Last day at the hospital
Today has been a beautifully rough day. All of us struggled having to spend our last shift with the kids, but we poured out all we had for the kids. We each have been touched by all the babies and have loved loving on them. We know that although we will be leaving them here, they will continued to be loved on by the Hope for the Nations team here and most importantly by God. This afternoon Robin, Tracy and Colleen went into the gypsy village to deliver groceries to a couple sponsored families. These families live in extreme poverty. We were able to meet some of the families that the kids at the hospital come from. The families were thankful to receive food. Hope for the Nations is hoping to collect enough donations to rebuild the roof on one of the sponsored homes. We also met with a family who has a handicapped daughter and is hoping to receive a sponsor. It was a life changing experience to see the living conditions of others who have almost nothing. We are thankful to have been given the opportunity to be in Romania and love the people. Each one of us has been learning something unique from God and each one of has felt connected to a specific baby. Our hearts are forever changed and we will continue to love and pray for these little ones even though we will be home soon.
