Just some raw thoughts today… nothing too poetic, nothing super emotional, just basic updates!
Last week I wrote about two men, John Leonard Dober and David Nitschman, who literally sold themselves into the service of our King. These men gave up everything, never really expecting to see their friends or family again, to share the truth of Christ among a foreign people in a foreign land. The Lord has used the example of these men, and Matt Pappa’s song “The Reward of His Suffering” to spur us on to what he is calling us to in life. You can read this blog post here.

This post has been stewing for awhile… a long while! The video below has been quite an inspiration to us and we still get teary-eyed when we listen to it!

So of course I asked him to write them all out for a blog post! Thanks sweetheart for taking the time to put your thoughts together in order to share with everyone!

Goodbyes are Hard. And we find ourselves in a season of goodbyes. Maybe you, too, are in a season of goodbyes? Maybe it’s the last day of school or you just recently graduated? Perhaps you are moving soon. Have you recently lost a loved one or a beloved pet? Maybe you are taking a trip somewhere. Life always brings goodbyes and whether you’re a four year old sad to leave a playdate with friends or whether you’re holding the hand of your grandfather as he passes away… goodbyes are HARD!
And that’s okay!
Let me introduce our team…
-they are Jesus lovers, cheerful givers, humble helpers, faithful prayer warriors, consistent friends, loving family, encouraging supporters, ministry partners.
-they are learning about Romania, anticipating God’s work in the life of all those involved with this mission, hearing about the life of the gypsies, sharing their hearts for the gospel to go forth, exploring how God wants them to be involved in this ministry, loving people all around them, and asking about the life and culture in Romania.
