Ok, so here’s the rules for this hop:Go to the place where you upload all your photos. If you don’t upload them online, just go to wherever you store your pics on your computer. Open the oldest album, and post the first photo. Tell the story behind it. Grab the MckLinky and post it on your blog. Just for fun, tag 3 people you want to see old photos of
I have hundreds of pics stored on my computer ... so many that I didn't even realize I still had these pics on it. This is a picture of my trip to Romania way back in the early 90's. I went there on a mission trip with Roy Hauser, Brian Hitsman, Scott Planck, and Rick Brown. I believe the mission group Project Partner led that group and it was my first and possibly my best mission trip ever. I know it was definitely one of the highlights of my life.
Romania had a lot of orphans and street kids and we went there to work with Jesus the Hope of Romania to refurbish a building that would be used to house some of the street children in Timisoara.
Anyway, without getting into all that, on the last day there we went to sight-seeing. We went up into the Transylvanian Alps for a fantastic chicken dinner and then went on to see this castle. We arrived at the castle and our two Romanian friends stepped off to the side to chat about something. Me and the guys were looking at the castle and wondering how we were going to get over to it. (There was a large, deep pit-like thing around it). We did see an old wood plank bridge going across to it, but it seems to be in very, VERY bad shape. Several of the wood planks were missing and the others seemed to be deteriorating. It didn't look like it would hold the weight of a cat let alone 4 big guys and me. Now I might add that I am afraid of heights and this bridged gaped a very, VERY deep gorge thing. It may have been a mote, I'm not sure. In any case, it was so far down that it would have been impossible to survive a fall. About that time our two Romanian friends came up and said, "Let's go" and began across the bridge. We looked at each other in amazement. The guys all started across but not me. I yelled up ahead and told them I was kind of tired and would just stay behind and rest and wait for them. One of the Romanian guys came back and pleaded with me to come ahead and see the castle. "You must", he pleaded. Being a certified chicken I held my ground, determined to stay OFF the bridge. His pleas of "You must" continued but then took on an entirely different tone of "You MUST". OK, got it. I MUST, as in you have no choice in the matter Amber. So, I went but told my Romanian friend that I was hanging on to him for dear life. And I did.
