This photo was taken at our banquet on the last night of our Leadership course. The girl receiving her certificate is from Uganda and works there with Wycliffe Bible Translators. I hope to go to Africa someday...

So a few days after I arrived back from Hungary it was my friend Corina's birthday. I and some others went out to her house and I brought a cake I had made for her. It was a great meal and a fun time.

You may remember that my friend Kathy came to visit in August (that was awesome!) and we had a good time together.
During her time here one of the places she saw was the 'pitichka' which is like a Moldovan version of the Canadian Tire store. She wanted me to take some pictures of it as she was not able to. Here's me buying an extension cord and power bar.

It's been a busy time since I arrived back from Hungary. I've had a Bible study to lead for one of our courses and for the next few days I will be leading the Bible study at a conference we are hosting for the people who work in our day centres. All day today we had our leadership team meeting and tomorrow I will be doing my annual evaluation with my field leader. On Monday my roommate moved out and I am alone in my apartment again, which is fine. But not here for long as my landlady has decided to sell the apartment. Hopefully I can stay here until I leave for Canada in December, then save 3 months rent. On my return from Canada in March, I will have the joy of looking for another apartment! Well, at least it helps to keep me from accumulating too much 'stuff' ! Like Abraham, you know, wandering and not knowing where I am going..

What else did I do this last busy week? Oh yeah, on Thursday, I had all the new foreigners over for supper. This group of young people have come - all except one - soleley for our Challenge into Missions 10-week training program. Two from the US, one from Australia, one from Canada and one from Switzerland have come to be part of our team for this time. It was fun getting to know these enthusiastic young men and women. I fed them dinner and then invited them to make their own dessert as one had indicated that he liked to make food. So Nate and Bethany went to work in the kitchen and whipped up some delicious apple crisp, while the others took turns checking e-mail on my high-speed internet. This week and next they are with outreach teams staying in the villages - not likely to be internet there!
So, that's what's happening with me, just in case you are wondering. Thanks to all my loyal readers for your faithfulness. And praise to God for His great faithfulness!!
