Chairman's Report - Fall 2012
During our most recent visit to Romania, Don Nourse (a follow board member and past Chairman) and I experienced great joy and thanksgiving as we participated in the dedication of the new church with John Ungureanu. The Love for Romania mission of hope and love to the poor and needy in Northeast Romania is active and full of GOD-sized opportunities. Everything we have heard from John is "much more" in everyway! The poor are so very poor and need wood, medicine and food to make it through the upcoming bitter winter months.
John’s mission reports are filled with thanksgiving, praise for GOD'S provision and opportunity for all those who are led by the Holy Spirit to become a partner in the ministry of Love for Romania. This Christ-centered ministry has become a living and active example of GOD’S love for the poor and needy. We are true partners in this important ministry and ask that you would continue to pray for and financially support John’s efforts in Romania.
We have a special assignment of love and compassion that only GOD can bring about. We must trust Him for all our needs. We are very excited about how His Spirit has led us to where we are today. With the completion of the new church we now have a "Mother Ship" for John's ministry efforts in Northeast Romania.
The Board of Love for Romania is committed to this Christ-focused ministry to the poor widows and children who have no hope without the love of Jesus Christ. Once you have seen the joy brought through the loving touch of Jesus Christ in these needy people’s lives you are changed forever. I will never forget the sights and smells, the stunning impact of poverty that helped me better understand how much GOD has blessed us and how easy it is to forget how He wants us to manage the financial blessings He provides.
So please pray and consider how you might partner with us in this Christ-centered undertaking of love and mercy.
Your brother and partner in the ministry and hope of Jesus Christ,
Gene Rhodes, Chairman
Love for Romania
