Serving in Kiskunmajsa

This past Friday and Saturday I had a wonderful time serving with our school's grade 8 students at a home for displaced families in Kiskunmajsa Hungary.  Some of highlights for our students were tearing down some old playground equipment, petting the horses, and helping the children paint picture frames.    During our debriefing many of our students talked about how they saw many of their fellow classmates step up and work hard without complaining.  I too am very proud of how all of them worked.

 For myself it was a time of learning that the Lord can use my abilities of planning and organizing.  I was in charge of organizing the picture frame craft.  It was great to see the children paint and glue different things to them amidst the ciaos having babies and children everywhere.  Some of the pompoms for the craft became make sift soccer balls for a few little boys.  My favorite thing of the whole weekend was a cute one year old who nodded her head yes to her name even though our pronunciation was wrong.  She sat colouring for in a high chair never complaining.  She was happy that she could share her crayons and I was able to practice my colours.

I would like to thank the Lord for giving all of us such a wonderful time serving the families in Kiskunmajsa.

Picture Saturday: Welcome to my new flat!

This is the third place I have lived since I moved to Hungary. So far I would have to say it is my favorite as well.  Good location - close to work, shopping and transportation.  Since these pictures were taken I have had a few more things moved in, but pictures of how it looks with furniture will have to wait.

I finally have the purple room I always wanted! I just didn`t know would be my living room
