Return to Romania

I returned to Romania on March 21st and jumped in with both feet running! 
I was welcomed with open arms by all who had missed me while I was gone!

 
Mari dedicated her life to Jesus and was baptized!  Thank you Lord for the fruit of our labor!

We had a team here about a week after I arrived.  We spent a couple of days down at the boy's house getting things ready for our summer camps!!  I had good kitchen help!  One evening we went to the mall because some of the ladies wanted to shop!

Wedding time!!  One of our transition graduates got married to a girl that he led to Christ through the church that he attends!  What a wonderful celebration it was of this new life that they are starting together!!  Congratulations Ramona and Florin!

Furlough Continued...

It was wonderful being home for an extended time.  I was able to connect with friends and people that I don't get to spend time with very often.  I spent a good amount of time with my parents at the beach, playing cards, eating out and working on puzzles.  Of course, I spoke in church and connected with people there.


My friends....I don't know what I would do without them.  They are a constant blessing in my life and I don't know what I would have done without them.  We were able to get together and play cards, do a homemade escape room and just spend some much needed time together and chat about life.  Thank you, Jesus, for these sweet girls that you have placed in my life.

My niece turned 8 years old and she requested a llama cake for her llama party!  I was happy to oblige.  We visited an alpaca farm for this special day of hers.  This was the first time since my nephew Jett turned one (he's 8 now) that I was home for one of their birthdays.  The others all wanted me to reassure them that I would be home for their next birthday!  If only it was that easy!!

Furlough

I've spent the last month and a few days stateside, in California, on furlough.  I've visited many family and friends, been to the beach, had countless meals at my favorite Mexican restaurant-Loma Linda, invited friends over for dinner and had precious moments with special friends.  I have about a month left to go in my furlough.  I'm so very grateful for my extended time this year to especially spend time with my Mom and Dad and have some extra time away to reflect, rest and refresh!








I was blessed to get to go to DISNEYLAND with my very good friends!

I celebrated my birthday with three different cakes!



My siblings and nieces and nephews and I had a snow day up at Hume!
