Activities and project news

This week Sokrat and Lena Apostolovski from Macedonia will be visiting us. They will be flying into the Netherlands and are planning to buy a good second-hand 9-passenger van (with Jan's technical assistance) and drive it back. They could really use a good vehicle for the transportation of the Roma children to and from Saraj church, kids club, school, etc.

Saturday we are organizing a special mission evening with Sokrat and Lena in our second-hand shop tWinkeltje. They will tell about their work among the Roma people and of course show some pictures. You are welcome to join us for an inspiring evening. The coffee is ready at 7:30 pm. The proceeds over the month of March in our second-hand shop will also benefit the work Sokrat & Lena are doing in Macedonia.

Proceeds of sales and workshops in February were also good for 1,000 euro. We were able to give that as a donation to Michael and Janet van Boxtel. They are the founders of the non-profit organization Embrace. Michael an Janet and their children work among the poorest in Hungary. Thank you to everyone who made it possible.

Bible school under construction + baptismal font outside
Dear friends, project Bibles and cows had a good start, we already received 2,000 euro in donations and we would really like to be able to double it!

A very special piece of news is that Marja's book Grace of Giving has been translated into Farsi and will be printed soon. It will be a great tool at the Bible school and a powerful handout. Will you please pray for the completion of the school, the distribution of the books and also for protection of believers in that region?

This week we received messages and photos from Italy and Belarus, more about that soon. We will also ask for photos of the work at the woman's center in Batumi, Georgia. Once we have some news, we'll write a blog post about it.

We will gladly continue to support all these wonderful projects, but we can only do so with your help. Within Europe make gifts payable to: St. Traveling Light, Papendrecht IBAN: NL91RABO0118582275 BIC: RABONL2U.
