I had such a great day today! I had another amazing day with the team doing street evangelism and loving on the gypsy kids at Sabolciu! I am so grateful that even though it has been cold this week God has been keeping us all warm when we are outside and it’s encouraging to see the positive attitudes of everyone on the team too.

This morning we went to the walking street to share the gospel with people. I think it’s just

The team doing worship on the walking street.

awesome how the team worships God wherever we are doing street evangelism and the skits too are just powerful ways of witnessing to people. We even had a young boy join us as we worshipped God! For me personally I cannot translate during these times because my Romanian level is not that fluent but it is a blessing to be part of it and watch God work.

When we were at Sabolciu this afternoon we had another amazing time with all of the children. The kids were happy to see us again as we walked into the village but I have to admit I felt so bad for Dana when I saw the look on her face. Dana really grew attached to Caleh (she is one of the girls on the team) but when Dana noticed that she didn’t go today she look so disappointed. Caleh didn’t feel so well so she stayed at the hostel today. I told Dana that Caleh is sick and she will go tomorrow. I guess I never realized how attached some of the kids get to people on the team. Dana still had fun today!

The team did another great program for the kids. It was so great to see the smiles on the

kid’s faces and hear the laughter from them as they enjoyed being with the team. I could the kids loved every moment as we sang, they listened and watched attentively to the Bible story and they enjoyed doing the craft. I was really touched when I saw the picture that one of the boys drew. Daniel drew a picture of God and us in a heart. I didn’t know who the people represented until I asked him about the picture and when I found out I was just speechless. Wow, Lord God it is my prayer that you would teach me to go to you with that kind of child like faith like Daniel has!

It was either this evening or yesterday evening that I finished the book that I started reading a couple of days ago. I forget when I finished it however I wanted to encourage you to read it too. The book that I just finished reading is called “Angel in the Rubble” which is about the miraculous rescue of 9/11 last survivor. The book is written by Genelle Guzman-McMillan and was recently published this year.

I literally read it from cover to cover and found it was just impossible to put down! It is not very often that I read a book that fast so I highly recommend for you to read it because it is so inspiring to read. It is a story of strength, hope and miracles. It is a testimony of one woman who had a miraculous survival but also how she got right with God and others. It is a story of God’s mercy and hope that He gives to all of us.
