Sunday's Happenings

Just like at home, we are "enjoying" near 100 degree temperatures...David's favorite thing...However, that didn't stop the activity for today, of course.

Whenever we go to the Chinese church, hear what we hear and experience what we do, we are reminded again of how big God is and just how many people He calls His own around the globe. Today, a beautiful group of students from Hong Kong shared in the services. They are here scouting out mission opportunities for themselves.
These young people have such a beautiful spirit and a desire to serve God.

After lunch, we went over to the Mercy Foundation gym for the afternoon teen and youth services.  David had an opportunity to share and also pray with many of the young people there.  It was so good to see the familiar faces of young people we know. Everyone of these young people have hopes and dreams for the future and it was wonderful to be able to speak life into them today

This young man and his family escaped the chaos and rioting in Osh  a year and a half ago
and are making a new life in Tokmok.

Many young people came forward to pray for loved ones, themselves, school..the list continued.

Couldn't help but get this picture....aren't they beautiful.
Our time here is quite different as there are no international team members here from LAMb, with the exception of Emma and we haven't seen her yet....and almost all of the administration of Mercy Foundation, including Elder Yang, the founder and John and Christa, left yesterday.   Our Natalia arrives home tomorrow from a vacation and we will be so glad to see her! The busy schedule begins tomorrow...
