Belief in Motion in Romania

God is faithful. We have seen his work in our lives as we have prayed for direction over the last several years. In 2011, we really began praying about where God would have us serve long term. We attended a few conferences, chatted with numerous people about different organizations and even visited several options, but never felt completely at peace with any one option.

Somehow I just started ranting about time and I digress…

And so it begins…

Our “official” journey to Romania is underway. We’ve order the last of our 5 needed passports. Our budget is (flexibly) set and we are beginning the support raising process. Pretty soon we will be official on the Belief In Motion website and from there we just take off!! I guess you can say we are “on our way.”
