The Christmas season has at last become a special time for the children since they started receiving support through MWB. Last year, a fun Christmas show helped them understand what Christmas is all about – and they even received Christmas presents.
When a MWB staff member arrives at their house with an Operation Christmas Love (OCL) parcel, the four of them are filled with excitement. MWB’s OCL boxes contain basic food supplies, treats and gifts to help lift the pressure off families struggling with poverty at this important time of year.
Four heads clothed in woolly hats eagerly lean over the box as they pull the items out, seeing what is inside.
Dorina shouts happily, “Look, badea! [the Moldovan word for ‘older brother’]. Chocolate!”
“Wow!” says her brother, and opens it immediately, sharing it out between the four of them.
“Look at this – we can eat porridge tomorrow morning – I like it so much!” says Nicholae as they all happily eat.
Children like Adrian, Nicolae, Dorina, and Ion would not experience the joy of Christmas at all without MWB – and through the help of our supporters, many more children and families in poverty can be blessed at Christmas time with food, gifts and the message of God’s love shown in Christ.
And beyond Christmas, throughout the year, Adrian and his siblings will receive the support they need to know God’s loving provision and his plans for a hope and a future for each one of them.
