Viorica Tataru works with victims of human trafficking in Athens, Greece. Her work involves organising and leading outreaches on the streets and in the brothels of Athens. Viorica also teaches and mentors new volunteers, as well as leading an anti-trafficking prevention campaign in Romania.
Please pray for Greece, for the political situation and refugee crisis.
- For the Lord to protect the refugee women from being trafficked and exploited sexually.
- For God’s protection upon us as we go out 3 times a week during the day and night in the most dark areas in Athens.
- “Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel” Eph. 6:19. Please pray for good health, strength and wisdom as I continue to serve the Lord and His purposes.
During our weekly outreaches we hand out small brochures, devotionals, Christian books, books on the New Testament and Bibles, in seven different languages. We have seen the Lord touch hearts through His word and other Christian materials. Please support this ongoing project as we need to buy more literature, especially Albanian Bibles and materials.
Financial support is needed for the operational costs of our drop-in centre. During the week, we have women (who have some kind of freedom) coming in for a time of rest, for conversation or just seeking a place to feel at home. We welcome them with much love, offering them our time, treating them to a cup of tea and discussing and praying with them. Our prayer is that our drop-in centre will become the place where they meet Jesus and get to know Him. Help us keep this place open so it can shine His light.
Every year at Easter we bless the people we minister to, with a small Easter gift.
