As you know, in the month of December, John Militaru Ministries puts together goody bags for impoverished children in remote areas to enjoy during the holidays. These children sometimes barely have enough food and heat during the winter months, many of them wearing second hand clothing and shoes. They certainly don’t receive any presents like our children do here in the US and because of your generous support, our team is able to physically go into these remote, run-down areas and put a smile on a child’s face for Christmas. With the help of these goody bags, the parent’s of these precious kids heard the Word of God preached for the first time and MANY accepted Jesus in their hearts! What a wonderful opportunity we have as the body of Christ to be a hand extended for the Kingdom of God during the time of the year when we celebrate our Savior’s birth!
Thank you to all of you for partnering with us for this project and helping us fulfill our goal of over 4000 goody bags; 3000 in Romania and 1000 in the Republic of Moldova! This year we had the opportunity to visit new areas that have not yet heard about Jesus. YOU make it possible for us to reach these sweet people with the message of salvation through these goody bags. We were able to provide 5 tons of non-perishable food to these families also. We use these gifts and food as tools to be able to reach the forgotten ones and share with them the message of Jesus! That’s our ultimate goal each December and throughout the year—to reach people for Jesus. And although you could not physically go and assemble and hand-distribute these goody bags, you share the same reward as those of us who went (1 Sam. 30:24)! It’s not about who goes, it’s about how we allow God to use us and move through us that really matters. There is a light inside every believer that needs to shine brightly in this dark world like never before.
