The first LST party of 2013 was a success! We brought finger-foods: cookies, chips, open faced sandwiches, and candy (all of which disappeared quickly.)  After most of the food vanished, Kaki pulled out the cards and initiated an intense round of Uno (the players’ ages ranged from 11 to 78)Games, like Uno, are an engaging, interactive way to practice speaking English while getting to know the other players. Much to everyone’s surprise, the eleven-year-old beat the competition and went out first! This party served as an ice-breaker for past and present LST readers, friends, and members of the Agape Church. It’s amazing to watch the Lord bring people together! It’s also cool to win Uno…


Several of us from the Red Cross went up the mountain to Kommando yesterday. It was “warm” (about 32.5* F), so the roads were slushy, as well as steep and narrow. Many thanks to Joco, an awesome driver, for getting us to the top! But why risk skidding off a mountain in the first place, you ask? There were two reasons: to distribute food tickets in the village to those that qualify, and to coordinate future events with the Mayor of Kommando. So we split up and went our separate ways! Some of us distributed the tickets, some met with the Mayor, and some (those who don’t speak Hungarian) listened politely. After business, jokes, and some wonderfully warming drinks, we drove down the road to this lovely location before returning home. Mission accomplished!
