Project insulation girl's home and church, Moldova

It has been two years already since we visited Johannes and Charlotte Petersen in Moldova.

They are the founders of Pilgrims International and have lived in Moldova for almost 25 years. Unfortunately, there has been no opportunity to visit them this year šŸ˜­

In addition to churches and rehab centers, Johannes and Charlotte also founded a girls' home, a safe place for girls who were in life-threatening situations (such as human trafficking).

In the past, we have been able to give financial gifts for the construction of the girl's home 'Pilgrim House'.

That work has now been expanded and since last year there is also a Pilgrim House 2. An apartment with room for more girls, situated in the same building where the church is located. When we were there, everything was still under construction.

Funds are currently being collected to insulate that building. Last winter (the first winter for the girls in Pilgrim House 2) there were problems with moisture and mold. External insulation with 100 mm fireproof polystyrene is the solution in this case., which will also help to keep the utility bill low.

At the same time, the facade will be reconstructed so that the church entrance can be moved to the front of the building (which is a bit friendlier of course). This will also be the entrance to the children's and youth clubs, a coffee house, and spaces where more activities can take place.

Work has already begun at the rear of the building. The work is being carried out by local contractors and hopefully this job will also provide a great opportunity to introduce them to the good news!
