In late December, members in Moldova were active in giving the Blessing in villages.
The first of these efforts took place on December 26, 2019. Through the initiative and efforts of the Taub family, a Family Festival was held in Ciobanovca village of the Anenii Noi District. Three couples participated in three steps, together with 20 other participants who came to enjoy this special program.
In Costești village of the Ialoveni District, 20 couples participated in three steps of the Blessing at a Family Festival that was held on December 27, 2019. An additional 30 participants came to the event, including children.
The event was organized in partnership with the town hall of the village and the Association of Blind People of Ialoveni District. The mayor offered both the opening address and the closing congratulations to the participants. What made this event special was that a majority of participants were couples in which one or both are visually impaired. As they themselves said, it was a great event for a group of people who often feel isolated.
