I finally made it back to Amman, with a few more books and a lot less money. There were many memorable moments during this trip – I will mention here only some highlights.
I did get to meet John Piper. That is right – I briefly shook his hand as he was browsing at ETS through the Christian Focus publications. The conversation was brief (I kind of froze 😦 ), but it is still something to brag about. 🙂
We also had a wonderful dinner at ETS with (most of?) the Romanians present there. I got the pleasure to meet Sorin Sabou (El-Roi Romanian Baptist Church in Chicago) and Adonis Vidu (Gordon-Conwell). I also enjoyed the time with ‘older’ friends: Emil Bartos, George Hancock Stefan, and Radu Gheorghita.
