Christmas Newsletter

Happy Christmas to all - here is the Christmas newsletter for all the latest news from Casa Valentin.


Children with shoeboxes

We have sent 312 shoe boxes packed with Christmas gifts which will be given to the children of school ages, covering 4 villages (Cataloi, Frecatzei, Posta and Telitza) plus 41 children who attend Adrian and Gabriela's other Day Centre in the County Town of Tulcea. Massive thanks to all who donated the gifts for these boxes.

Community Education

For a few years now the Kindergarten and Primary schools at Cataloi have been sending a group of children to Casa Valentin two days a week during term time as part of their community education. In November we had requests from two other villages - Frecatzei and Posta - to send their children as well. This is a great reflection on the good educational side of our work in Romania as the teachers received glowing reports on the work done there.

Latest newsletter with all the Summer time news from Casa Valentin.

Pastor Adrian

Pastor Adrian has had an unfortunate accident with a chainsaw, damaging two fingers on his left hand. Fortunately he is right-handed. As minister in charge of music at the local Baptist church, he is still able to play the keyboard, but is unlikely to be able to play the guitar again. The accident has not affected his driving, however. Please pray for his recovery and for the doctors helping him regain as much use of his hand as possible.

Candy Floss!

We have had a record number of children visiting Casa Valentin for this year’s summer holiday season and the children are really enjoying their holiday. A newly acquired ‘candy floss’ machine has proved immensely popular. The machine, which was given to the home by a well-wisher, is to be shared with Gabriela and Adrian’s sister charity “The Near-to-you Ministry Centre” in nearby Tulcea.
