Today was our last day of the conference. In the morning, Brothers Mike and David finished their sessions with the pastors, while the wives finished with Jackie and Rhonda.
Brad and Amy were able to go into the Bod village school and go to 3 Kindergarden and pre-K classes as well as 2 of the older classes. We again delivered school supplies and love from the United States. The teachers have been amazing to talk to and work with and this will hopefully open doors that Sorin, Dana, Ciprian, and Alina can work to keep open.
In the afternoon, we again had the teachers and had 7 AND the director of the Bod schools! We talked about parent involvement and ways we each work to keep parents involved and build relationships. At the conclusion of the meeting, we gave gifts again to all who came along with a special bag to the director. We allowed all the teachers in attendance to get any supplies we had left to take to their classrooms as well. We also received an invitation to see them next year! That is a large blessing and more than we ever imagined.
In the afternoon, we visited some families again. One lady, Eva, prayed for salvation! What a blessing. Her son Andre comes to the church to the after-school program. Pray for him as he is very behind on his skills and may have some learning disabilities.
The evening found Brad again working with the Bod church leaders to learn to record their services as well as to look at some worship software that may help them to expand their media in the future. He also got a chance to recommend some computers and hardware for them based on their requests. During this time, the ladies visted Tatiana in Brașov and when we all returned, there were gifts to be given! We gave and received gifts and shared a last evening together laughing and talking.
Tomorrow, we will head back towards Bucharest and visit Peleș Palace on the way. Tomorrow evening, we will go to sleep the last time in Romania as we fly home Saturday morning! It has seemed quick but extremely good and we have seen God moving in this village. Pray for our travels and we will see you all again Sunday morning!
