This afternoon I went to Săbolciu with Mircea and Norbi. We had another really great time with the children. Today we taught them the second commandment from the Ten Commandments which is “you will not make for yourself an idol in any form…” Norbi did a

great job in explaining to the children what it means to not worship an idol. He brought angel made out of hard clay (I’m not sure what the material it was made from). He explained to the kids that it is not alive but only God is the one true living God who can hear our prayers and He cares for us.

After we did the Bible lesson we sang and did the memory verse. I’m so proud that so many of the children have now memorized Philippians 4:13 in English! We ended our time together in the village giving the kids snack food that I had bought for them to enjoy. The kids don’t get snacks very often so it was a nice treat for them.

In the evening I went to my girls Bible study from the Viată Nouă (New Life) church. Today we did our second last session on our Esther study. The teaching that Beth Moore did today was just what I needed to hear. She spoke a lot about spiritual warfare. It reminded me that the situation that I’m going through right now is not a battle against flesh and blood but it is a battle against the spiritual darkness. God reminded me that I am his warrior and I need to fight.
