Children with a passion for mission
Moldova, Republic of | OM InternationalGrowing up in a missionary family there is one thing you are certain to possess: a Children’s Bible. In contrast, many Moldovan children have never held a Children’s Bible in their hands, let alone owned one (or even owned any book at all). When OM Moldova came up with a project to bless hundreds of Moldovan children with a Bible, the children of the families on the team got involved with great enthusiasm to raise money that would enable their peers to read about Jesus. First they came up with creative ways of fundraising – some made video clips, others wrote to the Sunday School group of their sending church or sold handmade Christmas cards. Later on they also got involved in distributing the Bibles to children in villages that usually have no access to literature.
Hanna (11 years) sent us a report about her trip:
We were very excited when people gave money for the Children’s Bibles Project!
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.
Mummy went to visit children at the hospital and gave them Bibles. She went to the Heart Unit and the Cancer Unit – we couldn’t go because children are not allowed to visit the sick children. The children and their mums were really happy to have something nice to read while they are in hospital.
On Orthodox Christmas we all went to Vanator Village and gave out Bibles there, too.
We really enjoyed it!!! Lots of people all squashed into someone’s house and we had a service with songs and poems and preaching. We gave out Bibles, Christmas Presents and sweets to the children.
Thank you for helping with this project!
