Mustard Seed Jersey Prayer Update January 2018
Let us begin with thanksgiving:
· We thank God that after delays the aid consignment including Christmas shoeboxes did finally arrive in Romania where they brought great joy.
· We thank God for the blessing that the team from St Pauls Church were to those they met.
· We join with Agape to give thanks that the final funding has come through to enable them to complete the purchase of their building on the outskirts of Oradea, Romania.
· We thank God that Helen Gunton has now been appointed as trustee of Mustard Seed Jersey and ask God’s blessing on her.
· We give thanks for some recent new volunteers for Mustard Seed Jersey.
Alongside of thanksgiving we bring our petitions and requests:
§ We pray blessing for the staff & students from Beaulieu whose trip to Romania in December was aborted due to weather conditions.
§ We pray for the many needs that challenged the group from St Pauls, especially families struggling without funds for firewood in temperatures below freezing, people unable to afford medication, light, basic repairs, etc. We pray for the Romanian social workers for wisdom sharing limited resources
§ We pray for a young woman who had previously been an Agape client who was self supporting until recently when she had an accident. After a spell in hospital she is now back living at the Agape house as she had no where else to go – clearly as she was unable to pay her rent it resulted in her losing her accommodation. Pray for her to receive the justice she is entitled to.
§ Pray God’s blessing on the Mustard Seed Jersey trustees and volunteers, pray for healing for some and their families – remember Peter & Glen in prayer.
§ For the Vineyard kindergarten in Cihei Romania, we pray for blessing on teacher Alina as she begins her maternity leave and for wisdom & guidance for Vasile and Florina as they find a replacement teacher.
§ We pray for wisdom and guidance for the ADPB residential home in Bihor county, Romania and for provision of needed resources.
§ In Jersey we now start to prepare for our planned aid consignment in March. In particular we lay before the Lord the long list of requests we received and we ask that He will supply what is needed.
Please do continue to pray for Mustard Seed Jersey and all the trusts we work with in Romania. We really do believe PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.
In His service
