We spent all last week visiting different camps in N. Greece. My friend Janice from the First Pres Church of Berkeley was with me for almost two weeks and not only she was a great help but also great company. We sent her off this morning to go home and I am following her home this Friday the 30th.

The refugee camps were very sad in many ways but yet very hopeful in other ways. The kids are carefree and happy but the adults mostly discouraged since the borders closed and they feel they are at the end of their rope. A little ray of hope is the fact that a few of them are being processed at a time and are assigned to particular countries. At this rate however, it will take years before they leave Greece. The army brings them food and the churches and many Christian organizations from within and outside supplement with food and clothing.

We continue to pray for them and ask the Lord to have mercy on them! We find a few Christians among them and many families are taken by local Christians to their homes as guests until there is an answer for their future.

The Macedonian Outreach continues to grow support a family in Thessaloniki who is waiting for their papers to be processed so they can join their father who is already in Germany. In the meantime we buy lots of food, hygiene products and things for the kids for six camps in the past five months. Please keep on praying for them!

Thank you all for your support through emails, phone calls, prayers and some visits while I served here this summer for four and a half months. God bless you all in every way.

With love, Vula

I just got the news and thank God that the young family that we supported in Thessaloniki were processed and are on the way to Germany to meet their husband and daddy. We wish them God’s blessings and a peaceful life. It was such a pleasure to have known and love them!

    What a beautiful blessing you and your partners have been for the last 4 1/2 months this summer to so many in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It will be wonderful to hear your stories when you get home and we continue to pray for God’s arms of protection around you today and as you travel safely home. We all love you and miss you Vula.
