So I back from our little trip into the wilds of Eastern Europe LOL hope I don't lose points for going awol.
This tiny church of approx. 20 people is less than 4 years old and although they are laboring away in a land with the communist legacy, starvation level wages, massive alcohol abuse and occult practices they are already mission orientated. Being a mission plant they took the step of faith last year to support other missionaries. How fabulous it that!
Even though it was March, winter still has a firm grip. We were bundled up under layers of clothes to cope with the temperatures of -7°C to -2°C God was really looking after me because, as you know I don’t cope with the cold, and only 2 days before our arrival it was -21°C . Honestly, I have no idea how Tami copes.
I hadn’t been able to do much exercise in the week running up to our trip as I fell and also came down with a cold, thankfully that cleared up but of course when you’re in someone else’s house food choices and exercise opportunities are limited. With food prices only 20% lower than Germany yet the average wage is less than 1/5 carbohydrates are the big plate filler. And of course nothing is wasted, day old bread is deep fried and sprinkled with cheese and garlic as a snack. It tastes great but the calories, oy oy oy!
We did manage an hour walk on Saturday plus about 2 hours bowling on Sunday and I can’t forget playing with the kiddies, that’s really tiring – phew!
But now I need to knuckle down and get back into my routine, Looking a the pointers I’ve got some catching up to do hee hee.
