Vraag van Cristi

Dear Mr. Maarten,

Hope you are ok and so is family and your team too.

I am a bit busy with the fountain. It makes too much sand from the deep and that is blocking the filters a lot. So tomorrow I will have the pump 20 more meters down. So it will be at 100 meters. Hope this will solve the problem.

 But the reason I am writing to you is to ask you if you have any shoe boxes with gifts for children. I know I have received a few from you  in the past but I need a bit more if it is possible.

 I will explain you why.

 First project :  We can go to 2 schools in villages here and take the youth from my church and make a kind of a small concert with carols singing.

 I can take a group of 25 youth from the church and we will go in 2 villages and we will sing for like 20 minutes and then I will take my pastor if he is free , or I will talk a for minutes , like 10 or less and tell them what Christmas is about. Then we can give gifts to the small children , the ones under 14 years of age.

 I have this on my heart for like 1 week or more and maybe it is a good project to show them the Gospel and tell the children about Christ. We can gather the whole school and the teachers and the director , and the mayor and we can do this.

Second project:   Also I can talk to the school director and ask them to tell me what are the poorest families in the village and then we can have a second meeting in the school sport court and this time we do the same but with pore families.

Third project:   I would like to do the same but for the old people azilum that I took you in the village. For this project I involve the children from Casa Ioana and  I plan to take all of them and they will make some nice cards for them and we will sing and also talk a bit about Christmas meaning.

Benefit of this :

1.  Help pore children
2. Help pore families
3. Proclaiming the Gospel of Christ.
4. Bring joy to quite a few of families and children and old people that are alone.

 So last year I had Christmas shoe  boxes from the Austrian church. But this year they do not respond. I do not know what is happening.

So if you know any charities who do this , it would be great if we can get some . I know I am asking a lot. But maybe you have the info and you can help me pointing me to the right direction.

There is a small church in Ziudwolde that sends me like 60 boxes every year, but I need 10 times more.

 When you have some time , please tell me what do you think about this.

 Thanks so much for everything,

 Cristi and Alina and all 20 children we have .

Thank you so much for the transport you have sent to us. 

Deze twee kinderen wonen met hun oma in de container die we in maart gebracht hebben. 
Thank you for making a lot of efforts for the people in our area and for our orphanage. 
Truck came yesterday before 12 am. and by 3 P.M. they were gone already. We had a big team of children to unload and we finished in less then 3 hours. 

It was nice to see Joan again and also to meet Nico for the first time.  They are nice guys. 

 Alina sorted all the goods you have sent and they are now i the ware house. I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH  for everything you have sent us here. Is is great stuff and we will help a lot of people with that. 

 We already gave some soy and hack to the people who come on Thursday morning for milk. 

So on behalf of all the people who will benefit from this , and on behalf of the children from orphanage I say Thank you to you and your team and everyone who made this possible. 

 I will upload pictures on Picassa and send you links as we deliver the goods. 

 Thank you so much , Cristi

Nicoleta nieuw centrum

Dear Mr. Maarten,

As you already know, my institution opened a new center in Baia de Aries. This center was built from the ground in one year, with money from the EU - 900 000 Euro (and about 80 000 Euro our contribution). It is for 50 people with mental disabilities and we started to transfer beneficiaries from Galda center:
during September 2014 we transferred groups of 10 people in order for them and for the new hired personnel to get used one with each other. 
It is our most modern center, built at european standards, but still the budget did not allowed us to buy all the endowment to the highest level. And again, the donation you are sending us, helped us a lot: the budget for beds and mattresses was only 89 Euro/item. Since we had good quality mattresses from you, we used entire amount of 89 euro for buying solid nice beds. The pictures with the trailer loaded with mattresses are from one transport for the new center. We transferred 50 Relaxa mattresses and 6 plastic ones (for the possible cases of patients with incontinence). You could also see 2 stainless steel tables (one in the kitchen and the other one with wheels for serving dinner) and an wheels armchair received from you. Step by step, all the goods received from you are finding the right place in helping our beneficiaries  So, thank you again for your help and for all the efforts that you and all volunteers are making for us.
I am sending you the pictures with new center from Baia de Aries and we are expecting you all to come and visit us.

All the best!

Een rit naar Botosani

Verslag Roemenië 2014

Rijders:            Jan Greeuw en Gerard Jan Krijgsman
Bestemming:   Botosani
Vertrek:           Maandag   8 september 2014
Terug:              Maandag 15 september 2014
Km:                 ca.  4.400.

“No problem!” riep de Roemeense monteur bij zijn eerste blik onder ‘onze’ Mercedes. Ik hoopte van harte dat hij gelijk had, maar ik twijfelde wel. Ik had zelf al 2 keer onder de auto gelegen om, met de monteur van Van den Heerik aan de andere kant van de lijn, te bezien of we het zelf konden fiksen. Niet dus. En helaas, ook de Roemeen kwam na de tweede inspectie onder de auto vandaan met de worden ‘Big problem’!. Daar waren we al bang voor. Toch niet voor zondag thuis dus.
