"Children without families are the most vulnerable people in the world" - Brooke Randolph The House of Hope It was a rainy day and the rain drops were drumming hard against the window. Our small meeting room had a sign and that distinct smell of the long passed soviet era. It was an old room in desperate need of a facelift. The director of the boarding school was seating behind her tired desk, piled with all sorts of paperwork. The clutter was unavoidable. She had been there a long time. A long-time mother for hundreds of forsaken kids. Her [...]
Our Dear Friends, Please would you pray for my travels and upcoming ministry in UK and checking on the Orphanages in Eastern Europe. I fly out tonight on Emirates to London and leave on February 21st and arrive back in Brisbane on 22nd February. Please pray for Margurita as she stays home and runs the office and administration. I would greatly appreciate that. I will be checking on a number of the orphanages, especially in the Odessa and Zhytomyr regions (minus temperatures there) where heating, medicines and supplements are needed at this time for the children’s [...]
Please continue to stay with us in prayer for God’s help, to pay for heating and food provision for these precious children in Gardene (Latvia) through this difficult winter. We appreciate your kind help very much, thank you for that.
What did Moses do when people of Israel stood against him? He still believed what God had promised. So to calm the people he said to them: “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord” (Exodus 14). Even in our darkest hours we can trust the Lord and see His rescue! We are praying that God will bring a tremendous breakthrough and great victory into your area of need this weekend. God bless you richly.
Proverbs 14:31 “He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who honours him has mercy on the needy.” Let's honour the Maker by showing mercy on someone in great need today! The Child Care Centre in Gardene, Latvia led by a wonderful lady pastor, Marija Silkina and her compassionate workers each day care for and feed the poor of the area, as well as orphans, homeless kids, and the needy children of single mothers. These poor young mothers, who have to work each day, would normally have nowhere to leave their children. Pastor Marija and her workers are [...]
He is part of a family of eleven children. They live in a rundown, ugly, former movie theatre in one of the remote areas of Riga. The building is so rotten and old that when they went in as a family to live there no one really cared. This is one of the buildings in which you really pray that the roof will not collapse while you are inside. A terrible place. However the family stuck together. Two of the older boys developed mid-stage schizophrenia. Most of the other kids have asthma and other illnesses. Government allowance for this family [...]
Psalm 9:18 “For the needy shall not always be forgotten; the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.” This is also a busy time in preparing for the start of the new school year in September where we need to provide school requisites and study materials for the orphans. Would you please pray with us these needs to be meet! Thank you so much.
