The heating system has been fully installed this week. This is the dining room for the men of Iskra. It was a dismal place just months ago. The changes are dramatic and you should see the smiles on the faces of the men as they walk around with us looking at the progress of their "home." We were blessed by donor to make this happen.
The dining room - the chairs might look okay, and tables too, yet they are broken, bent and in need of being replaced.
Today we ordered the electrical repairs - new wiring in the room, with lights, outlets and switches. Something they have not had in the past. It will all be done next week and THEN? THE CEILING GOES IN FOLLOWED BY THE WALLS AND THEN THE FLOOR. FINALLY NEW TABLES, CHAIRS, CUPS SPOONS, PLATES.
The windows are now all replaced in the dining room. Larissa said she now wants planters for plants for the men. We think that is a grand idea! This project of the windows is thanks to our friends and partners in Bishkek - Crosslink.
AND WHAT IS NEXT? WE WILL HAVE A GREAT PARTY FOR THEM - CELEBRATING THE IMPROVEMENT SO FAR. We have guests coming from Canada, Crosslink will be there and we will have a REAL PARTY ON FRIDAY NIGHT AT ISKRA. LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL.
