So, sorry I have not posted lately; I have been really busy!! I really do not have time to post now as it is one AM here, but I just wanted to say that I am leaving for Constansa, RO in the morning and I'll probably not post for a few days. I can not wait to see a beach!!! Living here it is hard not having a beach after growing up in the No'east. Talk to y'all later!!!

OK, the last few days I have been doing early summer stuff. The cherry harvest is coming in and even though we only have three large trees and a lot of smaller ones it is tons of work!! Yesterday I spent a while picking, as I will today also. Yesterday I got in about 8.5 liters. Not a lot but a good effort I guess. The tree that I was working on does not even look like it has been picked at all!!! I estimate that all together we have about 250 liters of cherries on our property.
Tuesday I did some study, ran, etc., and played almost three hours of soccer. Praise the LORD for everyone that came out. Between dad and I we were able to invite over a half a dozen new kids out to church and kids ministries. Please pray that they come out and are saved. This area needs true salvation so badly. Sometimes I can't get it off my mind.
I wrote some new verses to the B I B L E yesterday. In Romanian of course, I might post them later. My hair just got cut off, and although I would like to post more I am leaving for Romania in a few minutes, so I need to go. Talk to y'all later.

OK, I'll give you all a really quick update on the past few days of my life. Last night about 11:30 I got to go for a nice run, the stars were great, even if I did get chased by a few dogs, this morning I ran all the games at our kids ministries played some soccer this afternoon, worked around the house and yard, picked blue and white mullberries with my dad, went for another nice run in the hills behind our town, and studied. How is that for a run on sentence!! Please pray for me as I preach tomorrow morning. I should do Ok as long as I trust God and do not get nervous. Preaching in Romanian is not a problem for me unless I think that it will be, that's when I mess up. Pray that it goes well and the Lord is glorified. Today it was 46 in the sun!!!! That C by the way, or in other words about 115 F. Perfect weather to play soccer in. See Y later

Howdy everyone, wow I have been wicked busy!! Sorry to anyone I owe an e-mail to, I will write you just wait a little. I just got back from three hours of intense soccer, a nice workout to say the least. Please pray for all the kids we make contact with through this ministry, they need Christ so badly. The heat here has been brutal about 34 in the shade most days. I went out for a ten mile run yesterday, in about 31 degree weather, and felt like an absolute whimp after looking at my watch!!! Running hills in the heat is awesome, it's kind of like putting tons of hot sauce on a burger, it kills, but it's addicting!!
Saturday our ministries went well and I was able to go for a nice run in the woods with my dad in the afternoon. Sunday was good with lots of visitors and a good crowd all around. I had to go down in the afternoon and cut the grass at church as it rained on Friday and Saturday. For the first time ever I was able to do most of it with a weed eater instead of a scythe. Praise God for the elec being on most of the time now!! For those of you who use easy stuff ike lawn mowers etc. a scythe is a tool composed of a long wooden handel rounded at one end with a cross handel in the middle, having a three of four foot steel blade that is sharp enough to cut off your foot, used in backward countries. Seriously, my dad almost cutoff his thumb sharpeneing it last year. Iy may not be easy to use, but boy does it give you a good core workout!! We had volley ball for teens in the afternoon and were able to reach about 8 new kids with the Gospel, plus a lot of repeats. Pray for the work here.
Please pray for a man named Vitalic's father. Vitalic and his wife are saved, praise God, but his family is not. Last week Dad and I went fishing with Vitalic's Dad; at the moment his name escapes me, some missionary huh??; and both dad and I were able to get in a pretty good witness with him. He so needs Christ's salvation. By the way these are some of the pics from my preaching trip to Kiev, Chernivtsi, several places in the East. It was such a blessing to see four souls come to Christ and the Gospel spread forth. I forgot, last Thursday Dad and I took a short midnight trip to Romania to bring some frends to the airport. I could feel all your prayers at the border crossings. Praise God we had no problems and had a great time. Ukraine is nuts, out of the many countries I have been in it is the hardest to get in to. Every one I talk to says the same thing too. Bro. Sutek, the man who lead our preaching trip a missionariy in Romania, almost blew his top trying to come in through the border. He said it was harder to get into than Russia was ten years ago. Life in a 3rd world, communist wasteland. signing off

I do not have a lot of time to post at the moment, but life is good, as always. My dad, brother, and I got to go fishing on Friday. No not that kind of fishing, the kind with worms and metal hooks. I am so blessed to have an awesome brother and dad who are a great joy to be around. We did not catch anything, but we had a good time. On Saturday we had a good kids ministry and in the afternoon my Mom and Dad went out while Jedidiah and I worked on my mom's secret garden. Also, yesterday we went fishinig again, with a friend, and we caught some fish to put in my mom's fountain. They look really cool!! Sunday was a blessing. Not many people were out, around 20, but the spirit was good and several visitors were there. Please pray for two people in the church, one is named Mrs. Alexandra, she is very healthy but 3 weeks ago she started having really bad nerve pain and is in the hospital at the moment. The other person is an older man named Leon,. He is not saved and is having problems with a growth in his neck, he really needs Christ. Talk to y'all later!!
