Day 12

This morning before leaving Sally's, we took some photos next to the transitional homes. Cristi and another fellow were tearing down the roof of the shed. The work on these houses will continue to progress!

The guys who did the work! Tim and Lucci are such intelligent, hard workers, and kind hearts.

With Marius and Cristi, who put in a lot of effort this week! Sally mentioned that when she spoke to Cristi about this transitional home, he was so relieved and joyful; she didn't realize how stressed and uncertain he was about his future, so this newly purchased home is a huge blessing. You can tell he has such a pride in doing work on his future place. It's awesome to see! 

Inside the boys' transitional home. Much more work to be done, but it's coming right along! They are hoping to have it finished in September. 

Pastor Iovan expressed how thankful he was that we came to Talpos. He especially wanted us to convey to the whole church how much he appreciates our prayers and supporting the orphanage. One thing I will definitely walk away with is how much they all need our prayers. 

We said our good-byes to Sally, and prayed with her. Then we very appropriately sang, "I'm so Glad I'm a part of the Family of God". These words are so true! We're so grateful to have these friends we can call brothers and sisters.

We just love this special lady who selflessly impacts lives for Christ each day. She is an inspiration, and we have been so blessed by her hospitality and love this week. Thank you, Sally!

Dani drove us safely back to Budapest. We got to our hotel, then looked around at nearby St Matthias Church, and the Fisherman's Bastion. 

One of my favorite places in the world. 


We were able to meet up with Ed and Heather for supper tonight. They've been so gracious to show us around the city, and to direct us to the correct public transportation. 

A few interesting menu items we saw today... 🤔

Chicken paprikash!

Heading back to the hotel! We're staying on the Buda side the next few nights. (Buda is west of the Danube River, and Pest is on the east side.)

Thank you for your continued prayers. The next few days we'll be debriefing from our Romania experience, brainstorming ways we can help advocate for Sally and the kids, and taking in a few sights of this beautiful city.
