All Things Beautiful

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. “(Ecclesiastes 3:11-12) It’s spring and nature is coming to […]

With Love

Dear friends, As most of you know, I have worked with Word Made Flesh for twelve years: six years in Romania and another six in Moldova. It’s amazing how time flies and as I look back I realize how wonderfully God has cared for all my needs over the years. He picked me up when I […]

We Finally Have Our Own Space!

This year has brought us so much change. We finally have our own space! A new Community Center!  We bought a condo, a semi- basement, about 2,000 square feet, and have transformed the dusty bare brick shell into an inviting, colorful labyrinth of rooms. As we (WMF Moldova staff) visited with friends in the U.S. this month, […]

Restoration

The Process Of Restoration

The renovations at our new Community Center have been under way since January and progress is visible. Last week one of our pre-teens came to see the place for the first time and exclaimed with delight, “Hey, you could actually live here!” I am so glad she saw that side of the coin as I […]

To Dream

Doina* was one of the first children we met when we began partnering with a state-run boarding school for vulnerable children in Moldova in 2010. She immediately stood out to us as a bright, spunky child who was full of energy and ready to learn. As we got to know Doina through our after-school program, […]

The Father’s Divine Love

“Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom,” said the thief on the cross (Luke 23:42). The confession of the thief is a fulfilment of the words previously uttered by Jesus: “For the Son of Man came that he might save the lost” (Luke 19:10). The words of the Son of God speak of His mission […]

Together We Can

We Just Made a Brave Decision

As a team, we recently made the bravest decision of our entire six years together: we followed our intuition rather than our logic and said “yes” to buying a property. We have talked about buying a Community Center for several years, but the costs involved kept us dragging our feet. Suddenly on the Eve of […]

Finding Hope In Dusty Spaces

  In the cold corner of a drafty room we’re huddled together. Our only comforts: a small space heater, our friends, and the grace of God. It’s January in Moldova, and morning prayer is about to begin. Over the sounds of mixing cement we give thanks. At times, the dull whining of drill reaches a peak […]

Back Home

I flew back to the United States one week ago. I have returned to my family, the Blue Ridge Mountains, & my sweet, sweet fiancé. Reverse culture shock has never been easier, but I still deeply miss the people of WMF and Moldova. As I sat around the Christmas dinner table—and many other moments in these last few days—I […]
