Up up and away we go to the great country of Moldova. All bags packed and packed some more with not only nessessities but esentials like beanie babies, fleese blanks made with love, and colored popsicle sticks for our sweet children of Dubasari. The sixteen fifty pound bags weighing in with the grand total of 800 pounds. Unfountunatly only 13 bags made it all the way to Chisinau but we have faith they will be with us tomorrow. Flights were all pretty smooth we enjoyed meals at all sort of weird hours, not sure how many we ate in a twenty four hour period. Sitting in the back of the plane provided less decision making on meal choice, chicken it is! After a small hitch in the efficiency of the Frankford airport, yes, Jen was able to join the rest of us on the highly delayed Moldovian Air flight. FYI Moldovia Air requires a 3 mile bus ride to the outskirts of the Frankford tarmac.
We recieved a warm welcome by Lucia and C.J. who were there at the airport to meet us and tour us through the city on our way to the mission house. Awaiting us was an amazing chicken ball and pasta dinner from our new best friend Lilia complete with no nut Chocolate brownie Sunday. So far we are not starving…these are important things. In Moldova we don’t have to make a decsion between chicken or pasta, we can have it all.
Tomorrow we are looking forward to the boarder crossing into Transnistria and meeting the children of the Dubasari Orphanage and Paster Sergey at The Word of Life Church to begin our mission of proving the beds for the children and spreading God’s great love.
