Photo's project heating system Teen Challenge Macedonia

Firewood ...

We thought it would be fun to start the new year with some pictures of our project heating system Teen Challenge Macedonia. Back in November 2012 (yeah, it is not that long ago) we asked your help for the purchase of a new wood heating system at the house/office of Teen Challenge Macedonia.

The gifts came in like a flood and quite soon after our appeal we were able to donate 2,500 euro for this cause. Within a few weeks we received some pictures from Jonatan Vlaisavljevic... and, well, they speak for themselves.

New water heater
They were able to lay their hands on a huge stack of firewood and in the meantime someone came to install the new wood heater, water heater and necessary pipelines. As in most Eastern European countries the central heating system in the house is now operating through a wood heater that warms up the water heater. This is much more economical than electric heating.

Happy or what?
Thanks to your quick response and generosity they were able to install this new system. Later this month we hope to be in Skopje for a few days, so we will be able to see it with our own eyes. Hopefully we will be able to share some more news and prayer points about the outreach work in Macedonia. Keep an eye on this blog if you don't want to miss any updates. Do you know that you can sign up for updates by email? Please, check the right side of this blog.

PS: What a glorious beginning of a new year! In one week we received more than 4,000 euro (!) towards our project fence Onyfrievka, Ukraine. WOW! There have been some fun events over Christmas that brought in a lot of money, we will share a bit about this in the next blog post.

We hope and pray you will continue to support Traveling Light in 2013!
