to make a difference. It is one of those things.... When you hear that Julius will be on trip with you, you feel reassured. He works so hard, and cares so much. He brings joy to all he meets, and rolls with the punches, and somehow always manages to stay humbly in the background. For me he has been an example and an inspiration.
I look forward to many more years of partnership.
displaying his new "Home made Canadian Flag"
giving out fresh fruit to the disabled
Despite lots of work to do, he always takes the time to give undivided attention to the kids.
A generous spirit, and a warm heart.
Never afraid to clown around a little if it makes the kids laugh.
I think that we could all learn a lot from Julius.....We can make a difference!

Team K07 has arrived in Central Asia
The team from Goderich has arrived in Central Asia.Sorry about no pictures as of yet but I will try to update everyday and from this day forward have a pic to go along with the post.Everyone is doing well to this point. Michelle Findlay borrowed my converter plug for her curling iron and the cover came off so she tried to pull the plug out of the wall socket....hello....you guessed it....220 volts baby! Shazzaaaam! Peter now finds his wife more "electrifying" than ever. She is fine folks...Connie MacVicar is missing one bag of luggage. We are working on getting it. Please pray...all her personal items are in it. Steve Root decided to have "beef tongue and cheese" today for lunch...hello....he is a "freakshow" with a gut of steel! I love the guy...he is hilarious and a real trooper. For some reason he and Pastor Scott enjoy picking on me...and you know me I never deserve any of that.Anyways...gotta jet....get some sleep....gotta get over my jetlag.Will update tomorrow with pictures.

More great news for the kids in the village. I don't know if you have been following the posts over at http://www.possibilitiesinternational.blogspot.com/ Not only has the Church in Godrich come on board in support of the kids, but they have gone wild. They originally committed to $10 000, and now they have raised over $25,000. Whats even better news is that they have 12 people heading over to help with renovations. I'm telling you , things have sure come a long way from the first time we went there. You can check out some of the history of the orphanage at this previous post .... A Place In My Heart
