July 25th – Special Day of Prayer
Our hearts are heavy as we see the continued impact of the COVID virus and its restrictions on the children of Romania. One of the hardest-hit places in our ministry was the Feeding Center Program.
The Feeding Center Program has always been a primary avenue our ministry used to meet children’s physical and spiritual needs in remote villages. But all that changed with COVID. Pandemic lockdowns forced all feeding centers to close. While we adapted and began giving families our new “family packs,” which included food, hygiene, and safety items, the children of these families still suffered.
You see, the feeding centers did so much more than give a hot meal daily. The caring volunteers also created and conducted Bible lessons (most of the children come from families that do not attend church) and tutored with homework. They were a source of encouragement to these children and an example of the love of Christ. Many of these children are now suffering from not having that encouragement or help with schoolwork. These children desperately need Spiritual guidance, encouragement, and a hot meal daily if they are going to break the chains of poverty that bind them.
There is power in prayer, and we want to ask our BOL family to join us in a special time of prayer for this need. Would you and your church join us on July 25th to bring this need to God. Our specific prayer is that God will make provision for us to reopen our feeding centers soon or provide another way to reach these children. We know this is not impossible for our God. Join us in prayer on July 25th and then continue to pray for these little ones that have no one else to stand for them, as God brings them to mind.
