Whole30, part 1

Who else has done the Whole30? Anyone here? Or maybe everyone else you know? Seriously there have been gobs of people doing the Whole30 lately and to be completely honest I only knew of like 2 people that had completed it when we first committed to it. But as it goes, once you start telling people what you’re up to other stories come out of the wood works. And as such, I hesitate to even write a post about it because we all know we don’t need more guilt caused by another “eat healthy” post, right? Ha! That’s how I feel even though I’m the one writing this… but we’re gonna do it anyway. Why? Because it’s worthy of noting and strangely enough Brett and I have learned a few things along the way!

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. Along the process, we’ve been asked “what people group do you want to live among?” And “is there a country/culture you feel called to?” After a few years of no clear answers to these questions, we were encouraged by our pastor to begin asking the question “what giftings has God equipped you with?” and “what type of setting would you function well in?”

In 2014, our good friend Nicki came home after spending a summer in Romania. She shared with us about the work Belief in Motion is doing to change lives physically and spiritually! Our hearts were drawn to the primary focus of gospel centered relationships along with the empowering work of education, job creation, and faithful compassion among the least of these. Read on to discover a little more about Belief in Motion.
