thrilled that her son has managed to graduate
8th grade in the Romanian system. If funds were available, he
would probably go on to High School.
Aurica was one of the first
in Tileagd to confess her faith in Christ and was baptised in 2006.
Because of her desire to read the Bible, she started attending a
literacy class and learnt to read and write.
This helped her in
progressing within the Craft Project, that enabled her to earn some
money through selling the items she made and thereby better support
herself and her son. She also had the opportunity to work in our Vision
Project workshop, but to do so – she needed to understand numbers and
not just to count to 100 or to add and subtract! She had to learn to
work with decimals. She did and now she is able to undertake a
responsible job as a technician for the Vision Project.
This is very much part of
the Tileagd Miracle!
Aurica has had to take a
lot of giant steps to reach where she is today… and she has managed to
do this because she knows God is helping her.
It has always been one of
the Craft Project’s aims to help women support themselves with
dignity and take more responsibility for their needs and their family.
Aurica has worked the
hardest but she is not alone. She is one of the key amongst up to 12
others who are embroidering bags, cushion covers, banners, book covers
and spectacle cases.
