Seeking Refuge

For me, the first place I would call home was an old single-wide trailer on Jackson Highway in my home town. I was a baby of course and do not remember much about the place but I know for a period of time this was home, my refuge. A few years passed and my family moved closer to the city of Covington in a small but perfect three-bedroom house. I have many memories about this house for a few years this was home, my refuge. This house was across the street from… Read More

Just a Fork, Spoon, & Three Small Cars

While on Love Moldova B we went to the village of Nicolaevca. Nicolaevca has a small church, that has been planted from the church in the next village. It is a small house with two rooms that are very dirty and smelled of mold. Work to reconstruct the house is underway but has a lot to be done. There is a need for the church in the village because the people are open to the Gospel and want to learn more about God. Our team spent five days in this village doing… Read More

A Life Focused on Him

As summer approaches OM Moldova begins a summer Outreach program called Love Moldova. We have four opportunities to join a team of foreigners who come from all over the world to tell the people of Moldova about God and His love for them. Our family went on Love Moldova A, we were joined by a team from America. Our purpose was to visit families: where we would give them a food parcel, talk with them and share God’s love with them. The visit that impacted me the most was when we visited… Read More

Mrs. Vera

We arrived in Bravicea just before lunch with our minds and hearts ready to serve the Lord. We planned for this outreach to be different, we were accompanied by a team who wanted to encourage and share the Gospel with as many people as possible. We did not waste any time in doing so,  just after lunch, we headed out for two family visits. The first family was a husband and wife who were believers and caregivers for ten children, we came to encourage, but we were encouraged instead. We left their… Read More

The Power of Prayer

The power of prayer, do we fully understand what that means in our lives as Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ? Has our life or another’s life been affected or changed as a result of the power of prayer through our personal prayers or someone interceding on our behalves? What is the power of prayer? According to the Bible, the power of prayer is quite simply the power of God, He is the one who hears and answers.  The Lord Almighty can do all things, Luke 1:37 says, For with God nothing… Read More

Reality and The Culture We Live In

I’ve been trying to put these words on paper for several weeks now, I type and delete. When we arrived back in Moldova I was super excited to make the journey up the street to the Cancer Hospital to see Maria. Why was I excited? Because I hadn’t seen her in 3 months, because I had some really cool cards to share with her that some children from America had made her, or maybe it was the fact that I had heard some really great news her tumor had shrunk. Whichever emotion… Read More

Your Last Breath

As you take your last breath on this Earth your eternity will have already been decided. That decision was your choice. You only have two choices, Heaven or hell, when deciding your eternity. Every one of us has to make this choice, the government will not help you, your parents and friends cannot help, nor can any amount of money make this decision for you. As believers, we are called to tell others about Jesus and share the Gospel with them. That goes for all of us, not just pastors, Sunday school… Read More

Scars

We now have been back in Moldova for nearly a month and we have settled back into life in a foreign country. Over the last few weeks I have watched the people; especially the elderly people. So much that they have become heavy on my heart. Seems as if there are more elderly here than there were before. I know that is not the case but maybe I have become so comfortable with life like everyone else and I just did not see them or maybe returning to the states for the… Read More

A Simple Hello…

It was a simple hello that first day we all meet Sofia and her family, we never knew it would be such a complicated good bye. Recently we moved from our old apartment into a new apartment. After much prayer the Lord provided us with this new apartment and the move was a success but at the same time saying goodbye is not all it is cracked up to be. There are many things different about mission life that you will never experience until you answer the call to serve the Lord… Read More

A Child of God

Yesterday I attended a funeral for the mother of a good friend here in Moldova. The ground was covered in snow, the temperature was -4 and the cemetery was all uphill but the people came to pay their respects. Mrs. Ludmila had been sick for several months and on Tuesday she went to be with the Lord. She was a believer; a child of God and she would tell you when you meet her. Throughout the service many verses from the Bible were discussed, one verse was Revelation 21:4. This verse is… Read More
