WOW...WE MADE IT!!!

Hi from Moldova (8:20 pm)! We finally made it after a gazillion years of traveling. I think it took us 20 hours to get here total, but we all made it saftely. A wise person told me (BB) to make sure you drink LOTS of water on the plane. I had to learn the hard way. I think the most difficult thing so far is rest. We are all a little sleepy and worn out. It was hard to sleep on the plane, but I managed to catch some rest on the hard, cold floor in the Frankfurt airport. I think the traveling is a story in itself. Today, we visited the orphanage for the first time. I was in charge of girls 5th-8th grade. They are very knowledgeable about the bible and the meaning of Christmas. We played games and had a lot of fun! After we got back from lunch, we all got together (1st-9th grades) and sang songs. I had so many cute little girls just clinging to me. They held my hands, waist, played with my hair, and talked to me. I can't wait to see them tomorrow. Don't worry! I got lots of pictures. All these little kids are so cute; I want to pack them all up and take them home with me. Do you think I can get past customs with them? :) I just want to say hello to everyone. Talk to you soon!

  3. America has changed a lot since you have been here. I hope you all recognize this place when you return. But seriously, have a wonderful Christmas with those kids. Keep strong in your faith and remember the true meaning of Christmas, JESUS. Spreading the gospel in a foreign land is an amazing thing and each of you are in our prayers. There is absolutely nothing in this world that is more important than having a personal relationship with JESUS and I wish you the best in helping to spread this message. Take care!
