Taking a new path

Warm greetings from Ligia

When we are born, we come on this world naked and ready to assimilate life and knowlage as a dry spunge, the limits being the surface and the deapth of it.

We keep learning and asking ourselves….where?  what?  how?  how long…..?  When?  do I get there… I do that….I have that…..I will be…..? and so on…

Questions are part of our life and answers are also there some times ….

This past summer my life took a beautiful turn, as rivers turn sometime to continue their journey on.

After an unexpected eye and heart connection, back in 2010 in London, me and Janne fell in love and our friendship  after 2 and half years  lead us to marriage on the 4th of August 2012 in Sighisoara .

We are very happy to share life and love together.  Janne is the man of God I had waited and pray for years. He has the beautiful mixture of a gentle spirit with a strong and mature character.

This year we decided to have a lower key for our lives in order to be able to lay a strong foundation for our marriage.

After 20 years of intense life in mission and leadership in Romania, and after a dramatic turn for my family in which both of my parents in an unexpected way went to be with our heavenlly father, we started our life as a couple in Sweden, where Janne comes from.

Im still connected weeklly though with the mission field back in Sighisoara, by serving with translation of teaching material for children lessons, networking for projects and ministry, supporting the local team and doing administrativ work.

Around 20th of December we are going back to Romania for 2 weeks, to work with Warm feet project at Metro Ministries Romania,

This project serves the children in need with warm boots for winter, and also helps those who can’t, celebrate Christmas with a bit of joy and hope in the One who is The Life- Jesus.

We will keep you up dated on our life journey.

Enjoy some of our pictures from our beautiful wedding day!

How lovely to see more of your precious wedding photos Ligia 🙂 So glad to hear you have found it possible to have a slower pace of life for these first important months of the marriage adventure. I am SO thrilled to hear you say that Janne is the man you have been waiting for.. I know how wonderful that feels. Thought of you a lot this year with all you’ve been through- such an extreme of ups and downs – more than any of us were created to experience!
