Giving Thanks

by Alisha Sidebottom; FFR Hospital Project Coordinator

I have to say while living in Romania there are many things to be thankful for. Being surrounded by highs and lows of Romanian life has strengthened me to know and trust who my solid rock is, it may sound cliche but it’s the truth “on Christ my solid rock I stand”. 

I think I can speak for everyone on the FFR team when I  say we are privileged to get to meet hundreds of people who come volunteer with us each year. It’s a neat way to connect us all together, when we live so far from our families and childhood friends. 

The holidays can be quite the challenge knowing we all long for those familiar settings of family, food and friends that make up a holiday. This year we were blessed to have the Kubeks with us along with my brother Daniel and 2 girls from Sweden! We were surrounded by the warmth of friends and good food. We are so thankful for these people who give up their time and with willing hearts join us in the work here in Romania. 

As a team we all can say we are thankful to all of you who continue to sponsor not only the project but us as individuals, through finance, prayer and heart! To know you are backing us up and joining with us to continue to reach out to the poor and fatherless is something to be thankful for!

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” 
1 Chronicles 16:34
