Thanks so much for your nice comments and words of encouragement on my Spark Page and for my special Spark Goodie!
We are working in the Ploiesti area of Romania - we fly into Bucharest and it's about an hour from there. We have also done work in the Brasov area (that's where our daughter-in-law is from). In fact, her mother is originally from the Constanta area.
Your mission work sounds exciting too, and I know it's a blessing just like ours is. Romania is still wide open to the Gospel and we sure need to reach the precious people of Romania while there's still light there. Many people ask why we go there when there's plenty of work to be done here. Our response is we do work here too, but as Henry Blackaby says, "Go where God is at work and get in on it." And He's definitely at work in Romania!
I'm Norma from Mississippi. My husband and I lead groups to Romania. In fact, we are leaving on June 13th with a team of 22. What area of Romania do you work? We bring doctors, nurses, pharmacists, children's workers, we do a ladies conference and distribute eyeglasses. This will be our 20th trip to Romania. My husband is a full-time evangelist. We love the Romanian people. In fact, our son, who is a doctor, is married to a Romanian girl who was his interpreter on the first trip he went.
