|The Rock Church|
learning to smile and nod a lot! One dear elderly woman came up to Ella and kissed her..... I have no idea what she was saying but she handed Ella a 5 lei bill (about 1.25 in US money) how sweet! All I could say in response was multumesc (Thank-you). The service began and we were surrounded by people to help us understand.... a girl next to me (who I promised not to mention her name) a man next to Joel and a man behind us.
As the service went on the man behind was translating as much as he could, but then the people next to us took over..... this is where the story turns comical..... We were looking at the passage in Luke about Jesus entering the city..... (it was Palm Sunday here) and as the Pastor was sharing from scripture about Jesus entering the city.... my friend (who I will not mention her name) said.... Jesus was coming into town on a..... how to you say it.... Monkey..... I definitely laughed out loud in church at the thought of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a Monkey.... I leaned over and let her know that the English word was Donkey and we both had a nice laugh.
