|Dawn lives on Bach Street! And today is Bach's birthday!|
As I mentioned in the last post, I'm staying with Dawn and her friend Pam. Both of these women are internationally-minded women deeply committed to improving the lives of children. Pam has worked on child welfare issues around the world, and is meeting with some sort of important official this coming Monday here in Timisoara to discuss foster care and adoption. Dawn has been faithfully serving the kids of Romania with the love of Christ for 20 years. Needless to say, we had much to talk about!

We went to McDonalds from there, so the kids could have some ice cream, then we took them back to the center and went out for a nicer dinner ourselves, at a place called Casa Iosefin. I ordered a delicious chicken dish with mamaliga, which is a Romanian staple. A glass of wine rounded out the meal nicely, and I am satisfied in body and spirit tonight after such a lovely day.
I love this city and feel so comfortable here. If only I had time to do all I want to do in all the places I want to be! I feel like this trip has been so chock full of amazing experiences, and I can hardly believe there are only a few days left. Thankful for the perfect provision of the Lord - in friendships, in health, in fantastic weather, to name a few things. Just a few days left, and I'm determined to make the most of them!
