More "Shop till you drop"...


I think the bag says it best.... Thank you to all the child sponsors.... Today we got to take the older girls from the orphanage out for new shoes and some other needed clothes... It is amazing what a little shopping therapy can do. The girl in this photo is one that has always been very reserved... in fact it has always been difficult for us to get her to smile....not today... she was all smiles....
The girls loved the camera's for the day... kids just love to get a chance to take photo's



heading back to the bus after a power shop. Back at the apartment for supper and to get ready for the baby shower for Christina ... can you believe that for four years now we have had to fight to get a smile out of Bektagool ..... Here the kids are making cards for Christina The problem with such a short trip is that you spend the first week going around saying hello to everyone, and the second week going around saying goodbye. and that leaves another bunch of people that will have to wait for the next trip.... We have been going full out for the whole trip, and we have just touched the surface ....It's a good thing that I have another month ........ As soon as the girls go I will be moving to the capital city with Jengish for a few days to catch up on his work with the homeless, ... Tomorrow, we will be going to the Drug rehab centre with him, then back to town for a special women's celebration that we are sponsoring.... Jengish David and I will be staying back at the apartment with Torat and Becksolten for that one. I think we have about 3 hours open in the afternoon ... I wonder what we will do to fill that time..... I will post more in the morning about the baby shower..... Off to bed now....
