Each and every week we see incredible needs. Recently, we all felt we should stop for this one. Two weeks ago we met a 3 year old little girl in an orphanage. She has heart problems and some other issues. She is beautiful in every way. Her heart condition was worsening, but there were no resources in place to enable her to be taken to the hospital for treatment. However, that all changed.
On Thursday, little Akiela taken to Bishkek hospital and will get some much needed medical attention. Because of the gifts some of you gave to us for humanitarian use, we will be able to provide 10 days of personal care for this beautiful little girl. Thank you to those who made this, and many other things, possible and thank you for sharing the journey with us.

We (our Lamb team) have a slogan that is a reality for us. "As we go, stop for the one in front of you." We have learned that it is totally impossible for us to meet every need we see. We also have learned that God will bring certain ones right in front of us and say to us..."stop here." That is exactly what happened with "Jessica's family."
Last March, a team of social workers from Cleveland was on the ground here for two weeks. One afternoon, we were in the park, playing with children, passing out ice cream and getting ready to serve dinner to children from a local orphanage. We all went in the classroom on the park grounds with the children. I stepped out a moment and saw Lynn Johnston motioning to three children. They were not with the orphanage, but were very obviously hungry. He escorted them into the room and sat them down.
