2011-Blog Stats in Review

This was sent to me by WordPress, and it was pretty interesting, esp to see who is visiting and commenting!   I thought I would share this with you all.  Happy New Years!


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.


Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,700 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

It’s a BOY!!!

Christmas Program

What a great success!  Praise the Lord. Ana, Ancuta and the team did a great job leading the kids in a wonderful Christmas program.  The word got out and the room was packed.  Looking at the pictures, I saw so many faces that are new to Sunday School!  This was a great opportunity for new ears to hear of the true meaning of Christmas.

The choir from Diakonia came from the city to share wonderful music with the children.

Not exactly what I had in mind…

when I suggested that Bogdan practice feeding a baby….


I just wanted to ask for prayer as the kids prepare for their Christmas program. Ana sent this picture of their rehersal.  Their Christmas program is on December 18th.

Rehersal time--don't they look serious.


I just found out that our Maria, our lovely sweet Maria, has left Stroiesti.  She is 20 years old and has been a fixture in Sunday school and camp.  Maria is now a nanny  for 2 children in Italy.  Please pray for her as she embarks on this new adventure in her life.  We pray that she will be around good people, even believers. I don’t know how long she will be gone, but we pray she will be safe and have a positive experience.

Maria, last Christmas


Familiar Faces

It was wonderful to see Scott, Trevor, and Sergey on Dec 5th.  These guys were part of the team that came this past summer to help with camp.  I sent a copy of this picture the kids in Romania and they were so excited to see the familiar faces and wanted to know when they are coming back??!!!!
