This vision trip will provide me with an opportunity to see more of the ministries in Romania and it will help me determine whether Romania is the place that God is calling me to serve.
My parents are in the process of buying tickets for themselves to come along and see/ experience Romania as well. Being a single missionary, we thought it might be good to have someone else come along with me to be another set of ears and eyes on the trip. You know when you went on college visits and you wanted your parents to be with you so you could go back home and talk through the experience? Well, this vision trip isn't a college visit :) ...but the idea of having someone to bounce thoughts off of that experienced the same trip will be highly beneficial. Also, I think my parents are excited to come along so they can see the people and the culture that may become my new normal.
Folks, this trip is a little over a month away! Wowzas!
Please, pray for this trip. Pray for my parents and I to ask good questions. Pray for me to listen to God's promptings during the trip..whether this is where I will be serving or not. Pray for the dynamics of me, my parents, and a potential new place of ministry. Pray that we would have conversations open to the work that God is doing in Bucharest and how He may be including me in that. But most importantly, pray as the Spirit leads (Romans 8:26-27).
"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:3-6
