Stay in Stay warm

With current temperatures reaching record lows in parts of Kyrgyzstan right now , people are recommended  to stay in and stay warm.   I am glad that our friends are not heeding that warning, the fact is that if they stay in, people could die !    
Morning frost settling over the farm 
Current news from Kyrgyzstan
"BISHKEK, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- The cold winter weather has caused the deaths of 15 homeless people in the Kyrgyz capital this week, local authorities reported Friday. They were found to have died of hypothermia."
"AKIPRESS.COM - Parliamentarians suggest to give 1-week break for school children due to extremely cold temperatures that came to Kyrgyzstan these days. "We all feel how cold it is outside. Not speaking of the regions, we have -30C in some parts of the city. It's very struggling for the children to attend ".

In the last couple days  they have had to make several food and coal drops.  We have even had to have Dr Tatyana come pout and make some house calls.  One senior had fallen and cracked her hip. Auxana had a minor stroke, and another lady has a herniated back.   These situations are all compounded when it is so cold out.  Once again we are blessed that we have the coal and food to be able to respond quickly to help.  We are also blessed that we have such a fantastic modern Dr that works with our team to help people through the system. 

The little baby that Aiperi has been helping is doing great.  when it was six weeks old it was still under six lbs, now since the formula has been supplies, it is now over 11 lbs.  What a blessing. 

You know it is cold outside when the door handles start to freeze over.  But in side the zucchini have started to bloom.  

With the chores done and families helped, there is still a little time to have a good game of UNO or Dutch Blitz 

Sunday  Julie and I will head for the city,  We have to be at the airport by 3 am for our flight to Cincinnati for the training that we will be attending under David and Jayne Schooler   
We are about $350 away from covering all the expenses for this great experience.   I have been talking to Vlad and he is excited as well. and wants us to take lots of notes so we can brief him when we get back .  We are praying that one day we will be able to have David and Jayne in person to the farm .. 

If you would like to help us attend this conference, please use the donate link on the side.
