Monday Memo from Romania-7/13/09


Dear Prayer Partners,

Today began our summer camp season at Camp of Joy (Tabara Bucuriei). We have 4 of our teens who are counselors or workers this year, and we have 10 who will be campers. What a blessing it is to see how God has been working in their lives - especially Ioan and Angi, who are brother and sister and were both saved on Feb. 29, 2008 at a youth rally in our church. They have grown so much and have a great burden for their father as well as their older brother and sister to be saved. Please pray for them and for Gabriel and Teodora as they minister to children at the camp.

We are working on the plans for VBS in August and for a weekly childrens program that will follow. We have the opportunity to rent another part of the building where our church meets so that we can have extra rooms for children's classes and for a church office. The owner is giving us a price of 200 euros (about $280), which is about half price compared to other places. We really need this space in order to divide our growing Sunday School classes and to provide a work space for ministry planning and operations on-sight. We are going ahead by faith, though this is above our monthly budget. Please pray that our church will continue to grow and be
able to also give toward this important need.

Pray for Rebekah this week because she is a camper at Silver State Baptist Youth Camp in Colorado. We are asking God to make this an extra special camp experience for her just before she starts colleg in the fall. Also, Bethany is a camper this week here in Romania at Camp of Joy. Please pray for her as well.

About our family car...still waiting to hear the price for repairs (and after 3 weeks of waiting, I am beginning to get a bit nervous). I know it will be substantial; so please pray for God's provision.

Thank-you so much for your faithful prayers!

Your servant in Christ,
