I think what we have all come to realize is that weather we are here or there, or somewhere in between ( like you Ed) we really are all "In this together" and that is a beautiful thing.
This video is a collection of SOME of the supporters and workers around the world that are a part of the incredible things that are happening . The song "We're in this together" was written by our son Ben..
There are just so many out there that have been an important part of what we do that I think I will have to get Benjamin to write us a 45 minute version of the song.
If you are not able to view the video from FB, you may have to watch it directly at http://www.actofkindness.blogspot.com/

Are you going to ahead to USA this morning? Have a goodtrip! Larisa
came today over here and told me to write about that The radio mandied
2or 3 days ago he was in Kemin senior`s home. And Tania is asking
moneyfor his funeral. Actually they buried him already but Larisa told
her that she doesn`t havemoney for that if she will borrow moneyfrom
somebody Larisa would talk with you John, about that.So Tania did
so.While Larisa was here Tania called her about that money Larisa told
her thatshe is siting with me and talking aboutthat . So Larisa thinks

Our next public engagement is one that we are again very excited.. Our friend Ann is taking the lead on this . It will be on Friday Feb. 18th in the DC area. We will be combining this event with the Kyrgyz Children's Futures. The are a great group of Kyrgyz that live in the U.S., but continue to raise funds and awareness for the orphans in Kyrgyzstan. We have had the opportunity to work at some of the same orphanages that they are working , so we are excited to see what will come out of this great night. If you would like to attend, please contact Ann for more details . firstname.lastname@example.org
From there it is on to Richmond Virginia... details to follow.
I say Oh never mind .. lets just set it up again.. No problem... well yes there is a problem.. you see they can't set me up for the service unless I purchase it rather then rent... because I ALREADY HAVE A BELL DISH THAT I HAVE NOT PAID ANY RENT ON.. ya the one they had no record of... so finally I am back to someone at the Bell sales / accounts office.. After being told again that they have nothing on my profile about the satellite TV, and they start to claim full disconnect and question if it was even a Bell satellite I ordered, I say to him " Will you please go to the notes on my account, and tell me the last time I phoned your office." "Yes sir.. last Wednesday" ... " And now tell me what the notes say was the reason for the call" .. to which he replies .. " Yes it was to order Sate...l...i.....t........e... tv " "OK So now lets see how we can get the information from that screen to the one that tells someone to show up at my house".. Of course you know it was not that easy and the fun continued for another 10 minutes.. then the fool says .. is their anything else I can do for you today Mr Wright ... so I figure well I have him on the line.. I ask him to fix my phone because when I get a long distance call it now makes three short rings.. He starts to tell me that this is a good thing.. so I have to walk him through the problem... " One ring is for us... two rings is for my mom.... and tell me Who should answer the phone when it has three rings... ?".. after stumping him with this question, I then ask him to remove the call interrupt off my phone that starts beeping when I am talking and someone is trying to call... He then tells me that I don't have that service .. and never have.. funny It did it an hour ago when I was on the phone.. so I say to him " Look in the notes on my account.. do you see a call from me in November? what does it say in the notes...?" at which point her reads " Please remove call waiting from line". I then told this poor fellow that I had spent enough time with him this morning, but would leave him with this little project to sort out for me...
I always seem to expect more from companies here in Canada then in Kyrgyzstan.. I have no idea why.. the only difference seems to be that in Kyrgyzstan their English is better !

Many of you will remember my internet experience.. I went in to get Internet. they told me that it would cost $65 a month.. Ouch.. I did not really have much choice, I need internet, so I asked .. "Is this unlimited"? fair question... answer "Yes" so I went ahead and got it.. 10 days later they called from the internet company to tell me that I had to bring them another $110. "WHAT I thought it was unlimited"... "Yes it is, there is no limit to the amount you want to purchase" was the reply... This came as no surprise to me as this was the same office that would not except my $4.15 and turn my phone back on until I pd Lynn and Ruby's internet bill.. after all I like them was a foreigner... so I should pay their bill and then go get my money from them....
Today I got a call. Three of our college kids that we sponsor have a small problem. They need to pay their tuition now.. So again.." I thought we paid the tuition for the year for them" .. "you did"... and this is a new year! so for Luba, Jildiz and Shakier, I need to come up with another $500 for them to continue college.
Just one more thing to add to my growing list of things that we will need to take care of .
On a brighter note, I just received confirmation that we have a sponsor that will cover the cost of 15 of the 23 beds that we need for the Baby hospital, so we will be able to get a good start on that project...
