Mariaís Report - May 2013  

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose". Romans 8-28

Love it! Itís soooo true! In all my "areas" of life - personal, professional - this Bible verse is my favourite! A great encouragement in the dark days, comfort in the sad days, a wonderful reminder in the happy days! Give everything to HIM, LOVE HIM , and act according to HIS WORD! Ö..and you will be amazed when ALL THINGS come together! All your dreams come true!

So many of my dreams came true along my journey in life! I give thanks to God for it and for the people that HE used to make my dreams real! This month, in May, another dream of mine comes true - with Godís help Ė IíM GETTING MARRIED!!!  May 12th is the BIG DAY! Pray for me, for us!! Pray for our new journey in life!!.......and please PRAY for great weather! :)

But back to "my desk" for a moment?!? What was going on in April?? As usual - lots of things!

After the group of students from Pates left the country, we had another group from the UK coming to visit us! A great time, a great week. People with big hearts sharing Godís love to their neighbours, even if they are living all the way across Europe in ROMANIA!

During April, Mr Hoy together with Ritza and the Tileagd High School Students were on tour in the UK Ė on the "CEO and Friends Tour"! I hope that our UK friends managed to see the team and hear their story that they shared! It is amazing to see where they have got to! All this was possible with Godís help, Mr Hoyís personal commitment to them and lots and lots of people around the world praying and supporting them! Please continue to do so. Education is a fundamental way we can see a difference being made in Tileagd!

pril was another busy month for me on the JFL project. I have to make sure things are under control, but so many times God reminds me that HE is the only one that can keep things under control. We hope and pray that the Elderly Care part will be finished by October. If you wonder how you can be involved in this project, follow this link and read more about the options.
(Construction Teams.)

While I write my report this month we have another Mission Team visiting Smiles. This group is one of my favourites:) . I love spending time with them, talking to them, but more than that - worshipping with them! I love to see people that they put God in the first place in their life and their life shows that in every aspect. THANK YOU GUYS for being a great encouragement and a great example for me. You know who!

So my dear friend, if you do not have yet plans for your summer holiday, or if you do have some time off and you do not know what to do with it I invite you to COME TO ROMANIA!!!!!

It a great place "where you can refresh yourself and refresh others!" . Come for a week, or longer!!! We have lots of options during the year! Visit this link (MISSION TRIPs) and if you have any questions feel free to write and ask.

I will answer asapÖÖ.But not on 11th- 12th May!! Iím busy with the wedding. Speaking about that! Yes, it is only 11 DAYS TO GO!!  Iím happy, nervous, stressed but I know that if I give everything into Godís hands, all will be under HIS CONTROL!!

Thank you ALL for everything that you are doing for Smiles and the Romanian people.

May God bless you allÖÖÖand I canít wait until next month to come back with my report and lots and lots of pictures!!!

          Lots of love,


Maria Cimpoca (soon to be Hava!),
Director of Operations, Romania
