Moldova Bound in 3 short weeks...

Preparation for our mission trip to Moldova is well underway. We will depart on July 31st and return Aug. 10th. Getting equipped to go requires much preparation for all team members. All 10 of us are working to be ready to share our lives with about 100 children and 8 adult teachers on the grounds of a camp outside of the capitol city, Chisinau, where they live during June, July and August.

We are very aware of the need for prayer as we finalize our plans, travel and spend 10 days in country.

Here are some of the things we'd like to have prayer warriors be remembering:
1. Elections to select members of the National Parliament in Moldova on July 29th.
2. Peace and trust that God will provide all that each team member needs to be His ambassador during this trip.
3. Time for needed preparation of materials, lessons and supplies.

Fortunately the source of strength is a mighty God who desires that all people hear His truth. We know He is enabling us as we prepare.

Dear Lee,

Your upcoming ministry outreach to children in Moldova align with our Sunday morning message.
Norv Brown, our Pastor of Children's & Family Ministries, gave the message, as Pastor Corey is on vacation.
Norv has such a heart for children & his exuberance is contagious. The scripture he shared applies to all children, not just our own flesh & blood.

"Hear, O Israel: (We who know God through His son)
The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deut. 6:4-7

Yes, I will be in prayer as you continue to prepare for your trip.

God is calling His creation throughout the whole world to love Him. I pray for those who are about to hear of His love through you, that their hearts will be open & receptive to Him.

Thank-you for your obedience in sharing God's love to the next generation. I consider it a privilege to support you all in prayer.

In prayerful anticipation,

Dear Marge,
Your comments mean so much to me. Thanks for thinking of our trip in relation to the scripture that was shared in your worship service this morning. It is truly a privilege to share God's truth with the people He puts along our path as we travel and spend time in Moldova.

Your ministry of prayer provides much strength to me. Thanks for caring and spending time to keep our team covered during this time of preparation and then in the implementation.

Love, Lee
