 “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.”                   Psalm 28:7

Two weeks today my parents and my brother Jonathan will fly to Romania and they will arrive on the 31st!! I am so thankful of how God is providing for the items for the gift bags for the children at the Sabolciu gypsy village but we are still quite short on the funds for the food packages for the families in the village. I think my Mom has only collected so far $350 and we need $800 in total. If you are at all interested in helping out and sowing seeds into the lives of these precious families please contact me or my parents soon. Thanks so much!! Blessings!!

Today I felt a bit overwhelmed by all of the details! I have so much to do and so much to prepare for when my family will come to Romania and also when I will go to Africa for the mission school that I fell very behind on my blog, e-mail, journal and reading because I’m trying to organize and prepare everything. Please pray for me to have better wisdom with my time and to be able to get everything done on time. Thanks!!

I am totally loving being a part of the Harvest School 17 group page! It has been so awesome to connect with the students before we actually meet in person in Pemba, Mozambique! I just love how we are encouraging each other, praying for each other and even giving each other laughs and smiles from our posts! I just love each one of them and I can’t wait to meet them in six weeks!!!

Oh, today I found out that Mozambique is only one hour behind Romania (so 6 hours ahead of Toronto). That is so awesome that I won’t be much jet lag from the time difference but I will still be flying like around 16 hours from Budapest to Pemba, Mozambique so I’m sure I’ll still be tired when I arrive after two days of traveling and with an overnight in Johannesburg as well! Oh, I can’t wait to get there!! 🙂

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!
