October, 2015

I went for a walk a little after 6:00 this morning back here in Norton (MA), shed some tears thinking of the beautiful snow-capped Carpathian Mts. (Transylvanian Alps) that I had left behind, and my babies and ‘kids’, and dear friends . . . But mostly, I thanked the Lord for all that He had done for us – for our precious ones, the past 3 months in ‘the other land that I love’. God is good! All the time!

The latest news is that the day before I had to leave Brasov, because of your generosity, I was able to buy water-proof winter boots for the ‘kids’ at Barza Mica. Also, I learned that the roof is going up on our church, Canaan, in Halchiu. I wish I could have seen it completed, but it wasn’t in God’s plan for it to happen before I left Romania. Ovi will keep me updated through pictures, though.

On faith, we have ordered the doors and windows in order to get them installed before Winter. I just know that God will provide. Then the men will be able to work inside throughout the cold months with the precious (Roma) Gypsy folks being able to worship in their own church in the Spring. (No more bars!) 

Also, you responded amazingly so with the sweaters. THANK you!! Enough will be shipped out this week (week of October 11) for my ‘kids’ at Barza Mica to look real presentable at Christmas-time – AND to keep them snuggly warm! The rest will be shipped out via the Romanian shipping company in Troy, MI in time for winter.

Look for the updates once a month, Lord willing, to see how God continues to work through Love From Above Ministries – HIS work in Romania.
