In times of crisis and despair, the blessing of the Lord is on those who live according to His precepts. Human values on relationship and love can suddenly be removed. It is then we find the true meaning and value of faith, trust, knowing that His goodness will follow us all the days of our life. His word, His soft whisper, His presence in the lonely hours is our light, our guide, to the true and valued meaning of life.
There is a softness in Manuela’s love for her darling Andreea, even in these early days of pain and loss, her
love is strong. I Cor 13: 7 ‘Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance’.
Manuela has found the Source of such love is to be found in the heart of God. Hold Manuela and Baby Andreea in the centre of your heart.
Manuela shared how God had worked even through the ‘home call’ of Andrei. During their time of ministry they were able to find acceptance in the local orphanage. Regular bible classes were held there and the children were brought by Manuela to church on Sundays. One of the staff often was in their home. When Andrei died in the accident the lady committed her life to Christ and still continues to bring the children to church. She is being baptized next Sunday. God’s Saving Grace has shone through.
‘Please thank the kind people who sent love gifts for my daughter and I’.
