WE ARE THRILLED AND EXCITED....LIKE THE SONG...I'm so excited....
Why? Soon our team will be arriving into the Bishkek airport geared up for the Christmas Blessing of a life time for 2000 of our dear Kyrgyzstan friends. Orphans, elderly and the disabled will be the subject of this blessing. Each will receive a small gift, vitamins for a year, and a Jesus Party to celebrate Christmas together.
The fundraising was a HUGE success - raising over $30,000 for the blessing. The project is patterned after Ed Dickson Ministry McJoyful Christmas in Ukraine where Ed takes thousands of kids to Mc Donalds for Christmas. They also get vitamins, and a gift. We have always loved this and have witnessed first hand the joy of taking an orphanage to Mc Donalds and seeing the excitement as they get their "happy meals." Well, first, Kyrgyzstan does not have Mc Donalds and second, we need to have a coordinator for this and that is where John steps up.
Last year was the first event in Kyrgyzstan - blessing 1,000 orphans. This was funded through the creative Pie in the Face contest, where volunteers step forward to get a pie in the face by raising $500 each. We had 40 plus volunteers this year. The Wrights will be leading a team - leaving Canada on December 6th - to head for Kyrgyzstan to carry out the wonderful event of blessing 2,000.
What ever you do - stay tuned for the updates and pictures as they conduct the Kyrgyzstan Christmas Blessing.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SPONSORSHIP AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH OF YOU.
