Returned from a visa-run to Moldova yesterday and it was a really great weekend. The city is beautiful right now and we also hung out with some beautiful people. Still praying about how we can join God in what He is doing in this country. It is an amazingly gorgeous place, and so so poor.
Here are some pictures. The one of me and John just makes me laugh. This kid was just snapping pictures and we look like we are sharing some little side joke. No jokes being shared, just funny expressions. Adriana and her son Andrei were with us for the day. Adriana was John's language teacher while he was in Moldova for a year and is really interested in partnering with Word Made Flesh. She is a great, kind woman. The picture of the statue is George Cosbuc. I happen to live on Cosbuc in Galati, but the picture was taken in this memorial park in Chisinau that is lined with the busts of famous literary and musical men. Also, imagine my surprise when I found a California cedar in Chisinau. I had to take a picture. While we were visiting I only took pictures in the park.
The highlight of the trip (not really, just saying that, although this comment did make me feel good) was when a friend of John's we met thought I was Romanian and then, after spending several hours with her and upon trying to guess my age thought I was 23, well, I was feelin' good in Moldova.
