If you followed this blog while our team was in Moldova earlier this month, you know that we encountered some unexpected problems with the Transnistrian customs department that prevented our team from actually assembling the beds while we were there. Of course we were all very sad about this, but it did present a unique opportunity for a local church and the orphanage staff to be more involved in the project than they normally would be since it would be left to them to assemble the beds once final approval came from the customs department.
Well, that day finally came on Tuesday of this week, and the beds were built! Members of the Bread of Life church in Dubasari, the orphanage staff, Felix (the carpenter who makes the bed frames) and some of his guys, and our wonderful Moldovan Sweet Sleep staffer Lucia all worked together on Tuesday to assemble all the beds. It’s great to know that the sweet children in Dubasari now have these new beds to sleep in.
Thank you all for the prayers that have been prayed over these beds. God is good.
