THE TEAM HAS RETURNED TO CANADA AND READY TO HEAD BACK TO CENTRAL ASIA AND UKRAINE IMMEDIATELY!
Not surprising the team is ready to head back. We all return soon, in fact the return begins in March with the Schoolers and Johnstons heading to Ukraine and then on to Kyrygzstan. The Wrights will follow just a few weeks behind by arriving into Kyrgyzstan in April.
We will be joined by the Gebeles in April and then later by a team. (YOU MIGHT WANT TO JOIN THIS TEAM - JUST CONTACT US TO SIGN UP!)
Emma Wright (pictured above) has served as our Life Skill Specialist for over a year at Dayspring. She lived there and worked with the children. She was a HUGE asset to the program. We have loved her stories and her humbleness in all she contributed. One story she just gave to us really touches our hearts:
She tells of Jenya's first days of going to school once she came to Dayspring. Emma went to school to pick her up and students wanted to know who Emma was. Jenya shared that Emma was in her family and that she (Jenya) was now a home girl.
You see - Jenya before coming to Dayspring, Jenya was a street girl, an orphan in her thinking - and she now saw herself as a home girl - a girl having a home, a family. Oh how the tears flowed when we read Emma's report.
EMMA - MAY YOU BE BLESSED FOR ALL YOU HAVE GIVEN, FOR BEING A PART OF THE FAMILY..... WE LOVE YOU DEARLY. Your family will miss you. :(
