Sustaining Grace

Rich Davis on December 22, 2020

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14). "Fear not!" said the missionaries. We are not going to give a treatise on grace or on the Incarnation. We simply desire to express our gratitude to the Lord for His sustaining grace and to many of you who make it possible for us serve the Lord via your prayers and financial support. Both Jo Ann and I experienced a wonderful semester teaching at the Christian University (UDG) during this...

Meanwhile, Back on the Field . . .

Rich Davis on October 25, 2020

Quarantine Blessings There are several differing opinions on the issue of quarantine, but Jo Ann and I found it to be a huge blessing as we arrived back in Moldova. We were required to remain in our apartment for 14 days without leaving for any reason. First, we were absolutely spoiled rotten by our Moldovan partners, Mihai and Irina.

Unexpected Events Three weeks ago, we had to make a difficult decision about evacuating Moldova in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. We were not primarily concerned about becoming sick but we did not want to become a burden on our national partners or fellow missionaries should that happen. There were three human voices speaking to us about this decision (ABWE administration, our national partners, and the American Embassy) all of which encouraged us to evacuate. Prayer along with these voices brought us to the conclusion that the wisest thing to do was temporarily leave Moldova until things returned to normal...

Evacuation

Rich Davis on March 15, 2020

Dear Friends, As a precautionary measure, we have been given a strong recommendation from our ABWE leadership to evacuate from Moldova before the boarders and airport close due to the Coronavirus. Though we are well and are prepared for the restrictions that most other European countries are experiencing, there are concerns about the health system here. Because of a shortage of hospital beds and medical supplies, hard choices will be made concerning the priority of who will be treated. Since we are foreigners and not considered young, we might be turned away should we require medical assistance. The US Embassy...
