About Me

Delia-Claudia L. came from a family well-known to our ministry. Her family home had always been open to our teams whenever we used to visit the nearby villages to help the families in need.

Aurica, her mother, insisted that she fed everyone that came through, regardless of the number of people. She was a hard working sister in Christ, and was our contact person for different situations that our brothers and sisters were confronted with in the villages surrounding Tudor Vladimirescu.
Moreover, she used to travel with us every time to personally visit the families in need and pray with us over them.

She was a role model not only for her fourteen children but also for us and every other person that met her. She kept an impeccable house, always made sure she had cooked food for her family and all the visitors that came by and her storage room was full of jars of jams, preserves, vegetables for winter, and so much more. Always faithful, always grateful, she worked day by day to make sure she was a wife, a mother and an example to all, according to what Christ taught us to be.

The month of February, 2017 was when we received the terrible news. Following a massive stroke and months in a coma, the Lord had taken her home and into eternal rest. The news was so sudden that most of the people could not even believe it. Eight of her fourteen children were still living at home, the youngest being only six years old. The father being at work all day trying to make ends meet, his children were left alone, with no one to help them and the older girls having to take the maternal role for the younger ones. It was after a few months that the father, a hard-working individual working two shifts himself, realized that he would not be able to raise the children one his own and assist them in attending high school, the closest being almost 20 miles away.

Although having learned so much from their mother and trying their best to keep the house in place, it was soon obvious that the older girls were doing all this at the cost of their own well-being, often times putting school on a secondary place and heading towards completely giving up their education.

When their father asked for our help, we immediately started working with local authorities to get the approval to receive Delia-Claudia in our center. She moved in one of our apartments and quickly adapted to our big family.

Delia loved chemistry and biology and it was no surprise to us when she decided to apply to a medical school. In 2023, she graduated from a three year program in lasi as a dental assistant. She passed her final exam scoring the highest grade.

Immediately after, she decided to work abroad for a few months (in Belgium, where some of her other siblings are working) to raise the necessary funds to buy a car, planning to come back to work as a dental assistant in Romania as she already had a few job offers lined up and was so excited to start practicing.

We are grateful for your support which enabled Delia to find a home at Hand of Help, a place where she could grow and receive the support needed to help her get through the traumatic events in her life and also the opportunity to keep in close contact with her father and her siblings.

Sometimes we were able to so easily see her mother in her; oftentimes, throughout her stay with us, we were the ones being encouraged by her words and her unmovable faith in God and the certainty nothing happens out of mere circumstance, but all is His sovereign will.

Please continue to pray for Delia; we thank God for being her refuge and filling the void left in her after her mother's passing! What a testimony of His love and sovereignty arisen from all these events!
