First Sabbath Offering for the “Eden” Health Center, Breaza, Romania

By God’s grace, the “Eden” Health Center in Romania opened its doors nearly 25 years ago. Over the years, this institution has offered both physical and spiritual relief for the suffering, being an oasis where people burdened with suffering have come in contact with both our spiritual and our health teachings. The work here is one of seed-sowing, which God brings to growth and fruit-bearing in His time.

As a result of general changes in laws throughout Europe, along with some violent building fires in Romania which resulted in many lives lost, the legislation regarding fire security has significantly changed over the last six years, enforcing much stricter measures. In our institution, steps have been taken to implement the legislative demands which greatly exceed our financial possibilities. Generous brethren from Romania as well as other parts of Europe and the United States, knowing our needs, have promptly helped according to their ability, sending money for the advancement of the work. But the needs are still very great. Therefore, we appeal to your generosity, dear brethren from all over the world, to kindly help with the remodeling of this medical missionary center so that it can continue its activity unhindered by inspections, restrictions, or fines from the local authorities.

“The work of God is to become more extensive, and if His people follow His counsel, there will not be much means in their possession to be consumed in the final conflagration. All will have laid up their treasure where moth and rust cannot corrupt; and the heart will not have a cord to bind it to earth.”—Testimonies for the Church, vol. 1, p. 197.

In view of the needs of the times, let us do our utmost to help those around us while we still are able. “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:7, 8). May God bless the gifts and the givers!

Your brethren from the “Eden” Health Center, Breaza, Romania
