Norwood .. July 5 10:30 am

The photo on the screen is of the waterfalls in the mountain behind the farm .. come visit us and we will take you there !

This is the platform set up at the Norwood church where I will be sharing updates about the farm and several other projects in Kyrgyzstan.   This church has been an incredible support to us over the years, in fact it was on this platform one year ago next week that Jengish shared his vision of "the farm" .. one year ,I can't believe all that has transpired in just one year .. wish we could bring everyone to the farm with us but can't, so we will bring the beauty of the mountains and people of Kyrgyzstan to them.

service starts at 10:30am .. hope to see you there.

Here is a schedule of where we will be for the next month .

July 12 ..... Stirling
July 19...... Saint-Andre-Avellin
July 26 ..... Espanola
Aug 2 ....... Peterborough

Above All

Exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think ! This comes to mind today as we take a look at the harvest ,  Last week We showed photos of what a food share looked like, it would fit nicely into a large grocery bag.  This week the food shares are over the top.  Here is what 1 share looks like this week ..

Families will not only get enough produce for them to eat now, but will be able to do their own canning for the winter.  I would love to have a little extra money so we could buy all the canning supplies , then give them the supplies as well as the produce .. 
I never would have dreamed that we would have so much food coming off the farm. 

It took a couple days of picking, and will take another day to deliver everything.. here they are loading up .

First stop was out to Larisa.  She will bring this batch to the mens home, and to families that she works with 

The next load was delivered to families that we work with .

A friend of ours works to help families as well, so they brought him a load of food so he can hand it out to those in need as well 

as the season moves on, it is possible that next weeks harvest will be even bigger .. Soon we are going to have to look into getting a trailer for Jengish so he won't have to make so many trips. 

I think it is safe to say that Goosey has out grown his bucket .. 

a couple new babies at the hospital.. unfortunately they are a little to small to eat zucchini , but fortunately we still have money in the baby food fund, and Sergey was able to bring them formula today

monthly sponsorship

Julie has been busy working on sponsorship updates. She still has 4 children ready to sponsor with a 'thank you' letter and a picture set to mail, but they don't have a sponsor, we did not tell them that though so they made some cards along with the other kids - Monthly sponsorship for what ever you can give, support goes toward clothing, outings and regular 'Homework Club'. email us if you are interested .

We have also been working on our speaking schedule for our time here in Canada .

a history together

We found this photo on the left, it is of Olya a few years ago when she was on an outing at the Barana tower .  The one on the right was from a couple days ago when Emma and Jengish took the workers from the farm on an outing.  I think it is so cool that we have a history with these kids, and they can know and trust us from years of connection that we have had with them..  Do you think that was by coincident or by a greater design . 

New life emerges out at the farm today , this is the first of 4 nests that we have ducks sitting on . 

  There will be a lot to harvest for the food shares this week, so they have started picking cucumbers a couple days early so that they will get all the harvest in on time to deliver Thursday..
