Leaving on a jet plane...




Well we left last Sunday from PDX and landed in Lithuania on Monday afternoon. We are going to be in Vilnius, the capital, for a week. Then we will head off to Kaunas this weekend. The city is beautiful and the weather was too (on Monday and Tuesday). Wednesday however the tide turned and the rain has set in (kinda reminds us of Oregon). Right now we are drinking in the culture and are frustrated by the language. To be honest it feels a lot like a short term trip as we walk around town seeing the sights and learning how to ride public transportation. The thing we have to remeber is that this is a marathon and not a sprint, like a short term often is. We had a chance to get into the dorms of Vilnius University the other day and got to talk to students about Jesus. Many were open to talking about Him. It was cool.
