    It’s back-to-school time in Romania, and some of the children in the Romanian village at 44.73ºN, 25.22E (however you spell it) are in need of school supplies. There are only a couple weeks until they need to be ready for class, and we’d like to see all 34 of the village children outfitted for a successful school year.

    There is progress in construction at Friendship Camp, and—praise God!—the Stones are well on the mend.

    The Christmas Market Mission Trip is still on the calendar for November 27–December 8. Hurry and sign up!

  • UPDATE May 2020

    This issue brings reports from cities around the world: Chillán, Arad, Șiștarovăț, Pătroaia and Nampa. People everywhere are finding themselves affected by COVID-19—if not the virus, then the government reaction to it.

    There is much to pray about. That’s why we’ve included at least two distinct prayer lists, and alluded to many other needs.

    Here’s your link to the May issue.
