Hughes News #46

"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"

Dear Friends,  

For two weeks in June we hosted a schoolteacher as she conducted a survey trip before joining a medical group with which she ministered in northern Moldova.  It was enjoyable sharing our knowledge of Moldova with her.  Among other things, we were able to take a day trip to Soroca with the Grosses. 
Us with Sarah
One Tuesday night in June, I taught the Russian Bible study at the church.  The hour and a half class was the biggest speaking challenge I have had to this point.  I taught on the book of Philemon and overall I am pleased with how it went well.  I got distracted by the class interaction and I learned that I cannot speak and write in Russian at the same time, but these discoveries will help with lesson preparation in the future.
With the Grosses leaving for furlough next week, our team will be apart for nearly a year.  While there will always be more plans to be made, we are pleased with what is already in place.  We have a doctrinal statement, conflict-resolution plan, and ministry goals for our team.  Ministry philosophy has been discussed and specific requests have been brought before our Father.  As we continue to prepare, we eagerly look forward to what God will do in Soroca!
Soroca- Our future home!

In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes

For Prayer:
1. Decisions regarding finishing out our first term
2. Plans for a furlough beginning the end of the year
3. God to prepare hearts in Soroca

For Praise:
1. Profitable time with Sarah, our visitor
2. The chance to teach and the accompanying lessons learned
3. Absolutely beautiful summer weather
