Albania Day 8 : Work projects and a third home visit

Our second work day. Aaron and Nathan finished the second half of the gate at the center. Meanwhile, Jen and the kids finished assembling the metal shelving  and organizing the storage underneath the house.

While Aaron and Nathan finished the top of the gate (too high for the kiddos) Tobin and Andrew resumed their week-long nerf gun fire fight with Reni. 

Rachel and Ellie had more time to tell each other stories. Jen, Cora and Haley helped Cydil photograph and enter data on the computer for a project she is working on.

The afternoon provided an opportunity for one more house visit.  Here we are with the Koni family.  This family was the first in the village to believe in Christ. Their daughter Eda is very fluent in English and was extremely helpful in translating for us especially while we were hanging out with the youth in the village. We were able to spend a lot of time with Eda throughout our time in Albania.  We really enjoyed her fun, loving personality and her commitment to the ministry there in her village.

During our visit we were able to encourage one another with stories of all that God had done in our lives.  Even the kids shared testimonies of seeing God's healing power.

(You can see the bond that was formed between Rachel and Ellie in this photo.  They were attached at the hip.)

From here we headed back to the center for another round of open court volley ball and four square.  We finished the night packing up for our departure late the following evening.
