Photo's and project news

December is always a pleasant and busy month for Traveling Light. It is a time for thanksgiving, we look back on past projects and we plan for 2016. Next Saturday we are holding our first winter fair. A fundraiser for all our wonderful projects!

Project Christmas gifts for sailors is in full swing and for project lawn mower tractor for Teen Challenge in Serbia we have already received a considerable amount. We are almost there, but not quite yet :)

official opening girl's home, Moldova
Thank you for your donations which enable us to support the many small and large projects in a very practical and direct way! We currently have more than 10 projects waiting in queue ... but let's not forget to look back.

Saturday November 14th the girls' home in Moldova was officially opened. What a beautiful place it has become. A safe place for girls and women who are being rescued from human trafficking.

New, clean rooms in crisis shelter Baranovichi
Partly because of your donations this place is now a true home. Recently we received a number of specified gifts for the girls'home, so this week we were able to donate another 1,000 euros for the further furnishing of the house.

Also, we received photo's and a happy and thankful e-mail from Baranovichi, Belarus. The women's shelter is nearly finished. The rooms are furnished, there is a nice shower room and a communal living room.
Professional equipment for the Baranovichi shelter

The kitchen, which will also be used for the adjacent men's rehabilitation center and the homeless shelter, is also starting to look like something. They were able to acquire quite a few professional kitchen appliances, thanks to a donation we were able to send them in September.

Andrii Soloviov (the director of rehabilitation center Istochnick, near Sevastopol) is still working hard on his studies at the Moscow State University, writing his thesis. We are very proud of him!

Andrii at work
We ask your prayers for Andrii and his family, mainly because he needs to undergo an operation on a tumor in his head. He needs to go to Novosibirsk, Siberia for this. Of course this will effect his study plans... at least for the time being. We feel we must share this with you all. Please pray for a good outcome!

Yes, we do receive serious e-mails like this one, and many happy messages, photos and newsletters as well. All showing that donations go much further than we dare to hope or expect ....

We are investing in people's lives, an investment that has eternal value!
