We're Returning to Moldova Soon

We will leave for the Republic of Moldova January 26 and return March 2. We will teach graduate social work courses at the Baptist College of Theology and Education in Chisinau, the capitol of Moldova. Formerly a part of the Soviet Union, Moldova is one of the smallest and poorest countries in Europe.

Our first visit to Moldova was in 2005. Above, you'll see a picture of our social work students at the Baptist College of Theology and Education from that earlier visit.

We appreciate the support and prayers of our family and friends, and support from the faculty and staff at the Baylor School of Social Work, who are helping us to purchase social work textbooks in the Russian and Romanian languages and to support the social ministries of our Moldovan students.

Hey, this is just great! I've just discovered it and I wish I had kept up daily--it would be more as if I had gone with you! What you are saying really applies to so much of the world (as you know) and it helps to travel and see that we can live in other situations, as well as our own.
