This morning I went to Sabolciu gypsy village with Norbi and our summer interns. We
went to the field again to play games with the kids there. The guys played soccer with the boys and the gals painted the girls finger and toe nails with nail polish. Bringing nail polish for the girls definitely was a big hit for the kids! It was so cute how they got right into it and some of them even wanted different colours on each finger nail or polka dots.
After our time at the field with the kids we went to the church for a time of singing and then we gave them a snack before we left. It was a great week with the kids in Sabolciu! Daniel who is one of our summer interns decided to take Razvan (he is one of the boys from Sabolciu) back to Oradea with us to spend more time with him. Razvan is 14 years old and he really needs someone to mentor him who will be a positive role model for him. I also believe that so many of these precious kids need mentoring but there are so few staff/ volunteers who go to Sabolciu. Please pray that God will raise up more godly passionate people for the ministry at Sabolciu to reach out to these amazing kids!
After our time in Sabolciu I went to the House of Joy for a quick bit to eat with the interns
and then I went to the orphanage for the chapel. I was not able to stay long for the orphan chapel because I had to be at my friend Lori’s house by 4:00pm. It was nice to see the kids even though it was a quick visit. I have been thinking for what I’ll do in the fall for my ministry time that I’d really like to spend more time with the orphan kids. I need to pray about this more and also speak to Dan and Tabita (they are the project coordinators) about this desire of my heart.
I arrived at my friend Lori’s house just after 4:00pm. I spent the majority of my evening at her house looking after her boys while she tried to get some things done and when she went to her doctor’s appointment. It was fun babysitting but a bit hard at times to manage two excited little two year old boys! We watched a Veggie Tale movie (Josh and the Big Wall), played with toys and I fed them dinner. When Lori was at her doctor’s appointment her husband Stephen and her daughter came home from camp.
