Before we left Kyrgyzstan in June, we had some of the kids write letters to their sponsors. at one of the small orphanages, there was a group of about a dozen kids there that day. Two of the kids do not have sponsors, but we did not have the heart to tell them, so we just had everyone write a letter. I did not realize at the time how much this was going to bother me, you see now we have two sponsorship update letters sitting on our table here with no one to send them to. so ironic .. orphaned twice in a life time. We leave in a week, and I sure would like to have these in the mail to a sponsor before we go. If you would like to be that person, please consider signing up for a monthly sponsorship , and we will send you an update letter this week.

We have another sponsorship that is an important one for us. As you likely know, Bekah is attending University in Bishkek. This allows for her to get visa support to live and study in Kyrgyzstan. She is not allowed to work in Kyrgyzstan for pay, but she does do an incredible amount of volunteer work. The first half of her Tuition is due in a few weeks, and she still needs about $2500 to cover this . We have been busy with so many other needs and projects that this one has just sort of crept up on us . If you would like to invest in Bekah and the work that she does in Kyrgyzstan, I know that she would be so thankful.
