Bigger Than Jesus

I’m always delighted to find a blog entry from yet another satisfied visitor and link to them frequently on the site. But this entry from some Europeans who visited Suceava and Cluj (as well as Chisinau!) made me laugh due to this: We discovered the biggest Stefan cel Mare monument ever seen on earth.

Lots of Photos And Another True Tale of Surviving CFR Railways!

Heck, making it back out of … Continue reading My Top 5 Most Tenacious Missionaries Countdown!
