New life update

Our life has been CRAZY!! Since my last post we’ve taken some major decisions, made huge leaps and put into action our faith like never before. I’m gonna number them so that I don’t loose you (or myself) along the way:

1. This year in spring we’ve decided to go back to the UK as the opportunity to plant a church arose;

2. Left for  Birmingham in the summer to plant Emmaus Church and seek God’s plan for us there (see below a picture of our first ‘formal’ service meeting);

3. Moved in a house with 2 other big families (3 babies and 2 toddlers) and started to make things happen;

4. Chris and I were on our own for the first time thanks to God’s grace of providing us with a hoist;

5. Launched our business, Mezei Design in August (launch of our website in the pic below);

6. Decided to go ecological all of a sudden and changed our entire way we did life in about a week;

7. I (Nicoleta) got a job in the Marketing area ;

8. Celebrated our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (see photos), crazy!!! Life with Chris is sooooo good, like I never imagined. He is an amazing man and husband, each day is a gift for us when we are together.

Now, 4 months have passed since we settled in Birmingham, amazing how blessed we’ve been in all areas! And it’s awesome to be part of a church plant (in our living room!) and to see first hand how Jesus is alive and how he changes lives!

And something we’ve been meaning to do since our wedding, a video summary of the wedding day.

Today we celebrate 6 years of being together!!! Another Skype picture though…But the distance talk and being apart will all end in 2 months when I will graduate and go home to be together with Chris and prepare for the wedding in September.

Half a decade

5 down, an entire life to go. The 26th of April marked our 5th anniversary together. This one is more special than the rest, we have so many plans ahead of us and so many things to do as a newly engaged couple. We are both grateful that God created us to fit together and to support and love each other. It is really hard to express what we feel and the power of it. We are just amazed at God’s grace for us!

We thought that maybe we should continue last year’s tradition http://straight2heaven.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/happy-anniversary-to-us/ , but of course, since we’ve grown one year we became more sophisticated 😛 and we moved on from muffin to fruit tart 😀 ( I baked neither of them). Maybe next year we’ll have a real cake!
