Monthly Prayer Notes

The Romanian Aid Foundation – May 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.
A generous legacy from the estate of John Andrew has allowed RoAF to fund the much-awaited replacement for AN’s Kangoo – more info overleaf.
Goods for the needy in Romania come to us from a variety of sources – individuals giving their items, lost property collections, other charities’ left-overs, surplus stock, misprints, etc. These are all sorted, packed, transported and given out to those who can make good use of them. Our thanks to all those who help to make it all come together.

Give thanks …

1. For God’s guidance through the provision and timing of funding.
2. For those who continue to give for the well-being of others.

Please pray …

1. For a clearer understanding of how Brexit may affect our aid deliveries.
2. For the timing of the next lorries, in the light of this uncertainty.

Asociaţia Neemia – May 2019

The big news this month has been the acquisition of a replacement for our Renault Kangoo 4×4. The Kangoo has served us well for many years but the rigours of the work here and the increasing frequency of repairs mean that it will soon be time to retire it. The particular combination of seats, cargo space and 4×4 is not readily available on the second-hand market and the search for a replacement has been continent-wide. A suitable vehicle was located in Belgium and brought back to Dorohoi – it will commence active service once the paperwork is complete.

Last month we provided goods to a total of 182 households using items donated in the UK and forwarded by our teams. We receive typically 12-15 visitors per day asking for a wide variety of items, in addition to those whose needs are financial; help with medical costs, energy bills, etc. We cannot satisfy all these requests – recent shortages include men’s trousers and spectacles – but we have been able to provide decorating materials and carpet tiles in addition to the usual range of clothes and food. We have also been able to install a video screen in the office so that our visitors can watch a Christian TV channel during their visit.

For the past four years our colleagues in south Wales have sponsored a number of places at a children’s summer camp, in order to provide some holidays for the children of our beneficiary families. This year the camp dates are 17-22 June, the first week of the school holidays. Already we have had enquiries from parents eager to get their children on the list.

Give thanks …

1. For funding for a replacement vehicle and for guidance during the search for a suitable candidate.
2. For the continued supply of goods from our UK partners which is essential in order to sustain our help for the needy in this area.

Please pray …

1. For discretion as we compile the list of children for this year’s camp.
2. For renewed strength and health for the AN team and their families.
3. For a straightforward completion of the new vehicle’s re-documentation and registration in AN’s name.
