Spring has finally come to Suceava.  It was really cold the past week and there was even snow in the mountains where we will have our wedding.  Last fall, I said, if there is rain on our wedding day, it won’t matter it will still be a perfect day and I joking said, even if there is snow, it will be a perfect day.  I never thought there would be snow in May… So I’m praying there won’t be snow June 4th.

Sunday School is going well. The kids are earning their final points for camp and ask me all the time if they are going to camp.  They are so excited. The kids and teens are learning their verses and still love to sing!

English classes in Stroiesti are going well.  Many of the students have spring fever, so the class sizes are smaller. But those who remain for English lessons are more serious about learning and I have found we can move faster.

In general the families in Stroiesti are doing well.  Folks are working in the fields planting the crops.  One family brought home a new baby last week and another family announced there is a baby on the way.

Bogdan and I have been making preparations for the wedding as well as preparing his apartment for us both. Bogdan and I are  having a good time preparing a home together. Over the weekend, we put cabinets in the kitchen (kitchens here don’t come with cabinets!) and did some major cleaning.  We have found we have a lot of the same stuff and who needs 2 toasters??  So items like this are getting packed up for the future center in Stroiesti and other items are being given away. I am currently washing clothes that will be given to the kindergarten teachers to pass out to their students. These childern are too small to go to summer camp and the teachers know better than anyone else who needs the clothes most. 

Please remember us in your prayers.

  1. Praying for you two daily, Melissa! Thanks for the great update! A little news here: Andy turned 10 (can you believe it), Brock and Andy are enjoying being on a tennis team this spring, Corrie Lee wants to be an art teacher (and maybe a nun like “Maria” on the Sound of Music, but she’s just not sure yet!), and Daniel and Brock love playing golf. Also, haircuts with Daniel is a full contact sport which we just experienced again today. *Sigh! Eric and I are doing well! Love you!

  2. You’re being prayed for…and Bogdan too!
