On the Mission Field

At the beginning of September I was invited by great people to translate for some Austrian people. At first I was reluctant to go, but God encouraged me and gave me courage to do it for His glory. So, I accepted the invitation because of Him! He promised to give me the words to speak and that He'll be near to me along these days: oh, He's so faithful to His words... that's how it was. I felt Him accompanying me everywhere I went.

I feel like I shouldn't write about what we did there, because we did it for God's glory and I'm bragging about Him and His awesomeness, not about what some people or I, myself, do or did.

I want to encourage you to trust God through every circumstance and to rely on Him for help! He's always there for you. Listen to His voice... I'm convinced that you also delight in hearing your Bridegroom's voice as I do. So, invest in this relationship!

Here are some pics with my comments to them:

I never was in such a slum as this... it's true,
 I saw many poor people and God showed me inferior
living conditions,  but this was so horrible.
I was crying to God for these men,
women and children... crying for mercy.
My heart broke when I saw that place! 



Kids playing at a broken keyboard...

They need help, but not just material help...
what they really need is a family!

Cooking outside

This is how the "houses" look like!

Being eager for the kids program...
but what happens after we leave? Hm...
my heart is aching for them!

They need people to show them Love, not just
during a day, but more then that...


This incident touched my heart deeply: these kids' house is that place outside,  which you can see in the background picture. I wanted to make them a picture because they were so precious; smiling brightly and hugging each other. So lovely... aren't they (in the two pics)? 

This cute little girl stuck with me during our visit!
I'm thankful to God for giving me the opportunity to grow closer to Him and to understand (a little bit of) His heart for people.

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…
