In thinking about our LAMb team and the team from Ohio in light of John Maxwell's statement, it is extremely exciting and humbling.
Here are some sights from the lives of children and adults who have been along our journey this week.
From the training room - SOS Children's Village - Bishkek
Training on Trauma Informed Care with Foster Mothers and Psychologists
The Ohio Team Touching the Lives of Children, Disabled and Elderly
David and I have watched from afar this trip as we have been busy training social workers and orphanage care caregivers. We heard about their experiences and here are a few pictures. To see it all, visit the Wright's blog: www.actofkindness.blogspot.com or LAMb blog: www.lambinternational.blogspot.com
At the Kemin Seniors Home
In a local village
We all shared in the birthday celebrations at this local orphanage
Janel and the Komuz
Two years ago, six children from this orphanage wanted a Komuz....the national instrument of Kyrgyzstan. We suggested they earn it and they did. Now two years later, those instruments are still being played everyday. We watched Janel played and were so amazed at her gift. She is playing in a concert this weekend. We also saw that the instrument she was playing was well worn and cracked. A friend of ours gave us a money gift to use any way we saw fit and getting a new instrument and a case just fit for us. Thanks, Jen Archer....Janel will continue now to play. She takes musical lessons four days a week on the komuz.
Two special brothers we have known for a long time.
A busy week has ended and we have one more to go. Training next week, visiting friends and doing much planning with the LAMb team. There are a number of exciting things to share in a few weeks.
Thanks for your encouragement and support.
