A Special Birthday Evening - A Russian Restaurant Discovery

Amidst all the difficult things we share on our blog, it is good to share wonderful things as well, of course. 

Tonight, we had the privlege of sharing Aihan's birthday with her host family - the Grewall's and Zhenya, the other young lady from Kyrgzystan.  John Grewall went on the search for the perfect Russian resturant and he found it not too far from us.  It was a delightful evening and I think the food, which tasted just like home to the girls, brought that touch of home to them in special way.  We are planning a return event in a couple of weeks.

Here's the crowd.....

Zhenya, me, Aikhan, Caroline and John Grewall and David. We even danced a little to Central Asian music afterwards, but you won't see those pictures! 

We will be returning for a very short term trip in about four weeks, but although the time we have there is short this time, the list of needs continues. We will be sharing the needs of the seniors home, men's home and Dayspring in the coming weeks.
