Well Lets Get This Started
So I have no idea how many people will actually end up reading this, but I was going to have to start this blog anyways so I decided to get a little head start.
Let me start by explaining the reason I'm having to start this blog. This past summer (summer 2009) I went with my church (FTBC) on a mission trip to Moldova. After only 10 days there I fell in love with the country, the people in it, and the work I was able to do. This being the summer before my senior year, I was searching for my after graduation plans. I was still unsure of where I would be going post graduation and what school if any I would be attending. After returning from Moldova I had a fire burning in my heart for missions there. So I began seeking out an opportunity to stay there after I graduated high school. After many conversations and prayers, the plans were actually coming together.
Eugene, the paster at the church in Moldova, said there was an internship opportunity for me at the church. So i will be working with media related projects and photography with the church.
I'm so so so excited about the opportunity I have been given to serve in Moldova, and I cannot wait to embark on my adventure.
This blog's purpose it to keep those that care about me and the journey God has sent me on informed of what's going on on the other side of the world.
Right now, about 4 months away from leaving, I ask for prayer. Prayer that God will prepare my heart for a heart of selfless giving as I serve in a foreign country. I pray for strength and wisdom as well, as I will be faced with many new experiences. And also prayer that God will take care of all the funding and needs like that before I leave.
I will use this space to keep everyone updated as things start to unfold.
God Bless, Bethany
