The Church Launch


It has been a few weeks since I posted.  The reasoning is at least 2-fold:

  1. We launched the church!  After months of building a core team, organizing groups, and finding a location, we had our first Sunday Morning church service.  We had around 150 people, including children (some counted 170, but I think it might’ve been a bit high!).  The service was phenomenal.  Steven and the worship team rocked the house, Pastor Marius from Braila was there to give us a welcome.  We had a video from Cristian Barbosu, and Pastor Cristi gave a great message about how our faith in Jesus can empower us to do impossible things – like walk on water.  The next week, our numbers were more subdued, but we had around 60 including kids.  We’ve had some technical issues – Moldovan Batteries making our sound equipment fail, the children’s toilet blocking up – but overall, we’ve launched a great ministry!
  2. Our family was visiting.  If you haven’t been following my wife’s photo blog then you wouldn’t know that her mom and sister-in-law, along with our niece and nephew have been visiting us.  It has been a spectacular time, but it’s also been very busy!  They just left, so it got quiet here!

Anyway, we’ll get a newsletter out soon with more pictures and info.  If you’d like to sign up for our newsletter, click here!

This week we should be back up with Wednesday Hope!
