I really didn’t know much about Moldova until Alyona and Angie joined our Love UnVeiled leaders workshop in November 2015. Moldova is a small country of around 4 million people, tucked between Romania and the Ukraine. It was part of the Soviet Union until 1991. Moldova faced economic crisis following the collapse of the Soviet Union and remains one of Europe’s poorest countries, though it is slowly growing in prosperity. Moldova is also a primary source country for victims of human trafficking who are frequently forced to become sex workers in the Middle East and other areas.
Moldova may be small, but God has heard the cries of women in Moldova and called Alyona and Angie to set those women free. It gives me such joy to share what God is doing through them, and to ask you to pray for them!
Alyona and Angie are experienced ministry leaders serving the Lord through Campus Crusade. They joined LUV training with a desire to bring healing and freedom to women, and to equip and empower women to reach other hurting women in Moldova.
After their first Workshop, Alyona and Angie began training their staff to reach women using the Butterfly training. They have already started a Butterfly group, and are reaching women in prison sharing the Butterfly Story. They made beautiful Butterfly pins for the women in prison to wear, reminding them of the freedom and love they can find in Jesus. They continue visiting women in prison every Monday.
Please pray for the Moldova butterfly group and for the women In prison to experience transformation and freedom in Jesus!
Special Need! Alyona has an immediate health challenge. She has been dealing with a Hepatitis C virus for over four years. All she has been able to do is manage the spread of the virus throughout her body and protect the liver from further damage. Her husband says that In spite of the toll the virus takes on her body weekly, Alyona has always remained so positive and active in ministry, leading others, encouraging and strengthening so many of their staff.But recently there has been hope for Alyona and her family! A new treatment (cost $2500) just recently came to Moldova which could cure her virus.
God has provided most of the funds but she still needs $600.
- Please pray God will make this medicine available to Alyona, and that she will be cured from the virus and its effects so she can serve him in full health and strength!
- Would you prayerfully consider giving a one time gift to help provide the remaining $600 needed for treatment. You can give any amount on-line at www.loveunveiled.org and click “Donate”. Make your donation under selection “General” with a note – “Gift for Alyona’s Treatment”. NO amount is too small – all of our gifts collectively will make a difference for Alyona.
Alyona and Angie will be traveling to Orlando next week for their third LUV Workshop. Please pray for Alyona’s health in traveling the long distance, and that God will use this time to encourage and prepare both women for the work He is calling them to do in Moldova.Thank you so much for your prayers and giving. I am humbled by how God uses us together to help equip and empower women all over the world to unveil His love and bring spiritual freedom to women.
Yours with hope in His love,
Founder & Executive Director
