Well today I got good news and bad news. The good news is I finally have the internet again at my apartment!! A guy I know who helped me with my internet when I moved here last year came and helped me with that today and I’m so grateful he was able to come and help me today. I just praise God to have access to the internet again because I really depend on it to have communication with my family and many other people that I just love to keep in touch with!

The bad news is Norbi told me that we cannot go to the Sabolciu gypsy village this

week which was a huge disappointment for me because I have really missed the kids when I was in Canada. Norbi told me the reason we couldn’t go is because there was a situation that happened last week when the interns were there that ended up to be kind of like a heated argument along the gypsies so Cornel told Norbi that he doesn’t want any Americans to go this week because it isn’t safe. Even though I am not an American (well I am half American) Norbi still told me that I couldn’t go. We would appreciate your prayers for this ministry with these precious gypsy children and families.

I am so thankful that Norbi was able to help me with a few errands that I needed to do today. This morning I was able to get a new tram/bus pass for the year and also pick up the six boxes that have been waiting for me at the post office for a week now. Three of those boxes are the ones my parents and I sent from Florida with the children’s flip flops for Sabolciu and some of my personal stuff. The other three boxes are from a woman named Brenda who is one of the boy’s sponsors from Sabolciu and she headed up a swimsuit project for the kids in Sabolciu.

The rest of the day I did a few more errands that I needed to do and I cleaned my

apartment a bit. In the evening I opened up the boxes that Brenda sent because I was curious what she had sent. I think she definitely got the reward for the most compacted boxes because two of them were in vacuum bags with the individual zip lock kid’s bags inside of them. When I took out those two vacuum bags out of the boxes they looked like cubes! It was such a funny sight that I ended up taking a picture.

I ended up spending an hour looking at all of the swim suits and my heart was filed with joy when I pictured each child wearing them during the summer months! I am so grateful for Brenda heading up this project, I’m sure this will be the children’s very first swimsuit! I hope they will like them and enjoy wearing them this summer when they go swimming in the river near their village.

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!
