I am thrilled to announce that the Princess Within Program has officially made its way to Romania as of this past November through the mission team from Rose Hill Baptist Church in Ashland, Kentucky.
Pastor Teofil Mihoc of Jibou Baptist Church in Jibou, Romania had the opportunity to review the curriculum, The Princess Within: Living Like a Princess from the Inside Out , while on a trip to the United States last summer. He decided that it was a program that he wanted for the young ladies in his congregation.
So, these beautiful missionaries from Ashland, Kentucky did just that. They taught, using an interpreter, the first session of The Princess Within in the week that they were there eventually handing over the reins to Bianca Roberta, the youth Pastor’s wife. Mrs. Bianca taught the remaining sessions with the young ladies in her home as they sat around her kitchen table.
Cindy Estes from Rose Hill Baptist Church, who spearheaded the effort, had this to say about her experience with The Princess Within in Romania:
The class was well received and surprisingly, in no time, the young women began to open up. The one thing I found interesting is that no matter where women reside, all are faced with the same challenges and decisions. As Christian women they find they are torn between what God expects and what the world throws at them and a lot of young women are found lacking in skills and knowledge for handling pressures placed upon them by young men who want more out of a relationship.
We are all praying with God’s help, the series of Princess Within classes will equip these young women with the tools needed for making them strong and more solid Christians and that they would be the type of women who know what they believe and why they believe it.
As of January 18, 2012, the women in Romania were still teaching The Princess Within to their young ladies. Mrs. Bianca of Romania sent word on their progress saying:
It’s going very good our classes, and we are very happy to have this books, I send you some pictures, I have told you that we will meet, and we had a blessed time together. In the pictures you can see that we are very serious and we study with joy and love this book.
Be blessed! Pray for me and for the girls! – With love in Jesus, Bianca
As I write this blog I am in awe of what the Lord has done and is doing in Jibou, Romania, I feel such a sense of gratefulness to the Lord for allowing us all to work together to bring about a Sacred Revolution of holiness and purpose fulfilled in the lives of these daughters of the Great King!
To God be every ounce of the Glory!
