Thanks for all your prayers!

Thank you to all of you who pray for ROOF's work on a regular basis. One of our prayer requests last time was for a boy from a PNI (so-called 'psycho-neurological' or MHSD orphanage).

  • for the little girl who has Downs in an orphanage we work with, and who has willing and ready adoptive parents just waiting for the approval to take her home;
  • that the last month of preparation for the summer camp goes well, and that the volunteers work well together and provide much-needed help and broaden the horizons of the children of Belskoye-Ustye (;
  • for ROOF to find pyschologists who do not have an overly-medicalized, deterministic view of the world;
  • that ROOF's relatively new management in Russia work effectively and prayerfully;
  • that Valeri, the father of our new Development Director Inna, who has Lou Gerig's disease and seems to have reached the final few months of his life, will be able to be kept comfortable and overcome his fears; for his carers to be diligent and caring; and for Inna as she tries to balance work and this difficult family issue;
  • that we can keep up with our funding needs (currenty an additional $5000 per month is needed)
  • that we can meet our campaign target and find the remaining 191 donors who will set up a regular $25/month donation (
