As I continue to reflect on what God did in Romania I am humbled by the opportunity to serve these amazing leaders. They do not have the resources we enjoy in the U.S. (resources we often take for granted). They are eeking out an existence in very diffficult circumstances. Coming together isn't easy either because they have come out of the communist era where they didn't know who to trust.
Yet, they are committed to the Lord, desire to serve Him faithfully, and try to live their faith in boldness and God-honoring ways.
I suggested that they consider bringing someone else to speak to them--I have been there for three years running. They refused. Why? They said, "Because we trust you." I feel the weight of that. For that reason alone, I will be back in Romania, God willing, next year.
