Romania Day 5
Tears and laughter have an interesting relationship. Today put their union on beautiful display.
As friendships deepen, the laughter grows, and with each chuckle, the heart opens a bit more. Through silly skits, lawn games, and perfectly timed jokes the laughter flowed freely today. I’m sure it could be heard in neighboring valleys.
Then comes the moment. The moment where you’re deep enough to reach the real person. It’s where the well that holds the reservoir of tears lies. Tonight the well gushed, sandwiched between more laughter. How this happens, I’ll never know, but when it does, it creates moments you remember forever. The drill that reached the well came in the form of real and raw testimony and honesty about relationships. Enough trust has been built between the chuckles that the real people showed up.
So here we are, the veil removed and the real people laid bare...Just in time. Tomorrow we will take a hike and give the first opportunity to respond to the Gospel. Pray for the door to remain open and for hearts to be ready to respond.
Today was special, and we’ll never forget.
With laughter and tears.
