Day 2

Today was a fantastic day! Some team members woke up early in the morning and visited the Cosmos hotel gym, which apparently is a fantastic place to work out. Next it was breakfast time where we loaded up on eggs, sausages with mustard (strong mustard!), and sweet breads.

We took an van ride to Real (a large grocery store) and picked up hospitality gifts for the kids and staff. We found some great watermelons for American day. It was then onward to Ryazan on highway M5. However, a ride to Rybnoye/Ryazan is not complete without a stop at McDonalds!

With joyful anticipation, the team arrived at the Ministry Center at Ryazan. We had a wonderful time with the few orphans that were there along with the disciples. We took a tour of the facilities and were very impressed with the computer lab, kitchen, and living area. After watching a slide show of the ministry center opening, we walked down to a local cafe for dinner along with the Ministry Center staff and a few orphans. It was a fantastic time of sharing and fellowship. The team is looking forward towards great night of rest and are super excited to spend more time at the Ministry Center tomorrow before heading to the orphanage to kick off Summer Camp 2011 at 2:30 PM!
