Sheep Crossing!

Ovidiu Martin was out delivering Christmas gifts in the Romanian countryside when he came across this shepherd and his many sheep. It is a fun glimpse of winter in rural Romania! This farmer clearly has enough sheep, but many families are so needy that the gift of just one farm animal (a cow, or pig, or lamb) can change the fortunes of the family.  One load of firewood can mean the difference between suffering and comfort all winter long. Your gifts do make a difference and they are delivered with a smile and reminder of God’s love.  It’s not too late to give a gift that changes lives.

We are so thankful for your partnership all year long. With your help, and by God’s grace, so many needy children and families are receiving mercy. And we praise the Lord for how much He accomplishes each year through RCE! 2019 holds many challenges for us. But we know that God will be with us, and that He will show us the way forward and provide for all of our needs. We can’t wait to see what the Lord will do through RCE next year!

Christmas is a wonderful reminder of why love and mercy matter so much. Because of His great love and mercy, God sent Jesus to be born a man, to save us from our sins, and to redeem His creation. That redemption is going forth through RCE each and every day as broken lives are restored. And because of Christmas, we can know God as our Heavenly Father and rejoice together in His grace and goodness to us.

Merry Christmas and Thank You!
