I made it!!!

I made it to Romania yesterday afternoon, around 2:30 I arrived in Medias. All my travel was very smooth and all of my luggage made it! (That's a big deal as I have had trouble the last 2 trips) I rested yesterday afternoon and then I slept good at night too. I only got maybe 30 minutes of sleep on the plane! Today, I went to church in the morning, and in the afternoon, I went to meet the group from CERT. We unpacked their boxes and organized all the snacks, games, crafts and medicine items. I helped make some of the supplies for the craft. When that was done, I helped sort the medicine and put it into packages for in the villages tomorrow. Then we took a taxi to church. Tonight, the choir from Sibiu was here and it was wonderful! After church I talked with many many of my friends. It was good to see them all again. There was a reception in the downstairs of the church so we went down there for a while. Then I took the bus home and had dinner.
Tomorrow will be the first day in the villages. We will go to two villages I have been to before, Axente Sever, and Tarniaviora. I am excited to see the kids again. I am not sure what I am doing, but I will find out tomorrow.
I found out some things about the camp also. We will leave next Monday and return Saturday. 20 children are going, plus 9 adults, I think. We will have a generator so we can plug a fridge in. Also, the river is not used as a toilet, there is an I will not have to go a week with out bathing! *huge sigh of relief*!!! Nothing like miscommunication! There is an outhouse behind the cabin we will stay in. Other than that, I do not know much more.


  1. I'm glad you and your luggage arrived together. Also for the great news about the outhouse!

  2. luggage... outhouse... GOOD NEWS!

    I was wondering what the weather was like there and what are your conditions for sleeping? Just curious.

  3. Have a wonderful time Melissa! We've been gone so I forgot you were going! Glad your luggage arrived with you!

  4. Yea!! So glad you made it safe and sound and with your luggage, too! I'll bet you never thought you would be so happy to have an outhouse!! I can relate, believe me!!(pre-cabin days at our property)lol!!!

  5. Yeah!! You made it safe and sound with luggage in tact!! Awesome!!! I have been thinking about you tons!!! Cannot wait to hear more!!!

  6. I am so bummed we didn't get to "see you off" since we were gone but I am glad to hear all went well. I am delighted to see that you are able to update us form Romania! I will try to keep you updated on Zack this weekend also. Little FYI for you. Zack got a Facebook message in his inbox from the U of M coach inviting him and his parents to ALL of the home home Michigan games as his guest. Zack was geeked about that. We will have to check the calender and see what ones we can make.
    Take care!
    I will be praying for you!

  7. Tell everyone I said I and that I will see them in Sept. I'm glad the travel part went well. Post some pics if you can. I know Betel has changed and I'm looking forward to seeing it. Give Lavi and Gigi and big hug from me. Love, Gerri

  8. I am getting caught up on your blog tonight. I hadn't realized that it was time for you to go to Romania. I am glad you made it there safely and that the accommodations are working out.

  9. I'm so glad you're having a great time. I look forward to hearing your stories and seeing your pics. Please tell Claudia I'm waiting to hear from her. You're in my prayers every night. Cu Mult Dragoste, Gerri
