And Now For Your Viewing Pleasure…

IMG_0162Well we’ve been in Romania for about 2 weeks now and on the Race for officially one month and three days.  Time has flown by to say the least.  I haven’t really had a chance to upload many of my pictures and blogs from Romania, so I thought I would try to lump a bunch all together.  This month we are ministering in a little village called Villi Techi. Our ministry is to love of the people of this village and show the Christ in every way possible.  So far we have washed carpets, picked potatoes, cooked, cleaned, made jam, painted faces, and participated in the daily lives of these wonderful people.  The village is very small, but the people have huge hearts! Every house we go in expecting to show them love, they turn around and show us more!  Many people are Christian, but live under the burden of legalism.  They don’t wear makeup or jewelry and dancing is out of the question (Hmmm sounds a lot like that small little denomination hidden in the foothills of Tennessee).  It’s been great to get to show them love and the freedom that Christ brings.  I really do like it here.  I have connected a lot with our host family, which is another blog for another day.  Just know that I love them tons, and that I’m beginning to dream with theme about what God wants to do in their village and my part in it.

I also have some exciting news! Our original race route had us going to Egypt next, however that is not going to work out.  So as of right now we are Asking the Lord for our next month of ministry.  Each team is spending the next two weeks searching after the Lord’s will and listening for his voice.  AIM has a few contacts that we may meet up with, but many of us will be praying and following the Lord’s leading completely.  I am very excited about this next step!  All we know is that we will be in Eastern Europe somewhere.  From there we were supposed to go to Jordan in November, but it’s looking we will be headed to Turkey instead!  From there we will hopefully still be heading to Israel in December! I hope that this is the case!!  Please be in prayer for us this month as we learn in to God’s voice.

Also a quick update about support, I still have about $4,000 left to raise.  My next deadline is November 1st, for which I need $1000 more and then the finial deadline is January 1st for the rest of the amount.  I thank you all so much for all of your wonderful help and sacrifices in getting me on the field.  I am SOOO excited about the ministry God is doing here and through all of your gifts.  Be blessed knowing that He is up to great things.  Ok, without any further delay, I present a snapshot of my life in Romania so far:

    It is wonderful to see a current picture of you. I miss you so very much, but I know that the Lord is using you in a mighty way for the Kingdom! I’m praying that Jesus will comfort you during the times of missing your family and friends. I’m also praying that He will continue to mold you in to the perfect woman of God that He is creating through you. I’m asking for His clear direction and guidance with your next steps. “He is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path”. For some reason, He uses a lamp to guide us and you remeber the lamps from Israel? They are very small and give only a little light. Just enough light to see the next step. I’m praying that God the Father with clearly mark your next step and that you and the team will know without a doubt where to go and what to do.

    I’m so proud of you and can’t wait to hear more about what God is doing in the world through you and the team. I love you dearly.

    Proverbs 25:25 “Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.”
    It is so good to see and hear you are well. I didn’t realize how anxious I was about you until I saw you walking the streets of Tigur Mourish (sp).
    Thank you for posting. We will pray for your support, and that your team picks up the scent of God’s lead.

    Jennifer,

    I love you so much! I’m so proud of you overcoming your fears and just moving forward. I’ll be praying for where you go next. I’m sure the next chapter in your story will be even more amazing than the last!
