28th Wedding Anniversary

28th Wedding Anniversary
Today is our wedding anniversary! Sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago when we walked down the isle together at Faith Baptist Church in Humboldt, Tennessee. Other times it seems like just a short time has passed since we made a vow before God and man to share our lives for better or worse. I believe mostly, it has been better. Who would have guessed that we would find ourselves on the mission field at this point in our journey? Here, in Romania,  we celebrate the strength that God has endowed upon us to stick to our wedding vows. Times have not always been easy but that is ok. I believe that all...

Metanoia Church – New Facilities and Needs

Metanoia Church – New Facilities and Needs
Our brothers and sisters at Metanoia Church have grown to a place that they needed to move to a bigger building. This is an awesome problem to have but with such a move and with limited resources, this presents a new set of challenges. This new building will give them much needed space for worship and expanded ministry opportunities under roof… and speaking of the roof. This is a good place to insert a BIG prayer request. They really hope to be in the new building before winter sets in completely… but the roof on this new building has a lot of leaks and they are concerned about how they...

Lacu Dulce Children – Video
Here is a short of a song that the children at Lacu Dulce were practicing recently on a Saturday in the mission church. These practice sessions have become a collaborative effort for sure.

It was a good day. During these practice times, the children hear commentary on scripture verses, they are led in praying, they sing Christian...

Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks
Thanksgiving Day was a blessing. Sure, we were away from home and our children. That part was not easy but here in our field of service, we have made new friends and have grown close to many of our colleagues. The last year has been filled with many twists and turns and opportunities to serve our Lord. Obviously, I am thankful for my personal salvation and for Jesus Christ who made this possible. I am thankful for a Christian family and the peace that I get from knowing that my wife and two children are also saved. I am thankful for a church family back in Tennessee who cares for us. I am thankful for...

Baptisms at Holy Trinity Church

Baptisms at Holy Trinity Church
Yesterday Dawn and I had an awesome opportunity to witness a baptismal service with our friends at Holy Trinity Church in Braila. I was taken at how different the service was compared to most similar services I had experienced back home. This is not to say that one way is better than another but just an acknowledgment that they are different. Actually, I believe that many of our churches in the states could emulate some of the differences. I will get to that later but for now, let me just try and describe the atmosphere in the church as things progressed. As the services got started, many many new...
