Day 1 in the books.

It is 11:15 P.M. in Romania. Our team had a wonderful day. Our 45 member team split into our three groups and dispersed to begin our work. Group 1 headed to the orphanage in Gavojdia. Group 2 headed to Susani to do VBS with the local kids and Group 3 began construction of the House of Joy in Susani.

The orphanage team had a great day that primarily focused on building relationships with the children and planting seeds for the remainder of the week. The Susani VBS team had close to 60 kids. We’ve been told to expect even more tomorrow. The construction team made huge strides to the foundation for the House of Joy community center. Only a few hours of work are required tomorrow before the cement trucks arrive to pour the foundation. Our hope is that we will be able to begin working on the exterior walls on Wednesday.

God has been so good to our team. We finished the night with over an hour of sharing time. It was great to hear why God moved so many to join this trip to Romania and to hear how he has already begun doing great things with the kids! I cannot wait to see how tomorrow will go.

Thanks for your prayers and support. Aspire to new heights.
