Safe Arrival in Moldova...

Team Worden plus Mark
It is Saturday evening and I'm at home in Chisinau, Moldova.  This home for our team for the next week plus a few days is clean, comfortable and welcoming. 

Travel began for the Kerrville team members at 3am on Fri. morning.  Check in went quite smoothly and we had time for breakfast before heading to Detroit.  I was asleep on that flight before the plane took off!!! 

Detroit team expands
The team grew by 3 members in Detroit as others joined us from Denver, CO and Richmond, VA.  Getting acquainted is going well. A treat during our Detroit stop was that the Wordens were able to welcome son James and grandson Constantine for a visit at the airport.

 Slightly delayed departure from Detroit with smooth travel to Frankfurt.  Added another 3 team members there.  A very groggy group boarded Air Moldova and departed there about 3pm.

 Had a fun welcome in Chisnau by the CERI director here and her 10 month old baby girl whom we're meeting for the first time!

Some questions from Customs officials were deftly handled by Connie and our baggage entered the country.

Two boxes were delayed somewhere but should arrive in a day or two.

Our tummy's are full, our beds are ready and no one will have trouble sleeping.  It is cool and comfy.  My heart is singing and rejoicing that God has brought another team together and brought us safely here.  Thanks for your prayers!

Dear Team,

I'm rejoicing to hear of your safe arrival and your eagerness to
be, once again, 'in your home away from home'! I trust you will find refreshing rest to begin your week and all that God has planned for you.

I pray this will be your prayer:

"Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord, is my
strength and my song;
He has become my salvation.
In that day you will say:
Give thanks to the Lord, call
on His name;
make known among the nations
what He has done,
and proclaim that His name is
Sing to the Lord, for He had
done glorious things;
let this be known to all the
Shout aloud and sing for joy,
people of Zion,
for great is the Holy One
of Israel among you."
Isaiah 12:2-6

Partnering with you in prayer,
