We continue to have once in a lifetime experiences here in Serbia!

#1 pic is of Nikola, our Serbian teacher and translator and Elder’s Christiansen and Knight after Sunday dinner in our flat.  They were having fun modeling Ron’s new sesir (hat). 

Pic’s #2-16 of the new Sava Bridge being built over the Sava River to connect Belgrade to New Belgrade, of the river and of the city. Belgrade is really a beautiful city and a beautiful part of Europe.   Ron seized the once in a lifetime chance to take a ride in a wire basket suspended from the giant crane pictured here.  He accompanied Nikola , who is the official photographer for the progress on the bridge.  Ron was his 1st assistant for the afternoon.  He said it was a hair-raising experience but was so thrilled to get so many cool photos of the progress on the bridge, of the Sava River and of Belgrade.

#17 &18 are of Ron and me outside the Serbian National Bank.  This bank is still in use today but and is also a museum where you can take a tour and see some of the old inflation money and even have your picture printed on some currency.  There were two little guard stations outside the door that aren’t used anymore so Ron and I decided that we would be the guards for a moment!

We continue to love our mission and are experiencing more than we ever hoped to do in a lifetime.  The next few weeks are so booked that we won’t be celebrating Thanksgiving officially this year as we will be in Novi Sad running a Neo-Natal Resuscitation Training seminar.  Our thanks to Dr & Sis Bennett and Dr Groeberg who will be giving up their Thanksgiving with their own families to come to Serbia to conduct the 3 day seminar.  We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.
