More kid-friendly sights and a little about what happened while we were here in my next post. I'm trying to get you caught up quickly because life picked right back up when we got home and don't want to fall too far behind.

The whole time we were on the train and in the taxi on the way to the airport I was craving an apple. I almost asked Eric to stop at one of the fruit stands along the road. While we were waiting at the airport, a lady sat down beside me and started talking to the girls and I. She told us that she had been reading the Bible, but didn't understand it and had also just met another Baptist. We told her that we didn't believe that was just a coincidence. We didn't get to talk to her for very long but she accepted the tract we gave her and before we left she gave us two oranges and an APPLE!
When we reached Poland, we were met by Mr. Johnson. Mr. & Mrs. Johnson have been missionaries to Poland for about 17 years! They were a huge blessing to us during our stay and helped us in any way that they could. Since their children and grandchildren live in the states, they spoiled our girls a little while we were there...and us. (They treated us to Pizza Hut the day after we arrived. MMMMM)

This part of our tour takes us to the girls' (soon children's) room. They tried to make sure that they were in every picture. Even though it was light out, it was close to bedtime, so they were all ready for bed...at least, they were dressed for bed.
As you can see, they are really enjoying showing you their room.

Also, please be praying for a lady named Oksana. (You can see her picture here.) She has been coming to church and has also started doing Bible lessons. So far she has had 3 Bible lessons. When we got home from church on Sunday, she called and said that she was not able to make it to services because she had been at the orthodox church praying for a job all night. She has been without work for some time now. Though we care about her physical needs, we are more concerned about her spiritual need of a Saviour. Please be praying that she will continue to be open to the gospel and trust in Jesus Christ as the only way to heaven.
