Good Morning Everyone,

We are so thankful to let you know that we have received almost $9000 in relief for both Haiti and Albania! Thank you so much!

We continue to hear how difficult things have become in both countries so our efforts will continue until we see that things have returned to “their normal”. 

Some of the relief in Haiti is being given to our friend Mode and her husband Jean Claude, who is a pastor of many churches around PAP. There is very limited food and what is available is very expensive. The relief money so far given to their community is providing food kits that help feed their families for two weeks at a time as well as sanitary kits that help them with hand washing.

It is so hard for us to imagine what the people of Haiti are enduring right now. With very little medical, food prices that make buying anything unattainable, lack of so many provisions… the list goes on and on. Your support is is enabling people to live another day. The support of the Christian churches are breathing life into some who have been spiritually dead, because now they see Jesus through the provisions and are committing their lives to Him!

 

At the same time, our families in Lac’ajue are also being given another day to live and worship Jesus because of the outpouring of the donations being given. Support for both food and fuel is now provided through September because of the donations that have come into the relief account. Thank you! And because of the support, our friends and families are able to share their thankful hearts with others and spread the Gospel to those who are not yet followers of Jesus.

Each day Joseph visits two homes to have a time of prayer and to gather together in small groups to thank God for His provision. Many mornings during the week a group travels miles to a mountain top to pray for us, those in NJ, who they love, that we would be protected from the virus. This is so humbling, knowing all that they are enduring day to day.

 

And our friends in Albania, who have also received donations for their food bundles, continue to preach the Gospel to the Muslims in their towns, and many are receiving Jesus! They are seeing Jesus through the provisions and the joy of those who are bringing the provisions to them.

Along with the provisions, SOFM has committed to providing the funding for their summer bible camp and youth camp again this year. It is at a cost of $4000 to provide for both. We have witnessed the fruit of many Muslims coming to Jesus through these camps and believe that this year there will be even more putting their faith in Jesus because of the dire conditions of the country.

Your support goes directly to the needs that it is designated for and we thank you so much for your support and your prayers! If you or a friend would like to support the relief efforts or the summer camps in Albania, you can do so through our paypal or send a check to:

Here is an update from Albania, Haiti and Brick, NJ…

In Albania…

Your support has helped to put together food bundles for Albanians hardest hit, many having not seen anyone in months, others having reached a life or death situation… Here are some pictures of a family receiving the food bundles and a short video of the food bundles being put together.

In Haiti…

Joseph has been walking from village home to village home…miles, to give out the rice and beans provided through Grains of Grace Feeding Program…through your support!

He is also bring small groups of his church up to a mountain every morning, walking for an hour, to go off and pray for God’s protection from the virus, especially in Ounaminthe. God is protecting this area and there are no cases!

 

And in Brick NJ

Many are coming together to stay connected with our families in the Maple Leaf Community. SOFM, True Life and Shore Fresh Restaurant went over this week and through the generosity of Shore Fresh, provided 38 to-go meals to some of the families.

 

During this time of uncertainty, it is such a blessing to see God’s people denying themselves and stepping into this crisis in so many ways.  We appreciate all of you and ask that you continue to pray for us and for the wisdom to keep being Jesus’ hands and feet in this world.

During this difficult time in our history, God is still on the throne and using all things for His good. Because of people like you, who have given through SOFM for the Albania Food Bundles, we were told of one man whose life has been completely changed.

This man lives alone and is 80 years old. He has nobody in his life. He lives on a pig farm and for six months nobody has come to visit him. Yesterday Geno and others walked up to his dwelling with a food bundle. It was snowing and very cold both outside and inside his home because he doesn’t have any heat. The man cried for a half hour when he saw our friends from Pastor Plator’s church(es) coming to see him and bringing food. The man told them that he was so thankful but didn’t have anything to cook with. He told Geno that it would be a miracle for him to live through the winter. Aside from the food that was given to him, Pastor Plator will return today and bring a stove so that he can cook and have some heat in his home.

This is only one of many stories that will be spoken because of the generosity of those giving to our Albania Relief efforts. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This man was lost, lonely and hopeless, but God stepped in through this unthinkable time and brought pastors to his door step with food, warmth and the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Please keep praying for Pastor Plator and all those helping him to distribute the food through out the remote villages trying to connect with those most in need.

If you would like to help you can do so through our Paypal account under Ways To Give.

Thank you!
