A year ago, Carol and I had the pleasure of going to Moldova with a Missions Trip from Neighborhood Assembly of God, in Helena, MT. While in Moldova, we worked on the foundation of a church in a town called Bubuieci. This church has been meeting in a house because they had no building of their own. While we were there, with us, there was no room in the church, so they brought all of the pews outside onto the driveway where we had a great service. You can see more about that HERE, HERE, and HERE. I chronicled our trip to Moldova, and it can be seen HERE.
We received the following update on the Bubuieci church and wanted to share it with you. It is so good to see the church building coming along. God is so good!

|Building The Church in Bubuieci
The church in Bubuieci, Moldova is over 10 years old but has never had their own building to meet in. At the present time they meet in an overcrowded house. This past year a $40,000 piece of property was miraculously donated by a lady in the village. We are now working hard to build the church for this growing congregation.
In September, New Life Church from Princeton, Minnesota sent a team of 11 to help with the work in Bubuieci. In one week the team made a huge impact as the floor and the walls are being completed.

|In October we have another team coming from Montana to continue work on the Bubuieci church. We are hoping to get the church far enough along so that they can begin meeting in their new facility before winter. As well, will be organizing a Convoy of Hope outreach during this time. Any gifts toward the work in Bubuieci will go a long way and be greatly appreciated.
We feel privileged to be partnering together with you as we build the church in Moldova. Your faithful prayers and support keep us going. God bless you!

The countdown has started… We are packing up the final little items, looking over lists, saying our good byes. Early tomorrow morning, we will be boarding the space shuttle, er, uh, I mean an airplane, heading to Moldova. Most people I talk to don’t even know where Moldova is located. I will admit, that about a year ago, I didn’t either. Now, my lovely wife and I, along with a great team from our church, will be heading there to do what ever God wants us to do, make relationships, get dirty, eat a lot (from what we hear), and have fun. All in the name of the Lord. I plan on “TRYING” to update our website daily as the adventure goes on. Check it out at http://McDougallsHome.net/moldova . I have no idea what we are in store for; so, if we are dead dog tired every night, things might not happen here as rapidly as I have planned. My ole’ laptop computer could die. A thousand other things not thought of might happen. But, I will TRY! Until then, Bon Voyage!
