Orahovica, I will miss you
5. The bakery. Fresh baked rolls for 50 cents. Bakers who smile pleasantly when I make a mistake in Croatian because they've been part of the learning process with me. Burek s mesom. You will be missed.
3. Baseball. "Are you kidding me?" you may ask. "The World Series starts the day you get to the States and you're complaining about leaving baseball behind?" Last Sunday we played our best game yet. These teens and kids have come a long way since we started 3 years ago. Can't wait for spring BOK!
2. Our church. The other day we were talking to someone in the States about our sending church. Turns out, even though we're considered missionaries, our sending church is right here in Orahovica. They pray for us. They support us. They've cared for us tremendously. We'll miss the corporate worship with Betanija church while we're gone.
1. Our friends. Whenever you leave a place, it's always the people you miss most. No exception here.
Orahovico, falit' ćeš me.
