My first preaching experience came in Moldova. I shared from Matthew 1:22,23, the quotation of the prophecy from Isaiah from 7:14, Immanuel, God with us. Nicolae translated for me into Romanian.
At the end of the caroling trip we went back to the church for a large Moldovan style family meal. The food was delicious.
For any of you who have been to camp before have seen this game. Pastor Anatol was telling a story about shoes... If you haven't seen this before, and someday you meet Pastor Anatol, ask him to tell you about how shoes are made!
