hello great friends, family and prayer partners…etc!
just a quick note to let you all know things are going great! today was coat day….this was amazing.
for those of you who don’t know….EMI CMG (EMI Christian Music Group–see more on our website) partnered with Sweet Sleep this Christmas to provide winter coats for the children in both of the orphanages….1,040 coats in total. Praise God…that is so amazing.
the children in falesti completely loved getting new coats. tomorrow we’ll post pictures of the event so you can begin to imagine how amazing this was. children were squeeling, jumping up and down, throwing their heads back in laughter and hugging each other. one child was so amazed when he saw the new coats he just dropped what he had in his hands and kept saying, “wow” again and again—his eyes getting bigger each time. it was absolutely wonderful!
brian sims, the deaf pastor of brentwood baptist deaf church, arrived in moldova tonight. tomorrow we’ll start to investigate ministry opportunities for the deaf in moldova, including a deaf orphanage in the south. please be in prayer for all the challenges that come with this.
our team is still in falesti and will be leaving a place they’ve quickly grown to love. please also remember them and the children in your prayers as they leave and travel to chisinau.
monday we’ll have our first day at the orphanage in chisinau. we’re also planning to distribute coats to the children there. that should be another great day!
thanks for your postings and your prayers…..keep them coming!
stay tuned for more from our team…and, pictures!
