Club Beyond- Part 1


The previous week I had the chance to be in a camp. This camp was different from any camp I was in. It was different, because there were many young people from different places and different religions. Club Beyond is the name used by the Military Community Youth Ministry (MCYM) to identify its ministry with military high school and middle school aged kids worldwide
There were more than 300 young people at this Club Beyond Service Project. There were five villages where they were doing a fantastic work. The great thing was that they were divided into three groups: one was building a playground for the local school, the second was playing with the Romanian kids and the third was doing VBS with them.
I was very happy to be part of every activity as a translator, even if the Americans didn't want us to help building the playground, because they said we already did mental work. But I hate wasting time and I was kind of bored after the kids went home from school, so I wanted to help and not just sit around. So I asked a great American girl (Jessica) if I could help...and she said YES! Finally, I could do something, even though it was almost nothing (staining). A lifetime experience!

As always...I let them speak about themselves, too. This was in 2011, but their goals and achievements were the same this year. So enjoy watching this:

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
