Just before Sue Volpe was heading to the US for some much needed fundraising. We became aware of two pregnant girls here in our local orphanage. Being presented with this need and the lack of options to these girls. We prayed about changing the focus of Soar Romanian to care for expecting mothers. God made it very clear, not only to Sue while she was in the States, but also to Miha our Director of Educations and Spirituals Program. Shortly after Sue returned, we took in our first resident, Alexandra. She was with us until her baby was 5 weeks old. We have little information about her, but her son is in foster care; praise the Lord.
Alina came to us not even a month after Alexandra’s departure. As you know, she is still with us and is planning on finishing university in May. Her little Victoria is a beautiful 4.5-month old and a testimony to our faithful prayers that she would be born healthy. Felicia with her daughter, Sofia, moved in with us the day after Victoria was born for a set 4 month period. We want to continue to be involved in their life and are praying about volunteering at the state facility where they are living now. In addition to our regular parenting & life skills program, our fellow missionary, Mike Foster, has been teaching a weekly Bible study. This has brought a new perspective of God’s love mercy and justice.
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard, “Where God guides; God Provides” in my 20 years in the Church, but I can tell you…it is so true. With very little monthly support, God not only provided the funds to sustain the ministry, but additional gifts of $4475 to completely furnish the apartment (not included in the summary below). Please join us in prayer for continued provision and for expansion into a house by next year.
