No Chimney Smoke!

**Just a note the link to the video is at the bottom of this entry, labeled as “No Chimney Smoke”.** Today I was out for a walk around the Mission Center in Codru and I noticed the lack of chimney smoke on such cold day. The houses surrounding me have several chimneys but no chimney smoke. Some of these houses have gas heat but not all of the houses do. So I asked myself how are they staying warm, no gas heat, no firewood to burn. So sometimes you have to see… Read More

In The Blink of An Eye

In the blink of an eye it can be all over and we can be in eternity. Sometimes I think we forget that and we get comfortable with everyday life. I see this in my life more than ever after living in a foreign country. Yesterday I was involved in a car accident, in the blink of an eye it happen. I did not expect it and I was even in disbelief that I just got hit. Praise the Lord I am okay and the lady that hit me is okay and… Read More

Giving Thanks, A Story About Ion

There has been a verse from the Bible in my head all week about Thanksgiving. Sometimes I think we get caught up in life and we just plain forget to give thanks to the Lord for all things no matter the circumstance. 1st Thessalonians 5:18 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Well what does that verse actually mean in all circumstances? Today I meet a man named Ion ( John), he lives in a small village located in west Moldova called… Read More

Listen Today for Tomorrow is Another Day

So many times as believers we pray to The Lord asking to see the entire plan Jesus has for us. We are never content with what He tells us, we want to see the full picture. We know that is not how The Lord wants us to be for he wants our faith to grow strong and He wants us to be content with his answer, follow His direction and wait for the next answer. For you see two years ago last week we were in Moldova on a vision trip searching… Read More

Called To Serve As A Family

The following is some background on why I write today. Christy and I felt called to the mission field many months ago, we always felt we could do more for the Lord and his Kingdom. This call came with many questions especially about our children. Many asked us along the way this is your call but we would quickly response and say no this is our family’s call. For the Lord would not call just one of us and some did not understand that. As parents of two great children we knew… Read More

Troubled Days

The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him. Nahum 1:7   Serving God here in Moldova is a true blessing and honor but at the same time there are hard days in Moldova too. Today was one of those hard days. As a family we set out to enjoy the city as Moldova celebrated National Langauge Day today. We planned to go to the park, and we also had a short list of things to do too. As the day progressed… Read More

The True Living Water

God is our true Living Water. Without water, life would not exist Just few words to ponder in the coming days as you enjoy the summer activities in the water.

So I challage you to say a prayer each time to go to the faucet for clean fresh water, each time to open your bottled water for a… Read More

Looking to the Light

I am in pray this morning for the Moldovan people as so many live in darkness with no hope they think. I know there is hope so please say a prayer for these people as Love MD “A” is coming to an end and Love MD “B” begins. So many people to share the light with but so little time. God bless you have a great week! John 8:12 Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but… Read More
