Year-end reflection & donation request

    12.30.17 |

    Dear Outstretched Hands Family,

    As we do every year at this time, we find ourselves reflecting on all that God has done in Romania.  What a year it’s been!  Five new church plants, involvement of many teenagers into the ministry, two new community center projects in the works, new children’s ministries starting, continued favor and opportunities with our Pro-Life ministry, the building of the new Chirnogi Church, a growing Outstretched Hands team and of course, generous prayer and financial support from people like you. 

    And, like most years around this time, our funds are largely depleted. We ask that you prayerfully consider helping us as part of any end-of-year giving you are doing. Normally these funds would go towards special projects, of which there are many pending, but this year, we desperately need to replenish our general fund from which the day-to-day ministry is run, including our important work at the Hope Centre, that so many have come to depend upon.  We lost a main, long-term northern European sponsor for the Hope Centre, and so giving at this time will help to stabilize that monthly shortfall.    

    You can make your year-end gift online before midnight, Sunday December 31st, by CLICKING HERE.  It’s easy, quick, and secure.

    Or you can mail your donation to us at:

    Last year, when we reached out around this time, your response was overwhelming!  We not only met, but exceeded what we hoped for.  We were able to jump-start projects and accomplish so much going into 2017. 

    Outstretched Hands of Romania is the Lord’s ministry.  We continue to trust and believe in Him for provision as we stand in awe and gratitude of all that He has already done.

    Thank you again for your friendship, support, and prayers.  We are truly all in this together.

    Brad & Nora Hayes, the Outstretched Hands team & board of directors

    Please also watch the video accessed on this page called, “Vision Must Become Visible”.  Watching this video helps bring you into Romania and lets you see some of the sights of Outstretched Hands ministry, and hear from some of our team members. We only visit a few of our ministry locations in the video.
