Personal news, 22nd September

Dear All

Charlie William Wakefield was born today at 11.56. He weighed 9lb 1oz. Mother and baby are doing fine, he has already had a feed and 'liked it'
Thank you for your prayers


Update 11th September

Just a quick note to ask you to pray for us this next week. At 3.00 (GB time) Monday, I leave home to catch the bus that will take me to Luton airport and a flight to Cluj Romania. The purpose of the trip is to:-

1) Buy materials to build the new building at Bethany camp. We do not know the cost exactly because prices have risen while we waited for the necessary permissions to be granted. We might need our Lord to do a 'loaves and fishes' with our money!!! Cristi will be helping me find the necessary bricks etc: and arrange transport to get everything up to the camp.

2) We will be going up to Vatra Dornei (up north) to organise the sale of our field. We have to find an estate agent to handle the sale. We tried to do it ourselves, we had a few enquiries but nothing certain. Pray that we find a buyer at a good price.

3) I will be visiting the guys at Alba Iulia, Terry, Lidia, Natan (for the first time) Delia and the rest of the team. Its been a while since I was there.

4) Keep Julie & Diane in your thoughts and prayers while I'm away, they will be childminding together. Julie has her operation in a month or so on her hand, they are going to take some bone out of her thumb and Diane who is due to give birth in about 2 weeks time!!!
Thank you for your prayers

Many blessings

Update 19th April from Traian

Dear friends!

Guess who isn't getting baptised... yet!

Guess who isn't getting baptised... yet!

With God's help, Lidia delivered our first baby this afternoon at about 5 o clock. Its a boy and his name is Natan. She had an extremely hard labour but in the end the baby was born ok. The ombilical cord was strangeling the neck, but the doctor spotted it in time and managed to save the baby. Please continue to pray for both of them especially Lidia as she is very week and fainted this afternoon trying to go to the toilet.
Thank you!

In Him, Traian, Lidia and Natan <><

Pre Easter Prayer request
