Ruby hit the road again early this morning, leaving here about 3am, hitching a ride to the airport in Bishkek, a flight to Moscow and then on to Kiev Ukraine where she will be training this week.
I remained here in Tokmok where I will implementing the initial trainings in Staff Development for Mercy Foundation. I will catch up to Ruby in Ukraine next weekend and we will be involved with training for two weeks before returning here on the 26th
Tomorrow is Woman's day here, a national holiday. Today at church it was a wonderful celebration for all women.
Spring has arrived here, temperatures in the mid sixties and sunny. I wandered around the old airport site this afternoon and took a few 'snaps'. The camera really doesn't do justice to the magnificence of the mountains..... always snow capped as you face south.
This awesome natural beauty lies in stark contrast to the conditions many children and families face here. James is clear in his description of "undefiled religion" and we are grateful to all of you who have helped us with encouragement, prayer and resources. Together our 'visit' will be much more than just a visit. Lives are changed - forever. Thank You.
