Bucharest + June = Water Fight!

Today we had the kiddos from #7 with us at the office all day today. It was great to be able to spend a good amount of time just hanging out with them and relaxing with them without having a strict schedule. It was also great to be able to spend time with kids we really know at this point. I'm certainly going to miss them...

The morning consisted of a lot of Dutch Blitz, Tenzi, and other games while in the afternoon we sang, learned about Jonah (from a pretty entertaining team skit), and painted nails (while the boys played outside).

Shortly thereafter, Nelu beckoned us all outside for a few games. Outside + Bucharest + June = WATER. We most certainly spent the afternoon playing a series of water games before erupting into a water fight of epic proportions. It. Was. A. Blast. We laughed and ran around and threw water at each other and laughed some more. I loved it--not to mention that it felt GREAT on a hot afternoon. Riding home on the metro and going to the store afterward wasn't the most fun in wet-ish clothing, but sometimes it's all about sacrifices, right? :)

The roomies and I actually spent a good amount of the evening writing out our testimonies because we are going to have the opportunity to share our stories with the girls at Chitila on Wednesday. There has been a lot of upheaval there in the past week, so PLEASE continue to pray for the girls there and for us as we share our hearts. May God use us however He plans to reach out and touch His children.

Tomorrow we'll head back to Tei in the morning. In the afternoon, we'll have the kiddos from Pinocchio and some of the families at the office for the usual program and they'll stay into the evening for a BBQ and worship night. Please also be praying for our time together tomorrow.

Sorry for the short update, but that's all for now! Thanks for all your prayers. Te iubesc!
