Today I spent most of the day with our summer interns. I am so grateful for God bringing all of them to Romania because they have been an encouragement to me and their servant hearts inspire me too. In the morning I went to Sabolciu with them. This week the interns have games week at Sabolciu.
Today the weather wasn’t the greatest so we played indoor games inside of the church. We sang some songs first. I love singing songs with the children at Sabolciu because they enjoy it so much. Today we taught them a new song and they learned it really fast. Unfortunately when we played the games the kids did not listen very well but we did have a lot of fun with them in the end.
After our time in Sabolciu I went to the House of Joy with the interns for lunch and then I went to Sue’s apartment with some of the older orphan girls for craft day. Before we did the craft we did a short Bible study. Chelsea led the Bible study. She did a great job with leading the Bible study and she also shared a bit of her testimony too. We had a time of prayer. I thought it was neat how all of us prayed individually and thanked God for who He is in our lives. For the craft all the girls did different things.
This evening it was suppose to be my women’s small group at Karen’s house so I couldn’t stay long at Sue’s place because the small group started at 6:00pm. I was able to get a ride to Karen’s house with Kinga and another lady. On the way to Karen’s house we found out the small group had been cancelled today because Karen had problems with her health and she had to go to the hospital. We decided to pray for Karen and then go on our separate ways.
I ended up spending the evening at home. I watched a movie called “Water for the Elephants”. It was a good movie and it had a good story line to it. Around 11:00pm I had quite a phone call with one of the orphan girls about something that quite emotionally. I am sorry that I cannot share any details on my blog but I do appreciate your prayers because I’m going through a real struggle right now. I ended up crying a lot and I spent time in prayer after that phone conversation. I really need to bring things that are heavy on my heart more to God and not let it bottle up inside of me.
