We've had an eventful year in Romania! We are so thankful to be here in Romania and know God enabled us to be present to serve as a support through some very difficult family life events. They're not our tales to tell, but they only confirm that we are where God wanted us to be for such a time as this. So many have been giving so faithfully for months, if not years, and we can't tell you all the ways God has used you to get us to this place – THANK YOU! But I wanted to let you all know you haven't been giving to get us to Romania or keep us here, and that your funds haven't been used to do either. If you read below, you'll find out exactly where our giving level is at and what is up ahead!
If you read our earlier blog posts you'll see that we used our own funds for our fundraising trip, for relocation to Romania (with the exception of some of the cash for shipping belongings), and for all of our living and ministry expenses since then. It hasn't always been easy but it has always been a blessing for us to be committed as a family to the ministry work we're doing here, and seeking to do in Europe with military families. And now we're looking at the finish line!
You can look on our giving page by clicking HERE, or the link navigation above, and see our new Giving Thermometer! I've also happily created the below graphic that clocks the change that's been working while we've been serving this summer through two camps (Youth and Awana). We are in the home stretch, and I encourage you to partner with the work God is doing. Timing is crucial, and now is the time! Thank you SO MUCH for loving youth in military families enough to help us serve them. If you've been waiting for the right time to give, so we can serve on this mission field, now is that time!!
Will you partner with us financially? Will you make it possible for this mission to continue? Look at where we are!
