7/7/2022 – Brasov, Romania

July 7 (Day 132): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a rainy day in Brasov today. Dark clouds are so low and the mountains around are covered with fog. The weather influences the mood and makes you feel sad and sleepy. But I know that there is sun behind the clouds and this weather will not last forever.

Yesterday we had a good time at women’s Bible study where we discussed the phenomenon of change in our life. God allows dark times and our lives change and the changes sometimes are so hard. But we must learn to adapt to new circumstances to new environment and God will help us to write a new chapter in our life. This topic is so important for people who are away from home and worry about their future. I hope the material of MaryJo Burchard that I shared with the ladies would be helpful and will encourage ladies to make plans and move ahead with their lives.

My daughter, Kxxx, will come back to Romania this weekend I will go home. I want to go home but it will be hard to part with my grandchildren.

Our counselor Rxxxx shared the photos of sand therapy he had with a 9-year-old boy form the families of refugees that came to Odesa when their village was occupied. The first picture shows the members of his family. He identified himself with a little mouse who wants to stay in the hole and don’t want to come out. But then gradually the mouse was able to go out and accept some things he can enjoy. Then little by little many things appeared in his life that bring him joy and comfort. He finished the story with the words: “they all lived together and there was peace”

Now it is a harvest time in Ukraine, when the wheat of the fields is being harvested. It’s a very hard task now. The field workers risk their lives every day, they can become a target of air attack or hit mines on the field.

Please, pray for agrarian workers who often have to work under fire.

In Christ,

  1. Our Father in heaven,
    Deliver us from evil.
    Lead us not inro temptation.
    Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    Thy will be done.


  2. Dear Lxxx,
    Thanks for the update and for the pictures.
    Praying for your daughter to arrive safely and for your great transition back home. May God give you strength as you say good bye to your daughter and grandchildren and May He give you much grace as you go home to readjust to war life!
    Love in Christ,


  3. Heavenly Father, the psalmist sang about harvest In Psalm 126: Those who sow in tears shall reap with joy.” Lord, in this time of trial, bring in the sheaves of Ukraine that the nations may be fed.


  4. Lxxx, my heart has been hurting for you and for so many, and prayers often without words. Thank you for your service to write every day.

    Dear Christians in Ukraine and surrounding countries,

    You are leading the way. You are giving the world a model to show us how we are to do this.
    In many other wars, because there was no social media, the world couldn’t see so much. But now, with todays technology, we have your examples of service, evangelism, perseverance, selflessness, networking, quick adaptations, and much more…You are leading the way for the rest of the world.

    As we wait for maranatha, I am grieved for you for such pain and loss and pray over all of your needs.



  5. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what is happening in your part of the world. The picture and mention of the Ladies Bible study is particularly encouraging. The picture and description of the workers in the field is a grim reminder of the reality of war to those of us who are not there. I can look across the road and see the recently baled hay in the pasture, and it is hard to imagine. As someone else said, you have reminded us to keep praying. Thank you


  6. Dear Lxxx,
    Wind picture of your Bible Study- beautiful smiles.

    Gods news that Rxxxx can use sand therapy to help the children.

    Praying for the workers of the harvest – the picture of the field, farm equipment and fire was unique and made an impression.

    Thank you for taking time and thought and care to help us understand and learn.
