The welcoming of our first daughter has kept me from updating in awhile, although we have been continuing with the activities. (less me:)) Our little girl was born on Friday, June 3 and we have been having a ball getting to know her !!
Lucian has been continuing with the outreach for youth in the orphanages and in church that we started a month ago of weekly sessions of futbol/ Volleyball. The sessions have been going well, with the highest attendance this Monday of 50. There was a holiday & off school, so more were able to come. He also always puts the word out about the youth meetings, Saturday nights at our church. Continue to pray that these times would be good times of socialization & encouragement and Lucian is able to show the youth the love of Jesus.
The Saturday before Children’s Day (June 1) we had an outing with kids from Elena Doamna & Ion Creanga Orphanages, and villages of Garcina & Negresti to celebrate! Mainly with kids ages 7-15. We had a barbeque in the forest all day, with two meals, volleyball, soccer, frisbee, bubbles, and time for socialization. We also encouraged the kids with a story about Jesus and the storm, and that he can calm the storms in your life, which we did with a skit.
