Well I guess it is time for another catch up post. Once again I have managed to fall a couple weeks behind . My last post was about Vladic wishing to go to school in the US for another year. Unfortunately we have not had much response to that need and he is down to the wire if he is going to get an appointment in time for his visa to return .
The last guests to the farm blessed the boys with a new ping pong table . This is such a great hit with them .
Often in the village there is no water, some times for days . So we have decided to put in a back up water source and an extra toilet and shower so that when there is no water the farm still will have a working washroom . We have almost finished the outside and they are working on the tiles in the shower now.
each of the last teams brought with them nurses uniforms . It has been like Christmas everywhere we go. They are all so excited, and even showing us the last uniforms they got from us at a Christmas party about 5 years ago. Orphanages, hospitals , clinics and the seniors home have all been blessed
Baktagul received her diploma for Nurses collage. This is an exciting event for her. She is preparing to go to Turkey to work in a hotel there as soon as her visa comes through
last week we butchered a cow and then delivered meat around the valley to orphanages and to the seniors home
the kashar has really started to come together. It would be hard to recognize . New windows walls floors
the biggest change was the balcony
its a great place to hang out for the boys
the front hall has been converted into a shared kitchen for the yurt dwellers as well as the kashar.
here is what it looked like when we started
In the living room there was no window so we put one in and did some paint and wallpapering
We have had several parties and celebrations there in the last few weeks . It is a great place for guests
As the kids are all finishing up their school year they are looking towards the fall and where they will be going We have about 8 kids from the farm that we need to pay tuition for as well as living expenses. we also have other kids not on the farm that we assist as well . I will start posting some of their stories as we try to raise their tuition's. With living expenses we will be looking for about $15 000 over the next couple of months.
