This evening I had the pleasure of sitting with a lovely, young couple from Moldova at dinner. They are here at Haus Edelweiss taking the Marriage and Family counseling course together. They are absolutely precious and I enjoyed talking with them a little about their reasons for taking this course. The husband told me that in Moldova the divorce rate is somewhere around 70-75% a year! He said that as a member if his church’s leadership team he wanted to be able to go back home from this course to encourage his fellow church members and others in his town, that through Christ they can have wonderful relationships with their spouses.
His wife echoed that saying she wanted to help her husband by supporting his ministry. And to be an encouragement and example to the Christians in Moldova through a Godly marriage to her husband. They, along with other members of their church, are working to bring the divorce rate down in their country by setting examples of strong, Christ-centered marriages. Wow… what an amazing couple!!!
My prayer for them is that they continue doing amazing work for God and that their relationship will become even stronger as they pursue His will together by setting a wonderful example to their fellow Moldavians!
