News items & prayer

Heart of God: loving people
What a wonderful week we had, overflowing with blessings! We have collected some news items  for you, and yes, it's ALL good news at Traveling Light :)

Sunday August 4th an offering for our project sponsoring annual Teen Challenge conference in Ukraine was being held in the Hoeksteen church in Etten-Leur. In no time 3,000 euro came in. Everyone was so excited, we were all jumping for joy. Together with several other specified gifts we received, we were able to donate 3,100 euro to Teen Challenge Ukraine. One and a half week from now we will be traveling to Kiev and will experience first hand what your gifts have accomplished. Of course we will post an article and photo's of that visit. We want to sincerely thank you for your generosity and heartfelt response, also on behalf of Teen Challenge Ukraine. Please pray for a safe trip and a fruitful conference.

Going into the streets
Monday & Tuesday outreach event Code Red was being held in Amsterdam, organized by Victory home and Victory Outreach. The team went into the streets of the red light district to invite women for a special event. They were treated to a free lunch, theater, prayer, talk, dinner etc. The team had set up make-up and hair salons where the women were treated with love and dignity. What a great initiative; reaching out in love to those that are hurting, lonely and trapped in a destructive lifestyle. Yes, this is in our own country Holland! Let's pray this outreach will bear much fruit.

Wednesday there was a great article in one of our regional news papers about Traveling Light. The article was well written, personal, and very true to our mission. We are very thankful for positive press. The more people know about our projects, the more support we can expect... the more projects we can take on. Did you know you can help us too? Yes! Simply by spreading the word about Traveling Light through email, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+. Sharing is caring, and this positive news will spread like fire all over Europe. Please, pray for new supporters.

Thursday: the 1,000 euro for our project tractor lawn mower Spetse Hoeve is almost in, we still need 300 euro. We are so happy with all the gifts that came in already. If you want to help us out, please send your gift to:

Rabo bank nr. 1185 82 275 St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht
IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275

Next week we will announce a new project on this weblog: Project heater Teen Challenge Poland.
