with helping people.
2. For good growing conditions and the willingness of the residents to help provide for their upkeep.

Please pray …

1. For the rapid approval of our transport documents.
2. For the continued health and safety of our team.
