Looking for a lawyer

Biss found a former classmate who specializes in criminal law.  After gathering the necessary paperwork today, we can meet with her tomorrow.   The situation is so complicated to address, but not too difficult to understand.  An initial look into the legal documents removes any infinitesimal question of right in the case.


After our worship, we went to visit Draga.  On the way we stopped to buy her some food.  She didn’t know I was in the country, so she was really surprised when she saw us at the door.  We had a pleasant study.  Her health appears to be fairly stable, but she seemed to have the sense that she isn’t too long for this world.

Visiting Dinyu

Sunday morning Biss, Dinyu’s daughter and I traveled just outside the city by microbus to visit Dinyu.  After waiting for about an hour and half, we were allowed inside for an hour.   His spirits were good considering the circumstances.  He has no access to a library, or any media.  We will buy him a radio.  The pictures are of his daughter, the microbus, and various scenes at the prison.

Saturday in Sofia

Biss and I had a great visit on Saturday as we mapped out our plans for the weekend.  We walked as we talked.  As we strolled though one open area, I got the chance to see that an old European tradition is alive and well.  Men still meet in the park to play chess.  People still gather to watch.

In Sofia

I arrived in Sofia this afternoon. The flat is not as nice as usual and it’s on the 4th floor, but the location is great.   I’ll be meeting Biss in a few minutes for supper and to discuss our trip to visit Dinyu in prison.  We plan to go by bus after our worship ion the morning.

In Prague

After a 5 hour layover in Amsterdam, I finally got to Prague Friday afternoon.  I met Mike and Tatana for a great visit.  We worked on our aproach the the upcoming study in Bratislava and enjoye a great meal together.

Leaving on Thursday

If all goes as planned, I’ll fly from Dallas on the 9th and arrive in Prague the following day.  I hope to be able to post updates every couple of days.  Please keep this effort in your prayers.
