Gandhi, Tshirts, & Hot Cocoa, Oh My!
Most of the Gandhi students board at the school dorm and they begin trickling in between 5PM-8PM on Sunday evenings. What better way is there to be greeted on a cold wintery night than with a steaming hot cup of cocoa? In one of the common areas the FBC Greenville folk set up a hot chocolate station and a table overflowing with tshirts. The hot chocolate was a treat and the marshmallows were a new thing for some of the kids. Since there is no equivalent in Hungarian we called them "sponge candy". Like most teenagers, the Roma kids love tshirts. The long-sleeved, red t's with a light bulb on the front were very popular. The theme this week is "Let your Light Shine". There were lots of shouts of greetings as the older students came through the doors and saw members of the Greenville group - some have come multiple times and the relationships have grown.
Great way to spend a cold, snowy evening in Pecs, Hungary
