Our Working Students from Kyrgyzstan

It is hard to believe that we have been home a month already. Time goes so quickly and we haven't posted. During this month, our young Kyrgz students have been getting acclimated to America, meeting many new people and working hard at their jobs. We are so proud of them on how they have adjusted and how they approach their jobs - with a very strong work ethic.

I stopped in their work places last Friday just to check on them....thought the pictures would be fun to see.

 Aikhan, one of our university students (on the right), is doing "great" according to her boss, Cary, in the center. We feel so bless to have him work with her as he has had much experience working with international students.
 Thought she looked quite official in her uniform. Aikhan loves her job and now reports she is very fast at sandwich making.

Zhenya, on the right, is learning some things about make-up from Bethany Koch at the salon where she is working.   She is also working for the Wientge family on their car lot and loves that too.

This weekend, David and I are heading to Canada for a planning meeting with our team.  Just today, we learned of two tragic events involving orphanage children we love and care for.  If appropriate, we will share more as we learn details.

We are currently planning to return to Kyrgyzstan in late August for a targeted training trip and university work.  Although we are here, we miss there and when we are with our young students,we realize how very much we love the people of that country.

Our journey continues
