I Praise God for the opportunities he has given us on this trip to minister and share His love. At times it is overwhelming the need of the gospel here and the needs of the people. We went out to the streets tuesday evening, God went before us and led us and we had divine appointments to share his love. Just to go out to the streets and say hello and shake their hands to pray for them, to listen and let them know that someone cares. Just the little things are expressions of Gods love. I had the opportunity on Thursday to go to a drop in center they have once a week for people living on the streets, it was teenagers that came and it was good, as we served them a meal, then we worshipped God and someone shared, I also shared with a few of them and had the opportunity to pray, I really felt God move as I was praying, it was an awsome blessing. This picture is of Doniel, he was one of the young people at the out reach. People on the streets here don't have all the resources to help them as we do in America. It is a difficult situation for them. I just encourage you to pray for them and us that God will give us many open doors to share His love.

I am here in Constanta, Romania with Pam and Don. God has been awesome in His faithfulness to open doors for us to meet and have fellowship with fellow believers in this area. We have also had numerous opportunities to go on outreaches to mostly Gypsy children in the outlining areas and many situations here where we have been able to share the good news. It is blessing to see people touched by the love of God. So many in this area have never even heard the gospel, the need is so great. Many of the nearby villages here have large Turkish and Gypsy populations. Our prayer is that God would continue to open more doors for us to go into these villages to share his love. Our purpose here in Constanta is to do ministry and to see what it will take for us to bring a team here early next spring to set up a missions base. We are planning, God willing to spend another month here in Constanta, then go into Turkey before returning home.
