I have lots of reasons why I should do that!!
Let me tell you few of them, from only the past month!!
I told you in my
update from last month about the
Glasshouse Project, that we started working on!!
it is FINISHED!!! Can you believe that?????
Less than 4
weeks!!!!! It was one of the easiest projects that I ever did in
Smiles. So easy…. because of the entire professional team that I
had around me!
first week of the project I had our architectural adviser,
here in Romania with Ad from Bosch Inveka, Holland. They were
responsible for the foundations work! Ten days later, once the job
was done, I had a Polish team, from Bosch Inveka coming here to do
the structure and the glass.
was making sure that the guys all did a good job and on time!
Before we got to the end
of the project, I had our construction adviser
here in Romania to make sure all the things were “ending up ok”!
remember before we started the project we had to do lots of
planning which created lots of stress and headaches! But with
God’s help, all these became “funny memories”. There were things
(tools) that I had them on site before I needed (that was a first
for me :), some I made sure were there on time, but some we never
found! We needed a set of ramps in case there was rain, in order
for the tractors and the machine to be able to drive on the soil.
I said at that time to our glasshouse adviser,
“we can not find these ramps in Romania so the only thing we
need to do, is to pray for the rain to stop for one month till the
job is done!!!”.
It was PERFECT weather!! No RAIN at all and the job was finished
than we expected!! God is on
our side, even when we feel that the “mountains are too high for
us to climb” and for that I will always say thank you to HIM!!
would also like to say thank you to one person that was with me
from the beginning of this project and did a lot of the job from
my side!! SIMONA
TOSITY, which is one
of our newest staff member in Smiles, having joined us in April.
Simona is doing a great job and her passion for this project is a
great encouragement for me! She takes a lot of my headaches on her
plate and deals with them!!
Thank you SIMO and
Now, because my update needs to be a short one
this month, I will try to keep it short!
was one other thing that was a great reason to party …well in
Smiles for sure!
Nina, GOT MARRIED!!!! The
great news is that she is not leaving Smiles, not now, at least!.
Maybe when they start a family, she will need some time off. She
got married with
one of our colleagues from the Gepiu Project! So, we try to keep
it in family!!
had a great wedding with lots of fun.
Please pray for both of them, for God’s
blessing over them on their new journey in life and for them as a
new family!! So, yes, another one is gone…and
you might wonder who’s next????!!! Well, stay close; you
might be in for a great surprise!!
But I won’t tell you more now…. Instead, I’m having fun with the
visits! We already had
more than 84 people visiting us just in June!!!! Lots of fun, lots
of tears and lots of stories shared with each other!!! If you
would like to come….you still have time!!! Go on this link to see
how you can do that!!
MISSION TRIP LINK
now, Mr Hoy came to tell me that ….we have to go to the meeting!!
So my dear friends I leave you now, with the encouragement to
PARTY whenever you can and have few moments off! God loves when
His children are happy and have a good time!
I remember I got some advice just before I left home, and went to
high school in Timisoara!! A huge city compared with my little
village!! Somebody came to me and said :
“Maria, have fun and enjoy
every second like it is the last one, but make sure that at the
end, God will say well done”.
My dear friends, wherever you are this summer, make sure
you do things that your Heavenly Father is proud of!! If you have
His blessing over it, all things will be great!
Enjoy this summer holiday time and keep in touch!
