Trinity Students

I hope that everyone has enjoyed their Snow Days!!

Tonight we are staying in Bad Muskau, which is right on the Polish-German border. We will have out last day of walking tomorrow, when we will head for Spremberg. Today was not as bad as yesterday, my feet aren't quite as sore. It was a beautiful walk, lots of pine trees on either side of the road, with snow. The hardest part of the walk was when we had to walk on the road made of cobblestones. Their roads are about as wide as one lane of our roads, but cars and trucks go both ways.

We saw the barns where our dads spent the night, although they are in not in very good shape anymore. The walk also took us through several little towns. We can be so thankful that we are as blessed with the wonderful homes and town that we live in! We were joined for a while by a little boy about 9 years old who was roller skating down the road. We don't know where he came from, there weren't any houses around, but he enjoyed going along with us!

We all hurt quite a bit, but I can't imagine walking this in a snowstorm all this way when I was malnourished and weak.

I don't know if we will be able to work out a webcam, because we are never sure exactly what time we will finish our walk, but I will try.

God's blessings to you!

We also visited another school. Those students have a new gym that is about the same age as ours, and although it is a very nice gym by Polish standards, it is not nearly as nice as ours!
