Somehow, in the hustle and bustle of our last month in the states, I drafted this e-mail and never hit "send." Oops!

Family News...

Below is a brief glimps into what has taken place in our family and in Romania this summer. If you have time, visit the Pas cu Pas Facebook page and our personal Facebook pages to see pictures.

Our Romanian family has had a busy summer that is just now tapering down from three months of almost non-stop ministry including:

Three interactive retreats for children in group homes
Four camps for four age groups from four orphanages in four weeks
Multiple trips with kids to the water park near Beclean
Training meetings and monthly "family" dinners in Cluj
Several day outreaches to the nursing home in Nuseni
And, of course, weekly playtime with babies and toddlers at Prichindel orphanage

We are blessed to have Skype and the ability to make cheap international calls to keep in touch with our volunteers. But we are so ready to be with them again, face to face!
Our big news here is, of course,

John Gabriel Nechita!

Born on June 13th, at 7lb 4 oz and 19 inches long, John share's his grandpa Nechita's name and birthday. We are all very much in love with our sweet little blessing!

Our time in the States continues to be a special season for us. Being here for John's birth was definitely a blessing! We have enjoyed very precious time with family in Indiana since and soon we'll be packing up for some fun and ministry in Michigan and Colorado. We fly back to Romania September 24th.

Please pray that we would walk in God's wisdom and peace during these last six weeks. Our goal is to go home rested and refreshed for ministry with inspiration and boldness from the Holy Spirit!
