Dear Heights family, 

It's hard to believe that it is already Saturday! This week has flown by and we only have a couple of days left here in Bulgaria. Today was our day to be with the Sunday school teachers and helpers of the church and help them with their bible lessons.

Dear Heights family, 

What a great day this has been! We traveled around Kazanlak and the surrounding areas, sightseeing and soaking up the great culture of Bulgaria. One of the things that we have most loved about this country is that it is absolutely beautiful.

Dear Heights Family, 

It is truly amazing to be a part of something so special as this mission trip. Today was our last day volunteering at the orphanage and it was an emotional one. As we finished all the work outside yesterday, today was all about giving gifts to the kids and the workers and ministering to them. We handed out some of the prayer shawls that we brought to the women and men who work there. You could tell that the shawls meant a lot to them and some of them immediately took them out of the bag and wrapped themselves up.

Dear Heights family, 

Our second day in Bulgaria has come and gone! It was a day full of happy spirits and hard work both at the orphanage and at the church. We were a little bit worried this morning because the forecast said that there was at least a 70% chance of rain all day. However, the Lord is good and He answered our prayers.

We have arrived in Kazanlak, Bulgaria after a long day of travel. Our flight from Dallas arrived a little early in Frankfurt, which ended up being a good thing as we had to race all around the airport to get to our next flight. The gate number had changed from what it was originally and the line for security was one of the longest we had ever seen. We barely made it through in time (Praise the Lord) and made in to Sofia safely where we met up with George. All of our luggage made it and we are exhausted, but we are ready to start a this amazing trip, after a well-deserved night's rest of course. We can't wait to see what God has planned for us! :)
