Walked to Bethel Baptist which is the oldest Baptist church in Chisinau and maybe in Moldova. The service is conducted in Russian. We got there as the choir was practicing and before many others had arrived. This is a very traditional church. We sat in the balcony and observed that the men sit on one side and the women on the other.

Lots of good-byes today. Those aren't exactly easy but there is a real sense of joy because of the way this week has gone. We are leaving left over supplies, some clothes and taking with us rich memories and reasons to rejoice. Heading off to several days in Kiev, Ukraine before returning home by week's end. The prayers of many have availed much. Thanks from a full heart.
