After a short delay in Bulgaria, due to lost luggage, we finally made it to Sighisoara last Thursday night! We got settled into our host homes and started our day early on Friday. Our first day here we had our first language class and will continue to have language classes for the next six weeks. We also got to visit Tigmandru, the town where we will be spending most of our time this summer. The school there only goes through the eighth grade and many of the youth do not make the extra effort to finish schooling in Sighisoara. Many times they cannot find work either so they are left without much to do. We are going to partner with the Nazarene Church there and build relationships with the teens through crafts and sports clubs. We will also be assisting in some English classes that are already taking place at the church. We hope to start our clubs Tigmandru this week and will keep you posted! Thanks again for your prayers and support!
