Michigan today, Romania tomorrow!

Today is the day. I'll be boarding a plane that will take me to Paris, then another plane that will take me to Bucharest. From there, I will travel to Brasov where I will spend the next week(ish) working with Firm Foundations at Children's Hospital in Brasov.

People keep asking me if I'm nervous. I can honestly say there isn't shed of nervousness in me right now. Why?
  • I'm traveling with an amazing group of people.
  • I get to go love on babies and the people who serve them every day.
  • I get to be Jesus to every person I come in contact with, in Romania and all along the way (though this is true every day).
  • I know God planned every detail and He's got it all figured out.
  • We're taking the Baby Closet international!
  • I'm traveling with an amazing group of people! I know, I know... I already said that, but it's so true.
We leave late tonight, and arrive tomorrow evening at our final destination. The journey to where God is taking us is long, but as with every charge from him, the journey is part of the adventure. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us!


  1. WOW!!! May God bless you and the team you are traveling with! I am so envious Karen-what a wonderful mission adventure God is sending you on!

  2. Well, if anyone was nervous before (though I can't imagine why ;-) ) there are some of the best reasons there could ever be to not be nervous. Such an exciting time. What an excellent cause. Prayers are with you and the group and everyone you touch.

  3. Happy flight!!! God is going to give you an amazing trip! Love the babies for us!!!

  4. I miss you already!
    World-changers, be radically transformed!

  5. How awesome that you are doing this Karen! Praying for you. I have never been to Romania but a part of my heart has always belonged there after reading about it when I was a teenager. May God bless your time there.
