Sora Mia

23 September 2009 79 Comments

That’s “My Sister” in Romanian.  I want to tell you about a precious relationship that God has given me during my month here.  Our host family, Abi, Lily, Andrea, Alexandrea and Ade are such a wonderful family.  They are one of the few families in this village that enjoy a personal relationship with Jesus.  They walk under the freedom that Christ brings, and try to show love to all those they know.  Our first day here, after traveling for 18 hours straight everyone picked a bed and fell into a deep sleep.  Just as I was about to sit down I felt a hand in mine pulling me toward her bedroom.  Alex is 13 and one of the most precious girls I have ever met.  She pulled me into her room where we watched Romanian rap videos and tried to communicate.  It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.  Even though she is only 13, Alex is full of wisdom and maturity.  She is learning English and can communicate very well.  She graciously has been our main translator this month.  Beyond that, I had the honor of really getting to know Alex.  She and I just felt a connection and have been spending a lot of time together since.  Some mornings we wake up and do a Bible Study as I try to teach her English through Scripture.  Other days we walk through the village and eat as much icecream as our stomachs can handle.

IMG_0300Alex has reminded me of the beauty of innocence.  Her family has had a few World Race teams stay with them over the past few years, so she has learned English very well.  At nights, her favorite thing to do is sit outside and talk with me.  We talk about everything, boys, family, school, her worries, her burdens, everything.  These conversations are so precious to me.  Normal 13 year olds in America would talk about the latest fashion trends or Hannah Montana movie.  Alex, however, is concerned about her family and where their next meal will come from.  She worries about how her little brother Ade will grow up and if they will have enough money for school.  It breaks my heart, but she is so mature and strong.  I love just sitting and talking with her.  These conversations have shown me the importance of listening to people.  Everyone just wants to be heard.  They want to know that someone cares about them and that they are loved.  I can see how much talking with Alex and spending time with her means.  My encouragement for you is to look for opportunities to listen to someone today.  Everyone has a story and they just want to share it.  We can be those listening ears and tender heart that Christ would offer if he were here in the flesh.

Even a small conversation can change a life.

Who can you be Christ to today?
