The departure date for our team is August 12th, which is just around the corner. The energy and excitement continues to build. I find tremendous comfort and peace with the members of our team. Some have been to Moldova on past mission trips but there are several neophytes leaning on the leadership of Miller. As one of four older males (not exactly sure of the age break point for “older”), I look forward to working with the teenage boys and hopefully being able to contributing to their spiritual walk.
A neighbor called me after hearing that I was traveling to Moldova to share the message of two missionaries from Russia who spoke at his Franklin church. The prominent message was about the need for Christian outreach to the children in their country. At the service, these missionaries passed out lapel pin printed in Russian the words – “Love the Children.” The Lord is definitely at work with all aspects of Sweet Sleep and CERI.
The packing for me is the start of the journey. I anticipate the journey will forever change me and influence me on my spiritual walk … a life long journey for the glory of God. Please keep our team in your prayers and heart.
