Last night it rained a lot! I could not sleep because of it! It made me worry about our building house. Today when Lau went to check it was flooded. So we lost some resource, but it is ok. A lot of our kids who come to the center and live nearby have their houses flooded in a worse way. Please pray for them and for us.

history of our house

In January 2007 we purchased a piece of land (270 square meters) in Galati with the Klepac’s. Immediately we start the paperwork to get the permit to build a Duplex. So in September 2007 we start to dig for building our concrete foundation. After finishing the foundation on May 2008 Lau and Joel start to build the first level of the two houses with wood. The structure was done by end of August, same summer. Unfortunately, in March 2009, Klepac’s moved back to US, after taking this hard decision a few months earlier. For months in a row we tried to find neighbors who we would know. Now, Fani (our colleague) and Lili are in the process to buy the second part of the unfinished house from Klepac.
These days Lau start to build the second level and also to help Fani with the plans for him to finish their own house.
So here are some pictures of the second floor building!!!!

exciting things!!!!!

1. Monday I had a day off. I stayed home and started my final paperwork for finishing the class for social work degree. With this degree our center will have a qualified social work for who we prayed in last few years because it was required by the Labor Office. It's not this what is exciting, but the fact that we have 3 new candidate who kind of want to work with us and have social work degree. So if they are going to be call by God, maybe they will work with us. I hope we have the wisdom to discern and let God lead us in this process.

2. Monday afternoon we had our first meeting with our Sabbatical committee for planning our sabbatical. It's exciting and anxious in the same time about what we are going to do for several months! I am going to write more about this later on.

3. Lau starts to work on our house. Yesterday he was helped by Paul and Tom to remove the provisory roof. Today he started to build the second floor of our house. We bought the wood about a month ago and put it in our courtyard to get dry.

4. I am so exciting that my brother Nelu, who leaves in US, will come in Galati to visit with my niece, Evi and my nephew, Samuel. I did not see Evi since she was 4 yo (she will be 8 yo in July 14th) and I never meet Samuel since he was born. Nelu will come also with a team form of 5 people from his church who wants to visit and help us at Casa 'La vale.'

inventing a new recipite, by vali

Tonight I invented a new recipe which I am going to share with you. So I had two handfull of rucola salad from our garden and I torn with hand, 3 green onions also from our garden and I chopped a few fresh basil leaves from my pot, chopped, 1 big tomatoe chopped. then I fryed 7 mushroom chopped and 1 zuchini thinly sliced in 3 tablespoon of olive oil. I also fryed 100g of bacon cut in thin strips. I set them aside to cool off. I mixed all ingredients in a large bowl with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. And the result was yammy!!! Me and Lau enjoy eating it!!!!!
If you like this kind of mix, have fun trying it!!!!
