Our First Morning

After a long sleep-in to catch up on our rest, the team has arisen and is getting our day started. Pastor Ludmil has been in to see us and plan out the day. Coffee and food have been consumed, morning devo's done, and in an hour or so we are going to be painting in the new Blagavest church.

Tonight, we are expecting to go visit the gypsy church in Stolnik with Pastor Niki. We're a little worried about transportation since we're about two seats short with the vehicles we've got. We'll figure it out and make it work though. Somebody may end up on somebody's lap!Everybody is in great spirits and we're all just glad to be here... finally! We're ready to hit the ground running and eagerly looking forward to reuniting with the friends we haven't seen yet as well as all the new relationships we'll be building here.

Marinna was asked about her first impressions of Bulgaria and noted that everything is beautiful, "even the dirt." She enjoyed hearing her first Bulgarian speakers as well.

Megan related that our Bulgarian brothers and sisters are very warm. They make you feel very comfortable and "... are your friends as soon as you meet them!"

Richard was struck by the driving here. "California-ish... but worse," is how he described it. He loves the architecture that he observed driving through downtown Sofia.
