Train Up A Child….

Many times, while on the mission field I stop and ponder the question are my children really okay with living in Moldova. Do they understand how we were called to serve as a family? Do they get it? Well I have to brag just a little bit on Michael and Mary. Yesterday my questions were reconfirmed and it is truly a blessing that they can see the love of God in their parents and want to share this same love to others. Train up a child in the way he should go,… Read More

A Conspicuous Love

Last week I had the chance to visit a mental hospital for boys to deliver a therapy bed here in Moldova. The visit was unexpected and spur of the moment but exactly what I needed, the timing could not have been more prefect. Before I get started a verse comes mind. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35 This day trip reminded me of how our time here on this earth is short, we do not know the day… Read More

Girls Camp 2017

As I sit down to write this blog my mind is still in overload and my heart is still broken. Finding the words to describe a week with 111 girls ranging in age from 9 -19, first let me say how humbled I am that God would choose to use me as a leader at this camp. This was the first time that I have had the opportunity to attend girls camp. It was one of the hardest weeks I have ever experienced. While God was working, the enemy was ready to… Read More

On The Road Again…

We have been back in Moldova for over a month, I have been back in the office for several weeks and I have been so encouraged to see the Lord is carrying out His works in some amazing ways here in Moldova. The first week back I was able to complete what I would a call a milk run, visiting many ministries throughout the country of Moldova to see how things are going. These types of check ups result in long days however, it does your heart good to see how people… Read More

Beach or Bust…

As we approach the summer season, school is coming to a close and our minds turn to  the question what will we do or where we will go to find some fun in the sun. The most popular destinations come to mind…. Disney World, a nice cabin in the mountains, or somewhere beach side. However, one group of youth from Social Circle Baptist Church decided to follow God’s call and take a Mission Trip instead. We are honored that their Youth Pastor and his wife would give this group the opportunity to… Read More

It Is Well With My Soul

What does it mean to say it is well with my soul? Sometimes that is a difficult question to answer for we all have our ups and downs in life, some are tougher than others but in the end we feel this sense of peace that is unexplainable. That is where I am today, and have been for the past three weeks. Since we have been back in Moldova you can tell a difference in all four members of our family. I am truly thankful for this peace the Lord has given… Read More

God Is A Chain Breaker

God is a chain breaker with a heart willing to love the unlove and forgotten. Come hear us speak on Sunday at Calvary Baptist Church Covington Ga as we talk about this love that can break all the chains in your life.

Trust me you will be blessed for half way around the world the Lord is changing lives in what seems to be a hopeless environment. We serve an awesome God and we should… Read More

A White Christmas

  Merry Christmas! Today is Christmas according to the Julian calendar here in Moldova. In addition to it being Christmas it is a white Christmas too. Thinking back to Christmases gone by I do not every remember a white Christmas so this is first for my family and I. The snow has covered the ground much like a blanket, which reminds me of God’s love. As believers we prayed, repented, and He washed us white as snow. Just like the snow that surrounds me today I am reminded go God’s love and… Read More

Christmas?  Presents or Presence 

As I sit thinking about writing this blog entry my emotions run high. Thoughts run trough my head like I’ll offend someone or hurt someone’s feelings. And every time I tried to write it my way God would redirect the words to say what the Holy Spirit wanted me to say. So I’ll just speak from the heart and hope people will understand. The Christmas Season has just ended and while it’s one of the happiest seasons in the Western world, it has become something that it was never intended to be…. Read More

Alone & Forgotten

Many times when I go out to the village to visit with different families I cannot but wonder in the last few minutes before Jesus died on the cross how it must have felt to be alone and forgotten. That is the case for many elderly people across Moldova and Ion (John) from a village in south Moldova is no different. He lives everyday alone and forgotten. This loneliness and being forgotten is unlike anything you have experienced. You see Ion is 81 years old and looks to be 90 plus years… Read More
