What it do America? We had a stellar day hiking today. The Romanians don’t mess around and wanted to go all the way to the top of the mountain*(see bottom) so we split into groups. About half of the people went for gold on the summit while us milder folks just hiked a little bit and enjoyed Nature. J Munny and I had the opportunity to swim in a nice little pool with a small water fall cascading into it. Even though the water was cold, YOLO was running high so it was still fun. The weather was beautiful and it was so refreshing to get out and work a little bit while feeling God’s sweet beauty caress our bosoms. So overall everyone was super stoked about the day. Then tonight Daniel gave another really good talk and hit everyone with the gospel. Taylor, Jeremy, Josh, Betty (a Romanian), Leah, Olivia and Abbie did an amazing job on a skit depicting God making us, then us falling away, then God saving us again! Needless to say people were crying. We’re still working through some hard things with some of the campers but on the whole the small group talks have been progressing and getting better and better. Peace- Grog
Hey everybody! Camp and getting to know all the Romanians and Romania in general has been an incredible adventure so far. Tonight Daniel shared the story of the gospel with the campers and we could tell it had a powerful effect on many of them. In small groups we were able to discuss what it means to have a relationship with Christ and were able to listen to many of their stories as well as share some of our own. By no means has camp been a piece of cake, but God has definitely been working in all of our hearts. Earlier in the day, we hiked and that was pretty sweet…actually amazing. Like Grog mentioned, we split into a few different groups and we (Hannah, Jeremy and Amelia) were among those daring enough to take on the light adventure. It was a bit strenuous 2.5 hour hike up the mountain but we made it and the view was spectacular—a crisp stream within a luscious green valley, all enclosed by vast mountainous mountains. Overall, the day was full of challenges that our team utilized to build stronger relationships with each other and the campers. It was a long day and we need to hit the hay. See ya! –Amelia, Hannah and Jeremy J

*Jimmy here. Just want to say that I was on the hike that went to the top of the mountain and that though it was strenuous, it was a very safe and fun hike.
