A Fierce Competition

A Fierce Competition

The weather has turned of cold and rainy.  We had experienced a few days in the 50’s with sunshine and it almost felt like a heat wave but we are back to cold and rainy.

 

We have been traveling again and so will share some photos from our photo album again.  Pictures speak louder than words!

 

!.  In the mornings, we get up and take a walk in the park near to our flat.  It is beautiful there and we have especially enjoyed the changing and falling leaves.  This is Ron in the park.

 

2.  We traveled to southern Serbia to a place called Prokuplije.  We met with the Red Cross, who in turn set us up with the Agricultural High School there to see about their need for a greenhouse.  We think our idea of providing greenhouses for agricultural High Schools to grow vegetables and give them to the local soup kitchens and for the Red Cross to distribute to the needy is a good project.  #2 picture is of the Red Cross and Agricultural High School Director, as well as Ron & I.

 

3.  This is an old greenhouse in the area.  They last for years and do a good job of growing and protecting vegetables from the cold weather as you can see in Pic. 4.  This is baby spinach growing inside of a greenhouse.

 

5.  We also traveled to Kraljevo where Ron found a tractor to drive.  It made him feel right at home.

 

6.  We were really impressed with the Agricultural High School in Kraljevo.  The principal of director is a woman and she is really with it.  This was the nicest school we have seen since we arrived in Serbia.

 

7.  This is a view of the barns and outbuildings at the Kraljevo School.

 

8.  Cows and lambs like these live inside of a barn most or all of their lives.  They don’t go outside to pasture or to walk around.  Their stalls are amazingly clean and they don’t smell as you might expect.

 

9.  We visited a hospital in Kraljevo with the Red Cross ladies there.  We went there to meet with this really great doctor (on the right side in this photo).  He has the best attitude.  He feels that you are never too old or too knowledgeable to take more classes.  He is interested in the Neo-Natal Resuscitation class that our specialists teach.

 

10.  We just reopened the “Outreach” center at the church.  Ron and I are in charge of it.  We organized a ping pong tournament and made mounds of popcorn for those who came.  These people take their ping pong seriously!  We had a nice plaque made to award to the winner at the conclusion.  We will have ongoing tournaments and a person has to win 3 tournaments in a row to keep the plaque permanently.  If someone else wins the second tournament, he takes the plaque from the first winner and so on until someone is able to win 3 in a row, at which time it will be his (or hers) and we will have a new plaque

made.

 

11.  We had 35 people attend our first Outreach for the fall of 2009.  This pic. is a serious foosball game in progress while the ping pong was going on in another corner of the center!!!  Everyone had so much fun and we are all looking forward to next Saturday as we weren’t able to finish the ping pong tournament as we ran out of time.

12. This is the Vasica Family.  Bro Vasica teaches institute.  He and his wife have 5 children.  Pictured with Bro Vasica are his son Dusan ( who just turned 12 and is our branch’s only deacon) and Katarina who is 15 and is a runner.  She has won many championships for her ability in running.

 

13. Just to prove that the Lord lover Serbia too, here is a beautiful rainbow (taken from our balcony on the 11th floor flat
