Enter 2021 by being thankful for 2020!!
Recently I wrote a long list of wonderful things that happened in my life and in Outstretched Hands ministry in 2020 . . . the most unusual of years!! There were many many good things that happened for us, most of which were in connection with the ongoing trust and support of friends, partners, and sponsors of Outstretched Hands of Romania! So, we decided to dedicate January 2021 to draw attention to some of those incredible blessings with regular reports like this one, using our website and social media as well. Obviously 2020 had many challenges to navigate through and for some, dark valleys to walk through and climb out of. But, to help keep 2020 in perspective, it is good to identify the good things, and reflect on the Lord’s faithfulness as we enter into 2021. Here are some photos of some of the 2,500 children who received a Samaritan Purse shoebox at one of our ministry locations for Christmas! WE ARE VERY THANKFUL for people all over the world who give to the needy and less fortunate all over the world!! God bless all of you! Brad Hayes, on behalf of the Outstretched Hands of Romania team
