For us, January
is the month when we talk about budgets and plans for the year
ahead. The month when we spend hours in meetings and generally
more than I can handle …..The month when you try to forget what
was bad in the year past and hope for better in the year ahead!
was again on our plate! New
challenges, new wishes, new opportunities! I try to leave behind
2012, with all the problems that we had on this project and look
optimistically forward. We already manage to do part of the
electrical work, part of the insulation and we just agree on the
drainage work that needs to be done there! Please PRAY for this
project and SUPPORT it financially if you can! Every little helps
to make life changing differences!
that is in my heart and on my plate is the
Tileagd School and Nursery.
To be honest with you, this is one of the biggest challenges I
face. The financial situation from the last few years, the fact
that the state is not giving us the money that they should, is
putting extra pressure on us! I hate the thought that the
school and nursery might need to close down because of the lack of
money. I pray every day that God will find a way for this project
I told you many
times about the challenges that we face in Tileagd. My dear
friends, even though life is not easy wherever we might be ,
progress has been made all this years! The children are not the
same, and they do know what means to have a "better life!". Please
pray with me, pray for this project and the Tileagd village. Pray
for the money that we need in order to educate 150 kids month by
month. I know life is hard! Someone told me recently "it will be
even harder" …..But I also know we have an AMAZING God that can do
more than we even imagine!! If you think you can be a part of this
project, please follow the link and find more about it!
25, we had our annual meeting with the Smiles- Sminro Staff!
For me these meetings are very emotional. I’m happy to hear the
good news, some sad for the bad ones! We had people that left
Smiles in 2012, and new people that came in! At the end of 2012,
Cristina Popescu left Smiles. We appreciate all the work
she did for us and hope and pray for a good future for her.
A new person
that joined Smiles is Paula Blaj. She was appointed
Retail Manager for our shop in Alesd, a new adventure for
Smiles/ Sminro. We had a little shop in this town before, but in
October when our previous employee left we decided that it was
good to take a break. Now , on February 1st we open
the new ‘Save & Smile’ shop at a new location in Alesd. I’m
sooooo happy for it and I’m looking forward to tell you more
updates next month. I was involved in the decoration of this place
and I LOVE IT when people can benefit of good quality clothes,
good prices, great location and great people!
month had GREAT surprises for me personally too!!
On the 24th,
my little brother, Ili and his wife Delia welcomed their first
child, Sasha Joshua! So, CIMPOCA family is celebrating!!! I LOVE
being an auntie! Is soooooooo cooool!! My little nephew is a
treasure. He is sooo cute and sooo good!
Hope to stay like that ….
As for me
personally, personally?!?! Well
I’m getting stressed out with the preparation for the wedding! The
good news is that I’ve managed to take a final decision on the
wedding dress and buy it!! Now I try not to look around and change
my mind! But I LOVE MY DRESS and I think it’s the best one
…for me!! The bad news is that I still have sooooooooooooooooooo
many things on my plate, and sooo less time!! Hope my wedding
organizer will do it all in the end …..If I did not tell you my
best friend and colleague, Georgi Opreanu is the wedding
organiser…….But with such a great person in the admin area, the
budgets are harder for me to explain to her why I went over so
many times …
I leave you
now, as I need to go back and do more work.
