Healthy Mind, Body, and Soul

CBF realized early in its time the importance of keeping its field personnel healthy emotionally, physically, and spiritually. From those thoughts came the CBF member care program. Volunteer counselors are assigned to each field personnel to assist them in their journey of good health. There are also volunteer doctors, pastors, dietitians, and various others who help.

The Gypsy team is blessed to have Judy and Rick Landon as our member care providers. They do an excellent job of keeping up with us and our various ministries. They are always willing to listen and give counsel with encouragement when needed. Through CBF's guidance, the Landons visit our homes yearly or as funds permit, to see in person how we are doing. Recently Judy and Rick made a swing through central and eastern Europe. It was fun to have them since they have been friends of ours, the Stocks, for several years. We talked about many subjects, ate some good Hungarian food, and in the picture provided you can see Rick speaking at one of our Hungarian Gypsy churches.

Thank you Rick and Judy for volunteering to be on our team and being our friends. Thank you CBF for being proactive in caring for our health.

Dedication in Church Dedication

The Bethlehem Baptist Church in Vulcanesti, Moldova--the real church, not the building--is getting ready to dedicate their building. They are busy finishing the wiring, sealing the roof, putting up gutters and eave spouts, and painting the interior, all hopefully before the dedication service on Sunday, October 25. They are also praying for the funds to pay for all of this plus the gas line to the building so that they can enjoy heat this winter. We can pray with them!

Dubbing Day 3 - in Czech

After a couple of weeks, Keith and Shane have started dubbing again! This time, the work has been to record the Czech voices. Beginning in Děčin, continuing in Litoměřice, and ending in Prague, it has been a busy day. Though a lot of progress was made today, there is still a lot of work to be done tomorrow.
