Our team arrived safely in Budapest today! Our flights, today seemed so much shorter than flying to Africa – it was great! What a wonderful group of people. We are blessed for another wonderful team! We have 19 team members traveling with us including some that traveled with us to Romania in 2008 – DJ, Mani and Sharon. It is so great to see Mani’s smiling face again and this time he brought his whole entire family – Danielle, Kelly, Jasmine and Danielle Jr. DJ brought his wife Kathy and Sharon brought two girls from her community in Windom, MN – Hannah and Claire. So, this trip will be a bit of a reunion for some – but, we are excited to get to know the new team members traveling with us!
We relaxed at the hotel this afternoon and headed for Fatale this evening for dinner to meet old dear Hope 4 Kids friends/missionaries, David and Susan Ballantyne. Old friends and beef gulash- doesn’t get much better than that, well, unless you had ice cream after dinner!
Off for a beautiful drive to Oradea, Romania tomorrow morning in what appears to be a tour bus. (It would be nice to have this in Africa! But, we’ll enjoy it for the time being here in Romania/Hungary. Good night!
