What a wonderful week-end in Slovakia!
Dave spoke at KPM 25+, a conference organized by our JV Slovakia team. It's amazing how much God can do in just 48 hours together with people. It's a week-end we won't soon forget.
After lunch with our friend and JV teammate, Katerina, we all headed to Bardejov.
We were near here four years ago for a wedding, but didn't get to come downtown. Now I know what we missed back then!
As a World UNESCO site, its beginnings were first written of in 1240, though settlers have been there since the Stone Age!
It's authentic old town square has such charm, especially in the glowing sunshine of a beautiful fall afternoon.
But the real reason we came was to see friends who serve with JV in this church in Bardejov.
Daniel and Maruska, whose wedding we came to four years ago, live just across the street, in view of their church where they serve.
We had the nicest afternoon, visiting them in their home, along with others who had also been at the conference with us. We love all of these dear ones and wished we could have stayed longer.
But with a four hour drive ahead of us, and happily tired from a full week-end, we said our goodbyes and headed for home.
Driving west towards Czech, we had a beautiful sunset that seemed to last longer than usual, with such pretty views until dark.
When we got home, our friend who's been caring for our dog during this past month, dropped her off. I always love being back here with her!
This has been a full fall of travels...and we're not finished yet! But for now we're home and that feels great!
