Rob and Bek arrival in Romania

Two new teachers joined our team here in Târgu Mures, Romania. Rob and Bek came all the way from Tasmania, Australia! They had quite a journey to get here as their total travel time ended up being 48 hours. I really couldn’t image travelling that long. I am from Canada and it just takes me around 11 ½ hours to fly to Romania but for them it took like 30 more hours! They flew out of Tasmania on December 30th, flew to Sydney on December 31st, then to Bangkok, then to Vienna, then flew to Bucharest and finally took the train to Târgu Mures and arrived on Thursday January 1st, 2009. They left Australia last year and arrived in the New Year! Rob and Bek heard from their friend James who is also on our staff here at the school that we were looking for more teachers. After they prayed about it, they felt God lead them to come to Romania to teach English and reach out to the people here. We are so glad to have them here on our staff at the school and the team! Oh one more thing, our Australian population is growing! When Jon and Margot return we will have five Australians on our staff! Wow, they are going to be the majority but we do love having them on our team so welcome Rob and Bek to Romania!!
