Sweet Sleep

Praise God I almost slept through the night last night! (I sound like my niece Kaitlin ha!) But seriously, this jet lag thing is miserable! I am thankful that I slept most of the night and am feeling energized today! Hopefully I will be back to normal soon! When I woke up in the middle of the night, I started praying that I would fall back to sleep. Then I remembered what we told the sweet orphans when we prayed for them after we finished their rooms. I would say that when they get in bed and pull the covers up around them, it is like a big hug from Jesus. I love that! Here are a few more pictures of my trip!
One of my favorite parts of the week was the dance parties we had with the sweet orphans. If you know me, then you know that I LOVE a good dance party!!! Jerad saw this girl dancing and said, "Rachel I found your dancing twin!" And he was SO RIGHT!! We are dancing twins! We got a video of us dancing together. If I knew how to upload of video on here, I would! But until then, here is a picture of me and Vica my dancing twin!!
This is one of the 10 Jon's so we called him Little Jon or Jaaaaaaaan. He was one of my favorites! He always wore this red hat and was always so much fun! I think he looks like a little Heath Ledger. I wanted to bring him home with me!!

The last day we were in Moldova, our team got to have some fun and enjoy the country of Moldova. I was surprised how beautiful this country is!! One of my favorite things is when we went to a Monastery that is built all underground. All of the ceilings were built very low to help the monks remember to always be bowed down and have a humble heart.
When we got outside to the top of the Monastery there is an incredible view. My pictures do not do justice of the true beauty of this place. But when we got up there, our team spread out and took some time to be alone and pray for our kids we got really close to at the orphanage. Here is a group picture on top of the Monastery.
