February is the month for Special Gifts.
We have designated 2021 Gift Day (Month of February) to support the new Outreach Pillar and the need of an additional budget for Adi to start seriously putting his Team in place for greater ministry through Church, Children, Communities and Camps.
All these areas of ministry were restricted in 2020, but we believe (and continue to pray passionately) that 2021 will be different. Many are desperate to get out of their limitations and once they are operating, we believe Church Activities, Children’s Outreach, Community Support and Camps in Dezna will all face huge demand.
We plan for initially two new Team members, moving to three as we progress, to work in the Outreach Team with Adi, Pastor Vasile and Ioana – creating an ultimate Outreach Team of 6 people. We are praying at least two will be available by April, but we need support to make these new appointments. Approximately £15,000 ($19,500) per person to cover the annual salary and expenses.
Please pray with us during this special month of focus on Gift Support that sufficient will be raised to employ, one …. two …. and maybe even all three! Also pray with us for those who God would Call to serve, and will respond so we can share the Good News of the Gospel to more children and families, in the coming year.
To make your Special Offering, use on-line options here, or telephone the Smiles Office to use a Card, or mail your Gift to the Smiles office. In all cases, please designate your Gift to the Outreach Pillar.

There are several fund-raising efforts this month, including Cookery Classes each Saturday.
The first was February 6th and was presented from Romania, where the presentation was on making the traditional dish – Sarmale.
You can catch the Video here, so please enjoy and encourage others to watch and support the Outreach Work of Smiles in the process. Thank you.
