Emergency medical and food needs arise often. The local churches
provide some of these needs but our help is urgent on various
Romanian preachers will do all the preaching in December
We were not able to provide the 50 food bags through the mayor’s
office, in December, 2011 for the first time in 12 years. No funds were
available, but we hope to resume this project this year.
The local churches provide funds as they are able for upkeep of their
meeting places, repair and maintenance. However in the past year or
two, U.S. brethren replaced all the 70 year old original windows and
doors in the Pitesti building, which we did not replace when we
remodeled the building 11 years ago, replaced the 11 year old heater
and remodeled the basement in Pitesti which has five classrooms.
Many other needs are pressing and will be done as Romanian and U.S.
funds are available.
