|"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"|
Our time in Chisinau has done much to prepare us for future ministry in Soroca. That preparation continued throughout October with language lessons and opportunities to minister in the church. I finished another block of Romanian classes. Unfortunately, however, the last block will not be offered due to a lack of students. Our choir traveled to minister in a village church for a Harvest Sunday, Viola continued to minister in music, and I preached last Sunday night.
After several dozen phone calls, our furlough calendar is set. We look forward to visiting our supporting churches and explaining our plans for the future. It will be a blessing to also be in a few new churches during our time in the States. Other furlough preparations are coming along nicely.
Last week we spent a day in Soroca, this time to look at apartments. With the information we have gathered, it is time to think, discuss, pray, and ask advice about our housing decision. Finally, the pictures below are from Chisinau Day- possibly our favorite Moldovan holiday.
