Meanwhile the girls did some cleaning; I made a carrot cake, and we hung out with the kids who had spent the night.
Playing is always on the list! (Neighbor girl Raluca)
Tialyr and Raluca. She was always outside when we were, and looking forward to some attention.
Our next project was to build a new ramp for the play set at the orphanage that was falling apart, and re-stain it.
The kids enjoyed hanging out with us all day.
Pastor Iovan stopped by to chat with us for awhile.
Stabilizing the swings.
We ran out of stain, so they'll probably finish this project next week. Sally also said that they'll be purchasing a new slide next week with some of our church's gift. The younger kids are so excited to have a slide again!
For the next few hours, we played with the kids... With the basketball we played Horse and Bump, and then got out the parachute for a bit. Maybe you saw us playing on the church's live video. The kids really caught on fast to the game, and had so much fun!
For dinner, Sally decided we should go into Salonta for dinner. We passed through at the time when the cows come home.
The team had a good time of debriefing a bit before bed tonight. We have all had a wonderful experience, and are each taking away different lessons and ways God is speaking to us here. It's so hard to understand all what Sally does and her many ministries here in the village without seeing them first hand. She's said to us many times this week how much she appreciates everyone back in the states who prays for them or gives to the ministry. I don't know how she is able to do what she does without many people praying.🙏🏻
Hotel Slavia... Delicious Transylvania food, and great conversations.
Our lemonades with honey came in small individual pitchers.
Chicken inside a hash brown.
Jeremy's Transylvania platter.
We are so very appreciative of Sally and Tim and everyone here who has welcomed us; they truly feel like family.
We arrived home to Sally's ferocious guard dog, Tyson who wanted belly rubs. 😉
It's hard to imagine that tomorrow is our last full day here! We're looking forward to attending church and worshipping tomorrow. Pastor Josh will be giving a short greeting/devotional in the morning service.
