romania

we are going to romania with our church Seashore Community Church of the Nazarene. Our associate pastor has a heart for missions and plans atleast 2 Work & Witness trips each year. This is our 3rd trip with the church. A work and witness trip is a short term mission trip usually 2 weeks where there is a goal for building or fixing a building and doing ministry in the community. We are going to the Mana Church to add a second story and replace the roof. The church wants to be more useful for the community so they are trying to add more rooms for teaching. We are also going to an orphanage and we will be playing with the children and doing whatever else God leads us to do. Please keep us in your prayers and especially pray for the people we are going to come into contact with. Where we are going in Romania is the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler better known as Dracula and many of the people are into witchcraft and sorcery.

Happy for you. I wish I had gone on a mission before I had kids. Now, it's a little more complicated. I'm sure God will do great things through you and your traveling companions. I didn't realize people were still so superstitious there. Wasn't Vlad around during the middle ages? Take some garlic and a crucifix?

That is so awesome Melissa Mae. Sounds like a very nice mission.

Have a safe flight to there and look forward to knowing about it and seeing some pics if you wanted to share them. I love pics of all types.

God bless you and your husband.

Bye for now and I'm happy for you. :)
