Hello from Romania

Well this is my first blog in a very long time and I just happen to be in Romania right now with a team from the Edge. We have been here for 2 days and have mostly been tourists so far. We did visit an Orphanage for a couple of hours today though. It is amazing, even after being here before you forget the amazing welcome you get when you go to an Orphanage. YOu really do feel like a rock star. You are loved, and hopefully you can show the same love back.
It is also very hard to leave. After only a couple of hours you are saying good bye as if you have known the kids for years. It is an unbelievable experience that everyone should experience at some time in their life. It is so foriegn to the way we treat each other in the "western world."
We are going to Camp Sadu tomorrow to get ready for the kids coming on Monday. I can not wait. 24 hours a day chillin with the little kids, playing games, doing bible stories, eating sweets, having camp fires...all good.

I will maybe report more later in the week, or after the camp. But for now I must bid al of you in blog land farewell.
