Most of the homes did not have running water and we found out the first night when looking for the bathrooms that the outhouses had no electricity (flashlights also left behind at the Church) or benches to sit on.   We were very lucky in that we had warm blankets and were able to sleep comfortable.  The host family spoke no English and we spoke no Romanian so the first night without translators was a real challenge. 

 The community is aware of things available that they can’t afford so when the word got out in each community that Linda had Ultrasound,   the crowds came.   They were not symptom oriented but organ centric.   They didn’t have heartburn or indigestion; they had trouble with their liver or stomach.   Linda had fun.  The community seemed appreciative and listened to the message of Christ .
