Today is Canada’s 144th birthday! Happy Canada Day to everyone! I hope everyone at home in Canada had a great day off celebrating Canada’s birthday!

It was another busy day so I guess I could just say it was a pretty busy week! In the morning I went to Sabolciu with our summer interns and also Tabita, Mircea, Norbi, Salomea and Cristina (she visited for the first time). Today was the last day of the VBS program the interns did in Sabolciu. They did an amazing job and the kids loved it!!

After we went to Sabolciu I went to the House of Joy (this is where the interns are staying)

Daniel and his brother Samuel.

with the interns for a couple of hours to hang out. It was fun just to hang out and get to know each other a bit more. Kaitlyn who is one of our summer interns is thinking about moving to Romania for at least a year and she wants to come in September which surprised me!

At 3:30pm I went with the interns to the orphan chapel. Today for the chapel we watched a movie. The movie was called “Every Child is Special”. I couldn’t believe how long the movie was! It was 2 hrs and 40 minutes. Thankfully Dani translated for Kim and I otherwise I don’t know if I would have understood all of it since it was all in the Indian language and with the Romanian subtitles. It was a good movie though because it had a good story line to it.

I had a meeting with my Cornel (my director) and Steve (one of the missionaries here) from 8:00 – 9:00pm at MacDonald’s. The meeting was basically about the situation I am going through right now with the orphan girl that I mentor (I’m sorry I cannot share any details on my blog but just please pray for her because she is going through a lot right now).

Unfortunately my director thinks it wouldn’t be a good idea to continue to mentor the girl I have been mentoring since last year which really breaks my heart to pieces because I love and care about her so much. Though I agree what he said that the situation that she is going through right now is too complicated for me to deal with and it would be better for a Romanian to give her the proper help and guidance that she needs right now.

My director told me that I can still be a part of her life but just not on a one on one basis. This is really hard for me to swallow because I love spending time with her. Now I need to just surrender this completely over to God. I would appreciate your continual prayers for this. Thank-you so much for your prayers!

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!
