Moldova (MNN) ― Little Samaritan Mission's recent visit to Suhat, Moldova came just in the nick of time.
Two hundred people welcomed the team, and within minutes the entire village found out that the Little Samaritan Mission team had arrived. Although welcomed for the last four years, the drought this year had been especially severe, and the people were suffering its effects.
The team's distribution of food and gifts from the Face of a Child Project were especially welcome.
A school partner said they were down to less than a week of food when Little Samaritan's aid and gifts from the "Face of a Child" came. The principal said, "This is an answer to our prayers. All the things that we received are important, but the food products were the most needed. We had food for just one week, and then we didn't know what would happen. The children found out about this situation, and at breakfast they asked me if they will have anything to eat for lunch. I knew how desperate our situation was so I couldn't look them in the eyes. Now I feel relieved. All the food we received now will last us the entire winter! We will bake bread with the flour and boil the dry fruits with water. This is a tasty meal for a hungry child!"
The gifts include Christian literature, but the love that accompanies them often opens the door for the Gospel. Printing and distributing Christian literature to orphans, poverty-stricken families, and adults eager to study God's Word has earned the Little Samaritan Mission an identity as an organization actively meeting the material needs of the children and the poor, while also proclaiming God's Word.
