Children with a passion for mission
Moldova, Republic of | OM InternationalThere’s one thing a child of missionaries is certain to possess: a children’s Bible. In contrast, many Moldovan children have never held a children’s Bible, let alone owned one.
When OM Moldova came up with a project to bless hundreds of Moldovan children with a Bible, the kids of the families on the OM team got involved with great enthusiasm to raise money that would enable their peers to read about Jesus. Some made video clips, others wrote to the Sunday school group of their sending church and others sold handmade Christmas cards. Later, the kids helped distribute Bibles to children in villages who usually have no access to literature.
One child on the team, Hanna, 11, said, “When we had enough money we bought the Bibles and went to a village called Ialpug. We were able to go to the school and talk to the children there. It was so much fun because there were over 50 children! Each family was given a Russian children’s Bible, because everyone in that village speaks Russian.”
On the Orthodox Christmas, they visited another village to give out Bibles. “Lots of people all squashed into someone’s house and we had a service with songs and poems and preaching,” said Hanna. “We gave out Bibles, Christmas presents and sweets to the children.” Praise God that so many received Bibles. Please pray that these people will find hope in Christ as they read the Bible.
