God did it

It was a privilege to join this farewell party for students of the ministry in Brasov. A few months before a pastor had told his students to choose either his church or the CCC group. The CCC leaders graciously encouraged the students to stay connected with their church and asked God what to do next. As they began to pray and share Christ in the dorms, God brought an entirely new crew of students, many of them in their first year. We can not out give God. I was impressed at how well they had bonded and gotten to know each other after only a few months.

Exploring the Train

Yeah cars are fun, but cars have to stop for trains. Plus you can run around and jump on trains. They have toilets and I even conquered my fear of using it even though I could see and hear the tracks roaring by below, but that sure wasn't the highlight.

Train Trip with Thomas

Today we left home at 6:30am to take the train to Brasov, Romania. The night before Ryan prepared his little Thomas train and snacks by the door. Ryan is really into trains, so it was great that the conductor took an interest in him. We arrived at 8pm. It was a long trip, but fortunately we had the 8 seat compartment to ourselves for half the trip and could lie down and even sleep a bit. Thank you God.

Take a tour

Ryan is offering tours of the house and his car collection. Watch out for spiders. Isn't that grass green? That is because it is growing like a tropical rainforest! If we don't mow weekly we will need to get a machete. You can click on the title to see photos of the house.
