This Is BRAD(Not Mark)

Well after five minutes of being unsuccessfully logging in under my own password my lovely friend Mark let me use his password. I don't really know if I'm supposed to talk about my whole trip thus far or just today. So I'm just going to talk about today. It all started with me hearing the wondeful voice of Jen Gash and I noticed many more right after that. I immeditaly looked at the clock and noticed it was 7:30 and we were leaving a 8:00. I woke up Roger and we went and ate breakfeast. We headed out to the orphange. We started out laying the rest of the uncut laminent and pasting it to the floor. Tim, Boris, and I headed to the store to buy more screws for the beds. Hardware stores aren't like the Home Depot's and Lowe's of the world. The prices are set per screw and not per box. Most people just come in and buy a few screws here and there. Most things here are built out of concrete and not trees so that may explain why. We went back and did a couple of things around the orphange before lunch. Tim, Joe, Roma, Boris, and I went to see if we could find some trim but to no avail at the two stores that were closest to the orphange. We headed back across town to a store that was the closet to Home Depot that I have seen and we decided after all that just to use the trim we already had. I don't know what that's supposed to mean but things work differently here in Moldova. People aren't in a rush to do anything. I really think we are getting through to the boys what it means to work. Some of the guys work hard and other do not. Some of them want to develop a relationship and others do not. They took a lot less breaks today and worked really hard. The interpreters are awesome, really amazing guys. It's really good to see what God is doing in their lives. Just pray for us and our relationships. I got to clown around with a couple of boys and Mark got to have a good talk with one of the boys. I miss you all and see you soon.

  1. Glad to see you all are able to blog there- I have been praying for you guys (and gals) so it's great to read all the updates.

    Kairos was amazing last night- even the music wasn't too bad! ha! but seriously- there must have been over 900 people there, and Mike's sermon on James was inspiring. If you don't live it, you don't believe it, he said. Well you guys are out there serving and "living it." Love you all and praying for your time there and safe arrival back home in the Brent Hood.
