Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

Tuesday night: The call

So as you have seen and read below, Tuesday was a very busy walking day. My hair was a mess (the sweater I was wearing in my head didn't help either). We headed back to the apartment and as I was just about to fall asleep...we got the call we had been waiting for. "Steven Jenny get ready I will be there in less than 2 hours, the train leaves at 11pm tonight we have to be at the train station aound 10p to get the tickets" Oh my, we all took turns taking a shower eating, cleaning the apartment and packing. You could not even tell we were tired. We drank all the juice and had some bread and butter knowing we would probably get hungry on the train. The train would leave the capitol at 11pm and arrive at our childrens hometown at 7am. Our taxi driver, translator uncle Niko said he would also be going with us. He said "We are going to pick up teh social worker first and then go to the orphanage to meet the kids". We are going to see the kids on Wednesday!! Yahooo Yahooo. We were running around talking so excited when finally the door bell rang. It was Uncle Niko "ready, lets go". Well, we were not that ready so he helped us zipper the suitcases and carry them where our taxi driver was waiting for us. Off to the train station! The train station was very many people. I tried to post a video but it was dark Here are some pictures.
