More than ever, in this period of emergency caused by the pandemic, the foodpaks from CHF have been waited for with enthusiasm and great need! We have 15 families we visit as a church in this program and they live in 6 different villages.
Olanu family lives in Ursoaia village. The two girls, Cristina and Maria were very happy when they saw me, they came into my path as soon as I got down from the car. With gratitude, their mother told me how useful the foodpaks I took to them right before the emergency stated was inacted. Her husband is working remotely and he could not come home for a month so they were left without money.
On my last visit I gave the kids a children’s Bible and a normal Bible for their family. They told me she reads to the girls the children’s Bible but she can’t read the normal Bible because her husband Ionuț (Johnny) took it with him and he carries it everywhere, he even puts it under his head being convinced that this way things will go well for him. A was happy to see their openness for the Scripture but I
We hope we can form a house group at that address and start a Bible study group. We have been praying for this for the village of Ursoaia as there is no believer there.
Badaran family is a family from the local church that is very involved in ministry, especially in the administrative part but also in the mercy ministry. Sister Daniela Bădăran cleans the church and is also helped by her youngest daughter. She came to know the Lord by finding an evangelistic brochure dropped on the street and than her husband kicked her out of the house with 3 children because she became a believer and she did not want to have an abortion. That is how she ended up in village of Floru. Now her unborn daughter at that time helps her a lot, the only daughter that still lives with her as the rest have their own families. She has a part-time job that pays her 95 dollar a month and we as a church, for her service, give her almost 50 dollars a month. Her daughter is a goo student in high school and is a testimony for her classmates and teachers. She is also involved in children ministry too. Given their hard life, they are one of the families from the church we helped with the food CHF bought in country. They were very grateful not only to help other with the foodpaks but also to be themselves helped with this food in this hard times of pandemics.
With gratitude and joy,
Pastor Octavian (Tavi) Ciudesnic
