The Trouble with Tomorrow

Rich and Jo Ann Davis on April 22, 2021

Yesterday “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) The Lord gave us two primary ministries in which to serve while in Moldova. For almost four years we have had the privilege of teaching in the Christian University (UDG) here in Chișinău. The current semester has been the most satisfying teaching experience to date. This will sound enigmatic, but the reason for evaluating the semester so highly is due in part to Covid 19! It turns out that the university is blessed with many great teachers from other countries who come regularly to teach one- or two-week...

Apple Pie

Rich Davis on February 17, 2021

"Keep my commandments and live; keep my teaching as the apple of your eye" (Prov. 7:2).  Teaching the Word here in Moldova is what keeps us motivated and full of joy.  "And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also" (2 Timothy 2:2). One of the best ways to enjoy nice crisp apples is to make a delicious apple pie! Teaching here in the Christian University is like eating apple pie for us because we get the joy of teaching students who are serious about serving our...

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. Our pantries and refrigerator were filled with food when we arrived and when we needed something, all we had to do was call Mihai and the purchases were made and delivered to our door! We were almost ready to pray that...

When the Going Gets . . .

Rich Davis on August 4, 2020

Threatening There was a shadow over the beauty of Spring this year as fear of Covid 19 gripped the world. We were in Moldova preparing to face the threat along with our neighbors and partners when the voices of wisdom advised us to evacuate the country. There are moments in life when taking a step back is not a bad move! There was no certainty that we would both remain free of the virus and we did not want to become a burden on our partners in Europe. As we wrote in our last newsletter, “Three human voices were speaking ...
