Like A Clam

Rich and Jo Ann Davis on June 13, 2021

Never Ending Surprises We were sure that the Lord had completed giving us all the surprises necessary for this year, but we were mistaken! By way of introduction, let us begin by recalling a short list of missionaries who planned to go to Spain but did not made it: Jonah The Apostle Paul Rich and Jo Ann No doubt, many other missionaries have attempted to go to Spain but did not make it. However, like Jonah and Paul, we did make it part of the way. Does that count? You are wondering what happened and we offer the short version...

Surprise Tomorrow!

Rich and Jo Ann Davis on June 3, 2021

Our Plan It was mentioned in our last prayer release that we were planning to return to the states on May 31st to do routine medical check-ups. One of the reasons for setting that date was because the return leg of our round-trip ticket from the states was set last year for the end of May this year. Before mentioning the plan to spend a few weeks in the states this summer in our last letter, we also noted; “The trouble with tomorrow is that we don’t know about tomorrow!" If you have been praying that our trip back to the states...

The Trouble with Tomorrow

Rich and Jo Ann Davis on April 22, 2021

Yesterday “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) The Lord gave us two primary ministries in which to serve while in Moldova. For almost four years we have had the privilege of teaching in the Christian University (UDG) here in Chișinău. The current semester has been the most satisfying teaching experience to date.

It turns out that the university is blessed with many great teachers from other countries who come regularly to teach one- or two-week...

Apple Pie

Rich Davis on February 17, 2021

"Keep my commandments and live; keep my teaching as the apple of your eye" (Prov. 7:2).  Teaching the Word here in Moldova is what keeps us motivated and full of joy.  "And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also" (2 Timothy 2:2). One of the best ways to enjoy nice crisp apples is to make a delicious apple pie! Teaching here in the Christian University is like eating apple pie for us because we get the joy of teaching students who are serious about serving our...

Sustaining Grace

Rich Davis on December 22, 2020

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14). "Fear not!" said the missionaries. We are not going to give a treatise on grace or on the Incarnation. We simply desire to express our gratitude to the Lord for His sustaining grace and to many of you who make it possible for us serve the Lord via your prayers and financial support. Both Jo Ann and I experienced a wonderful semester teaching at the Christian University (UDG) during this...
