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

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.
