This morning we went to Church and then in the afternoon we got to play mafia with a bunch of people after our Active X meeting (The college ministry and outreach). It was so much fun to play, especially since accusations and defenses were flying around the room in Russian. I would be sitting there focusing so hard on what people are saying and then all of the sudden, out of the blue, I would hear, " Ya doomayo shto Garrett Mafia!"
"Whoa hold on there, Ya ne Mafia, Ya ne mafia!!"

Yeah that was about the extent of my defense.

Afterwards I sat down with a friend Andrei and he taught me some simple prayers in Russian that I can pray throughout the week. Looking forward to it!

That's probably a great way to learn the language, by doing something fun like Mafia. I love that game. Glad ya'll enjoyed a Sunday afternoon..we're enjoying ours now. :) Have a good week. WIll be praying for your language acquisition.

Mafia is especially fun in Bulgaria, because the yes head nod means no and the no head shake means yes. Needless to say it makes for an interesting game.
