This morning Kathy called me to see if I would like to get together today with her and her girls. Kathy is a good friend of mine. She is a missionary from Canada and has been living in Oradea, Romania for 10 years now. She has her own foundation here with ministering to babies at the hospital and she has also adopted two beautiful Romanian girls (their names are Andreea and Codi).

Kathy called me today because she read the prayer request e-mail that I sent out on Wednesday and wanted to know how I’m doing. She told me that she would like to go out this afternoon with her two girls and asked me if I’d like to join them. I thought that was really nice of Kathy to call me to see how I’m doing and to invite me to join them.

I haven’t seen them in a while so I took Kathy up on her offer. I didn’t have to go far to meet them because we met at the children’s indoor playground which is just 5 minutes from where I live and it was free too. It was so nice to spend time with them for a couple of hours this afternoon. Kathy and I talked while the girls played. It was great just to talk and let some things out that I needed to share with someone. Kathy is very encouraging and she also has such an understanding heart because we can relate to each other since we are both missionaries. She even invited me to join them for Christmas so now I need to pray and ask God how He wants me to spend my holidays here.

The rest of the day I stayed at home with my cat Minnie. I had plans to make follow up phone calls to the sponsors that I had sent e-mails to last week but for some reason the phone that my directors lent me to use is not working and I don’t know why (maybe it is not plugged in right or something). I felt pretty annoyed that I couldn’t make those phone calls because today would have been the perfect day to do that since its Saturday and there is a 7 hour time difference. I think I’ll ask someone to look at the phone for me.

Unfortunately I couldn’t do those phone calls so I worked on my blog instead which was also something that needed to be done because it helps when I write my newsletters. Today I posted 5 entries for my blog. In the evening I watched the movie called “Unstoppable”. It was a good movie but the quality of the download version I got was terrible. Denzel Washington was one of the main actors in the film. After I finished watching the movie I headed to bed. I always like to go to bed when I have things accomplished so I’m glad that I was able to work on my blog today but yet I feel bad that I didn’t make those phone calls. Tomorrow is another day! Noapte bună! (good night)!

About Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
