After doing all to stand... stand some more !

PETER LEONARD of The Associated Press has just reported :
Opposition leaders in Kyrgyzstan say they have formed a new acting government in the Central Asian nation. The announcement was made Wednesday on a state television channel that opposition members stormed and seized in the capital of Bishkek. Temir Sariyev, an opposition party leader, told The Associated Press that a coalition of politicians had agreed on a new prime minister as well as a new interior minister and new security chief.
Officials say 40 people have been killed and more than 400 wounded Wednesday in clashes with police trying to quell the anti-government uprising.


Emails , Face book chats, skype , home phone, cell phones, and satellite phone all a buzz asking us "What now"... I think that those in the West are worried that we can't get home, and those here are worried that we may leave... We have an absolute peace in our being here... We know that we are here for a time such as this, and if anything, we are needed here now more then ever... some may not understand, but I feel that the dates were set and plans went into motion long ago, and were directed by One that knows the end from the beginning... We will stay the course... We will do all that we can do, and until the officials here say otherwise we will stand some more...

I have to tell myself this, because just as I know I am to be here right now... I feel just as strongly that I should not change my departure and stay longer.. There is much to be done both here and in the West to make sure that the work continues... that we are poised and ready to help our friends to rebuild... and I think at this point most importantly that we are able to re group and get back here sooner then later... almost all of those we support are at the mercy of a nearly bank erupted government that will be struggling to meet even the most basic of needs...

Emma is safe , she is at total peace with what is going on here, and has a soothing gentle spirit that will be needed here in the months to come... We may be a bit crazy and we will keep an open mind... but for now we stand some more ....

I want to thank every one that has been lifting us up, as well as all those who have supported financially to this trip... Please continue to remember our family and friends here in this beautiful land... and please continue to stand with us...
