What's this????? Is it another revolution??? Is it a movie star?????? No... it is Robo Kazik and Mrs Clementova!! They are performing (separately of course) at Nitra Days! A celebration of Cyril and Methodius.

It's amusing to me, they are celebrating something so remarkable in the funniest way... You see, Cyril and Methodius were two of the first missionaries to ever be sent out from Rome, and where did they go? Why, they came here! Not just to Slovakia, but to Nitra in the late 800's! These two men introduced the Glagolitic alphabet, which was the base for most Slavic languages still in use today (with adaptations...)

They translated the Bible, as well as other Christian texts. They had thier own Bible School and after their deaths, their pupils carried the Gospel into the corners of Great Moravia. Because they were based in Nitra, the people here are very proud of their heritage. So proud, they are completely closed off...

Now, don't get me wrong, Robo Kazik and the others are great people, very popular amoungst the older generation, and well known by everyone. But this whole week, where there has been many traditional dances, traditional food, traditional songs, traditional handiwork... I have seen very little, hardly any actual mention of these two men and what they came here to do. So tonight, I walked amoungst these people, and I prayed over as many as I could. That they would see the true light, and the true God....
