It’s hard to believe that in three days, we’ll be in Europe. I could tell you where, but that would involve looking at maps and lots of thinking through clock math, which I’m not capable of right now.
Tonight was our last team meeting before we depart, and it’s amazing to see how far God has brought us in such a short time. He gets the all the glory for:
- bringing together a team of people and creating unity,
- providing miraculously for everyone’s trip finances in full,
- providing gifts for ladie’s teas and crafts for children’s ministries through, friends, donations and generous church support and
- a clean bill of health for every team member.
We’ve prayed together, planned together, and practiced our Romanian – both speaking and singing. Tonight, we distributed materials for our suitcases and crate, and had our final puppet practice. We’ve had fun, and built some muscles we knew nothing about in our puppet arms.
By this time next week, we’ll have been in four villages, two churches, three children’s programs, and one Christian Academy. Please pray for our strength, travel safety and health. Pray that we work well with our missionaries, Rick and Jan, our translators, drivers, and new friends from Evangel University.
Thank you all for your support, and for remembering us in your prayers! We will have some access to the internet while in Romania, and hope to keep you all updated as we go. I’ll leave you with some lyrics we’ve been learning:
Isus iubeşte pe fiecare, Isus iubeşte pe toti!
Jesus loves each person, Jesus loves all!
