next stop Istanbul, on our way to Bishkek

We have a had a wonderful few days since our departure from Canada.   On the drive to the airport in Washington we have had the privilege to visit with the forever families of some of the kids that we have known from Kyrgyzstan.  It is such a blessing to see how well they are all doing.  

The last couple days have been here in Virginia with Amir and Danial ( Tiik ).  It is so great to see how happy they are and to spend some time with them, when we can keep up with them .  

Yesterday we even went to watch them at their ski lessons .. so cool 

Its now time to say good buy for a few months.  We head for the airport in a couple hours.    We will land in Bishkek on Friday morning , then we have a day and a half to put the final touches on things before we pick up the team on Saturday afternoon.  We are so blessed to have the team we do getting everything ready in our absence.  

Here are a few things we will be doing with this team if you are following along 

delivering Samaritans purse boxes 
putting up a fences at the farm
kids to the hot springs 
picnic with men from the mens home 
building a barn 
delivering food packages and restocking food garage 
visiting the seniors home 
working on the hospital clinic and visiting the baby orphanage 
taking kids to the ballet and the movies 
appreciation day dinner for those we work along side 
woman's day party. 

thats enough to get us started , I am sure there will be so much more going on over the next week . 

I was talking to Sam from iam1ru and he tells me that there is still room on the fall trip to Kyrgyzstan.  This is a great way to venture out on a missions trip.  Sam looks after everything for you at that end.  Trip prices include everything including project money .. this is great if you want to be part of a team but don't want to go through the extra work of putting one together .   

So follow along here for the next week and you can see some of the things that your team could be doing.
