MOLDOVA—Missionary work is a manifestation of love and sympathy of the material hardships of others and to the suffering that exists in the world. This was the conclusion reached by the brethren in South Moldova in early December when they developed the missionary project "Material Gifts and Spiritual Gifts."
Two locations were targeted: one in Galaţi, another in the Bacau county. Thanks to the generosity of the brethren over 650 food parcels containing food and present truths were distributed by volunteers showing their love for their neighbors.
After two days we noticed a greater need than we could have imagined. We saw much suffering and little knowledge of God. So we decided to go back and give greater attention to a few special cases. We returned with more food to meet basic needs and with noise! Yes, the sound of a chainsaw that was only turned off when the sun had set and when the last timber in the yard of a paralyzed man was cut down. We also took Bibles and Sabbath Bible Lessons for children to a home caring for six children.
God bless this work and may He provide further occasions through which we may help others and have wonderful experiences with Him.
