This past trip to the states was the most fruitful ever. We now have 7 churches behind the work we are doing here. Sue Volpe was able to share at a different church every Sunday as well as several small groups and at the God’s heart for Justice event. The big news is that we received enough one-time gifts to pay a national to be a ministry assistant for the next 14 months. And for the first time ever we have 90% of our monthly needs committed. (Still needing $176 per month to be at 100%).
We have put some feelers out there about our need for an assistant and we are hopeful God with bring us the right person through ministry partners. If not we will place an ad on christian radio. Please pray for the right person who is equipped to deal with our ladies’ trauma.
Alina has an 18 year-old sister who is pregnant. She has toxoplasmosis which is very dangerous for an unborn baby. She is not a christian but she asked us all to pray for her before heading to another city for amniocentesis. The ministry helped with the cost of the test and when I met her to give her the money, I was able to pray for her. When I left her I felt very emotional but in a hopeful sense. Later she called to tell us the baby was normal, and I knew then that the hope and peace I had felt was because of the prayers prayed. Both her and Alina believe it was a miracle. She asked that we continue to pray for her throughout her pregnancy…please join us in that.
Please continue to pray for all the moms that we have had the privilege to minister too. Those mentioned to the left as well as Felicia and her daughter Sofia, Mama “L” and her little man, Alexandra and her son that has been adopted, and Geta and her girls, Rebeca and Abigail.
Finally please pray for me, Sue Volpe, for discernment and supernatural strength. The restoration phase of the ministry is emotional taxing and ministering in a second language makes it even harder. Patience is so necessary to help them see their need to deal with the trauma of being raise in an institution and to see how it will effect their children if they don’t.
