Moldova: Hope for Kids with Autism

By Natasha Turlac

Natasha with Roman
I am really excited that our ministry to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) grows and expands with each new day! How wonderful it was to travel to Moldova in March-April 2014 and share the good news of hope with so many desperate families of children with Autism!

In June 2014, we at Turlac Mission decided to support two families with autistic children, so that kids would be able to attend activities at the local development center in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. The first family has a boy Damian, 4 and a girl Nicoletta, 6. The second family has twins Nikita and Christian, 9. Financial help provided by Turlac Mission ($50 per month per child) will enable these children to interact with other kids and will provide some respite for parents. When Oleg goes to Moldova in August 2014, he will deliver two PC Tablets for these kids with ASD. Tablets have educational programs, etc. loaded on them.

Being actively involved in ministry to families with children with ASD, I am constantly staying in touch with moms from Russia, Ukraine and Moldova, counseling them and responding to their many questions. I ask the Lord in prayer to give me lots of wisdom to be able to say right things to parents that often feel hopeless.

Children with Autism in Moldova and their families need your help! We are still looking for Christian professionals who would be willing to donate their time to come to Moldova for a week of volunteer work/ministry. If you have necessary training in the study of Autism and are willing to devote one week of your time, we would love to talk to you about the possibility of going on a mission trip to Moldova. Perhaps you know of anyone from your circle of friendship or church family who has training in ASD and would be willing to go with me or Oleg to Moldova? Please, let us know.

Thank you for your great interest and active support of this ministry!
