The day began early. I was ready go leave for worship early enough that I decided to walk to help me get ready for the day. After a brisk 45 minute walk I was at the cultural center where the group is now meeting.
The room they are in now is very small, as the picture indicates. However, as a result of the generosity of some brethren in Texas, they will have the option of moving to a larger room with more than an hour period in which to meet.
After services, we all went out to eat. We have done that before, but it seemed to mean more to them than I could have imagined. After the meal, Biss and I went to see Draga. The look on her face when she saw us was one I will treasure for a long time. She rushed us through a discussion of her physical condition by repeating in English, “lesson? lesson?” Her desire to study was amazing- especially considering the fact that her heart problems had kept her inside her flat for the last 10 days (She is not doing well at all.) After an hour of study, we went to the market and bought groceries for her. We left her with tears welling up in her eyes and struggling with words of thanks. She is a remarkable lady.
After the trip back into the city, Biss and I spent another couple of hours walking and talkig about the condition and needs of the church as well as just enjoying one another’s company. The evening ended with me meeting with a young couple I have known for some time. During my last visit, my discussion with the young lady about the illness of a friend led us into a discussion of Biblical themes.
I am supposed to meet with Savella tomorrow afternoon and Biss in the evening. After that, I am supposed to eat supper with some people I have been discussing spiritual matters with for some time. On Tuesday I will head to Budapest.
