Providing a window to the world around them.

This is a cool story , and one that shows the importance of relationships .   Our young friend Tilek had his surgery a few weeks ago, and as soon as the operation was over , he was talking to Emma and all he was thinking and talking about was his new friends Tolik and Andre.  He was asking when he would be able to see them again .   He said how nice they were and he really enjoyed spending time with them .  
  These two boys have spent time themselves in an orphanage, and could tell you their own stories of heartache and grief, but now in a moment of stress for Tilek, they are what he turns to for comfort .  
  It is so great that through the donations from the pie challenge we were able to take these kids on outings like this, and provide a small window to the world around them .. something that they never would have experienced if it was not for your support .

So its always the way .. as soon as I post some needs and try to focus on just a couple, I receive word of many others .  That was the case here as well .  Today is the first day of the Aigula blanket donor challenge, and this week we are focusing on the homeless.  Then this morning I get an email from Larrisa  .  In the letter , she identifies just over $750 worth of immediate needs .   Its funny , I find my first reaction is that I can't post this because I have just posted so many needs , and I should not overwhelm our friends who are reading this.. But .. this is the reality of what we do .. we are overwhelmed every day , and it is not my job to protect you .. it is my job to let the needs be known , and God can sort it out from there .  so here is the letter ...

 Hallo  John  ,Julie    how are  you  ?  When do you came to Kyrgyzstan ?
