ONE WEEK today until I fly back to Romania!! Our summer interns flew to Romania today so they will actually arrive exactly one week before I do. It won’t be long now until I get back!

In the afternoon I spent 5 or 6 hours doing preparation with Camille from my church. I never realized how much preparation goes into doing an event like this! Today we finished all of the silent auction items that will be auctioned off at the fundraiser event. There will be 32 items auctioned off at the fundraiser event. Wow, I’m so grateful to everyone who donated to make this all possible!

I also did the finishing touches on my speech that I’ll be sharing at the event. Camille gave some great advice on how to touch it up. I told her that I’m really nervous about sharing in front of everyone because I’m not a very good public speaker. She challenged me to be bold and to be confident. She also challenged me to proclaim who I am in God and to walk in it. I appreciate the mentorship that she has given to me while I have been home in Canada during this time.

In the evening I watched the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance”. The judges chose the top 20 dancers for the show and wow is it ever going to be a great season! This will be my third season watching this show and I really like it!

About Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
