This week's subject line reflects my P-day activities from yesterday.
We took a train down to Timisoara again to play some laser tag at a place down there only to find out that it was closed, the previous day having been Easter. (Things are SHUT DOWN here when Easter and Christmas roll around.) So instead we went to a park and played some soccer and did some slack-lining. It was really cool and fun. Then, due to some mixups in the train times, we missed our intended train back to Arad, giving us an extra two hours to chill in Timisoara. And what else happened to be happening in Timisoara that night than a professional soccer game!
Some of you caught that last week, I met a professional soccer player in Timisoara who is over from England right now to play on Timi's pro team. He invited us to a match of his but since I live in a different city, I never thought I would be able to catch one.
But... When two free hours opened up and I found out that his team would be playing a match in said hours I said, "HAI LA MECI!!!" meaning LET'S GO TO THE MATCH!!! So we went. We had to leave early to catch our train and it turns out that our friend went into the game right after we left. Sad, but awesome that he's getting some playing time so soon after having joined the team.
Easter was awesome. Saturday night we attended the midnight service of the largest Orthodox church here in Arad. It was a really cool event to go to. There were some great sermons given, which was awesome to see. It's cool that our church and the Orthodox church agree on so many things.
It's been pretty rainy here in Arad which always slows down the work on the streets, but we've taken it as an opportunity to look for some former investigators and try to make contact with them. Hopefully between that and our English classes, we'll find someone to work with.
I love you all! Have a great week :)
P.S. The internet cafe in Arad doesn't let me plug in my camera or flash drive so I have to send pictures when we have access to the computers at the church. FYI
